A VISIT TO HELEN YARDLEY IN LONDON… I recently returned from a trip to London, my second home, where I used to reside and where I’m always inspired by UK designers and artists who rock!
My first visit was with Sarah McNulty of Helen Yardley Contemporary Rug Designs located in Bermondsey, South London. Sarah was kind enough to walk me through the Helen Yardley Collection – gorgeous, bespoke, hand tufted rugs that truly are individual paintings about color, shape and space. “A certain style of painting may more readily be translated into a needlepoint or a printed piece but the “painting”always comes first. What I aim for with these paintings/rugs/wall hangings is to make something that works visually but carries layers of meaning. There must be something more lasting than pure decoration.” Helen Yardley.
The Collection is a highly versatile range of handmade rugs which are readily available in a standard range of size and colors. These rugs can also be customized to suit the specific needs of sizes and colors. These rugs can also be customized to suit the specific needs of the client in terms of size and/or color. www.helenyardley.com.
