Now what do you think of these then?
I know this is an excitable start but I’m quite excited. The geometric trend has been around for a while now – it’s certainly enduring – and this is a new and interesting take on it. It’s the new collection by Charlotte Lancelot for GAN available at Woven and I want some of it.
The only question is which bit. I love the pouffes in the top image – that dark grey with the ivory cross stitch would work perfectly in just about any room in my house.
But then again, I’m a bit over the cow rug in the back of the sitting room and one of these might do the job perfectly…These arty shots don’t quite show the rugs in their entirety, but basically it’s two thirds cross stitch – grey on white with the top third divided into different patterns: white on grey, solid grey and a stripe element. You can see from the image below that it’s a kind of patchwork effect – another strong trend at the moment.
The range includes these rugs, the pouffes and cushions of different sizes and the idea is that they will all mix and match together. I’m a huge fan of GAN rugs as they really are, to coin a phrase, like works of art and will really bring a focal point to the room.
Yes I can hear your next question and no they’re not cheap but they’re handmade and can you imagine how long that would take? A rug that is 170cm by 240cm – which is a good size is £1399 (you can have one that is 2m by 3m for £1950) and the cushions start at £140 while the pouffes are £720 and are 52cm wide.
What do you think? Is the pastel, geometric, patchwork trend doing it for you?
