I’m not usually one for bright colors or lots of colors or primary colors or any color, really, but lately I’ve been rethinking my predilection for subtle shades. The catalyst? The cheery yet sophisticated Multitone Rug, featuring a rainbow’s worth of hues, by Berlin-based textiles company Maharam.
In Maharam design director Hella Jongerius‘ hands, colors are combined in expert and unexpected ways; her textiles are in the permanent collections of the Art Institute Chicago, Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum, and MoMA. “There are three components that have to make music together: interesting yarns, great construction and the right technique to give the pattern dazzling oxygen,” the self-described “color-cooking chef” told DWR, which sells Maharam rugs and pillows, too. It’s a recipe for truly riveting color stories.
Have a look.
