Our Mood Board with Solace

Our Mood Board with Solace

Solace is Wendy’s most reflective and contemplative piece yet. A glorious hand-knotted heirloom rug, made from a 100% wool base with hand-carved details in silk, Solace is a simple, stunning combination of four colours – gold, black, violet, and warm white. A wonderful addition to our neutral rug collection, Solace combines her minimal colour palette with a striking, detailed design, inspired by intricate embroidery.

Gold has long been a favourite as a neutral in Wendy’s designs – a colour that sits well amongst others and still manages to stand out, adding elegance and a luxurious look to complex designs that are still easy to place within the home.

"Solace was very much inspired by the need for contemplation, creating a calming and peaceful ambience for internal reflection. I did feel the need to create such a piece - more meditative - quite possibly as a response to the pandemic. I loved the idea of simple luxury with the light wool base and the gold silk details."
