Watson Soule - Janna Watson & Nico Soule
By Gregory Furgala

Walk barefoot along the Stria carpet, and you’ll literally feel each hue. Hand-tufted, caramel-coloured New Zealand wool steps down to bright coral carved cotton, then further still to pool blue wool. The back-and-forth of material and pigment plays along the length of the rug. Watson Soule translates the texture of canvas-bound paintings into functional art. Rugs are the natural outlet for the pair’s vision and talents: Janna Watson’s bold abstracts provide the inspiration, and Nico Soule’s knack for upholstery renders flat paint into lush fibre.
