Alexander McQueen for The Rug Company

Monarch Fire by Alexander McQueen for The Rug Company

The Rug Company launched its original collaboration with Alexander McQueen in 2010 after working on the collection of cushions, wall and floor coverings for three years. McQueen died a few months ahead of the launch. Now his successor, Sarah Burton, who has taken the brand global over the past couple of years – and wowed the fashion world with her evermore rarified shows – has picked up where McQueen left off with a new collection featuring prints inspired by her 2011 debut, Folklore. As with all The Rug Company’s beautiful designs these are major investments but they will also last a lifetime. The Monarch Fire hand-knotted silk rug (pictured) or Poppy Night wall-hanging are exquisite pieces to own; the cushions are a slightly more accessible way to get a little bit of the McQueen magic.
