Helen Yardley at Design Junction London 2012 – Drawings for Floors

 British designer, Helen Yardley says that there was a moment when she started to see rugs as essentially drawings for floors. And the people started asking for wall hangings which are, presumably, drawings for floors on walls.  Her designs are bold, abstract and full of color. And we are looking forward to seeing them at Design Junction as part of BlogTour London.

Rugs by Helen Yardley As Yardley says, rugs are seen from every angle. And they perform a range of functions – you sit on them, you lie on them, you touch them and you use them to anchor a space.

POD rug by Helen Yardley

This is one of our favorites, Pod which, like all of the rugs we feature in this post, is made from 100% Pure New Zealand Wool. The design seems to tumble, flow and fall.

Force in cerise  rug by Helen Yardley

Force, shown here in cerise, is as bright as it is dynamic. These are rugs that make the most of the opportunity of the space. No one is going to walk over a rug by Helen Yardley.

Snail rug by Helen Yardley

And here’s a couple more.  Above is Endo, shown here in Midnight. It reminds me, in its feeling, of Van Gough’s Starry Starry Night. Would Helen Yardley recognise that? I don’t know but hope to ask her at Design Junction. And under it is Snail with its petal like motif and delightfully balanced colors and tones. We really are very excited about seeing Helen’s work at Design Junction in September.
