Legendary fashion designer Elie Saab collaborated with The Rug Company on a collection inspired by his signature design elements: femininity, luxury and modernity. Saab created three modern rug designs that revolve around themes such as foliage, floral motifs, texture and abstraction. The collection was presented in Beirut at The Rug Company showroom in the presence of media and other guests.
The rug shown above is ‘In Bloom’, it features oversized florals in shimmering silk tones of teal, gun metal and green. Challenging the traditional format of a rug, the blooms burst from both ends of the rug and reach for its centre, creating an elegant mirror pattern.
Lace Leaves translates the delicate lace motifs prevalent in Elie Saab’s work. Abstracted leaves in raised silk yarns float on a matte wool background of the same colour, allowing the natural lustre of the hand spun silk to depict the design in an elegant and impactful way.
The Brushstrokes design is an abstraction of painterly movements. Many subtle colours are at play in this design, gently merging together in shimmering silk yarns. The meticulous craftsmanship of The Rug Company’s weavers ensures that each tone of the palette is perfectly matched in lustrous silk, and then carefully blended with its neighbours to give a subtle but highly decorative effect.
