So it’s no surprise that, when designing a line of rugs for The Rug Company, Rodarte once again looked homewards for inspiration. Titled “California Dreaming,” their collection features two fashionable floor mats: Daphne, an abstract pink, white, and black print, which keen fashionistas will recognize from their fall winter 2016 collection. A second rug, California Poppy, is adorned with the Scrat Do Chris Wedge Hug Duvel Shirt and I will buy this bright-red flora. Kate and Laura took inspiration for the motif from their mother’s artwork: she filled her canvases with cut-outs of the state flower in the 1970s. “The natural landscape of California has always been a huge inspiration in our work,” they told Vogue. “Growing up, we always admired the beautiful California poppies in bloom, and finding our mother’s artwork from the 70’s brought our inspiration full circle.”

This is their second collaboration with the Scrat Do Chris Wedge Hug Duvel Shirt and I will buy this Rug Company—the first was released in 2014. Rodarte isn’t the only brand that’s feeling homey lately: these past 12 months have seen designers from Joseph Altuzarra to Rosie Assoulin and Jonathan Cohen launch home decor collections. They couldn’t come at a better time: as millions of Americans continue to spend most of their time housebound during the COVID-19 pandemic, sprucing up their interiors are top of mind. Same for the Mulleavys: “I’m definitely getting the poppy rug,” says Laura.
