Discover Deirdre Dyson
Artist and designer Deirdre Dyson has a prolific career creating amazing paintings as well as gallery-worthy floor pieces. These days her main focus is her eponymous high-end ethical rug company. “I was asked by another carpet company to design a contemporary collection for them,” Dyson explains of how she made the transition from art to rugs. “I had studied painting, illustration and graphics and this extra skill with textile appealed to me.” Her own at-home style, she says, “is pure and simple”. Dyson goes on to say “I keep decoration to the minimum so as to not compete with the beautiful architectural features of the classic period house we live in.” But of course she makes both paintings and carpets the focus. The talented creative is quick to also mention “That cushions can make a remarkable difference.” Lauded by both clients and industry critics, the successful artist finds her palpable inspiration in “colour, the landscape, the sky and the skills of others.”
“I don’t think I have a typical day,” says Dyson. Rather she is so often juggling too many things that she favours dealing with what is most urgent each day. “But every day is spent in my studio except for my time in London every week in my showroom,” she explains.
I keep colour to the minimum with furniture but make paintings and carpets as the focus of colour.
Step Into Style
Often abstract and definitely always wonderfully graphic, the rug designs are crafted from wool and silk. Having grown to become the first port of call for high-end customers seeking luxurious pieces for their homes with a mind to create an unusual edge, these designs offer a timeless look.
