Trailing the successful launch of Julie Paterson’s first range with luxury rug manufacturer Designer Rugs, Julie has launched a range of 6 new rugs entitled ‘from the sketchbook’.
The designs for this new collection began life as a series of drawings and notes taken from the visual diaries Julie used every day and turned into a group of paintings made from off cuts of timber found on building sites.
This work is quite ephemeral, hard to define, experimental and abstract, offering a collection of rugs with a fresh, direct and highly creative approach.
There are two distinct themes in ‘from the sketchbook’:
‘Industrial Belt’, ‘Ned’ and ‘North Facing’ come from imagined plans and elevations of old factory sites and the marks and scars left behind from industrial wastelands found on the outskirts of most cities- Empty land that is slowly being reclaimed by nature.
‘Family Tree’, ‘Roots’ and ‘Oyster Farm’ come from a more organic source – debris found on the beach after a storm; mysterious beings hiding in rock pools; fragments dug up from the garden, hinting at the struggle of life against the elements.
The emphasis in this range has been on interpreting the essence of the original paintings as closely as possible, translating the textural effects through experimenting with a combination of pile heights, piles and yarn textures.
The bold colour palette of Julie Paterson’s relaxed; modern designs complement today’s contemporary naturals in domestic and commercial environments.
Dimensions: Standard size 200cm x 300cm
Delivery time: 8 weeks
