Campell-Rey x Nordic Knots
A Gustavian-inspired rug collection
A collection designed by the London-based design duo Campell-Rey for Nordic Knots.
It mixes influences from the colorful Art-Deco style and the floral motifs of the Gustavian style - the neoclassicism of the North.
An interest in the intersection of the natural world and garden motifs is at the heart of the collaboration. Campbell-Rey’s rugs take their impetus from the endlessly fascinating palette in Werner’s Nomenclature with colours including a deep amber, a wisteria lilac, a chartreuse, a raspberry pink and four nuances of green.
All rugs are crafted by hand in limited editions.
Garden Maze has lush tones of green reminiscent of hedgerows
characterize the Garden Maze rug, an homage to the formal gardens of Russell Page. The deepening shades of green create a play on perspective and recall the geometric shadows of a hedge maze.
Climbing Vine is a similarly contemporary update to a classic motif, a line of scrolling chartreuse foliage, sharp and graphic in its outline, that winds around the edge of a calm lilac or amber rug.
Climbing Vine is designed by the London-based design duo Campbell-Rey for ISSIMO at Hotel Il Pellicano. A limited collection created to capture the spirit of the Italian dolce vita that's synonymous with this iconic hotel.
Folding Ribbon is a modern interpretation of the ribbons and swags that appear in late 18th-century furniture of the Gustavian style. In raspberry pink and amber, this 3D trompe l’oeil pattern looks strikingly modern despite its roots in a 250-year-old aesthetic.
