Fiona Lynch, interior designer and co-founder of respected Melbourne design firm Doherty Lynch has recently moved on to set up her own studio in Collingwood, and one of her first solo projects is this vibrant range of rugs for Irish goat-hair rug manufacturer Tretford, entitled ‘Fields‘.  Its Fiona’s first foray into product design, and we reckon she’s onto a winner!

Fiona has had a long association with Tretford and its Australian agent, Gibbon Group, through various interior projects which have resulted in bespoke rug designs for residential clients. However, it was an abstract, geometric-patterned rug with pops of yellow and magenta originally commissioned for a Melbourne client that inspired this formal collaboration.  The range is designed using Tretford’s signature hard-wearing goat hair weave, and assembled in Australia.

The bold colour palette, which includes four brights and two neutrals, has been carefully selected by Fiona from Tretford’s extensive colour range, and pieced together to form striking geometric shapes.  The resulting patterns reference the block colours of 1960’s American field painters, and also draw inspiration from aerial landscapes – a reference point which is reflected, too, in the campaign imagery for this debut collection, photographed by Derek Swalwell.

The Fields range of rugs comes in various sizes, from 1.4m to 3m wide.  There are also circular and hall runner options in every colourway!  The range is available from Angelucci in Melbourne, and Koskela in Sydney.  Enquiries can also be made to Fiona directly via her website.
