Recognised for offering exclusive, sophisticated and unique services to discerned and established clients as a designer, Audi called on LUND to assist with rugs that would meet her client’s brief of Gorgeously Grand!
What would you say a rug brings to a space?
“A key feature of a rug is to help define a space within a room. Rugs provide a unique way to reflect your personality within a room and bring the style and design of a room together. Good quality handmade rugs will last for generations, age gracefully, appreciate over time, become heirlooms, and be a magnificent combination of function, beauty and value. They are true works of art.”
Which of the LUND Rugs did you use and where? How did each rug relate to its context and the scheme overall?
“The home is spacious and bright with large open-plan rooms that called for large oversized rugs to fill the expanse of the rooms. With a particular emphasis on clean lines of symmetry, this was the driving force behind the design process and the 5 LUND rugs selected for each space.
For the Entrance Hall, we selected a round rug in a custom ombre design in shades of blue, a favourite opulent colour of the clients that complement the round entrance table and sweeping staircases on either side.
The Concurrent featured in the lounge and the Elevation in the dining room, add vibrancy and movement to the rooms through their striking abstract and contemporary design that meets an opulent yet classic lifestyle.
In the pyjama lounge, we relaxed into calming shades of blue and neutral tones that effortlessly melt into one another to create a soft and luxurious space for ultimate relaxation. This trend was mimicked in the master bedroom in the slightly more dramatic Verge where both spaces face north-east to maximise on the natural light and stunning sunset views.”
Why do you recommend LUND to your clients?
“As a prominent player in the interior field, I look to brands such as LUND Rugs that offer a versatile range of exceptional quality Hand-knotted and Hand-tufted rugs that meet the interior style of various spaces. Also, rugs can be custom designed, produced in any size and in almost any colour which speaks to our core values of providing exemplary personal attention to our clients and detail that shows off.”
Which LUND Rugs do you currently have your eye on?
“The Hand-knotted Chroma in Dark Ivory/fuchsia. This rug has a more traditional design modernised with a contemporary splash of colour.”
