Soft material Palette inspired by La Galerie Dior in Paris

Dior Gallery Moodboard Talk Carpet

One of Paris’s newest must-see visits is the newly opened Dior gallery. The building features a majestic boutique, a restaurant run by Jean Imbert, a luxury suite, a Garden of Eden, and a gallery. You can experience a scenographic narrative of Parisian Haute Couture history in the gallery. Nathalie Criniere designed the gallery tour. It spans thirteen rooms as you see the history behind creating the well-established fashion house.

Christian Dior was born in Granville, Normandy, in a family that lived comfortably due to its fertilizer and chemicals manufacturing business. In the 1920s, Dior started to frequent the cultural milieu in Paris, befriending many artists of the time. In 1928, he opened an art gallery with Jacques Bonjean in Paris. He opened another gallery in partnership with Pierre Colle, only four years later. In 1941, Dior got a job as a designer at the house of Lucien Lelong. Only five years later, Dior and Marcel Boussac joined forces to create the Christian Dior couture house. In 1948, Dior opened on Fifth Avenue in New York City, only two years later. The fashion brand only continued to grow from that point to becoming the renowned name today.

Inspired by the florals and the soft color palette, we used our Abstract floral rug as the backdrop for this soft material palette. This rug features light blues and pinks, along with creams. Additionally, the delicate and abstract floral design is a beautiful way to pay homage to Christian Dior.

We wanted to create a soft material palette with the floral carpet in mind. Therefore, we decided to include light-colored materials, such as Storm by Concept Surfaces, Caliza Series, 33345 by Kravet Contract, Oat Milk by Sherwin-Williams, and Chiffon by Koroseal Interior Products. We included Reform Artworks Angle by ege by Talk Carpet to bring a dark yet neutral contrast to the board. Lastly, we included EuroTwill Reversible Broken Weave by Mecho for a pop of color and more contrast overall.

Our new rug shop is an excellent option if you want to add something special to any space. We offer the best commercial-grade area rugs made from recycled nylon to wool-nylon mix. Our broadloom patterns can be made into area rugs, so the sky is the limit design-wise. We have a standard lead time of ten weeks, including shipping. Contact us if you want to learn more.

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.
