Emily Forgot - Modular (Amity)
The collection is colourful and in-keeping with Emily Forgot’s structural style of design and each are intended to work either as statement pieces in a minimal setting or additions to an already colourful, maximalist space. The individual pieces also act as an assemblage and are designed to be joined together, forming one 'modular' rug.

The inspiration for the rug comes from her daughters, who told her about the Christmas festival and the tradition of leaving gifts under the Christmas tree. Original rugs designed by rural weavers spontaneously on the loom using leftover yarn from the industry.
