Moss carpet on a materials palette inspired by upcycled art

Moss Carpet x Villa Datris Moodboard Talk Carpet

Looking back at our travels to the South of France, we decided to create a new mood board. We drew inspiration from an incredible piece of upcycled artwork at Villa Datris, a small foundation based in Provence. The center showcases extraordinary creations, all made from repurposing old waste materials. However, this unique green piece stood out to us in particular. We love the use of vibrant greens, ranging from deep forest to lime green tones. Amazingly, this entire piece is made from old bottle caps and electronic parts. These are arranged to resemble a tribal headdress. Overall, the piece draws reference and critique to the tons of waste shipped off to African wastelands.

With such creativity and meaning behind it, we chose this artwork as inspiration for our mood board. As the backdrop, we used the Wild Meadow Recoloured carpet by Ege. This moss carpet draws on the same greens used in the center of the artwork, and the darker tones scattered around the edges. Keeping on-trend, we used other materials from the same color palette. Natural by SICIS, Mous Hellgrian by Organoid, Bespoke by James Dunlop Textiles, for example, are all in different green hues. This reflects the plethora of green tones found in the original artwork.

To mimic the use of circular elements, we layered different materials with circular patterns over the moss carpet. We love the use of Treasures Moon by Porcelanosa in particular. It has the same metallic feel as the repurposed electrical elements and a complimentary circular shape. The unique Zigrino by Barbarossa Leather is another great material with circular prints and metallic accents. Other materials selected include Calais by LBI Boyd Design Resource, Drift by Burch, and Silver by Greyne Hardwood Flooring. We finished the mood board off with Brushed Silk II by Maya Romanoff and Napoleon Gray® Tile by Phenix Marble Company.

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.
