Lady Deirdre Dyson's design inspiration for 2019 includes nine new treatments which form the Plumage Collection.
With her intuitive eye for colour, Deirdre cleverly combines the bright shades (violet blues, cherry red, slate blue, black) and abstract markings of a pretty male sea duck for her Harlequin design.
Eagle is an impressive 3.4 metres wide, depicting the magnificent wing span of this majestic bird - the large scale allows Deirdre to include intricate feathery detail and create a spectacular three-dimensional effect through directional colour grading.
The rich colour palette of Golden Pheasant accurately reflects the beautiful tones of this quintessential British bird. Be the first to see the new collection unveiled on 18 January 2019 at the prestigious Maison et Objet interiors exhibition in Paris.
Deirdre says: “In this collection I have delved deep into the feathers of pheasants and abstracted designs of ducks. I singled out some feathers and enfolded carpets with others. Together they make a varied collection of colourful drama and soft luxury. In creating them, our brilliant craftspeople have succeeded with the most difficult technical challenges I have ever set them.”
Deirdre's practice as a fine artist allows her to expertly combine colours to create a beautiful composition that will enhance any surface. And she skillfully captures the shimmer of the natural oils of a feather through the use of gorgeous silk against a luxurious wool background.
Each Deirdre Dyson carpet is totally bespoke and can be fitted or free-standing. Customers can take inspiration from Deirdre’s ideas, but apply their own personal touch through colour, shape, size and design elements. Deirdre Dyson makes carpets to suit different budgets and applications. They can be hand-knotted by Tibetan experts, practiced in this ancient skill, in Chinese silk and Tibetan wool – our carpets are GoodWeave certified (https://goodweave.org/). Or they can be gun-tufted in the UK from the best quality wool.
