A carpet full of flavours!
I have come across a very talented designer! Her name is Nuttamon Prayoonhong. We met at the BIG Fair in Bangkok while I was visiting and wandering around in awe of all beautiful designs there were. While wandering around admiring all the beautiful design (of all sorts of products) I passed by a space with textile and carpets. But there was actually only one carpet that caught my attention. I just couldn’t get enough of the design, the colors, the texture. I was actually stroking it at a point. Lovely lovely work.
And suddenly a pleasant woman approaches me and say; -My daughter did this. This is my daughter. And thus I was introduced to Nuttamon Prayoonhong. I am happy to have met you Nuttamon! (if you read this). I am proud to show your carpet here at designmekka.com
The inspiration for this carpet Nuttamon describes as follows
This carpet is inspired by macaroons confectionery with the outstanding attributes in terms of color variety, taste and texture. The taste of this confectionery is communicated in terms of cloth texture, representing softness of cream and crispiness through various size of cotton and sisal. Moreover, the weave structure reflects fun of colorful confectioneries and their dimensions in the packaging in which diamond pattern is used to represent cream texture and zigzag pattern to represent external surface. The carpet is designed to decorate rooms in an urban eclectic style for urban, working-generation women who are confident, understand their own needs, highly individual, live complete lives, prefer new things, prefer written travel experiences are environment-conscious and love colorful lives.
This is how it all started. Well, not a l l but how the carpet is in the making. The beginning. The birth on the loom.
Even in the bare beginning you sense the colorfulness and the texture. And it grows. Into this
You see the resemblance to the macaroons don’t you?
Beautiful to look at, divine to let melt on your tongue! Not the carpet. The macaroons, silly!
The work with the carpet continued and here there are only some lose ends to tie.
Look at the texture. It is really fantastic to its feel.
And voilà here it is in all its glory.
I really love this carpet, the design, the texture and, actually, even the inspiration to the design.
