For March 2013 at Design Week Nina Campbell will launch her first design led rug collection with Stark Carpet. Echoing the lightness and movement of Nina’s fabrics and textures, the collection comprises of nine designs and takes names inspired by her global influences: Rio Rita, Campbell Damask, Speckles, Deauville, Trouville, Jalousie, Gilty, Veneziana and Kauka.
Produced using the most traditional hand-tufting techniques by highly skilled craftsmen weavers, the cut and loop piles create wonderful sculpted patterns that retain the textural elements of Nina’s fabric and wallpaper designs. The rugs use a combination of wool and art silk that retains a gorgeous sheen, durability and feel, but at a more affordable price. Made in 4 standard sizes but will there will be a bespoke colour, size and scale service for commercial projects through Stark Carpet.
Nina’s signature is in her detail and this collection offers highly versatile rugs that bring design in to your home whilst maintaining your personal style. Inspired by a classic motif in Islamic architecture, Nina Campbell’s Jalousie design pulls together the different elements in a room to create an easy calmness. The Rio Rita is made using colour on colour to create an emphasis on texture and offers a subtle motif, whereas the Campbell Damask uses tonal layers to create a softer effect in a damask design. The Speckles, however, offers a sumptuous texture, with its beige velvet base and raised design creating a subtle contrast with the muted aqua.
