For their new collection of modern, geometric-patterned rugs, Cold Picnic went small. The brand showed off their “Delicate Matters” line in miniature-form inside a diorama modeled after the “subdued glamour” of the 1980 Richard Gere-led film “American Gigolo.”

Delicate Matters features the debut of Cold Picnic’s new New Zealand-sourced wool, which takes dye color with more vibrancy and sheds less than traditional hand-tufted wool rugs. 

“We envisioned the American Gigolo diorama house as a place of excess,” Cold Picnic wrote in a statement for their lookbook. “If something wasn’t silver, it should be gold. If it wasn’t velvet, it would be fur. Enormous paintings in gilt frames of bored people on the walls—rugs on the wall too—and a glass bottomed conservatory patio.”

Here, you can see the “Delicate Matters” rug on said glass-bottomed conservatory patio. Each rug in the collection is available in three sizes (not including the mini diorama size).

And here, “Je m’appelle Julian” is the centerpiece in a white marble living room with a shearling couch and loveseat. 

Cold Picnic is no stranger to creating dioramas for their textile collections, and have been doing so since 2017. Though, needless to say, the dioramas have come quite a long way in the three years Cold Picnic has been assembling them.

And now that it’s difficult to pull people together for a styling shoot, Cold Picnic could be pioneering a novel way to show off new interior decor lines. Plus, you must admit—these dioramas are also just adorable.
