Lapchi will show three new collections, as well as the latest of its artist series designed by Milton Glaser, at the New York International Carpet Show.
The LAPCHI COLLECTION comprises a dynamic layering of design inspiration and influence. Diverse and subtly elegant, the palette of richly taut geometric patterns vie with evocations of European silks, and exotic far eastern influences. Woven from high knot count Tibetan wools and fine silks, these designs exhibit fields of painterly washed layers of color and a new close cropped velvet pile surface that invites the eye to linger and the hand to caress.
The KILIM COLLECTION is a potent cocktail made of clean geometries, energetic mid-century modernism, and timeless tribal echos. Hand woven in Pakistan, the collection is tightly woven in fine lustrous wool and dyed to display undulating tonal shifts in the smooth surface of the rug. This combination of crisp patterns woven in chromatic watercolor washes, elevate the classic Kilim to new planes of sophistication.
The TEXERE COLLECTION takes complex, nuanced surfaces to a new dimension. Each carpet is a voyage of changing color and depth inspired and influenced by the unplanned rhythms of the natural world. Knotted in Pakistan the collection combines both pile and flat soumak weaving structures for dynamic surface dialogue, and showcases the glowing and multi-colored tonal variations in each and every strand of wool.
The MILTON GLASER FOR LAPCHI COLLECTION is an extraordinary numbered, limited edition line of carpets designed by Milton Glaser, one of the most recognized and influential designers in the world. His prolific and decorated body of work includes the illustration and design of more than 300 posters, as well as graphic and architectural commissions from around the world. Among his more famous works are the design of New York Magazine and the iconic I Heart NY campaign.
