Fleur’s celestes – Fascinating Florals
The use of flowers in design has always been fascinating. It is quite remarkable that they have been used for thousands of years and still remain fashionable. Flowers are not only breathtakingly beautiful; they are the ultimate inspiration for in-spring art and floral design. They have always attracted the human eye and so easily found their way to adorn many products, including carpets. As the carpet weaving industry developed over time, the usage of floral designs and patterns kept evolving too.
Floral patterns were extensively used in interiors during the French Baroque and Rococo period, between the early 17th to the mid-18th century. This was when architecture, painting, and sculpture were integrated into decorative ensembles. Fleurs ce’lestes is a collection inspired mainly by floral French tapestries of that time. The patterns are created by using flowers, buds, and leaves that are esthetically placed on meandering stems that flow all over the carpet. In this genre of carpets, the floral designs are mostly symmetrical with patterns that tend to repeat themselves. Sometimes the designs also incorporate topiary that mimics the look of a flower bed.
The colours we use in these designs are generally soft mid-tones and subdued pastels. Once the pattern is finalized our design team spends a lot of time to put together the right colour palette. This we do in the hope that our carpets arouse emotions that are close to what one experiences on seeing a garden of beautiful flowers.
Our range of carpets in this category are generally hand-made in qualities that are atleast a 100 knots/ sq inch or more. We manufacture these rugs using fine wool and silk which in turn enhances its appearance by giving it a rich, soft and classy look.
Our collection offers the opportunity to virtually create a garden with Fleurs ce’lestes (heavenly flowers) within the enclosed space of your home. A soul-stirring experience awaits you like the famous American botanist Luther Burbank said: “Don’t wait for someone to bring you flowers. Plant your own garden and decorate your own soul.”
