TORONTO, Canada -- Creative Matters, a custom floor and wallcoverings source for designers and architects, will present its interactive Art Day workshops for rug design enthusiasts at Domotex in Hannover, Germany, Jan. 11 - Jan. 14, 2019.

The company also announced that its custom fair-trade rug for the refurbished mid-century modern lobby of Toronto boutique hotel, The Anndore House, is a finalist for a 2019 Carpet Design Award in the Best Interior category. The 100% wool hand-tufted lobby carpet was designed by Creative Matters' Sandra Ciganic-McKinney for Studio Munge and crafted in Thailand. Winners in each of eight categories will be announced at The Carpet Design Awards ceremony on January 12, 2019 in Hall 9.

Art Day Workshops

Designers get creative at Creative Matters Art Day workshops, which will be held during Domotex 2019 in Germany.

Creative Matters will collaborate with Cover magazine and Domotex to present its Art Day workshops, and will exhibit its latest contemporary, fair trade creations at booth B40 (Hall 9) throughout the exhibition.  "The one-hour workshops are an opportunity for Domotex visitors to try their hand at a floor covering design and gain insight into the unique way we approach rug creation," said Carol Sebert, president of Creative Matters. "Art Day is the time we take and method we use to generate fresh ideas. Our clients depend on us for inspiring creations, ready to customize to their requirements. These workshops have enabled us to build an extensive searchable archive of designs as well as to develop our own collections of hand-knotted rugs." she said.

Domotex 2019 marks the second time that Cover magazine and Domotex have worked together to present the Art Day workshops. In line with the Domotex 2019 theme, "Create'N'Connect", Creative Matters Art Day workshops will offer trade show visitors the opportunity to create a design of their own. Up to eight participants per workshop will have an hour to experiment with pastel, charcoal, ink and wax resist on paper. The guided workshops will be available throughout Domotex. "The process is always a lot of fun and it will give participants an insight into the complexities and nuance of rug design," said Thilo Horstmann, project director at Domotex.
