Piergil Fourquié's area rug is a souvenir of a journey that took its designer from Europe to Asia and on to Japan. Fashioned in India in a workshop specialized in hand tufting, Ines is made of pure New Zealand wool and each section represents a facet of the voyage in a kaleidoscope of mixed colors or grey tones, woven in varied heights that beckon to be touched.

Rising French design brand Hartô was founded by Amandine Merle and Alexander Mulliez with only 10 introductory pieces. Today Hartô offers a full range of contemporary furniture, lighting and textiles. Working with about a dozen young designers, the collection displays an unrestrained, inventive and versatile attitude with its offerings. “We wanted to bring something new, with strong colors, in a feel-good spirit,” says Amandine. “Something fun and different in terms of style.”
Ironically, the name comes from a Spanish phrase “estoy harto” which means to have enough, indicating the company’s desire to move outside of what is usually seen in furnishings and decorative objects. “We chose this small word to translate our feeling, and put a circumflex over the ‘o’, to give our own little graphic touch,” Amandine explains. ”At Hartô, we love furniture and objects that are practical. We believe that interiors should adapt seamlessly to our lifestyle, every day."
