This unique rug was inspired by the glazed ceramic vessles that Rockwell and his daughter, Lola, decorated in the Montreal studio of ceramic artist Pascale Girardin.
Girardin used this same brushstroke approach to create hand-thrown sake vessels for Rockwell Group’s new Nobu Downtown restaurant in Lower Manhattan. The rug composition expresses the same spontaneous movement and flow of brushstrokes that appear on the vessels.
Woven from bamboo silk, Moonlight Tidal is a new take on the original Tidal rug, with its painterly and rich expression of natural light and its shimmering reflection across the surface of a bay, rendered in cool and warm greys.

Misty uses bamboo silk to depict a deep, rich indigo blue ombré motif that fades to white at its edges. Representing a synergy of design and craft, the subdued, yet enigmatic design accentuates the architect’s passion for nature.
“My rugs display modern, abstracted patterns of their respective square and oval shapes, with varying pile heights for a richer, more dynamic texture.” – David Rockwell
