Award Winning Rug Designs
Jenny is the only Australian designer, and one of very few women, to have won a prestigious Carpet Design Award. This places Jenny into an elite group of carpet designers. She is currently recognised as one of the best contemporary rug designers in the world.
In 2012, Jenny won the Best Modern Design category at the Domotex International Rug Expo held in Hannover, Germany. The award was won for the eye-catching aqua rug ‘Ruby Room’. Hand-knotted in wool and bamboo silk the design features a beaded overlay or ‘curtain’ over an abstract feminine form “It has a wonderful sense of mystery and intrigue about it” explains Jenny.
While the winning design is in a dynamic aqua-lime colourway it is available to order in other colours and is part of Jenny’s Connextion collection.
Jenny was again invited to Domotex in 2013, this time coming runner-up in the Best Modern Design category for her ‘Zanzibar’ design. Zanzibar was inspired by the time Jenny spent in Africa living with her family where they spent time enjoying the wildlife of the national parks. Knowing ‘skins’ was an emerging trend she wanted to create something mysterious and elegant. The design features a palm outline overlaying a skin pattern.
