The Italian rug brand Golran had a couple of surprises in store for this edition of Maison et Objet. They presented new additions to their collection, the highlight being the rug collection Garden of Eden from Golran.
Garden of Eden is a collection designed by India Mahdavi under the artistic direction of the Francesca Avossa agency located in Paris. This collection was first revealed during April of 2018 at the Salone del Mobile in Milan.
The collection has many inspirations, most notably the Persian gardens as well as India Mahdavi’s eclectic background. These rugs, aside from being hand knotted, they are composed of wool.
The patterns of these rugs are defined by a pattern of smooth leaves. At the center of each rug, there’s a central decoration filled by zigzag edges to replace the fringes. It’s like looking at a wild garden when noticing this detail.
Not to mention the fact that they’re available in four ranges of colorways: March is green, June is honey yellow in anticipation of summer, September has warm orange tones, and December is black and white.
The best way to define this collection of rugs is to see them as a new interpretation of carpets inspired by Eastern gardens. This was obtained thanks to India Mahdavi’s risk of breaking out of the confines of shape and adding a sensation of movement to these rugs. It’s a truly unique concept especially when it comes to the visual aspect.
