Paris, 2015. The collaboration between the complementary worlds of India Mahdavi and La Manufacture Cogolin has resulted in an exciting new collection: Jardin Intérieur. A world-renowned name in the world of interior design, furniture design and decor, India Mahdavi is behind the interiors of famous hotels and restaurants, as well as a collection of furniture available in her Paris showroom. The multi-award winning designer was recently named as one of AD’s top 100 international architecture and design talents in 2014.
The designer’s love for craftsmanship and her contrasting designs have found an incredible creative playground at La Manufacture Cogolin. Inspired by bohemian and Oriental culture, India Mahdavi brings us a new twist on a kilim taken to another level by the talented artisans at La Manufacture Cogolin. India Mahdavi has broken with the brand’s tradition of rugs made using a single repeat pattern. Jardin Intérieur, a modern version of the kilim, is a collection of 6 different patterns that can be assembled in a myriad of ways into a single composition, resulting in a unique creation for each project. The varying pile heights and visible backgrounds bring depth to the surprising colour pairings.
“I’ve used rugs by La Manufacture Cogolin in several projects because of their unique weave. These rugs have real personality. The collaboration with La Manufacture on a collection was a perfectly natural evolution of our relationship,” says India Mahdavi. India Mahdavi’s sense of colour and perspective is the perfect match for La Manufacture Cogolin’s expertise as two complementary visions come together. The Jardin Intérieur collection will be displayed during D’Days2015 and exhibited in the brand’s Paris showroom.
