Colour you can really sink your feet into!
After nearly three years of collaboration, we couldn't think of a better time to highlight our ongoing partnership with ethical rugmakers FLOOR_STORY and our series of colour CHROMA and OPTICK RUGS. This post is a celebration of the range, it’s inspiration and the story behind them.
A shared vision
In 2019, a conversation and shared vision between Simon Goff, FLOORSTORY founder and Kitty Joseph sparked off the collaboration and the first, and perhaps most iconic design: The CHROMA RUG.
The CHROMA RUGS
A translation of an image of the KITTY JOSEPH CHROMA SKIRT laid flat on the floor, the CHROMA PRIMARY RUG took direct inspiration from the colours and the pleating of this bestselling skirt .
A celebration of colour mixing that has been the building block for multiple products released by KITTY JOSEPH, such as the CHROMA DRESS, CHROMA SKIRT, CHROMA TOPS and more, each CHROMA RUG is hand-carved to replicate the pleated pattern that can be seen on the clothing items, with each of the 38 colours in every rug having been hand selected by Kitty in the FLOOR STORY studio.
From this striking circular rug design, Kitty developed further colourways, exploring various moods and sequences of colour : CHROMA PINK, CHROMA GREY and CHROMA PASTEL.
With 4 different colour-ways to choose from, the CHROMA RUGS are the perfect way to add an extra dimension to any room. Each CHROMA design is available in five sizes, including 150cm, 180cm, 200cm, 250cm and 300cm, but can be made in any custom size to tailor to your needs and space. Over the last three years we’ve had the joy of seeing this design come to life in a diverse range of settings in almost every size imaginable.
The OPTICK RUGS
Riding a wave of success following the CHROMA rugs, Kitty and Simon set about planning a second collection. Similarly inspired by the signature pleating of Kitty’s clothing, the optick rugs expand the carved technique explored in the CHROMA range yet with a more reduced, bi-colour palette, with the aim of offering infinite colour customisation options for clients.
Rectangular in shape, with pleasing zigzag edges, the OPTICK RUGS incorporate four standard colourways carefully selected by Kitty to demonstrate the great variety of colour effects achievable with this unique bicolour design.
The OPTICK RUG colourways, ‘SUN’, ‘SKY’, ‘WATER’ and ‘GERANIUM’ are inspired by the therapeutic colours of nature - a way of bringing the colour experience of nature outdoors, indoors. The design of the OPTICK RUGS allows for an alternative viewing experience from different angles, giving a chance for each colour to pop, shift and change - living colour in your space.
