These Modernist-Inspired Rugs Make a Statement

Interior designer Fabrice Juan describes himself as an ardent defender of the French art of living. He looked to the work of his Modernist countrymen, such as Pierre Cardin and Jean Dewasne, to create the 14 round and rectangular rugs in his self-titled series for the Studio by Tai Ping. (That’s the Hong Kong company’s “ready-to-wear” line, available in standard sizes and colorways and buyable online.)

“I was lucky enough to discover Tai Ping’s work about 10 years ago,” Juan recalls. “I spontaneously presented my sketches to the team, convinced that only they could accurately transcribe the lines and colors I had in mind.”
