La Manufacture Cogolin presents Nord/Sud, a very personal collection that is above all an invitation to voyage through Stéphane Parmentier’s souvenirs, from his native Nice to his adopted home, Paris. Stéphane Parmentier has designed a line of five rugs and two runners available in three standard sizes – as well as in custom dimensions – they are made from the finest wool, flax and silk, hand-knotted over a sumac backing. The patterns are inspired by the artwork of Roger Capron and the Vallauris artisans as well as by the traditional paving stones found throughout France. Indeed, the collection is a tribute to the tradition of renowned southern French craftmanship epitomized by La Manufacture Cogolin.
Available in a colour palette ranging from the pastels of Provence such as Rosé or Nougat to the more urban colours of Asphalt or Granit, Nord/Sud rugs create unique atmospheres. “Depending on the colours, you are transported either to a picturesque Provençal square or to a busy Parisian street” adds Stéphane Parmentier.
