DALLAS, Nov. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Perennials Fabrics®, a leader in the international design industry and the preeminent provider of luxury performance textiles and accessories, has announced the debut of The Art of Glankoff collection, a new line of Tibetan knot rugs. Translated from the original works of abstract artist, Sam Glankoff, the rugs stand as works of art in their own right. The Art of Glankoff collection reflects the beauty of the artist's innovative designs with all of the benefits of using Perennials' high-quality solution-dyed acrylic yarns. Inspired by Glankoff's bold brushstrokes, primordial symbols and richly complex surfaces, Perennials has brought the artist's innovations to the forefront with this new line of luxury performance rugs. Perennials carefully translated the artist's contemporary techniques from paper to the loom, capturing subtle blends from Glankoff's color charts, and intricate surface details, such as seam lines from the original paper panels. In partnership with the Glankoff estate (SGW), Perennials has interpreted four of Glankoff's works into 12 Tibetan knot rug patterns. Rather than craft a rug that simply mimics a Glankoff, Perennials and the SGW carefully isolated three sections within a single artwork and translated them into three unique rugs. From graphic to textural, each rug has its own personality and aesthetic. " Sam Glankoff's unique, unprecedented approach to abstract expressionism certainly earned him a distinct place in the history of modern art," says Ann Sutherland, president of Perennials and Sutherland, LLC. "We wanted to bring his iconic pieces to our rugs in such a way that it emulated artwork that would hang on a gallery wall, with the craftsmanship, performance and tradition of luxury that Perennials fabrics and rugs are known for. These truly are pieces of art made for modern life." Each rug in the initial offering comes in a size, shape and colorway approved by the Glankoff Estate. The Art of Glankoff collection is made from Perennials' 100% solution-dyed acrylic yarns and resist stains, UV light and mildew, making them suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. They are luxurious, soft-to-the-touch and are very easy to maintain and clean.
