Carpet design’s new horizon

The Montgolfier Collection from EGE is setting new trends in custom carpet design.

Carpet design’s new horizon


September 29th, 2015

It was the unique beauty and experience of a hot air balloon ride that inspired EGE’s Creative Director, Adrien Alexander, to create the Montgolfier Collection – a new range of six textile flooring designs that has captured the imagination of our design community – right across Australia.

Adrien found himself suspended high above the Africa continent in his hot air balloon, breathless from the boundless beauty of the countryside and the never-ending horizons that surrounded him.

“This is exactly how the inspiration for the Montgolifer Collection came to me,” he comments in the official presentation of the collection.

Now available for the first time in Australia through RC&D, the collection has captured the imaginations of our local market with its organic patterning, an abstract interpretation of the African landscape.


The collection’s colourways, too, resonate with our collective love for muted tones – greys, charcoals and silvers, brightened by a bold pop of yellow or burgundy should we dare!

From dry savannahs, to glittering gold mines, blue salt lakes and burnt forests, Adrien weaves the spirit of the Montgolfier Collection into reality, in multi-layers with multi-level loop textures.

The range is available in a tough rugged loop pile – ideal for commercial settings; as well as a plush cut pile which exudes the perfect amount of luxury for environments such as hotels and function centres.

Launched in Australia as part of Sydney Indesign, the Montgolfier Collection is available exclusively through RC&D in Australia. Colourways can be customised to suit the interior environment.
