Designed by artist Selena Beaudry and made by Christopher Farr, the PILES™ Custom Rug is inspired by Selena Beaudry's PILES™ artwork series. Crafted with hand knotted Afghan silk and wool, this rug is expertly made to visually resemble a collage by Beaudry, using layers of varying pile to create depth and definition. The soft blue, green, and lavender color palette reflects Beaudry's skillful use of color in her artwork. This rug will surely add an elevated and artistic touch to any space in your home.
Initially an abstract painter, the Slade School graduate won a Boise Traveling Fellowship to Peru in 1975. There, Farr was enraptured by pre-Columbian textiles and, determined to explore ways to marry his love of abstraction to ancient textile arts, he travelled to Western Turkey to learn rug making. His modernist interest in colour and form, married to the age-old techniques of hand dying and hand looming, helped make Christopher Farr one of the preeminent rug designers of today.
