Slade Rug 8x10 | Design Within Reach
British designer Christopher Farr blends geometric sophistication and modernist notions of beauty with ancient rug weaving techniques in his five DWR-only rugs. The result is a series of elegant pieces that have the power of abstract canvases for the floor. Inspired by such painters as Mark Rothko and Ellsworth Kelly, Farr approaches the floor as the fifth wall to create omnidirectional fields of vivid color and harmonious balance that can enlarge the feeling of a room or bring balance and focus to the elements of space. Slade, named for the Slade School of Fine Art, provides a harmonious three-paneled field of warm and cool tones intersected by an arresting red stripe, and is eminently suitable for domestic or commercial environments. All Farr's designs are hand spun and handtufted of fine wool and manually dyed in small batches to create rich tonal nuances in the strands. Each piece is guaranteed to grow more beautiful with time as the wool's natural lanolin emerges and invigorates the surface, creating enhanced luster over the years. Made in India. DWR exclusive.
