This Week Nazmiyal Features A Beautiful Vintage Emilio Pucci Carpet
Legendary Italian designer Emilio Pucci’s kaleidoscopic carpet is an absolute treasure. With sweeping french curves and a vintage palate, this is a true one-of-a-kind find of pop art rug design. As far as the vintage mid-century modern movement is concerned, it simply does not get much better than this – in every way, shape and form imaginable.
Geometric patterns with pops of bold color are eponymous with Pucci’s style. An influence that swept through fashion, interior design and politics, Puccini’s designs dominated from the late 1940’s to today.
Most famous for his creativity with stretch fabrics, Emilio Pucci got his style start in ski and swimwear design. His liberal use of bold colors grew as he experimented with fine silk scarves and blouses. After gaining a following with Marilyn Monroe, Sophia Loren and Jacky Kennedy, Pucci’s name became an international fashion symbol.
Like his clothing, this huge area rug features a dramatic geometric design. The vibrant, festive pattern is best known as the Pucci Print, embodying the lively energy of the man and his legacy.
