Designer rugs

Here in Australia it seems that every time you open a homewares magazine yet another designer is trying their hand at designing rugs. The cross-pollination makes sense of course, and it was probably only a matter of time. Indeed, Designer Rugs has collaborated with quite a few designers to create some striking ranges of rugs, including...

Fashion and textile designer Georgia Chapman of Vixen...

Pamela Easton and Lydia Pearson of renown Australian fashion team Easton Pearson...

Creative design dynamo Catherine Martin...

Jewellery and homewares designers Dinosaur Designs...

Internationally famous fashion designer Akira Isogawa...

And now Australian textile, accessories & homewares designer Nicola Cerini (known mainly for her handbags) has recently added another string to her bow with the release of a very vibrant range of rugs available through her own company.

The seed pod rug (which is my favourite in the range)...

The ocean inspired Neptunes Necklage rug...

The Poppy rug...

The Club Rush rug inspired by native plants...

And the very vivid Impatiens rug...
