Sleep Integration large area rug, 2012
110 x 141 x 0.3 in
279 x 358 x 0 cm
This large, 9’ 2” by 11’ 9”, unique rug design was inspired by the artwork of Claire Desjardins. The painting that was used as a reference, is called "Sleep Integration", which is a whimsical piece that she painted in 2011, while at the artist residency, the Vermont Studio Center.
The whimsical pattern, the happy colours all reference her daily daydreams, and how they sometimes intertwine with her awakened hours, and how they shape her days.
The rug was hand woven in India, and it took the manufacturers 180 days to make it, as they duly noted each brush stroke, and each intonation that the artist intended, during her work. The bamboo silk has a slightly shorter pile than the wool pile does, creating an interesting, subtle change texture. The wool has a matte feel to it, while the silk has a sheen to it, that appears to change as one walks around it, due to the light shining on it from various angles. There is a lovely, luxurious feel to this one of a kind rug.
