ENDLESS SUMMER - An exuberant exploration of traditional Japanese design. This vibrant juxtaposition of traditionally executed elaborate flowers with angular patterns is rendered thoroughly modern through its mirror graphic style repetition.
HYDRA - Referencing Greek mythology, Hydra is predominantly Mediterranean blue in tones. Influenced by Middle Eastern mosaics, repeated boarders and lavish curlicues, curves and lines are used elaborately.
QIN - Inspired by the rich and culture infused history of China during the highly influential Qin dynasty. From introducing uniform written word to coins and roads, Qin’s greatest triumph was the centralisation of power and commissioning The Great Wall of China. Masterfully represented through a rich palette and the juxtaposition of nature and chaos, with battling dark curving dragons and feminine, floral motifs.
The Tang dynasty was known as one of the greatest empires in the medieval world. Tang's legacy was a golden age of Chinese literature and art, with a strong and benevolent ruler, successful diplomatic relationships, economic expansion, and the nurturing of culture and cosmopolitan style. This magnificent rug represents this sense of harmony through its central motif, featuring an elliptical shape providing insight into green dragons feasting on new and dynamic ideas, surrounded by a perfect symmetrical series of borders. Flourishing blooms, representing the new social elite replacing traditional aristocratic order, add a sense of renewal, coupled with an Aegean blue palette which contrasts playfully with a warm tangerine base.
FORMENTERA -An island off Spain’s Ibiza, famous for its natural beauty and rustic charm, Formentera references intricate mosaic and traditional tapestries.
ISLAND SONG - This rug is signature Camilla in its playful sophistication. An exploration in dynamic graphic symmetry, Island Song screams “Spanish Summer” with an oriental twist. Drenched in rich tropical tones, Island Song offers a commentary on ancient and modern ritual.
