One decks floors far and wide with the finest threads, the other is a stalwart of the British fashion scene. So it’s no surprise a collaboration between The Rug Company and Christopher Kane should get tongues wagging.
The collection (opens in new tab) featuresfive handcrafted rugs which run the style gamut from botanical-inspired prints to the designer's distinctly modern take on pattern.
As a nod to Kane's Lanarkshire roots there are Scottish threads running through much of the collection. The design of Wave Construct (above) sees him playing with waves and straight lines.
The geometric design of Grid Construct (above) is inspired by the constructivism movement and nods to the Mackintosh chairs in Glasgow's famous Willow Tearooms.
Inspired by Kane’s botanical fashion collection, the Botanical Anatomy rug subverts and amplifies the traditional floral motif to create a highly decorative statement design. Handknotted from a combination of rich silk yarns and Tibetan wool, the rug isavailable in two pared-back dusky colours, nude (above) or grey.
There's even a signature cushion in the range, inspired by Kane’s famous botanical fashion collection.Called Botanical Anatomy, the colourful, playful design uses Aubusson tapestry to subvert the traditional floral motif.
Rugs start at £1,729 and the cushion is £550. For more information visit www.therugcompany.com (opens in new tab)
