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

Pakistani-American artist Anila Quayyum Agha creates fiber art installations using geometric shapes and ornaments. Her pieces are large-scale architectural sculptures with tiny details that blend Islamic culture into her work. She uses her childhood experiences and cultural significance throughout her life as her inspiration. We’re creating a materials palette paying homage to her vision, featuring a modern Persian carpet design.

One of her most famous artworks is her Intersections installation that she creates for the Grand Rapids Museum. Inspired by a trip to the Alhambra in Granada, Spain, she builds an interior installation that uses Islamic art designs. The installation has a bright light that shines through the piece. The light suspending from the ceiling shines through a laser-cut box that is made out of wood. The wooden box has outlines in black and is very clean-cut and crisp. The cube uses a symmetrical pattern that resembles the Alhambra. The laser box acts as a projector screen that reflects the box’s detailed design on a larger scale in the room.

The geometric shapes and lines all have unique decorative elements and cover the gallery walls, floor, and ceiling. The projector screen makes a dense silhouette effect on the visitors, and their bodies change the patterns as they move.

Similarly, we use one of our corridor designs as the backdrop of the mood board. Village Prints which we recolored, has many line details and patterns just like Aghas’ work. We pair our recolored carpet with materials such as Quadri by LBI Boyd Design Resource, with Bellingham Grey by Durasein. We also use Fabricadazzle by Maya Romanoff, with elegant Vetrite by Sicis, and Refractions by Weitzner. The Metamorphosis by Wolf-Gordon, Le Muse by Koroseal Interior Products goes well on our board with Optik by Verner Panton. Lastly, we use Scirocco by Arto and Breton by CF Stinson.

With our easy recolor program, you can recolor any of our existing carpet patterns to your own preferences. With our near-endless color and visualization options, you can easily see what will work for your next interior project. We have various patterns available in broadloom, carpet tiles, or as commercial area rugs. There are thousands of carpet patterns to choose from, including abstract, modern, and organic carpet designs. Please contact one of our team members through the chat button or our contact page.
