Modern Design Rugs "From Alexandra with Love"

Design rugs created by Alexandra Perfect, realized by Djoharian carpets in Lohr.

As is so often the case, it all began when two creative minds met unexpectedly. Alexandra was looking for rugs for her new home. She had already visited a few rug shops and furniture houses in her home town, but could not find the right designs. When she researched the Internet, she noticed the Djoharian Collection positively.
During a visit to Lohr it quickly became clear that her demands on design and quality required a special solution. As an abstract painter, it was her wish that her paintings should harmonize with the rugs. An individual solution was needed.
Karl-Heinz Ahmad Djoharian - rug dealer with heart and soul - suggested visiting Alexandra to look at the paintings. He was enthusiastic about Alexandra's Art and the idea arose to realize the painting as rugs. The possibilities to implement this were available, Djoharian has rugs knotted according to customer requirements in many countries.
Due to the complex color gradients in the paintings, it was clear that this could only be realized with considerable effort and with a large number of different threads and color nuances (finaly 20 shades). Djoharian has an excellent production partner in Nepal who can implement such demanding designs. The first drafts were colored and the yarns selected. Production could begin.
Alexandra and Karl-Heinz are currently creating carpets in a square format, as this corresponds to the painting "Jungle", which was the inspiration for the first series. Further designs and formats are still being implemented.

Alexandra works primarily with oil paints and spray cans, but also creates realistic drawings with pencil.

There is always a lot to talk about when choosing colors - especially when there are 1200 different threads to choose from. Dog Amy participates with great pleasure.
