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.
