Every rug should either have rhythm or flow. Geometrics are the rhythm section. I am constantly working on interesting geometrical designs and I particularly like designs which have a curve to them as opposed to being totally linear and angular. The Pomme D’Amour design was based on what I thought was a 16th Century French tile design but I have since discovered that this design is in fact Roman in origin. It just goes to show that everything is derivative apart from perhaps cave paintings. I always think of geometric designs as singularly masculine, perhaps it is the regimented order and lack of whimsy, but they have an understated chic about them that just quietly underlines everything else in a room.
