COMPANY C ANNOUNCES COLLABORATION WITH ARTIST AND PRODUCT DESIGNER JILL SEALE
Debuting at Las Vegas Market, a new collection by artist Jill Seale for Colorfields, features machine made printed rug designs based on marbled paper. Shown, Rolling Sands.
Las Vegas -- Company C, the award-winning New Hampshire-based design and manufacturing company, announces its collaboration with artist and product designer Jill Seale through the introduction of new rugs for its Colorfields collection.
The rug designs, to be displayed in vignettes at Las Vegas Market in Building A, Space 225, are based on the art form of marbled paper which involves floating pigments and paints on water, and transferring those patterns onto paper. This enchanting art has been catching the human eye for centuries. Updated and translated for today, the new designs are the perfect modern centerpiece for the home.
The bold Artic Circle rug by artist Jill Seale for Colorfields creates a marble effect in blue and ivory.
"The collaboration with Jill Seale centers on great design and is underscored by our shared belief of living life colorfully - exploring new artistic endeavors, traveling the world for inspiration and expressing oneself through interpretative design," said Christine Chapin, co-founder and colorful living officer at Company C.
The rugs are machine made and digitally printed to keep the intricacy of the design intact as it is translated to textile form. The initial launch includes five designs: Caldera, Marble, Arctic Circle, Sea Mist and Rolling Sands.
Sophisticated and modern, Caldera by Jill Seale for Colorfields is a mix of soft gray and driftwood neutrals, with accents of warm caramel and deep red.
"Our mutual zeal for color drew us together and I am privileged to be able to design for Company C using this classic art form of paper marbling. After learning with the masters in Florence, Italy, I bring my own creative dialogue to this time-honored craft, carrying it into a new generation of homes and lives," said artist Jill Seale.
Market attendees are invited to attend live demonstrations that will be held in the Company C showroom, located in Building A, Space 225 during Las Vegas Market on Monday, January 28th at 10:30am, 1:30pm, and 4:30pm. RSVP is not required. Limited edition silk hand scarves will be distributed to the first 150 attendees. Seale will showcase the marbling technique and speak to the audience while creating live works of art.
