ARTWORK ON THE FLOOR RUG DESIGN ELIZABETH BRINGS INNOVATION TO DESIGNING ARTISTIC RUGS Susan Redman Emma Elizabeth (left) and one of her designs (above), the pink diamond rug. DETAILS Emma Elizabeth's Diamond and Marble rugs are available through Designer Rugs Australia, 1300 802 561, designerrugs.com.au EMMA Elizabeth is among Sydney's most innovative and in- spiring designers. She lives and breathes interior styling and product design and has many strings to her bow. Indeed, she swaps roles as stylist, editor and creative pro- ducer as easily as she crafts new collections of furniture and fur- nishings for the home. Lately, she has turned her attention to rugs. Her first collection for Designer Rugs Australia was inspired by the multi-facets of cut diamonds. The rugs were an instant hit at last year's London Design Festival and named one of Elle Decoration UK's top 10 designs of the show. Emma Elizabeth's new collec- tion shows her interest in marb- les. Named Cat's Eye, Swirl and Twirl after different marble types, three Marble rugs were exhibited at this year's Milan Design Week. Designer Emma says the rugs are hand-tufted from top quality 100 per cent New Zealand wool. ''By using natural fibres, like wool, a great rug can be passed down to design-savvy generations. ''It will stand the test of time in its look and durability,'' she says. The designer regards her rugs as artworks for the floor. ''They add a new dimension to any space,'' says Elizabeth. ''Rugs are usually hand-tufted so there's a lot of time and crafts- manship that goes into their cre- ation, hence they are often an expensive item. Yet, a rug's an investment piece that can be taken with you when you move.'' DESIGNS INSPIRED BY BIG APPLE LIVING in New York has motiv- ated Academy Award-winning Australian production designer Catherine Martin to create a beautiful new rug collection. Martin said she was ''tremen- dously inspired'' by the Deco feel of many New York buildings which ''encapsulate the miracle of the modern age''. ''I find it absolutely overwhelm- ing and thrilling to see how 20th- century architects have looked to the future while still referencing the past with intense decoration, creating dynamic, sky-scraping forms,'' Martin said. The Catherine Martin Deco Col- lection is made from Tibetan wool and silk. The colour palette, which includes combinations such as steel blue, amethyst and cham- pagne, alongside dark chocolate, topaz and tobacco, is as subtle as it is sumptuous. In collaboration with Designer Rugs, Martin's exquisite range of five hand-knotted rugs will be released this month. View the collection at designerrugs.com.au.
