Samantha Anderson’s Rugs for Good Thing Nod to the Bauhaus
After years of proffering small-scale homewares, Good Thing is hitting the big time—literally. At ICFF 2017, the Brooklyn-based brand boosted the scope and scale of its offerings with furniture, lighting, and flooring debuts. The latter category launches with Samantha Anderson’s Falling Lines, a rug informed by Bauhaus stalwarts Josef and Anni Albers. “It’s an exercise in color theory, loosely structured around Josef’s Interaction of Color and the patternmaking so prevalent in Anni’s work,” the New York designer explains. Flatwoven by hand using New Zealand wool, the five iterations include purple Wildflower, light-tan Doe, yellow Turmeric, dusty-green Cactus, and deep-teal Sea. Standard sizes are 67 by 931⁄4 inches and 40 by 57; customization is also an option.
