Gradient carpet and forest neutrals inspired by SS21 Undercover look

Moodboard _ Talkcarpet

Jun Takahashi amazed us with his new Spring/Summer 2021 Women’s Collection featuring his collaboration with Sanrio at Paris Fashion Week. The lookbook titled The Sixth Sense shows six transitional parts, each with different themes according to the season. We are particularly drawn to the sixth The Royal Family of the Basement theme. This section features casual streetwear fashion styled with elegant jewelry and royal sashes. The ready-to-wear collection blends classic and modern, showing the transformation of Takahashi’s brand. It is the inspiration for our mood board featuring a green gradient carpet.

Just as the collection shows the transitional phase with his modern and bold designs, we use the leaf design from the new Reform Transition collection by ege carpets. The Leaf is a design by Manganese Editions that portrays foliage’s growth and decay throughout the various seasonal changes. The Leaf designs blend multi-tonal colors through gradient carpet tiles. From organic forest green to a golden brown, the colors show the transitional hues of a leaf from when they grow on a branch to when they fall on the ground. Like Takahashi’s designs featuring monochrome sweatsuits layered with bold statement jewelry, the Leaf design is in one color tone that can be blended with complementary colors. You can also mix two or three complementary colors to show a smooth gradient flow across your carpet flooring.

For our mood board, we set the gradient carpet Reform Transition Leaf by ege Carpets as our natural background. Paired with other matching products, including Alpi Verde Panel by Porcelanosa, Old Castle by Durasein, Cafe Blend by Walker Zanger, Island Weaves Japan Paperweave by Maya Romanoff, Sereno by Bernhardt Textiles, and Impress Braid by Garrett Leather.

Our Reform Transition Leaf Collection is available in tiles, planks, and broadloom carpets, with multiple color options. The collection is Cradle to Cradle Certified and is Green Label Plus certified. There is no minimum order requirement for wall-to-wall orders. If you like any of our designs below, please contact one of our agents. We will get you a sample within 2-4 days of delivery.

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.
