The Cross collection is a reinterpretation of the traditional tufted rug, creating a unique visual interaction between rug and the floor underneath.
There are three designs in the collection: Cross Cut, Cross Border and Cross. In all three designs the tactile tufted surface is undercut by a strong silhouette that’s equal parts contemporary and comforting. Vivid viscose threads are spun with new wool, creating a melange effect.
The series begins with Cross Cut, a design in which the whole surface of the rug is formed as an open grid, the geometric lines merging into an organic pattern
at one end.
The design of Cross Border features a more solid surface area, with the cutaway edges at two corners allowing the floor to be glimpsed underneath.
The simplicity of Cross has a slightly more traditional appeal, combining a graphic silhouette with a highly tactile construction. A cutaway effect of block fringes on the edging completes the rug.
As well as muted natural tones and greys, the Cross series colour palette includes bolder tones as well.
