Entry Description

The collaboration between Ex Interiors and Desso resulted in a unique carpet collection that is more than the sum of the contributions of the two partners. Taking inspiration from the world of art in muted weathered colours and multi-layered patterns, the collection is about connecting people, areas and different interior design elements. The collection offers 115 different designs in near endless combinations for a modern and layered scheme. It is especially suited to particularizing and personalizing special areas in a room. Each combination of colour and patterns presents a unique ambiance – whether it is a calm and soothing backdrop in quiet areas, to a more vibrant and upbeat vibe in spaces where people meet. Echoing the same pattern from one room to another can also help bridge the space between disconnected areas, while colours can be used to indicate where one area ends and another begins.
