The 'Crete, Where Sea-Kings Reigned' rug by Brooklyn based design duo Cold Picnic, is a 100% wool yarn hand tufted rug with a woven cotton backing. The warm brown, ultramarine blue and bright yellow colours and shapes are inspired by the Cretian landscape.
Cold Picnic was formed in 2010 by partners Phoebe Sung and Peter Buer, both of whom have backgrounds in Fine Arts and worked in corporate fashion design. Deeply influenced by indigenous crafts, the dusty yet vibrant palettes of 1970s films and the American natural landscape, Cold Picnic explore traditional crafts filtered through modern sensibilities.
