Turn your favourite artwork by international artists into handmade custom rugs with Rug Your Life

 

If you love art and do not want to display it only on the walls or if you wish you could have a world-class museum artwork in your home, here is a great idea: turn your favourite artwork into your new custom rug!

And we will sure not let you miss this opportunity to have beautiful art decorate your home.

As always, here at Rug Your Life we will turn your wish artwork into a handmade custom rug, just for you, and will be happy to change the colours and design elements to fit your interior design style.

Here you will find a selection of public domain drawings by master artists and their visualization as rugs in a variety of colour and material options.

Amedeo Modigliani's drawing Anna Akhmatova as a handknotted custom rug

How powerful can a seamingly simple line be? When your hand is Modigliani's, less is clearly more.

Which would be the two colours of your choice? Would you like it in all wool, like the black and white examples or adding some accents in silk, as in the sepia-coloured example? Contact us anytime with your ideas.

Ernst Ludwig Kirchner's Paar in Bibliothek (Couple in Library) drawing as handmade custom rugs

Clearly we could not decide which colour combination would be the best for this rug, as we like so many. Kirchner's drawing of a couple in a library is as intimate as it is calm.

This was the original artwork we based our custom rug designs on. Here you can see Ernst Ludwig Kirchner's other works.

Odilon Redon's Sleep drawing as a handknotted custom rug

This artwork is as relaxing as its title. It calls for soft colours and a wide frame. Where would you place it? We would choose the master bedroom for this rug.

We love hearing about your ideas.

This is the original drawing by Odilon Redon.

And here are two examples of rug visualizations. In soft blue and sepia shades.

Vincent van Gogh's Sketch of a Woman with a Baby in her Lap as a custom rug

This drafted sketch captures the essence of a mother holding her child. We have transformed it into custom rug visualizations that show only the main lines of the drawing. We can picture it in a beautiful nursery. You will see that the second example shows the design in one single colour and that the drawing lines are woven in silk and cut at a higher pile. This adds a soft elegance to the rug and allows the design to show clearly and discreetly.

The original artwork can be seen here.

If you want to see almost 2,000 of Van Gogh's artworks, visit this page. They can all be used for custom rug designs that we can make for you.

Vajda Lajos Head with House drawing as a custom rug

Our last design for this series of world-class art inspiration was made by Hungarian artist Vajda Lajos in 1937. We find many of his artworks are ideal as rug designs. And this is the original drawing of the one we chose.

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.
