BEC BRITTAIN / EDWARD FIELDS

Lighting designer Bec Brittain creates the Taxonomy rug collection for Edward Fields.

BEC BRITTAIN/EDWARD FIELDS

Inspired by Bec Brittain’s fascination with an array of scientific fields, such as geology and entomology, Taxonomy comprises nine daring rug designs, meticulously hand-tufted from silk and wool. The collection of rugs presents a series of vivid contrasts, exploring organic geometries of the natural world with designs that create paradoxes, such as using the softest, most luxurious fibers to create patterns evocative of hardened volcanic rock. The collection includes nine designs, evoking the beauty of the natural world, and is inspired by scientific classification. edwardfields.com
