Deirdre Dyson’s 2015 carpet collection is quite a departure from recent themes. Comprising nine fresh designs, which interplay linear and graphic forms, the result is both striking and modern. Entitled “Illusion”, the new collection will be shown for the first time at Maison et Objet Paris on 23-27 January 2015. Deirdre commented on the collection, “My 2015 “Illusion” collection presented my hand-knotted makers with the most difficult challenge to date.
The geometric designs may look deceptively simple, but the intricacy of workmanship involved is astounding. I have used colour grading in many directions and opposing paths. The makers, who work across the loom from left to right, row by row, have to change colour at almost every stitch. It requires them to think as if standing on their heads and reflects the complete labour of love that we dedicate to these exquisite carpets! The result is a dazzling contrast from light to dark, of shadows and optical illusions.” As always, Deirdre’s designs merely provide inspiration for clients. Each carpet is totally bespoke, so anything is possible. Deirdre Dyson is proud to subscribe to GoodWeave.
