All over the world, throughout time, people have produced geometric works of art.  Circles and triangles have been found decorating Mesopotamian pottery from the 4th millennia BC. Geometric pattern dominated Ancient Greek and Roman art.

This age-old approach to pattern has been used as a form of expression for all time. Repetition of a simple geometric shape that ultimately creates a complex pattern is at the centre of my collection. The seemingly endless combinations that can be created fascinate me.

My design process starts in my sketchbook.I explore my primary research through drawing. My sketchbooks are always graph paper, which allows me to easily measure and space patterns.I then scan my sketches on to the computer where I re-draw them and examine scale, repeat size and colour. 

Each Geometric pattern with in our collection evolves this way.

Our decorative rugs collection has geometry at its heart.The warp& weft, vertical and horizontal nature of hand knotted rugs is created through the inter-weaving of a geometric structure. I embrace the integral nature of this technique in my designs.

Our collections of Geometric rugs are available in hand-knotted and hand-tufted qualities through our Made to Order rug service.

Our newest additions to our geometric rugs collection are the ‘Geocentric’ and ‘Checkered’ rugs. Both designs have distinctive geometric patterns. They are modern in design but due to their familiar pattern roots they will work equally well in a traditional interior scheme.

Our geometric cushion collection is designed to both compliment and enhance our decorative rugs collection.The collection explores a variety of embroidery techniques and natural materials.Notable new additions to our geometric cushions collection are the Geocentric and Berber cushions. 

The Geocentric cushions have precision and symmetry. The contrast of the dense machine embroidery against the un-dyed natural linen creates a striking and reflective effect. The Berber cushions are asymmetric and random in nature. They explore the negative and positive relationship of a pattern. Each cushion is hand embroidered in wool crewelwork on the front and reverse. One side is the positive motif the other is the negative.

Our collection of geometric inspired rugs and textiles explore ancient geometric and mathematical patterns and shapes.These ancient patterns appear utterly contemporary yet have their roots firmly in the past.
