    Year in review: Fashion-forward rug designs by Modieus

    2021 has been an exciting year for Modieus, the Australian-based fashion-led carpet and rug company – here’s just a selection of what it launched to the market. Editor Hamish Kilburn writes…

    Since becoming a Hotel Designs Recommended Supplier earlier this year, we have referred to Modieus as many things; ‘rugtrepreneurs’ and ‘pioneers’ are among them. From being specified in new hotels to unveiling breathtaking designs, the brand is quickly establishing itself as a trend-setting supplier.

    From case studies to product launches, Modieus has a lot to celebrate in 2021, and here are our top picks.

    Earlier this year, the sixteen-storey boutique hotel on Market Street became the first Hotel Indigo in Adelaide and the sixth signing for the brand in Australasia, following Hotel Indigo Brisbane Fortitude Valley, Melbourne Docklands, Sydney Central, Melbourne Little Collins Street and Auckland. The boutique hotel rooms pay homage to the legendary festivals of the city and Modieus designed colourful and personality-packed rugs inside the rooms and suites.

    Landers and Rogers 

    The second case study that Hotel Designs published of Modieus was in reference to the leading Australian law firm Landers and Rogers. In this editorial, we established how flooring can be used to create connective workspaces. The Melbourne office combines socially activated spaces for connection and collaboration with quiet work settings for privacy and focus. This contemporary space fosters creativity, whilst providing people with flexibility and adaptability in the way they work.

    In addition, Modieus also supplied the carpets for the guestrooms in the Ace Hotel Sydney.

    NEW PRODUCTS

    Modieus launched three collections during 2021 – cohesive colour palettes and distinctive designs which can be made into broadloom carpets or rugs.

    The Makers Mark rug collection really packed a punch and has been the inspiration for many projects Modieus has worked on this year. Incorporating nine encapsulating art stories – from colour blurs to graffiti and stylised monochromatic graphic effects, this unique collection of rug designs belonged in an art gallery.

    Launched in Spring, the Lifestyle Living collection by Modieus is structured around five easy to use colour palettes which appeal to  a broad spectrum of sectors from boutique hotels to beautiful retirement living residences.

    Modieus is currently promoting its Revive Collection. Four neutral colour palettes with a contemporary twist – each is distinctively different. Cool greys, stonewashed denim blues and teals sit alongside rusts, terracotta and dusty pinks with a touch of intense black highlights to add drama.

    Earlier this year, Hotel Designs was the first to report the 2021 Embracing Nature trends by Modieus. The four trends: Grounded, Green Utopia, Textured Layers and Crafted reflected our need for freedom from isolation; it embraced nature, craved simplicity, and inspired meaningful moments of peace. It was spot on and has proved to be the inspiration for so many projects this year.

    Modieus is currently working on their 2022 trends and will share them shortly.

    Modieus is one of our Recommended Suppliers and regularly features in our Supplier News section of the website. If you are interested in becoming one of our Recommended Suppliers, please email Katy Phillips.
