Our Silver area rug is the background for this palette inspired by the Petrona Towers

Petrona Towers Moodboard Talk Carpet

The Petronas Towers are a landmark in Kuala Lumpur that cannot be missed. The two towers were considered the tallest in the world from 1998 to 2004. They were designed by Cesar Pelli and completed in 1998. The two towers put Kuala Lumpur on the architectural radar and evoke the richness of the country’s culture. It’s not just the height of the towers that makes them stand out. It is the unique concept that Pelli came up with by incorporating Islamic motifs and symbols into the design process.

The inside of the Petronas Towers is designed to pay homage to the country’s local handicrafts and weaving patterns with a unique combination of stainless steel and glass, finishing the building in an Islamic pattern. Each floor plat is based on Islamic geometric shapes of two interlocking squares, creating the shape of an eight-pointed star. These geometric shapes represent essential Islamic unity, harmony, stability, and rationality principles. A bridge connects the two beautifully designed towers and can move independently in case of strong winds.

Inspired by the modern and reflective Petronas Towers, we used a silver area rug as the show’s star. Dark Gray Seagrass Rug by Talk Carpet is a part of the A New Wave collection, which interprets the untouched Danish West coast in three design stories about the dramatic landscape. This silver area rug adds just the right amount of texture and beauty to any design project.

We decided to stay in the gray color family regarding the material board. Therefore, we included various gray tones like Wall Street by Benjamin Moore, Morning at Sea, and Cadet by Sherwin Williams. We also wanted to play with textures and patterns to bring some dimension to the board. This is where Casablanca Terrazzo Fun by Roca, Monclair by Vermont Quarries Corporation, Argos Black by Thorntree, and Argento Marble by Materials Marketing come in. Lastly, we included Polished Smoke by Decorative Ceiling Tiles to bring more of that metallic silver that inspired us from the beginning.

Talk Carpet’s new rug shop is a great option to add just the right finishing touch to your design project with an area rug. We offer the best commercial-grade area rugs made from recycled nylon. You will find one that fits your 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.
