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 72 anticipates the second edition of COVER Connect New York with an in-depth preview of the 38 premium rug brand on show. Further previews include the London Design Festival, Decorex and High Point while our review section covers the recent Las Vegas show and Domotex asia/CHINAFLOOR.
The issue focuses on creativity in rug design and textiles, starting with an exclusive report on Tissage’s new Chroma People campaign, which reimagines the way to design and promote rug collections. We enjoy the fantastically fun Endless Epic Berlin project by Rug Star—which again places rugs into new contexts—and the beautiful textile art of Signe Emdal. ABC Italia and Amini celebrate 60 years of rug art excellence and we introduce new brands Maison Rhizomes, Unknown Carpets and Atelier Talasin.
The use of AI in design comes under the spotlight and we report on a new flax project by Mourne Textiles. Interior design and architect firm Gabellini Sheppard discusses its use of rugs and we report from WOW!House at the Design Centre Chelsea Harbour. More contents comes in the shape of new collections by Beni Rugs and Christopher Farr x Commune and current exhibitions by Kustaa Saksi and Sheila Hicks.
