A self-confessed daydreamer, Carmellia Indrawati takes a whimsical approach to design, bringing splashes of bright colour and a touch of playfulness to all her pieces, exemplified in her award-winning Marmalade rug for Carmellia Indrwawati x FLOOR_STORY.
Marmalade was inspired by the architecture of London, particularly the Art Deco cinemas and Tube stations that impressed the Indonesian designer when she first arrived in the city, and blends a 1920s aesthetic with a 1970s retro feel. At once sleek, glamorous and joyful, thanks to its vibrant teal colourway, it’s the perfect eye candy.
Recent recipient of the ‘Hand-knotted Rug of the Year’ at the Wool Carpet and Rug Awards, supported by the Campaign for Wool, Marmalade is ethically hand-knotted in Nepal by the world’s finest artisan rug makers from a combination of wool and viscose.
Carmellia Indrawati, says on her Marmalade rug, “Marmalade was inspired by London. The city has a wide range of architectural styles, but Art Deco stood out the most for me when I first arrived; I was floored by the fact that there’s an Art Deco building on almost every corner. I’ve always been attracted to the sleekness and balance that Art Deco architecture embodies.”
