Christian Fischbacher: Flowers and art on chenille flat weave
The new Prêt à Porter collection of carpet maker Christian Fischbacher combines cotton chenille with novelty yarns in an elaborate jacquard weave that gives the flatweave a highly tactile surface. Some carpets are transfer printed as a refinement.
The collection spans six designs ranging in tone from subtle to richly vibrant. The Estival design recalls the watercolour flowers and leaves of Mexican art, while Celestial brings out countless stars and constellations. Then there’s Interfloral, featuring giant flowers in precise detail, and Lisboa – inspired by Portuguese floor tiles. Linares is a design of wavy lines that recall a river bed, and last but not least is Fiesta, with superimposed colour zones.
All rugs are Oeko-Tex certified and come in the four standard sizes of 140 x 200 cm, 170 x 240 cm, 200 x 280 cm and 240 x 340 cm.
