Brown Compton Rug
A beautiful tapestry from the Beth Russell Designers Forum Collection.
Beth Russell has adapted this rich repeating design to needlepoint. In order to give the rug a centre, the design needed to be slightly adjusted and then reversed. The kits are true to the original colours, with three shades blended in the background to retain its soft warm tone. The plain black border serves to frame the intricate design.
