Maison Christian Lacroix + Moooi Carpets = a magical carpet called Jewels Garden
“Maison Christian Lacroix is honoured to announce its collaboration with the prestigious house of Moooi,” says Nicolas Topiol, CEO of Christian Lacroix. “Sacha Walckhoff, our brand’s creative director, has fashioned a unique carpet for Moooi. It was unveiled for the first time at the Salone del Mobile 2015 in Milan.”
The carpet in question – Jewels Garden – is no ordinary carpet.
In the words of Walckhoff, “A rug recalling an imaginary garden, where, flirting with jewels, colourful flowers seem to blossom against the backdrop of shimmering madras designs. A contemporary fantasy, this rug is like an illustrated fairytale popping out of The Arabian Nights. It is an invitation to come lie down and let our modern-day imagination wander just as Scheherazade once did…“
Says Marcel Wanders, Moooi co-founder and art director, “It’s wonderful to work with our friends from Maison Christian Lacroix. The sophistication of their design is a marvellous addition to the Moooi Carpets signature range.”

Moooi is proud to announce the birth of Moooi Carpets, a brand new company that has been launched for the first time during Moooi’s collection presentation at Il Salone del Mobile in Milan. Moooi Carpets reinterprets the carpet as we know it and opens up new horizons in the universe of design by introducing a technology that enables amazingly realistic patterns to be printed digitally, and in a very high definition. All the carpets offer endless possibilities of colours thanks to the use of the revolutionary Chromojet high definition printer, which creates images with a remarkable trompe-l’oeil effect.
