This design is adapted from a carpet at the home that Wright designed for his son, David. Wright and his apprentice, Ling Po, reworked the design from one of a series of twelve illustrations that Wright created in 1927 for the cover of Liberty Magazine. For this design, “March Balloons,” Wright used one of his favorite geometric shapes, the circle, to create an assemblage of colorful, overlapping balloons. Hand-tufted in Thailand of New Zealand wool.
About the Frank Lloyd Wright Collection
Classic Rug Collection was selected by the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation to design and market several series of rugs based on Wright’s designs. The company was chosen in part based on my Klimt Collection, which illustrates beautifully how I can work with an artist’s designs to interpret them and translate them into rugs. The most important part of the collection is the Signature Series, a group of hand-knotted and hand-tufted rugs made at the highest quality level. The initial collection has five rugs and two runners.
All of the products in the Signature Series can be ordered in any color, size, or material; there are also stock sizes available for immediate delivery. We can also make custom Frank Lloyd Wright designs. Please contact us for more information.
