Christopher Farr

Bold choices

Christopher Farr has been at the spearhead of contemporary rug design for over twenty years,
ever since he trained at the Slade School of Art.

Together with his business partner Matthew Bourne, Christopher Farr has been the catalyst that revolutionised contemporary rug design.

With backgrounds that are firmly rooted in antique Oriental carpets and textiles, Farr and Bourne share a passionate knowledge of contemporary art and design that informs the work that is produced to this day.

"I am delighted to have the opportunity to work with a store of the stature of John Lewis and happy that as a result my designs will be available to the wider UK public for the first time." says Farr.

"When I'm designing a rug collection I'm focusing on emotion through colour, shape, proportion and scale. These are the building blocks, and for John Lewis I have given the customer an extensive range of moods to play with."
