Carpet Edition, the new Foliage collection welcomes summer



A collection created to intertwine fantasy and concreteness, a “pop” spirit and the quality of the fibers and craftsmanship: this is Foliage, the new line of four rugs designed by Romani Saccani Architects for Carpet Edition and dedicated to one season of the year.

 Leaves are the inspiration of the designs, from botanical cataloging to their actual form: stylized profiles of different leaf varieties trace the contours of the rugs, different from each other in their margins, geometry, sizes and colors, that evoke the different shades and hues of the vegetation in the different Seasons.

To launch the new Foliage collection, the first rug that Carpet Edition has selected to present is Summer, a lively and bright homage to summer, defined by the architects as a “sophisticated stratification of exotic and tropical varieties on a sunny and bright color scale, suspended between the sky and the sea”.

The profile of the rug is reminiscent of the typical leaves found in lush virgin forests, and its saturated and contrasting colors recall the warm climate of summer.

The central axis, like a leaf’s median vein, becomes a border for two different methods of workmanship, which is necessary to give two opposing textures: the right side is pile in New Zealand wool, while the left side is bouclé, and the contrast between the softness of one and the consistency of the other is a fundamental detail to transmit the same tactile experience as when you touch a leaf, smooth on the top and rough or rippled on the back.

The story of the new collection Foliage by Carpet Edition will continue with three other rugs respectively dedicated to autumn, winter and spring.
