FROM HAUTE COUTURE TO HOME COUTURE
Dutch soft furnishing label Frankly Amsterdam presents unique wallrugs designed by couturier Claes Iversen
Frankly Amsterdam manufactured over 10 different wallrugs, designed by Claes Iversen for Vondel Hotels. First, the textile-label handtufted the series of wallrugs, after which Iversen’s Amsterdam-based studio finished them by adding handmade embroideries. The project was presented at the textile event “Home Couture” of high-quality interior design store Co van der Horst in Amstelveen on the 21st of June.
ABOUT FRANKLY AMSTERDAMS "ONE-OF-A-KINDS"
Next to the standard collection, Frankly Amsterdam offers the possibility of designing your own special rug. The customer communicates her idea, which the label then develops into a one-of-a-kind, made-to-measure rug. In a brand new company movie, which was also presented at the textile event, Frankly Amsterdam explains how this process works. A good example of this is the series of wallrugs by design of Claes Iversen. This project is one of the many impressive projects that the label was able to add to an evergrowing portfolio.
Frankly Amsterdam has already contributed to projects like Hotel the Dylan, A’DAM toren, Hotel Boutique Parc Broekhuizen, and the privet office of Tommy Hilfiger himself on Madison Avenue in New York City.
