angela adams’ Shine Rug Collection Hopes to Make the World Brighter

Today we’re excited to share the latest from angela adams: the SHINE Collection. This new series of area rugs is a timely, thoughtful response to the world around us by the brand’s team. The overarching thought is that artists and designers have the opportunity to transform the world through color, form, texture, and imagery, and the SHINE Collection aims to make it a brighter, more positive place.

Angela Adams, founder of the eponymous brand, shared with us that “our designs have always been a creative response to the times we are living in, taking our cue from the natural world, the raw beauty of human nature, and how we are collectively experiencing the world. Our latest collection explores what makes us shine when the world around us seems to be on a dimmer. How can we turn that light up? When we shine we light up the world – from deep within our hearts we cast a golden light. With our new designs, we set forth to create a shiny glow for your interior world. A place to dream, love, grow, and imagine the world you want to live in.”

angela adams tells the story of the SHINE Collection through a series of curated, shoppable lookbooks – Crush, Grow, and Shine. Here, their team visually expresses through storytelling how we can positively impact the world around us through design. The extensive collection features 39 designs and colorways, each available in a variety of shapes and sizes, giving you a number of ways to do your part. The SHINE Collection also introduces a new Plush construction, featuring luxuriously soft 100% New Zealand wool.
