EAST MEETS WEST RUGS BLEND ASIAN DESIGN, NZ WOOL DESIGN Ayame round rug by Akira Isogawa. Susan Redman Details: Rug prices start from $4950. Call Designer Rugs on 1300 802 561 or visit designerrugs.com.au AT the recent launch of Akira Isogawa's richly patterned rug collection, the contrast between the cold and grey of Sydney in winter and the designer's warm and colour- ful designs could not have been greater. Teaming with Designer Rugs in his third collaboration, Akira Isogawa has offered seven rugs for a collection called Hirameki, which means inspiration in Japanese. Exploring his traditional Japanese heri- tage and the celebration of Australia's love of colour, Mr Isogawa has translated this sensibility into some ornate designs that are influenced by methods of producing beautiful and elaborate textiles. In the Ayame and Shibori rugs the beauty of New Zealand wool is mixed with the more durable and environmentally sustainable attributes of bamboo. The development of the Ayame and Kiku patterns came about when the designer integrated silk block kimono fabric decor- ation with traditional Japanese floral mo- tifs of iris and chrysanthemum. Two other designs are also inspired by ancient Asian textile production methods. Shibori is a design that literally means twist. It is based on a unique tie-dye textile, originating from Japan and features a floral and wave motif. Another rug is called Batik, which un- surprisingly features a pattern based on Bali's traditional water-resistance dying technique whereby wax is used to hand paint on the cloth before it is dyed. Every rug in the Hirameki collection is hand-made to a standard size of 2m x 3m, and the round rugs have a 2.5m diameter. Found in high-end residences, it is not surprising these rugs are expensive, too. Consider them a luxurious investment. • FREE Measure & Quote • 10 Years Guarantee Shop 1 14 Cammeray Road, Cammeray Showroom Open 6 Days www.designarobe.com.au BUILDING LIC NO 204289C 9908 5503 2220426 26/6 WARDROBES BIGGEST SALE It s our Add some Accent value to your home Roman & Roller Blinds* Curtains* 131913 For full terms & conditions visit the Accent website *Discounts apply to selected products and fabrics only.
