Gold carpet that radiates through its natural gradient flow

Radiant Gold Moodboard Talk Carpet

The Chimu empire was one of the largest at its time, expanding its territory to a significant part of the north coast of Peru. Additionally, the Chimu were known as the most significant metal workers of ancient Peru. We visited Museo Larco, which was established in 1926 by Raphael Larco Hoyle. The museum houses over 45,000 objects from the pre-Columbian art period. One of the museum’s exhibits focuses on how the ancient people of Peru understood death and dealt with it. 

In the permanent exhibition of the Museo Larco, we can learn more about death in ancient Peru. Additionally, to these people, death and birth were simply periods of transition. Death symbolized the beginning of a new life, so the leaders were often buried with their riches. Additionally, when a leader dies, they believe that they would eventually reunite with the gods. Different kinds of traditions were put into place to guide the leader to this divine path. In the exhibit, you can find the only complete set of gold Chimu Clothing. This set features plumes associated with birds, the only creature that can travel the skies and be close to the gods. There were also images of the deceased leader and their greatest accomplishment, embellishing the gold set. 

Inspired by this beautiful and unique funerary offering, we decided to recolor Reform Radiant by ege carpets. This collection shows the different depictions of the sun’s reflection on a variety of surfaces. Reform Radiant features 20 standard colors that reflect urban and natural environments. With the beautiful funerary offering in mind, we created a gold and black carpet recolor.

To continue with the royal and elegant theme, the material board features gold-toned textiles like Grene by Liaigre. We also included a golden wood, like Polygon, with patterns that resemble the detailing in the neckpiece. Additionally, we included neutral patterned textiles like Beatriz and Xorel Coil to add just the right amount of texture. We also included Tuft by Maharam, which adds more to the royal and classy feel, and a simple tile like Bakersfield ties everything together. Lastly, for the finishing touch, we included dark wood like Fir Carbon 1.

Our recolor program allows you to create the perfect gold carpet with any of our many designs. Additionally, Talk Carpet offers nine different substrates you can choose from, and you can get a sample within five business days. Lastly, with our online tool, you can easily visualize what the recolored carpet will look like. Contact us if you want to learn more about the recolor program

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.
