A look inside a Wellington residence

R. Killeen and M. Reed featured in a Wellington residence.

Probably one of our favourite interiors featuring two of our most prominent artists.
The eye-catcher wall piece by Richard Killeen and a classic Micheal Reed defines the seating area. We love to see our clients get creative and make full use of these iconic rugs. 

Every generation includes people who curate only the very best quality objects in their environments. The sheer luxury of stepping onto soft wool pile in one’s own home, or walking across a captivating rug design that extends a personal aesthetic, gives a quotidian tactile and visual satisfaction. 

This contemplated tribute to local fine arts and crafts helps express our community’s creative path from one generation to the next.

We have the privilege to work with established artists who each have their own creative style to translate artistic ideas onto textile floor coverings like hand-tufted rugs or wall-to-wall broadloom. 

It can be an interesting challenge to maintain the integrity of the artists’ work when combining it with the extra dimension of colours in textile, increased scale and making an aesthetic and functional product that will be walked on and admired horizontally -most of the time-.  

In typical New Zealand fashion of having to prove and do everything yourself before something becomes possible - now comes the effort of finding if abstraction is possible for me.
