The first patented machine-washable rug brand, Ruggable, has partnered with model, illustrator and artist, Monica Ahanonu, on a floor covering collection that features her signature bold, vibrant and unapologetic style. Proving that it’s okay to color outside the lines, each of Ahanonu’s eight indoor/outdoor rug designs feature bright colors and geometric patterns bringing optimism and energy to any living space. The creative is breaking the mold of traditional home decoration with this first foray into the home design space. The Ruggable X Monica Ahanonu collection goes on sale June 23 with prices starting at $109.
“The inspiration for my collection with Ruggable came from the details all around me in nature and from thinking about how color in a space can affect people’s energy throughout the day,” says Ahanonu. “This ties into my existing work as I am always playing around with colors and shapes, even when doing portrait pieces or illustrations with characters, there is still a large focus on the colors and shape language in each piece. I truly believe that color and light affect your mood and how you go about your day and I hope our rug collection brings happiness.” To celebrate the collaboration, Ruggable will be making a donation to Project Glimmer, a nonprofit on a mission to build self-confidence in adolescent girls and inspire entrepreneurship.
