The core essentials of a home can be counted on one hand: finding comfort, relaxation and objects that transmit joy within it. It should be made up of spaces that you feel comfortable in, that shine on their own, and that communicate life through colors and finishes that help to create inspiring atmospheres.
As a result, GAN rugs, accessories and spaces take centre stage and create an atmosphere of calm, which results from the care put into their craftsmanship and the authenticity of natural materials used. A series of key characteristics make them essential pieces for any interior space, including their capacity for thermal insulation, as their fibres help to regulate the room temperature; acoustic insulation, something increasingly valued given the frenetic pace of life nowadays; flexibility of style and colour, of which there have never been so many options thanks to the GAN CUSTOM personalisation programme; and, of course, their characteristic contemporary design based on traditional hand-making. They are rug and textile space designs that suit all types of living rooms, bedrooms, porches and terraces, yet never overpower them.
Colour for bright homes
Given how extensive GAN‘s catalogue is, you will find rugs capable of adapting to any type of environment. This applies to the RODAS kilim, designed by the GAN team. It is a simple and elegant rug made of the naturally-strong jute, and is completely versatile owing to its universal pattern and the fact that it is reversible. It integrates perfectly into the interior space designed by architect Ligia Casanova, where the colour blue dominates every corner of a living room bathed in the beautiful light of Lisbon.
Finishes and materials as examples of quality
The MIRAGE rug is one of Patricia Urquiola‘s most acclaimed creations for GAN. Combining gradients of colour with geometric shapes, it is made from 100% pure New Zealand wool. It is a spectacular piece, with such clear graphic details that it looks like it has been printed; it is woven by expert artisans using the hand-knotted technique, and steals the show in any indoor space, as in the case of this art enthusiast’s attic in Ukraine.
Cosy Mediterranean atmospheres
Designer Charlotte Lancelot conveys her love of needlepoint through each of her creations. With CHADDAR, she takes the daring decision to embroider wool, which creates a material evocative of warm landscapes; this brings extra texture and warmth into the home. It is the perfect creation for Mediterranean-style interiors where you can take life slowly, such as the lounge-terrace of the penthouse of Bicubic Arquitectura e Interiorismo in Ontinyent.
Blurring the lines between interior and exterior with versatility and comfort
The architect and designer Patricia Urquiola has made the usual separation between indoors and outdoors non-existent. Her mastery of colour, texture and shape in all her creations makes her furniture an example of versatility and adaptability, perfect for transferring the comfort of living rooms to terraces. The GARDEN LAYERS collection, which was inspired by Mughul culture, is a real innovative achievement from GAN and which looks wonderful placed on the terraces of two of Bicubic Arquitectura e Interiorismo’s homes in Ontinyent.
A neutral palette which shines the spotlight on rich textures
Wool is one of the most famous and traditional materials in carpet making. Natural, recyclable and obtained without animal cruelty, it is also an excellent thermal and acoustic insulator. A safe, comfortable and non-slip surface that covers the floor we walk on and benefits our daily life. Highlighting its multiple qualities is one of the virtues of the design of MANGAS by Patricia Urquiola, a collection of rugs, modules, poufs and cushions made with the hand loom technique and in which texture is the true protagonist. Perfect for such cosy atmospheres as the one designed by Ligia Casanova in Portugal.
Personality and signature design
Through the design of the BANDAS series, Patricia Urquiola and GAN make a special tribute to the interlinking of fantasy with the mastery of hand-making traditions, through bringing together handloom techniques, embroidery and crochet to create a surprising rug that conveys both personality and practical skill. Its impactful personality is meticulously surrounded by design classics in the living room of a cosy and functional flat in Helsinki.
Functionality and movement: Dynamic spaces
The PLY collection is a design by MUT Design studio, characterised by their unconventional approach and their artistic ability, which allows them to fit perfectly into the GAN family. Inspired by the fantastic world of Alice in Wonderland, PLY is an invitation “to fall down the rabbit hole in search of the white rabbit”, through its hypnotic patterns. It is a carpet that brings energy to environments, and it contrasts rounded furniture well through its textures which wrap around each other. Architect Raúl Sánchez has displayed it well in one of his exclusive housing projects.
Therefore, the depth of the GAN catalogue is the perfect tool with which you can find ultimate peace and comfort in homes of all types.
