Sonya Winner creates exceptional rugs that are graphic, vibrant and highly original. Her first rug, The Kaleidoscope, caused a sensation when it first went on sale at The Aram Store in 2006, and was promptly shortlisted for an Elle Decoration award. It has been a favourite with discerning buyers, stylists and celebrities ever since.
Described by style bible Wallpaper* magazine as ‘Matisse like’, Sonya’s rugs showcase her rare talent for colour blending. Her design process involves layering colours and textures by hand to create something truly unique, that her many fans consider to be as much works of art as rugs and wall hangings. The quality of her pieces ensures that they will be enjoyed by many generations to come.
Sonya designs and creates the rugs in her Hampstead studio, working on a number of designs each year, in addition to limited edition series, and bespoke commissions.
In 2011 Sonya created the After Matisse rug inspired by Henri Matisse's 'Snail' cut outs. This rug has been featured internationally in the press and online. This rug is now available to buy.
