MARIE ANTOINETTE EMERALD
Patterned handmade rectangular rug
A unique original collection designed for Golran by artist and designer Isabella Sodi from Florence. She transmits her precious aesthetic and cultural know-how of interior design and haute couture through her personal interpretation of the carpet.
The collection includes few items charged with a powerful emotional impact, suspended between past and future.It is firmly anchored to tradition, starting from the production site - Nepal - where the most important “carpet making tool” is experience.The Memories collection includes all the colors and suggestions from the natural world, merged into a sophisticated balance. Colors are never “gaudy” but barely whispered: chalk and limestone whites and shades of gray of clay, slate, quartz, and onyx; dusty cyan hues of agate and bold shades of lapis lazuli; the nuances of red in the progression of coral to terracotta; jade and emerald green; the golden hues of amber and topaz; peat and mud browns; and the black of ebony and hematite. Clear and opalescent in the brilliance of silk, bamboo and soy; with the depth conveyed by a matt finish on wool and linen; naturally imperfect in undyed wools and intentionally imperfect in the handcrafted abrash effect.
Colors, which are chosen with a highly personal approach, centre on slight nuances that vibrate amidst the sheen of silk and the "dusty" finish of wool and linen. In this blend of fibers and weaves, the artful touches of slight imperfections are expertly measured to create carpets that also enhance the allure of instinct and skilled craftsmanship.
