Iconic designer Greg Natale is known for creating bold and beautiful interiors. I’m sure he could probably do it with both eyes closed and one hand tied behind his back (that’s a reality show waiting to happen). On the blog today, I’m giving you the lowdown on the new sleek and sophisticated Greg Natale carpet collection, which is only going to further cement his position as one of the country’s go-to men of design!
Geometric patterns and chic monochromes are the main design elements in this collection – designed exclusively for Designer Rugs. Greg’s inspiration for the range, which truly makes your floor the star of your interior, came from his global travels.
“I’m fascinated by the lines, angles and patterns on structures around me,” Greg says. “And will inevitably take a photo – I can’t help myself!”
One of his carpets, Emilio, was inspired by his time in London.
“Emilio was inspired by the design of a gate I came across at the V&A Museum… while the pressed metal details on the exterior of an art deco building I saw in Madison Avenue, New York, led to the creation of Yves,” he says.
Subdued in colour but bold and art-deco inspired in their design, the range is a new venture for Designer Rugs, who have in the past – as their name suggests – only produced rugs.

“Working with carpets was a natural progression for us and we previously worked on a project with Greg that required Axeminister Carpet,” says Yosi Tal, the managing director of Design Rugs. “That project went so well that we decided to create our own carpet collection with him which we absolutely love”.
It’s been five years since Greg designed his rugs with Designer Rugs. This new range of carpet represents a natural, next step for the two design power houses.
“It’s been a thrill to create my first carpet collection,” Greg explains. “I approach designing rugs and carpets in the same way, with the creative possibilities of the bigger picture in mind. And I believe a room that begins with a rug or carpet has taken the first step towards becoming a warm, inviting and liveable space.”
