Tai Ping Gives the Yacht Collection a Maritime-Minded Palette

Iceland supplies the chilly backdrop for Floe, a rug series from Tai Ping so named for the frozen masses that form across the seas surrounding the Nordic island. Colloquially referred to as the Yacht Collection, the 18 patterns suggest rippling texture and movement via a medley of geometrics, gradients, and florals; shades like classic navy and deep ultramarine wade into the maritime-minded palette. But the waterborne connection isn’t solely stylistic: select patterns like Vinda are hand tufted from Field, the manufacturer’s new proprietary solution-dyed acrylic. Available in 36 colors, the all-weather fiber replicates the sheen and texture typically confined to indoor rugs, rendering them seaworthy—at least on deck.
