These Industrial materials resemble the facade of Centre Pompidou

Pompidou Moodboard Talk Carpet

Inaugurated in 1977, the Pompidou Center is a Parisian landmark. The building is located in the 4th arrondissement of Paris and was named after the president who envisioned it. Georges Pompidou was president of France from 1962 until 1968. President Pompidou wanted a space dedicated to the culture of the 20th and 21st centuries. This space would bring together visual arts, literature, music, cinema, and design in one multicultural institution.

The Pompidou became what the French president always wanted and more. The building has extensive galleries featuring visiting exhibitions and selections from its permanent collection of artworks. Additionally, it also features a cinema, a public library, and much more. However, the building was only inaugurated by Pompidou’s successor, Valery Giscard d’Estaing.

A unique aspect of the architecture of Pompidou is the exterior. Rather than hiding pipes and structural utilities, everything is exposed and brightly colored. Giving the facade of a bunch of industrial materials glued together. This was a completely new type of architecture, thought up by Richard Rogers and Renzo Piano.

Inspired by the architecture of Pompidou, we recolored the Echo carpet. This carpet is part of the Graphic collection, which takes inspiration from geometry, hoops, stripes, 3-dimensional grids, and typography. This unique carpet recolor uses the lines created by the industrial materials of the construction of the Pompidou as its main inspiration.

With the carpet and the Pompidou center in mind, we created a colorful material board. For this mood board, we included metallic materials like Deco Arrows by Decorative Ceiling Tiles. Additionally, we included gray tones, such as Midnight Dream and Broken Slate. To bring in pops of color, similar to the piping of the Parisian building, we included Echopanel 24mm Felt by Kirei, Boho by Paul Brayton Designs, and Manhattan by Camira.

With our Recolor program, you can choose the color of any 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 allows you to easily 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.
