Esti Barnes has designed two new collections of runners that are typically boundary-pushing in their approach. Called Go-Go and Footloose the ranges are as lively as their names suggests, with asymmetrical designs that take advantage of the runners’ linear form, drawing the eye with flowing repeat patterns. Footloose runners are hand-tufted, and include the scallop-edged ‘Twist’ (pictured bottom). Creative inspiration for Go-Go includes a lacy dragonfly’s wing (‘Dragonfly’, pictured top), a tangled spider’s web, and painterly brushstrokes. Any of them would breathe new life into an older property, or add flair to a retail, hospitality, aviation or marine project.
