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.
In the Spring issue of COVER we are joined by stylish guest editors Milanese rug brand cc-tapis. Ahead of Salone del Mobile in April—where COVER will be distributed—cc’s Nelcya Chamszadeh, Fabrizio Cantoni and Daniele Lora offer readers their lowdown on the best of Milan, the places, spaces, designers and art that have inspired them. Founder of SaloneSatellite Marva Griffin Wilshire, designers Studiopepe and Cristina Celestino and artist Mahmoud Saleh Mohammadi all feature in the cc-tapis section. In the company’s guide to Milan expect to find the best places to eat, drink, shop and be inspired.
This issue also offers exclusive insight into new rug collections and designs from the recent international design fairs of January and beyond. Reports from Domotex Hannover, Maison et Objet Paris, imm Cologne and AmericasMart Atlanta offer our viewpoint on the latest looks and happenings in the global rug market. We also glance ahead to what 2019 will bring in terms of new work and upcoming events with previews of the COVER Luxury Brands show at DOMOTEX asia/CHINAFLOOR, ICFF New York, Salone del Mobile Milan and High Point Market.
In the rest of the issue rugs are born of a multitude of locations and inspirations, in all shapes and sizes, from our round rug trend and Simone Post’s upcycled trainer rugs for Adidas to Amadi Carpets’ Kuba collection and lips rug by Crosby Street Studios shown at Kips Bay Palm Beach. Contemporary Iranian rugs from Shahdad by Ashkiyoun sit alongside OLK Manufactory’s Ukrainian rugs and tapestries, Moooi’s latest Nordic-inspired printed carpets, and Irene Infantes’ latest rug collaboration with Spanish gallerist Pepe Cobo, which adorns one of our two cover designs.
