Celebrating 100 years De Stijl with Piet Mondrian and Theo van Doesburg's Artworks as Custom Rugs

 

piet mondrian theo van doesburg de stijl anniversary design idea for custom rugs rug your life

 

There are some artistic eras and styles that catch our eyes and souls more than others. One of our favourite ones is De Stijl, or neoplasticism, a movement that began 100 years ago in The Netherlands.

We want to celebrate the Centenary of De Stijl in the way we know best: by turning an artwork selection by its founder, artist Theo van Doesburg, and one of its main members, Piet Mondrian, into custom rug designs.

We would love to turn any of these artworks (or your personal favourite) into your very own custom handmade rug. As you know, this is what we do at Rug Your Life: create the most wonderful custom rugs with the designs you send us.

The paintings and posters by these two internationally acclaimed artists influenced strongly the art, the architecture and even the fashion of the time. We take great inspiration for our custom rugs designs from Mondrian's and van Doesburg's art as well.

Theo van Doesburg - Simultaneous Counter Composition as handknotted custom rugs

Four coloured squares and a tilted frame floating on a background.

We always like to experiment with colours and present you here with a selection of the options we prepared. We like to respect the original artwork's colours, but sometimes other palettes work better for a certain interior décor and we are absolutely fine with that. It is about finding what works for you and your home.

Here is the original artwork. And here are many of his other artworks.

Theo van Doesburg - Composition XIII (woman in studio) as handknotted custom rugs

Overlapping black lines on a white background. Seemingly simple, but powerful: the best combination.

Which would be the colours of your choice? Would you keep it all in one material, such as linen or wool, or would you add some texture with nettle, hemp or silk for special accents? Contact us anytime with your ideas.

Theo van Doesburg - Archer Heka poster as handknotted custom rugs

The posture, the geometric shapes, the proportions. We love everything about this poster by Theo van Doesburg.

Let us show you what incredible rugs this design would make.

Here is the original drawing.

Theo van Doesburg - Stained Glass Window, Leaded glass as a handknotted custom rug

This could easily be one of the most modern stained glass windows there are. It reminds of a poster or magazine cover.

We particularly like it as a linen handmade custom rug with the black lines in a higher pile, to create an embossed relief that would be very appropriate for a leaded glass.

Here is the original image.

Theo van Doesburg - Composition VIII The Cow painting as a handknotted custom rug

The way the colourful squares are set up in this artwork make me think of a wall full of framed family pictures.

Why not turn it into a handmade rug where you and your family can continue creating memories together?

Here is the original painting.

Theo van Doesburg - Composition VII The Three Graces as a handknotted custom rug

Here you can see the original artwork by van Doesburg.

Piet Mondrian - Broadway Boogie Woogie as handknotted custom rugs

Broadway lights, busy New York streets, an eighties video game and a robot world. These are (some of the) things this Mondrian piece of art reminds us of.

Where would you place this rug? Would you keep the original colours or play with other combinations? This was the original artwork.

We cannot wait to hear from you.

Piet Mondrian - Composition in Color A as handknotted custom rugs

Beautiful pink, orange, blue and black in a cream background. Perfect as these colours are, we always like to show you other options.

As it so happens, this clean and balanced artwork by Piet Mondrian would make an incredible handmade custom rug. Remember that we can make your rug in a variety of materials, such as linen, wool (Tibetan or New Zealand), nettle, hemp, viscose, silk, recycled plastic yarn and even felt balls.

Would you use only one material or a combination? Here is the original artwork.

Piet Mondrian - Composition with Red, Yellow and Blue as a handknotted custom rug

This is probably one of Mondrian's best-known artworks. This is the plastic style that he is most remembered for. Strong primary colours framed by overlapping straight black lines.

With a such solid design, the custom handmade rug we can make from it is nothing short of a statement floor art.

Here is the original artwork.

Piet Mondrian - New York City I as a handknotted custom rug

Straight lines in primary colours creating a map of design. There is something very comforting about a well-made design that does not seek to look overly complicated.

The original artwork can be seen here.

Piet Mondrian - Composition with Grid IX as a handknotted custom rug

These soft blues, pinks, yellows and greys are often not the colours one might imagine in a Mondrian artwork. But clearly no matter which colours he used, he knew how to compose the perfect balance game among them and create attractive designs such as this grid.

Here is the original artwork.

Piet Mondrian - Trafalgar Square as a handknotted custom rug

This artwork leaves more blank space between the lines, which clearly speaks for a square. If you are from London, this might be the rug for you!

Here is the original artwork.

All visualizations here show the edited original pictures and their rendering with actual yarn dyeing colours and with a weaving graph prepared to depict a very realistic visualization of how the rug would actually look like. Fewer or more colours have been chosen, depending on the type of design and to offer varied options. Also, all these rug visualizations would work with the most common rug sizes.
