Diurne for Perennials®
Perennials Fabrics sophisticated line of outdoor textiles becomes even more indulgent with the launch of Parisian-based Diurne for Perennials, an exclusive 100% solution dyed acrylic fiber rug collection. The all-weather, high performance trademarked designs were first introduced at the Monaco Yacht Show where Perennials and Sutherland exhibited their outdoor textiles and furnishings in 2010. Now they are available throughout the United States.
Ann Sutherland’s long-standing relationship and friendship with Diurne, broadens the product offerings from Perennials. The partnership collaborated to bring Diurne to the United States via the “rug galleries” and displays their artistic designs at all six David Sutherland showrooms creating interior rug paintings for the floors and walls. Now, using the latest technologies employed by Perennials combined with Diurne’s artistic talents, interior designers and architects have the ability to bring the beauty and refinement from the inside out to extend living spaces beyond the main dwelling.
Woven by skilled craftsmen in Nepal from solution dyed acrylic fibers that are shipped direct from Perennials own mills, each rug is hand-knotted into modern floor coverings to ground the contemporary outdoor living space. Designers can even select specific colors and customize the rugs to fit within the design project perimeters. The hands-on, custom approach produces rugs made of superior quality that is pure art.
The rugs are uniquely designed based around a constant theme. Whether a geometric grid or the fluidity of organic lines grouped together, each represents a point of view taken from everyday life. These artistic forms of expression combined with close attention to the hand-crafted details, highlight Perennials’ exclusive fibers thereby creating a parallel from drawing to completed rug.
Gallerie Diurne was founded in 1982 and is located in the heart of Paris’ French quarter. Its designs span three decades with inspiration taken from the natural world, Japanese prints, and the stained glass windows of European cathedrals.
The Perennials all-weather rug collection is available exclusively to interior designers and architects through David Sutherland Showrooms and other fine showrooms across the US. To view the collection, visit www.perennialsfabrics.com.
