Launch Event for On-The-Fringe

Edward Fields Showroom, New York City, November 7, 2018

The 12 hand-tufted rugs in Edward Fields’ new edition On-The-Fringe were the stars of a launch party at the Edward Fields showroom in New York City’s A&D Building on Wednesday, November 7, 2018.

Interior design clients, friends, and Alfie the Dog gathered to celebrate Edward Fields’ 2018 offering.

Inspired by archival sketches, in-house designers Juliana Polastri and Ariana Massouh used color, texture and fiber to create rugs with new relevance. Running throughout the designs is the common “thread” of fringe — embellishing an edge (“Emergence” and “Twilight Haze”), continuing a design outside the frame (“Rebound”), filling out a voided shape (“Monolith”), emphasizing the borders between color fields (“Allegory”).

Be sure to browse the On-The-Fringe page on our website, including the PDF of the brochure, produced by Reyman Studio. Location photography is by Andrew Bordwin, and studio photography is by Matthew Mendenhall.

To get you in the mood, listen to this particularly fringe-worthy soundtrack by Robert Maril.

Event photography is by Kirk Lawrence, and catering was provided by The Party Box.
