Autumn 2014
Issue 36

Important upcoming autumn fairs: NYICS, The Rug Show and the London Design Festival plus North Carolina's High Point and Maison et Objet in Paris. The recent fibre work by Sheila Hicks shown at Design Miami/Basel makes a big hit. Rugs come from new French designer Thomas Tramp, recent Eindhoven graduate Debby Yu, and Taher Asad Bakhtiari with his striking kilims. We look at modular rug systems and look around Kit Kemp's new London hotel Ham Yard, while US rug retailers share their favourite interior projects.

Also featuring: German designers Blond & Bieber, the TextielMuseum Tilburg, horsehair fabrics, graffiti motifs and the ombre effect and New York designers cooperative, Colony.
