Clive Christian Rug Collection For Roubini Rugs
How do you translate perfume into rugs? Roubini Rugs has created a new line of luxury rugs based on the design style of the house of Clive Christian. Some of the designs in the line were inspired by precious ingredients from perfumes in his eponymous perfume collection as well as his interior design projects. Clive Christian created unique artwork which in turn Sam Roubini translated and produced in the finest wool and silk.
The rug shown above, the Portrait No. 1 Rug, shows a cherub holding a garland leaning on an architectural ledge. The image was taken from the Toile de Jouey fabrics used within Clive Christian rooms.
Roubini Rugs has a variety of designer rugs for fashionable homes including collections by Fornasetti, Tuleh, Jamie Drake, Karim Rashid, Roberto Cavalli and Missoni.
The No.1 'Diamond' Rug was inspired by the image of the brilliant cut diamond that adorns every bottle of No.1 -The World's Most Expensive Perfume - as a symbol of the rarity of the ingredients within. In this rug, sharp angled hues of gold, green brown and black depict the facets and intensity of a diamond.
The 1872 'Rose de Mai' Rug celebrates the rare bloom use in Clive Christian's perfume 1872. The rug is filled with soft pinks and peach tones strewn over a black background.
The X 'Egyptian Jasmine' Rug represents the jasmine chosen by Cleopatra for her journey to meet Anthony, dousing her ships sails in heady aphrodisiac aroma. The intensity of the white, purple and lavender hues on a black background reflects the potency of Christian's perfume X.
The Clive X, No.1 and 1872 rugs are available in size 12' x 12' ft and the suggested retail price is $24,000. The Clive Portrait No. 1 rug is available in size 9' x 12' and retails for $32,000. Custom sizes can also be specially comissioned.
