A reflection of the unravelling of time itself; the skeleton of a maple and the shadow of its memory, the peeling skin of a silver birch and tumbling stones in a rushing brook, Deirdre Dyson returns to the international stage with the launch of her striking new Vista Collection at Maison & Objet Paris.
Stimulated by nature’s ephemeral splendour, the nine new carpet designs showcase Deirdre’s signature contemporary style.
Deirdre Dyson’s training in fine art is apparent in her masterful use of colour across the collection. In ‘Bullrushes’, the gradual change in hue and precise contrast in light and shade create the illusion of reflection on still water to beautiful effect. Similarly, the tonal change in ‘Lily Pond’ emphasises the depth of the pond and contrasts effectively with the brightness of the lily pads – a circular silhouette makes this a true representation of the natural world. Deirdre’s characteristic wit is exemplified in ‘Unravel’, drawing on the core inspiration of real landscapes, whilst depicting the concept of unravelling threads, naturally colour-graded to perfection.
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, who use Chinese or Indian silk and the finest Tibetan wool. Or they can be hand-tufted in Scotland or Yorkshire, from the best quality New Zealand wool.
