House Of Heras is a boutique design studio led by award winning designer Silvana Azzi Heras, who specialises in highly decorative designs applied to a variety of textiles including wallpapers and fabric. With 17 years as the Head Designer for Baz Luhrmann and Catherine Martin, Silvana’s work on films such as The Great Gatsby, Moulin Rouge and more has been widely recognized. Her time on these award-winning projects have contributed greatly to her sense of style and colour sophistication.
Last week I joined in the sumptuous celebration at Seasonal Concepts, showcasing the House Of Heras in a opulent setting launching their stunning rug collaboration with Designer Rugs.
The debut rug collection from House Of Heras focuses on Australian flora and fauna as seen through the lens of the Arts and Crafts movement, and is also influenced by the work of Lucien Henry and Josef Frank. These intricate and beautiful designs sprung from the desire to create interiors that are high end and opulent, yet give the simple comforting pleasure of being at home surrounded by wonderful things.
“I’ve always been inspired to create homewares that I would want in my home, or my friends’ homes, and that can inspire a mood or start a conversation says Heras. If you’re a lover of beautiful things then a House Of Heras rug will always be at home in your space”
Consisting of three rectangular rugs, one round rug and one epic hall runner, the collection is heavily focused on Australian native plants and animals. Hand tufted in New Zealand wool with highlights of shimmering bamboo silk, these luxurious rugs would feel at home in an ultra-modern beachside home to a Victorian Terrace in the heart of the city, to anything in between. All five designs can be custom sized, shaped and coloured to suit any interior.
