Botanical Rugs Trend
Bright blooms and branches remind us that the winter months are dwindling as foliage grows at our feet. Bold impressions of the natural world are a breath of fresh air for Spring 2015.
We were inundated with submissions following our request for botanical designs on carpets and textiles for COVER 38 and the vibrant interpretations of flora and fauna are spreading all around. Here are some additional examples of the growing trend for laying undergrowth underfoot with botanical rugs.
An erratum in COVER 38 meant that the Divâne rug by Galerie Chevalier was miscredited. The correct credit for this rug can be found below.
