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 COVER 69, Winter 2022, our new section titled The Story focuses on the important subject of sustainability. Interviews with trends consultant Philip Fimmano, eco-focused designer Jennifer Jones of Niche Interiors and seaweed textile creative Violaine Buet offer different perspectives on the topic of circular design and green products. Art rugs are a big news in the issue, which reports on Helen Yardley’s rug exhibition at the Ruthin Crafts Centre in Wales, Liz Collins’ ‘Mischief’ show at Touchstones Rochdale and the astounding 80x80 rug project by TAN. Furthermore, COVER talks to Nepali artist Tsherin Sherpa about his use of rugs as art, and we take a look at the Cadrys exhibition at the Powerhouse in Sydney to celebrate the brand’s 70th anniversary. New London-based rug brand Peter Page comes under the spotlight and we take a look at new collections by Zandra Rhodes and Fuli, Zollanvari and SoFarSoNear Milan, Deirdre Dyson and the latest Tomorrow’s Tiger rug by Ai Weiwei. In the interiors section, we feature a report on Kips Bay Dallas and an interview with interior designer Rayman Boozer, while our events pages look to January events including Domotex Hanover and COVER Connect Las Vegas.
