Recently arrived at 2Modern is the Quill collection of modern rugs, a collaboration between the Japanese-born, Brooklyn-based designer, Nao Tamura, and Spanish rugs brand Nanimarquina. A suite of three leaf-shaped, 100% wool carpets, the Quill collection's organic shapes, subtle patterning, and subdued colorways were actually inspired by the delicate structure of a feather. “Like nature where no two shapes are alike, each Quill rug has its own expression like a living creature,” explains the designer.
Like many of Nanimarquina's hand-crafted rugs, the Quill collection was created by highly skilled craftspeople working in India. A painstaking, hand tufted technique, applied by experienced hands, gives each Quill rug its singular character, each rug's linear repeat pattern approximating a line drawing against a wash of color. Three sizes and three complementary pale colors are featured in the Quill suite, making these contemporary rugs well suited to being displayed individually or in combination with each other.
