Exquisite, expertly crafted rugs in a vast variety of styles is The Rug Company’s expertise, the product of their dedicated network of designers, craftspeople, and artisans producing the highest quality rugs in elegant designs. Their newest project is a collaboration with Mary Katrantzou, a globally recognized Greek fashion designer known for her signature bold prints, tapped to impart her iconic style to contemporary rugs.
The capsule collection, entitled “Nostalgia”, comprises of seven delightfully vibrant rugs evoking her past collections, as well as her childhood. “Nostalgia is always part of my narrative, and something that's really fitting in people's homes,” Mary says. The result is a collection of dynamic, playful, yet refined area rugs.
Mary Katrantzou is no stranger to the world of interiors; her mother was an interior designer and her father a textile engineer. Before settling on studying Textile Design at Central Saint Martins, she had a brief stint studying Architecture at RISD. Her London-based eponymous clothing line was launched in 2008, having since grown to international renown.
“We are an image-led brand and print is so transferable across different disciplines. Being able to create context beyond my runway collections and build a lifestyle brand has always been my intention. Filtered beauty through design can impact how we feel whether it’s through what we choose to wear or what we choose to surround ourselves with. I chose to collaborate with The Rug Company as there was an authentic synergy between the two brands - a genuine appreciation for craftsmanship and a passion for bold patterns and unique beauty, values which we share at Mary Katrantzou.”
