Makers & Shakers 25 Irish Designers To Know NowBack
Luke's journey to rug designer was featured in this month's House & Home Ireland. The piece looks at 25 Irish born designers.
The intro to Luke Irwin reads...
"It was a lunch chat with a 13-year-old half Tibetan boy that set Dublin-born, London-based Luke Irwin on the path to rug design and a debut collection based on crop circles. Now 18 years in business and the client list for his hand-knotted, custom designs (ethically produced in India, Nepal, Pakistan and Afghanistan) reads like a who’s who of famous faces, including Prince Charles and Barrack Obama. “I love designing rugs, you can really indulge your whimsy.” His current Mosaic Collection is his most famous to date, inspired by the discovery of a 2,000-year-old Roman mosaic in the garden of his Wiltshire farmhouse."
