Mist is a new flooring collection that draws inspiration from “komorebi” – the Japanese word that refers to the effect of dappled sunlight as it filters through the trees. This new collection transforms the experience of space in subtle, nuanced ways, bringing moments of calm to busy environments and elevating hallways. These elegant, statement rugs are an understated luxury that capture the imagination with a design evoking translucent beauty.

All designs used in the final collection were derived from original artwork created by the design team, using photography and hand-coloured watercolour sketches. These designs evoke an atmosphere of quiet discovery and a sophisticated mystique that enhances the environment around it. With shared values and a passion for innovative and purposeful design, the teams worked seamlessly to produce a collection that is both unique and versatile.
Mist transforms the experience of an environment in nuanced ways. Through poetic and rhythmic movement of multiple layers, Mist evokes a subtle moment of design inspiration, that comes to life in each of the final pieces. Delighting the senses, Mist captures the imagination with its unique visual translations of “komorebi” beauty.
Mist’s patterns reveal themselves in slow reflective waves, a meandering of light and shadow with delicately drawn lines. Thoughtful brushstrokes act as windows of light into the layers of each design, unveiling a unique textile beauty. Each carpet has a continuous aesthetic that is perfectly engineered to make the the surface appear as if it were a watercolor painting, a re-imagining of the floor as a work of art. Utilizing the manufacturer’s dye-injection technology, which allows for endless ink colours to be applied simultaneously, Mist is offered in a total of 18 captivating patterns with an unlimited selection of customizable color-way options – a true elevation of modern statement rugs.
