Our cobblestone carpet mimics the great wall of China

Great Wall of China Moodboard Talk Carpet

One of the world’s seven wonders, the Great Wall of China is a must-see spot for any tourist. Its first sections were built around 220 B.C., under Qin Shi Huang. Its primary purpose was to form a united defense system against invasions from the north. The Great Wall became the world’s largest military structure during the Ming dynasty. The tourist attraction was the site of many battles between the Chinese and various peoples throughout history.

The total length of the Great Wall adds up to more than 21,000 km, including overlapping sections that were rebuilt. During the Ming dynasty, the wall constructed was the most well-preserved section and is about 8,850 km long. Throughout the long walkway, there are passes, which were significant strongholds located at critical positions. Each key had access ramps and ladders and served as access points for merchants and civilians and an exit for the garrison to counterattack raiders.

The mixture between the sandy gray cobblestones and the green mountains creates a unique juxtaposition between manmade and nature. The perfect carpet to pay homage to the Great Wall is Cobble Fan Grey by ege carpets. This cobblestone carpet is part of the nature collection, which takes inspiration from all the natural beauty found in the world.

With the cobblestone carpet and the palette of the Great Wall view, we decided to play with sandy and neutral tones. For example, we chose to include gray tones, such as Firenze Design Stones Dot by Ceramic Technics, Peppercorn by Sherwin Williams, and Cembrit Patina by American Fiber Cement Corporation. Additionally, we included sandy tones like River Reflections: 1552 by Benjamin Moore and played with different textures by bringing in 8530 Velour by Belden Brick Company, Fleuri Natural Stone Veneer by Phenix Marble Company, and Cement Natural by Diverse Surface Solutions.

With our Recolor program, you can choose the color of our many carpet designs. Additionally, you can choose any of our nine substrates to take your project to the next level. Our online tool lets you quickly visualize what the color will look like. Contact us to learn more about the program and choose the perfect carpet for your next project.

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.
