Kate Thornley-Hall teams up with Quake Furniture

Toronto-based interior designer Kate Thornley-Hall and Lisa Turner, creative director/owner of Quake Furniture have teamed up to release the new Cedar carpet. Inspired by Turner's drawings and celebrating the outdoor environment and landscape of the Pacific Northwest, the bark pattern features Thornley-Hall's trademark bold, colour-saturated design elements. “I love to see my art realized in new mediums,” says Turner. “To have my designs evolve from the natural world and become transformed by colour, materials and finishes for the home has been so rewarding. Kate's creativity, vision and talent, combined with my artistic inspiration, has been a wonderful symbiotic adventure.” Retailing for $110/sq.ft. the Nepalese-made hand-knotted Chinese silk and Tibetan wool carpet, available in a variety of colours to fit both statement and pared down esthetics, is being manufactured in both standard and custom sizes. “The materials chosen to produce the Cedar design enrich the pattern created by Lisa, adding physical texture and creating visual impact,” says Thornley-Hall. “Using rich, saturated colours, we could juxtapose the organic material in a pop art way that still honoured Canada and our natural surroundings, but also felt modern and bold at the same time.”
