COVER: Modern Carpets & Textiles for Interiors is a quarterly magazine focused on the best fine rugs and textiles being designed and made today. COVER also looks at market trends and innovations and examines the role of rugs and textiles in interior design.
COVER 67, Summer 2022, anticipates new events such as the Milan Design Week in June. Ahead of the show, we talk to rug brands cc-tapis, Amini Carpets and Jan Kath plus Nina Yashar of Nilufar Gallery to see what exciting new collections and exhibitions they will be offering.
The issue’s exclusive rug reveal is Rug Star’s collaboration with Stark Studio Rugs, a visual story of making beautiful hand-knotted rugs. More new collections come from Topfloor by Esti, Jennifer Manners and Jaipur. The issue also introduces Hamburg-based brand M2Rugs, the new Aracari online shop selling crafted goods from South America and Tom Atton Moore’s stunning tufted artworks.
The Rug Company celebrates 25 years of collaborations with the Sarabande collection and we take a look at the growing bast fibre trend. Other brands that come under the spotlight are Integral Thread Studio from Denver, creative rug company Lalana from Buenos Aires and American weaver Claudia Mills. COVER speaks to interior designer Kit Kemp about her recent rug collaboration with Annie Selke and we revisit the best spaces from the Kips Bay Decorator Show House Palm Beach.
