Paris-based interior designer Sarah Lavoine brings a fearless graphic edge to her work and debuts a line of carpets. Sarah recently added to her rapidly expanding product range with the launch of a hand-knotted, woolen carpet collection developed in collaboration with the French rug manufacturer Chevalier Édition. Like in the interiors she decorates, also in this collection she combines her love of modern art with signature irreverent touches and unexpected hits of colour.
The Mogador collection, which borrows its name from the ancient Moroccan coastal town known today as Essaouira, features a graphic mix of three distinct patterns with a simple, hand-drawn effect. Bold and eclectic, the rugs are available in three sizes and five colorways.
Inspired by Berber ancient art, the Mogador carpet reinvents its codes: vibrant colors, irregular lines and comfort.
“The design of the collection is largely influenced by my childhood memories of Morocco,” says Sarah Lavoine. “I was inspired by the geometry of Berber kilims, the magical colors, and the grids of fishing nets. I wanted to create five diverse color combinations to accentuate the beauty of these authentic Moroccan rugs.”
All the rugs made by Chevalier Édition are hand-knotted in a workroom in Nepal in the respect of both tradition and Man and uphold to the highest standards of quality and production.
