This week marks the official launch of the highly anticipated Celerie Kemble by Merida rug collection featuring 9 all-new designs and 23 new SKUs. The partnership marries Kemble’s eclectic approach to design with Merida’s timeless, beautiful aesthetic making for a unique line of rugs that are full of life and rich with texture. A major inspiration and driving force behind the collection was an innate fascination with the art of bleeding color seen in ikats, watercolors, and in nature. This inspiration is carried throughout the wool, wool/linen blend, sisal, and abaca designs within the collection and is reflected through the expert color blending and irregular, organic shapes. Without further ado, we are happy to present to you the Celerie Kemble by Merida rug Collection.
This signature pattern was named for the energy and movement that it conveys. Inspired by the classic chevron print, this design is the ideal way to add excitement to and brighten up a room. Available in 6 unique colorways.
Available in two understated yet stunning un-dyed colorways, this design evokes elegant, imperfect linear stripes similar to those created by the traditional plough when tilling soil to bring fresh nutrients to the surface. The result is an almost wave-like soft stripe.
This ombre inspired pattern creates a subtle bleeding color effect that takes on a different look and feel depending on its surroundings and how light is cast on it. Available in 4 expertly blended color combinations.
This horizontal pattern is a fun play on bleeding color. The truly striking design has a wonderful sense of motion that seems both randomized and systematic at the same time.
The sole tufted pattern in this debut collection, Craze beautifully translates the art of color bleeding to a soft chevron pattern. The juxtaposition between the shag construction and the tailored woven Catalyst design play well off of each other in this collection.
Inspired by Celerie’s book, Black and White (and a Bit in Between), the Belted Stripe rug features a low profile weave that makes it sleek and elegant.
Very unique for Merida, this sisal pattern features an unstructured organic shape originally sketched out by Celerie herself. The bold texture is an ideal way to add interest to a space.
Inspired by the intricate, ornate designs seen in medallions throughout the world, this weave lends delicate texture that pairs well with both structured shapes and organic, rounded shapes.
This stunning jute rug was named after the cocoon like shapes that give it its unique texture. Subtle color variations give this rug depth and add interest.
