Material palette inspired by the Prada SS2021 collection

Moodboard _ Talkcarpet

At one of the season’s most anticipated debuts, Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons spoke about creating a new uniform. Their sweatsuits, a marriage of Prada’s full-skirt silhouettes and Simons’s graphic tendencies, feel like the right style for our current present. Our material palette translates the spirit and feels behind the collection.

When Raf Simons joined Prada as co-creative director, the luxury brand went through a change for the 2021 Spring/Summer collection. The new collection includes trendy dresses and suits in vibrant Spring colors. Mixing comfort and fashion, the sweatsuits have floral patterns and geometric shapes in nylon. The Raf Simons premiere incorporates a modern change to Prada and maintains a classically elegant look.

Just as the Prada collection shows the transitional phase through modern and bold designs. The abstract shapes inspire us to recolor our own Fusion Square Large design by ege carpets. We beautifully expressed our carpet design to translate the layers of rounded rectangles in this orange sweatsuit dress. The rectangular patterns change from black to a rich orange against an off-white background. We also incorporate Raf Simons’ geometric upholstery design into our mood board, called Sonar 3 by Kvadrat and Simons.

We are using the Fusion Square Large recolored by ege carpets as our background for our chic material palette. Alongside contract materials such as Grezzo by Highstone Stone and Tile, Cords by Kravet, Regine by Valley Forge Fabrics, Axis Tool By CF Stinson, Sonar by Kvadrat/Raf Simons, Pearlessence by Garret Leather, Diablo by DUCHATEAU, Fresh Mesh by Wolf-Gordon, and Tuscan Gold by Rookwood.

If you like this carpet design and have any questions about our recolor options, feel free to reach out to one of our team members. Through ege’s recolor program, any of these designs can be recolored to suit your project needs. We offer a selection of nine carpet substrates and can provide personalized carpet samples within five business days.

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.
