Iris Apfel has designed a maximalist carpet capsule for Ruggable

“I like style, I think it’s very important in life. I like it because it is something original and authentic. It’s nothing that God has given us, although I suppose God has given us the ability to do it. I think getting by on beauty alone is not a wise thing to do at all. Beauty fades over the years, but style remains». With these words released in an old interview from 2015 to Surface Magazine, Iris apple (who needs no introduction), is confirmed to be one of the most loved and long-lived women in the fashion system.

She, the undisputed goddess of flamboyant fashion and daring combinations, recognized by specialized chronicles as a true style icon, has decided to blow out 101 candles with a collection of maximalist carpets in collaboration with Ruggableto celebrate his image. Twenty pieces of design (fifteen carpets and five doormats) bring to the stage a vibrant and expressive line for the home, just like the personality of the New York icon. A praise of his unmistakable genius style.

The patterns range from the most classic Persian carpets and paisley – characterized by the famous drop-shaped plant motif of Persian origin – to the more eccentric and extravagant covered with tropical elements such as multicolor birds, flowers, butterflies, elegant dragonflies and exotic animals. His passion for colors and for the “more is more and less is a bore” has given life to twenty pieces in bright tones. From light blue to green through cobalt blue and purplish red, the collection Ruggable x Iris Apfel is now available on the brand’s website with prices ranging from $129 to $979.

Always inspired by her great love for nature, the new line of home furnishings includes not only a series of maximalist carpets, but also a selection of five minimalist doormats (which is almost a shame to get dirty). For the latter, his iconic oversized glasses – with such a style that they were also the subject of an exhibition at The Costume Institute in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2005 – become the protagonists of the capsule.

“I opened a bag and then another, and what I saw made my eyes light up: a gigantic mass of small scraps of fabric of different colors. There were fragments of all kinds, all shapes and sizes.”said the designer, from the top of her huge round glasses, between the pages of the book Iris Apfel: Accidental Icon. Who knows if even in this case – through the collaboration with Ruggable – the feeling of amazement and joy was the same.
