Everyday exuberance in luxury fashion inspires this soft material palette

Moodboard _ Talkcarpet

In February we are bringing a fashion focus at Talk Carpet. The entire month will be inspired by looks from the SS2021 (virtual) shows. Bold fashion has returned to the mainstream with honest clothes that have practical magic about them. Designers such as Dries Van Noten and Emilio Pucci are both masters of color and print. They have long been advocates for eccentric everyday clothing. Younger designers such as Molly Goddard, Christopher John Rogers, and Matty Bovan are now getting on board.

We are recreating the everyday exuberance of Emilio Pucci on our fashion materials palette. Combining gold and silver tones in our carpet design and using it as the background, we were able to make the palette stand out. Pairing the carpet with multiple contract products to bring it to life.

First off, we included Barnwood by Durasein for a simple organic look. Second, we add Kabuto by Wolf-Gordon to add texture. Third, we incorporate Sonnet by Wolf-Gordon that reflects the mint-colored blouse on the model. Finally, we use Paradise Marble by Marble Systems and Brushed Bronzetoned Aluminum by Formica to bring back golden warm tones into the mood board.

With our brand new Transition Mix Tiles, you are able to create a smooth flow of color. Gradient carpet tiles transition by blending a color combination of your choice. A dark to a light color combination would best create a smooth transition of colors. These tiles will definitely vamp up your interiors project. Reform Transition is available in carpet tile, planks, special tile shapes, area rugs, and wall-to-wall carpets. Mix tiles are available in only 48×48 cm.

If you love the carpet and would like to receive samples or an architect folder, please contact one of our team members through chat or email. Reform Transition is part of the Reform concept, focusing on multi level-loop carpets made from Econyl® recycled carpet yarns. All Reform carpet tiles are produced with the patented Ecotrust backing, a felt material made recycled water bottles.

Sitting right next to Pompidou in Paris is Atelier Brancusi. This place is a reconstruction of the studio of renowned Romanian-born artist Constantin Brancusi. In the atelier, there are 137 sculptures, 87 bases, 41 drawings, two paintings, and more than 1600 grass photographic plates and prints by the artist.

Brancusi died in 1957, leaving behind a lot of his work in his studio, which consisted of 11 joined studios. The Romanian artist would break down walls to adjoin studios and create various environments to exhibit his work. He considered the relationship between sculptures and the space they occupied to be of crucial importance.

In 1997, the Atelier Brancusi as we know it today opened its doors on the esplanade of the Center Pompidou. So much of Brancusi’s work is on display at the atelier, giving you an idea of how much the artist put into the world. There are wood and plaster sculptures, bronze colonnades, animal shapes, and photographic studies. It is a beautiful and inspiring place to visit.

Inspired by the stone and natural textures of Brancusi’s work, we recolored the Stone Surface carpet. This is part of the nature collection by ege carpets, which takes inspiration from forests, deserts, and oceans. This light recolor of the carpet allows you to bring a textured palette to your next interior design project.

We created a material board that focuses on a textured palette with the atelier colors and the recolored carpet in mind. We included dark woods like Texas Mesquite 83000 and Artisanal Hardwoods. Keeping the dark brown theme, we also included different textured textiles like Artisan Textured Finishes by CopperSmith, Basketcase by Cortina Leathers, Lafayette Velvet by Opuzen, and Chesney by Valley Forge Fabrics. Additionally, we decided to bring some lighter tones of cream and white by adding Cove, True Terrazzo, Concrete Look Porcelain Paver, and Passion. To tie in the soft colors with the dark ones, we included mid-toned neutral paints like Crewel Tan by Sherwin-Williams and Mesa Tan by Dunn-Edwards Paints.

If you like our textured palette, you might be interested in our Easy Recolor Program. We used this to recolor our Stone Surface carpet, enabling us to source the perfect backdrop for our textured palette. Using our online tool, you can do the same. Choose from any of our collections and recolor them to match any interior. You can then visualize the carpet before ordering physical carpet samples. You’ll receive your samples within three business days at an affordable price. Contact us if you want to learn more.
