Louis de Poortere – Fading World collection
A brilliant mix of contemporary and vintage and inspired by the ongoing trend for distressed interiors, the Fading World collection is an extension of the popular Vintage collection. It comprises ‘rubbed away’ patterns and faded colours to give the rugs a faded look – one that, at the same time, boasts a contemporary twist.
An excellent example is the lovely Kilim collection, created using wool and cotton chenille on Jacquard Wilton looms. It’s available in a series of vibrant colours such as Wild Ruby, Bubble Green, Windsor Blue and Creole Spice as well as black.
Louis de Poortere – BoBohemian collection
A cross between bourgeois and bohemian, Louis de poortere’s BoBohemian collection comprises gorgeous top-quality rugs of wood and cotton chenille in an array of vibrant colours. The rugs in this collection have been subject to the flatweave technique on the Jacquard Wilton looms which makes the pile thinner and therefore perfect for placing under dining tables and chairs. At Vale Furnishers we offer the contemporary-looking Tribe and the intricate Flowers collections. The rug featured here is Blue Lagoon from the Tribe Collection:
Louis de Poortere – Cameo collection
Perfect for a shabby chic, country cottage or Nordic look, the Cameo collection offers a choice of ‘soft’ pastel colours in three designs. It would complement the lighter shades of a Scandinavian interior design style to a tee. One of our favourites from the collection is the pretty Multi range with its patchwork amalgamation of various delicate vintage patters in shades such as Bolshoi Pink, Pale Pistachio, Pinch of Cinnamon, and Vanilla Dream.
Louis de Poortere – Vintage Collection
Patchwork, Persian style and neutral – the Vintage Collection from Louis de Poortere offers a huge range of vibrant and subtle colours as well as three distinct design styles in a supersoft weave. Vintage with a nod to the modern home the striking Vintage Heriz rug is available in a range of deliciously contemporary shades such as Burnt orange, Olive, Antique Scarlet and Persian Pink.
