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 66, Spring 2022, is packed full of new rugs, new collections and new ideas to guide us through the year ahead. Uplifting colour abounds from Dena Lawrence’s spectacular 100% silk carpets in the brightest shades, Liz Collins’ rugs for Emma Gardner that explode with vibrancy and Margrethe Odgaard’s Rothko-esque wall tapestries for Ca’lyah, to our report on the ‘Sustainable Colour’ exhibition at the Design Museum in Helsinki about textile dyeing and Raw Color’s Temperature Textiles, where the colour tells the story of climate change. We talk to Ishkar about producing rugs in Afghanistan and their new Courts and Fields collection with artist Christopher Le Brun, and to interior designer Claudia Afshar about her new rug series with Mehraban. Other highlights include Christopher Farr’s new rug collection with Commune, a report on the latest tufting trend, Henzel Studio’s new Oxidation rugs with the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and the refined work of Mae Engelgeer. Our ReThinking the Rug section returns with reports on colour trends and online sales, while the Trends pages focus on tiger rugs.
