Fort Street Studio Goes GREEN

On Fort Street Studio’s social media pages throughout August 2017, we celebrated one of Janis’ favorite colors (and the Pantone Color of Year), green! Here’s a recap of some of our favorite green moments from the month.

 

TRANSFORMATION TUESDAY

Fort Street Studio rugs all begin as original paintings by Principals and Creative Directors Janis Provisor and Brad Davis. They work in many mediums – watercolor and other paint, pen and ink, photography, etc – working in bold bright colors to create greater constrast between painterly elements. They then digitally manipulate their creations using proprietary computer software.

Two popular rug designs, Argyle and Broadband, had original artwork that started out green. Can you see how the pattern for Argyle was digitally manipulated to be mirrored and repeated?

BEAUTIFUL INSTALLATIONS

Some of our favorite rooms utilize green carpets in creative and compelling ways. From lime to sage, evergreen to kelly green, this verdant hue can be either fun or sophisticated, either muted or bold.

Bradley Stephens of Stephens Design Group used a wool Corrugated Sage rug underfoot during the Hampton Designer Showhouse in 2013. The rug is carved high-low and has an ombré effect from corner to corner.

This Hong Kong designer and tastemaker paired our Leaves Light Green wool rug with mid-century furniture and ethnic decorative pieces in her flamboyant work studio (as first published in Design Anthology).

This design firm created some seriously relaxing vibes in this soothing green bedroom by using our Bracket Green wild silk rug underfoot. Who wouldn’t want to spend a cozy Sunday morning here? (As first published in Luxe).

 

CUSTOM PROJECTS

At Fort Street Studio, we have the capability to customize any rug design to fit the design scheme called for in any project. Our talented Art Department works with clients’ fabric selections, paint chips, or pantones to tailor our signature colorways to fit a designer’s needs. We shared a few of our favorite green custom-color projects from this year.

In the below project for powerhouse designer Amy Lau, you can see the full customization process for this custom-color Orbit – from rendering, to bespoke rug, to final installation.

RENDERINGS FROM THE ART DEPARTMENT

Our Art Department can present a few different versions of a custom-color, so designers can present multiple options to their clients. Here’s an example of our Walton rug design customized off an extensive tropical palette:

Design lovers can all agree on one thing – playing with color is fun! We leave you with a few of our favorite green custom-color renderings from our Art Department. How would you decorate a room around these rugs?
