Year of the Snake by Liesel Plambeck
This rug holds personal importance for designer, Liesel Plambeck, dedicated to her mother and her Taiwanese heritage, the mythology and imagery of a place brought to life in stories. The serpent is an auspicious symbol, and Liesel‚Äôs serpent is particularly charming. At times emerging from wool and at other times arrayed in silk on a wool field. When placed, the skill of the artist is evident as the form of the serpent emerges beneath furnishings, connecting the various elements of a room.
