SKYLINE BY NIGHT – ARTEXA (VENICE)

Some images of the beautiful outdoor carpet 100% made in Italy realized by Artexa (Venice).
This model designed by Ivano Tosco and produced with Aquafil yarn, represents the landscape profile of one of the most romantic cities in Italy: Venice.
You can see the San Marco Cathedral, the Bell Tower and the rooftops that surround its typical “calli”. The colors chosen for this carpet recall the magic of the night and the shades of the sea.
If painting is often considered a source of inspiration, in this case the designer himself has made this rug a real design work of art.
