Designed in London and handwoven in India the Eleanor Pritchard Rugs range features the Eleanor Pritchard trademark graphic patterns inspired by London’s architectural lines and draws its name from a structure found on construction sites across the city.
“I have always loved playing with colour and pattern. My work often has a mid-century quality and I feel a strong affinity for the aesthetics and design philosophy of this era. Alongside this runs a deep interest in vernacular British textiles and I see much of my work as a re-interpretation of these traditions and techniques for a contemporary audience.”Known most for her fabric and upholstery designers, this is the first time that Eleanor Pritchard has designed a rug collection. With a colour palette based on warm and dark greys, sea greens and petrol blues, Purlin beautifully reflects the urban landscape in a clean and contemporary way. Purlin is a horizontal beam along the length of a roof, resting on principals and supporting the common rafters or boards.
