Inspired by Bohemian culture with more than a dash of bourgeois, leading European rug manufacturer Louis de Poortere launch two exciting new collections. BoBohemian features tribal patchwork kilims alongside muted Persian motifs with carefully distressed finishes. Silver Lining offers soft flowing floral blooms and plenty of Oriental flair.
Louis de Poortere has been weaving fine rugs and carpets since 1929, their Vintage Collection took the rug industry by storm when introduced with worldwide success. Woven on traditional jacquard Wilton looms using a combination of cotton chenille and high quality wool, to create a fashionable flat weave construction. Each beautiful rug has multiple layers of texture, distressed areas and intricate stitching detail to give a true ‘vintage’ look. All rugs are hand finished with reinforced corners for added durability.
Offering two distinctly different forms, both drawing from traditional Middle Eastern textile art, BoBo Tribe is bold and full of character, using Tribal Kilim patterns in a multi panel patchwork design. The six colour options are bold and daring with an over dyed finish that will suit both traditionalist and the modernist interior decorator. BoBo Flowers utilises Oriental Persian splendour to create soft motifs framed in a traditional border, here the colours are softer and more tranquil, ideal to add harmony to your colour scheme. The flat woven construction is 1500 grams per square metre consisting of 85% cotton chenille and 15% wool.
Available in two stunning designs, Diamonds and Twinkle were born from an original Fading World design, areas have been carefully erased and parts of each design is highlighted through a dazzling high gloss polyester yarn. Diamonds features a central pole star medallion of three distinctive diamond shapes, reminiscent of old Persian Hamadan rugs. Available in five colourways of Trinitario Brown, Obsidian Sky, Douglas Green, Pale Ruby and Bistre Blanket. Twinkle presents an all-over field of miniature blooms on trailing stems in four dramatic colourways of Mayan Sun, Slate Quarry, Frosted Sage and Cupcake. Using the same flat woven construction with a yarn content consisting of 85% cotton chenille and 15% high gloss polyester. Available in ten colour options.
Both collections are woven in nine standard size options ranging from 60 cm x 90 cm up to 280 cm x 360 cm, ensuring there is a size just right for any room in your home. Pricing starts at a reasonable £85.00.
