For those well versed in the visual language of rugs, the colors, shapes, sizes and details reveal the local plant-life, cultural beliefs, and prominent historical events.
Where are the rugs that reflect a modern City in 2016?
What story of Los Angeles do we tell in lines and shapes, and textures beneath our feet?
We launched RugYourCity in 2015, when we invited colleagues in design and architecture to interpret New York City as a rug design. We received five final submissions — all unique perspectives on New York — and successfully funded their production on Kickstarter.
Now, while those designs are being woven and knotted, we are moving on to the second Design Challenge for RugYourCity, and we let our Kickstarter backers choose its focus. This time, our sights are set on Los Angeles.
Designers around the world will be able to submit a design that reflects their interpretation of Los Angeles as a rug. The deadline for submissions is 12:00AM PST, July 15, 2016. Our team will review the designs to insure that they can be produced as rugs.*
The designs will be shared on Floorplan's Facebook page and will be open to the public for voting.
The 5 designs with the most likes on our Facebook page by the voting deadline will be declared the winners and will be produced as handmade rugs! These rugs will then be sold through Floorplan locations and on floorplanrugs.com.
