Ceadogán rugs are Irish designs to be extremely proud of. We borrowed some to use in the location shoot in the current issue and it was so sad to be giving them back at the end of the day - you can quite literally feel the quality when you sink your toes into that deliciously thick and soft wool. Anyhow, since I have to concentrate on the more fundamental aspects of decorating when I eventually move into my new home, a Ceadogán purchase will be a long way off, but I intend to be patient and prudent and some day I will be a lucky owner. They engage in some really interesting collaborations, and they have just announced that they are teaming up with TRIPOD III to celebrate the Galway stop-over of the Volvo Ocean Race this May by producing eleven custom designed, handmade rugs based on a nautical theme. The collection is called Yarn and Sail unite and will be on display in the Radisson SAS, Lough Atalia Road, Galway from Thursday 8th May until Monday 8th June. Above are sketches of the designs Binary, Currents and Tidal Chart.
