Giving the world just what it needs—The Rug Company and designer Ken Fulk deliver some much-needed Divine Inspiration in their new collaboration.
What do you get when an esteemed British heritage rug brand collabs with a wild West Coast designer known for his double-take interiors? Magic, of course! That magic materialized when The Rug Company teamed up with Ken Fulk for debut collection, Divine Inspiration. Affectionately referred to as the magic factory, creating enchanting spaces and richly layered interiors is second nature for San Francisco and New York-based interior designer Ken Fulk. And his stunning rug collection follows form.
“This collection was inspired by our shared search for meaning—through art, music, nature, and reflection. These rugs weren’t designed to simply look beautiful, but to facilitate meaningful conversations.”-Ken Fulk
Intended for residential and commercial spaces, each design is fully customizable and available in a vast range of qualities, colors, and materials. The collection can also be created as wall-to-wall installations and stair runners, depending on the client’s wants and wishes. Taking inspiration from Fulk’s enchanting portfolio, Divine Inspiration is showcased in five distinct projects along the California coastline and each design transports you into an otherworldly realm. Amplifying the many rituals created to celebrate the joy of life through reflection, storytelling, imagination, music, nature, and congregating with a shared intention, Divine Intervention is just that—a gentle reminder of the beauty all around us.
