I figure floor coverings ought to sit discreetly and make everything else in the room look wonder-ful,' says the rug architect Sandy Jones.

Seven of Sandy's perky, shading blocked works, mirroring her 27-year vocation, have been recreated for Sandy Jones: Stepping into the Light.Having demonstrated for Mary Quant in her childhood and later filled in as an outfit creator, Sandy went to materials in the mid Nineties. She ended up energetic about African and Asian models – thanks to a limited extent to her inside planner spouse, Chester Jones – and selected on a materials and weaving course at London College of Fashion. She began making floor coverings when a customer of her better half's recommended that two or three compositions in Chester's office would give superb motivation to a rug. 'I made eight for him,' reviews Sandy.Since at that point, she has made floor coverings for inside architects, including Hugh Leslie, and took a shot at lofty activities, for example, a 12 x 12-meter carpet for Claridge's. The floor coverings in this presentation, made in a joint effort with the exhibition's proprietor, Shahbaz Afridi, are made in Turkey from hand-colored, hand-spun fleece.
