I used to think -- and I still do -- that the Garnet Hill catalogue took some of its inspiration from Kaffe Fassett for their colorful, non-traditional rugs.
But their new brand new collection reveals another knitterly source, don't you think?
The catalogue copy credits Matisse -- but that's just 50% of the designer's inspiration. (It also calls the miters "angles". Coming from a catalogue whose copy occasionally labels crocheted items as "handknit", this doesn't surprise me much.)
Mitered-blanket aces Kay and Ann are taking over the world of home decor, one square at a time. I can just see some wild and crazy knitter embarking on a combination of bold intarsia flowers and mitered squares. And felting them all into a bohemian-chic rug for good measure.
(All rugs to be found in the Home category of the Garnet Hill online catalogue).
