Like anything Mary McDonald touches, her latest collection of abaca rugs for Patterson Flynn is pure design joy. The patterns are rooted in tradition yet exude her trademark theatricality and a new old-school glamour that’s at once luxe and livable. Starting with classic Napoleonic designs, she uses scale and color to turn up the drama of geometrics while taming it with natural abaca. It’s a graphic, statement-making play on material and classic ornamentation that gets flamboyant just right.
