Beni Rugs has been offering fully customizable tufted rugs since 2018, but this month it added customizable flatweaves to its lineup, marking the launch with a series of vibey interior renderings by Charlotte Taylor and Victor Roussel.
London-based designer Charlotte Taylor popped back on our radar recently with her Tiled House, a 3D rendered residence that begs the question: What if your whole house could be as hard to clean as the bathroom? All jokes aside, the eye-catching space is a bit of an engineering feat, real or imagined, as well as a kind of microcosm of the portfolio Taylor's been building over the past few years bridging those two worlds.
We've talked a lot on this site about how much 3D digital renderings have changed the game — most notably in their capacity to make the editorial photoshoot all but obsolete — but this was a new one even for us: For his first solo exhibition at the Copenhagen gallery Last Resort, Barcelona-based digital artist and designer Andrés Reisinger created more than 50 different 3D renderings for exhibition proposals before settling, with gallery director Peter Amby, on the final concept.
In their three-dimensionally rendered landscapes, Terzo Piano keeps creating images for worlds we only wish were real. The latest project from the Italian-based agency, with styling by Elisabetta Bongiorni, zooms in a bit from their typical room settings, giving us highly textured elements that beg to be touched.
A weekly Saturday recap to share with you our favorite links, discoveries, exhibitions, and more from the past seven days. This week: new Nordic rugs, a few fine configurations of brass, and a retail space that proposes a new feminine aesthetic—or does it?
Atelier Aveus's latest collection, The Wait, focuses on feelings triggered by liminal spaces, such as contemplation, passivity, and the distortion of time — all translated into three pieces of furniture. In these images, a room divider, a wall lamp, and a waiting sofa have been 3-D rendered in highly narrative scenes by Six N. Five to highlight those emotions.
Studio Proba is debuting a new four-piece rug concept titled Luster — blending bamboo silk, New Zealand wool, and metallic yarn — at Roll and Hill’s Mercer Street showroom, starting this Thursday. Punctuated by muted tones, the collection represents a break from Proba's usual brights and was created in the spirit of embracing challenge. “It’s rare to find metallic yarn in rugs meant for everyday use,” she says. “It was interesting to introduce it into a medium where it doesn’t belong.”

This week: great moments in color-blocking, an Instagram-induced existential crisis, and an iridescent shower that lifts a humdrum apartment renovation into the design stratosphere.
“A Lucid Dream in Pink, Sleep Cycle No 17,” by Swedish art director Anders Brasch-Willumsen, combines balloon-like lights, terrazzo surfaces, and occasional plants in spaces that could be galleries and showrooms just as easily as they could exist in the mind.
A weekly Saturday recap to share with you our favorite links, discoveries, exhibitions, and more from the past seven days. This week: sneak peeks from the upcoming Milan Furniture Fair, the Italian 3D rendering studio that's absolutely killing it, and the best salon-style art wall we’ve seen in recent memory.
