Tapis Rouge - Angelina Askeri rug collection

Tapis Rouge shows abstract textured rug collection

Russian company Tapis Rouge has produced an abstract rug collection based on sketches by Moscow interior designer Angelina Askeri.

The collection includes fourteen designs, each with different treatments of line and colour. Some feature angular, multi-faceted shapes juxtaposed with spontaneous and fluid lines, while others have a more strict grid-like composition of exact squares. They each use colour to block out shapes ranging from vibrant reds to neutral beige, and a combination of high pile and flat weave textures creates distinction between close shades of the same colour. There are also gold threads woven into the backing in places.

Angelina was inspired by the spontaneity of Russian artist Wassily Kandinsky, whose late 19th and early 20th century paintings featured combinations of linear shapes, sporadic markings and concentric circles.

The rugs are handwoven in Nepal with a blend of New Zealand wool and Chinese silk, and were on show in the Rossana Orlandi gallery in Milan.
