Teppich Galore

Hannover may not be the most vibrant, trendy or exciting German city, but Domotex nevertheless managed to shine. The world’s biggest flooring show had an expertly curated flooring trends and materials innovation area, but all that was in many ways hijacked by the glitz and glamour of alluring carpet displays at the Carpet Design Awards exhibition.


Galmous Atlas MountainSoufiane Zarib Soufiane Zarib, Domotex

This Moroccan-based rug artist is probably best known for the stunning Beni Ouirain rugs of the 17 Berber tribes of the Atlas Mountain, so not surprisingly this handmade esoteric design takes its cues from the mountains and pathways of similar regions in northwestern Africa. @soufiane.zarib 

SunRug Star Rug Star, Sun, Domotex

Designed by Jürgen Dahlmanns, this eye-popping Persian weave carpet is hand knotted in Jaipur, also known as the Pink City, in the northern Indian state of Rajasthan, and is available in 100 per cent silk or a wool-silk blend. www.rugstar.com 

ChaosLila Valadan Chaos, Lila Valadan, Domotex

Made from hand spun highland wool and plant-based colouring, this Persian carpet is part of the Hidden collection, which combines a thousand-year-old history of nomadic carpet tradition with abstract shapes to form an intriguing design. www.lilavaladan.com 

Anar dar ToorZollanvari Zollanvari, Domotex

Designed by NOV24 as part of the Isfahan Collection, inspiration for Anar dar Toor (meaning, roughly, “pomegranates in a net”) came from seeing a fruit seller in a market near Shiraz, in Irans Fars province, who had hung pomegranates in a net (toor) to keep them clean. www.zollanvari.com 

Gatsby GoldHossein Rezvami Hossein Rezvami, Gatsby Gold, Domotex

The luxurious geometric Art Deco arrangement of this Fitzgerald-influenced carpet, made from a mixture of black highland wool and golden silk, was one of the undeniable showstoppers at Domotex. www.hosseinrezvani.com  

Skagen Swiss Krono Group Skagen, Swiss Krono Group, Domotex

In one of those collections-within-collections scenarios, Skagen is the nicest series on the Mega Plus collection, itself part of the Kronotex line of modern laminate floor surfaces, and cleverly replicates the worn wooden parquet floor look. www.kronotex.com  

PoudreAtelier Février Atelier Février, Poudre, Domotex

Hand-knotted in Nepal with Himalayan wool and silk, this enthralling shadow-like paint spill design created in collaboration with Parisian performing artists Bruant & Spangaro was a crowd favourite and Carpet Design Award winner at Domotex. www.atelierfevrier.com  

Trigu│Mariantonia Urru Trigu, Mariantonia Urru, Domotex 

Designed by Paulina Herrera Letelier, the Mediterranean Moving Landscapes Collections (and especially the Trigu rug) epitomize simplicity, richness of colour, and warmth. The contemporary design, produced from natural wool and colour, uses yarn elevation to enhance the pattern. www.mariantoniaurru.com  

 Olbia Stella│Tisca Olbia Stella, Tisca, Domotex

Hand-woven using New Zealand wool and available in 96 colours and variety of shapes and sizes, the Olbia collection’s key selling feature is its reversibility, giving this playful rug added longevity. www.tisca.at
