When it comes to iconic homewares, there’s none more steeped in history than the Wedgwood brand. Producing unique tableware designs since 1759, the company become known for collaborating with some of history’s most talented designers, such as Eric Ravilious, Keith Murray, Susie Cooper and Eduardo Paolozzi – and more recently, fashion designers Vera Wang and Jasper Conran.
In celebration of Wedgwood’s 250th Anniversary Tour Australian, rug company Designer Rugs have been chosen to produce a series of limited hand-crafted rugs using well-known Wedgwood designs.
“It is an absolute honour to work with an iconic brand such as Wedgwood,” says Yosi Tal, Managing Director of Designer Rugs, “a brand that, like Designer Rugs, believes in the importance of innovative and timeless design.”
Designer Rugs will produce five rug designs made from 100% pure New Zealand Wool; ‘The Dancing Hours’, ‘The Palladian’, ‘The NeoClassical’, ‘Renaissance Gold’ – all in exclusive limited editions of 30 – and the ‘Sydney Cove Medallion’ (pictured above) in a limited run of just 10 rugs.
This collaboration sees the iconic Wedgwood brand move into a new realm of design. “Wedgwood is a name inextricably linked to classic elegance and Designer Rugs are renowned for excellence in custom design,” explains Fiona Irving of WWRD Australia.
“Together, we have created an indulgent rug collection which beautifully reflects the Wedgwood aesthetic and celebrates our joint commitment to artistry and craftsmanship.”
This unique rug collection will be launched at exclusive events in Brisbane (March 1) and in Sydney (March 5). The invitation only events will be officiated by special guest Lord Wedgwood of Barlaston.
