“Since moving to Harlem, I have seen the pond on 110th through every season. These rugs though, timeless, are a reflection of that change.” – Brett Beldock
About the Rugs: Susan Izsak the creative director at DLB is by far the best colorist Beldock has ever worked with and has extensive knowledge of yarns and textures. Together, Brett and Susan developed a whimsical line of new rugs for DLB. Susan Izsak has worked with Beldock to make her rugs diverse in quality and texture ” ?.” Starting off as a knitwear designer, my view of mixing yarns, texture, and color is like painting, you get so much depth and dimension. Yarns are yarns be they made into sweaters in Taiwan or a flat weave rug from Nepal.” The collection is based on images of water, the way it moves, water with reflections, water as it pulls away from sand, light hitting water creating captivating colors and patterns. Each rug is also based on a different image, some taken with Beldock’s cellphone, and a few images are of water on Beldock’s wind shield, taken while going through a car wash in the Bronx.
