Designer Rugs has unveiled the vibrant next act in designer Greg Natale’s exploration of organic patterns and irregular motifs – The Composites Collection.
June 27th, 2017
The Composites Collection is a brand new family of hand knotted rugs from Greg Natale and Designer Rugs, complementing the designer’s recently released Composites Collection of glass mosaic tiles with Bisazza. The collection of hand-made rugs sees Tibetan Wool and lustrous bamboo together with an exciting and playful aesthetic.
“I’m well known for my love of uniformed, geometric pattern and it’s not hard to see in the past that I have always been quite mathematical in my love of geometrics and pattern repeats, but the truth is that I always use organics!” says Natale, “ I have always been a believer that for a geometric print to work, it should be paired back with or played off against an organic. For me, this new chapter is exciting because I had great fun in creating a range of organic, nature-inspired patterns that I can use alongside all my usual geometrics. It’s the full picture, now!”
Comprising eight daring new designs, the collection expands on Natale’s offering of patterned floor coverings, joining his existing two rug collaborations and the one wall-to-wall carpet range, all with Designer Rugs.
“The process of executing these free form patterns in hand knotted wool and bamboo has been a real creative challenge, one I have loved every minute of. The Designer Rugs team are the best in their game and working with them to achieve this broad offering of colour and movement in flooring is a real honour and I can’t wait to see how people embrace them.”
