Christophe is one of our founders and creative director. His passions are interiors, cooking, and traveling the globe for new inspiration.

Morgan Otagburuagu is a Nigerian photographer who focuses on fashion, beauty, and portrait photography. She is from Abia State, and she photographs beautiful African women with a strong emphasis on highlighting their deep skin tones. Her new series, Black is Gold, honors black women who are not given credit in Western society. In order to portray their independence, Otagburuagu creates powerful and virtuous images that emphasize their beauty. We are creating a modern minimalist carpet palette inspired by her vision.

Her portraits of African women, she covers the models in flower petals and beautiful floral headbands. She uses dark-skinned models in the photographs, to showcase the beauty and power in their complexion. In the photos, her models pose nude so that their skin is the main subject of the artwork.

Similarly, we use a modern minimalist carpet pattern called Spotlight that we recolor. The carpet uses gradient textures that blend both colors naturally. We translate the powerful image of dark-skinned women into the carpet. For the rest of the mood board, we use carved by TURF, Clearest Ocean Blue by Benjamin Moore, Diamante by Hygge & West, Pearly White Oak by Anthology Woods, Encaustic Cement Tile by Sabine Hill, Fuse by Kvadrat/Raf Simons, Una Casa by ege Carpets, Rumor by Outdura, and Black Sea by coverings ETC.
