An American in Paris: A New Collection for Beni Rugs by Colin King

Is NYC-based designer and stylist Colin King taking over the world (the design world, at least)? We’re currently admiring his new line of rugs for Beni Rugs, especially as displayed in the artist Andre Saraiva’s modernist apartment in a 17th-century building on the Places des Vosges in Paris. “The 11-piece collection, called  A Study on Balance, features simple geometric forms, and explores the intersection between Japanese aesthetics, principles, and craft on French art, architecture, and design,” as King says on his website.
