Droog All-in-one carpets

Dutch design studio, Droog, recently presented their stunning now concept, All-in-one carpets. This 14-piece modular carpet is suited to fit every room and taste, as it's made from one design with which you can create an entire range of different sizes and patterns. This is the first product of the new All-in-one range by Studio Droog, an Amsterdam based studio that develops the Droog brand through a range of furniture, accessories and lighting products. Due to be released at the Maison & Objet show in Paris next month, this product also stays true to its Dutch roots. Jonathan Ursem, owner of local stockist, Label Orange, explains the origins of the design saying, 'If you look at the colours – mainly blue and white – you can see that Droog is referring to one of the defining products in early Dutch design: Delft blue porcelain.' When asked how he thinks the product will influence interiors here in South Africa, he explains, 'Vintage porcelain, whether it is a vase from China or a plate from The Netherlands, is becoming huge in South Africa right now, so I expect the carpet to do really well.' We love Droog’s latest creation because you can select your favourite or piece some of your favourites together to make a larger arrangement that matches your own personal style. Jonathan describes it as a 'puzzle', adding that 'You can either make a 300 x 80cm hallway carpet out of the single mini carpets, or make a massive 213 x 300cm carpet in your living room. It’s up to you!' We certainly agree that it's an innovative take on carpets. Visit labelorange.com to find out more or email info@labelorange.com. Prices are available on request.
