COVER: Modern Carpets & Textiles for Interiors is a quarterly magazine focused on the best fine rugs and textiles being designed and made today. COVER also looks at market trends and innovations and examines the role of rugs and textiles in interior design.
The latest collections and new products come into the spotlight as COVER 52 looks ahead to an array of upcoming international fairs and events, including The Rug Show New York, London Design Festival, Istanbul Carpet Week, High Point Market and Maison et Objet Paris. We examine what is happening on the rug market in our Retailer focus, a series of seven interviews with international rug retailers: what is the public buying and what is driving those decisions? Furthermore, our US rug report takes an in-depth look at the trends moving the market in America.
Art rugs are still the talk of the town with new collections from Knots Rugs, Noreen Seabrook, IKEA and By Kamy, plus we talk to London brand Christopher Farr about launching the artist carpet trend. Our report on the best rugs from Design Miami/ and a look at Christo’s latest project in London, The London Mastaba, are both a visual treat while we find out more about brands Halcyon Lake in Richmond, Australia and Rug & Kilim, based in New York.
COVER’s trend section includes a look at designs featuring rich foliage and also introduces a selection of new graduates, who approach textile design with unconventional perspectives. We interview interior designers Kathleen Jordan, principal at Gensler, and London and Miami-based Natalia Miyar and report on the latest handloom rug collections, while the News and Calendar pages are there to keep you up-to-date with international events.
