While producing my premiere fabric line, MK Collection, I created several stand-alone designs that weren't a good fit for the repeats in a line of fabric, but begged to be given their own medium," says Kirkpatrick. Christopher Farr lent his renowned artisanal resources to the launch. The partnership resulted in four rugs designed by Kirkpatrick that convey a lyrical approach to contemporary design.
The rugs are hand-loomed in Turkey and made from a combination of 100 percent raw silk and wool. Their painterly qualities can be executed in virtually any color to enhance a wide range of interior designs.
"Melissa brings to design a coherent vision drawn and extracted from the natural world," says Christopher Farr. "When you fuse this with a discipline and rigor that comes with a near obsessive demand for quality in material and execution, the result is an auspicious debut
collection of rare depth and understanding."
