CANEVAS GEO Adds Oversized Cross-Stitching to Rugs and Pillows

Belgian designer Charlotte Lancelot collaborated on her third collection with GAN utilizing similar embroidery techniques as her previous collections. CANEVAS GEO gives nod to cross-stitching but at a much larger scale with colorful wool yarns piercing through felt bases. The patterns appear to overlay one another causing the colors to darken or lighten, depending on which “layer” they’re on. The mix of colors and planes, along with the stitching, add texture and depth giving the feeling of looking down from an aerial perspective.

The CANEVAS GEO rug collection forgoes the typical rectangular shape and instead features an asymmetrical perimeter. Multiple rugs can be used together to form a larger, puzzle-like rug and different colors (Coral, Green, or Grey) can be combined to make it even more unique.

To further pull a room’s design together, the rug collection includes matching cushions.
