Rangoli Rug

Design Within Reach

Renowned for playful forays in color and texture, rug designer Nani Marquina takes a bold, circular approach with her Rangoli Rug (2008). Rangoli takes its name and inspiration from classic Hindu mosaics. A popular art in India, it¿s a form of sand-painting that uses finely ground white powder. In this interpretation, the round pattern is handtufted in graphic black and white wool, beginning in the center and emanating outward. Its dynamic pattern is portrayed in neutral colors, ideal for > MORE placement in front of a sectional sofa, under a round dining room table or in an entry room. Marquina had a career as a textile designer before switching to rug design and creating her own company in 1986. In 2005, she was honored with the National Design Award from the Barcelona Center of Design. Together with the nonprofit Care & Fair, Nani Marquina is fighting against illegal child labor in the manufacturing of carpets. ^ LESS
