Our Bronze Flatweave Rug lays in the middle of this teahouse design palette

Fuzhou City Teahouse Moodboard Talk Carpet

The Fuzhou City Teahouse has one of the best teahouse designs in China. The Chinese architecture studio Neri & Hu Design and Research Office projected the building. The original building was a wooden structure of a high-ranking Qing dynasty official’s residence featuring ornamental carvings. This teahouse design project posed the challenge of encapsulating this historic structure with a modern and unique outer layer.

The teahouse is elevated above a rammed concrete base. The copper roof reflects the enclosed historic wooden structure. The architecture studio mainly used concrete for this project. The material pays homage to the traditional earthen dwellings of the region. Inside, there is a beautiful juxtaposition between the different elements of this complex interior. The natural materials palette uses concrete and wood, contrasting traditional and modern.

Inspired by the beautiful teahouse design, we created a mood board inspired by the natural materials palette of the project. For this mood board, we decided to use dark brown tones, such as Una Micro Stripe Tile by ege carpets, Bronze Flatweave Rug by Talk Carpet, and Van Dyke Brown by Sherwin Williams. Additionally, we included Autumn Bronze by Benjamin Moore to add a lighter tone of brown. We also had bronze-toned materials like Patina 110L and Patina 107 by Moz Designs. To tie everything together, we had Classic Wood by Specified Solutions and the contrasting Cembrit Patina Inline by American Fiber Cement.

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.
