Meet Audrey by Essential Home ❤️
Audrey is not just your ordinary mid-century rug. With a cheerful look, it is a unique approach to mid-century design. Essential Home’s designers went back to the classic color palette and the classic geometric shapes to create a unique round carpet that would be the perfect fit for a mid-century modern living room. Designer Philippe Model must have thought the same. So, when Maison & Objet asked him to create a special closed selection of the best furnishing items from the brands that will be exhibiting in the upcoming January, there was no doubt Audrey by Essential Home had the be one of the items.
With a color block of some of the most famous mid-century colors, Audrey brings us back the joyful patterns that made the 1950s and 60s.
Audrey was on display during this September’s edition of Maison et Objet, and it showed everyone how it can be used as a statement piece for a mid-century living room. There are literally thousands of interior design ideas we can think of where this rug takes all the credits. You can also use it to create a fun twist with a minimal interior decor and more sober colors in the background.

Audrey is a low pile rug that features a very mid-century pattern of colored triangles and other geometrical shapes. It is made using a synthetic fiber called Tencel, and the artisans produce it by using a cut and loop technique. It does sound fancy, right?
The bright vivid colors mix with the abstract geometric pattern to produce an amazingly rich indoor rug.
Finally, in an up-close shot, you can even see the cut loop technique that was used in the manufacture of this mid-century modern rug.
