Watson Soule is a creative collaboration between artist Janna Watson and designer Nico Soule producing visually expressive floor pieces. Each rug is original and hand tufted from 100% natural fibres in their downtown Toronto studio.
Watson Soule represents the collaborative spirit of bold exuberance and artisan craftsmanship. Balancing an artistic approach with the sensibility of contemporary design, Watson Soule creates beautiful objects that contextualize physical space through dimensions of colour and abstract forms. With a process committed to superior natural materials and ethical production, each rug is hand tufted by the same creative duo that envisions their design. The result is a distinctively modern experience; floorplans are transcended by vibrant colour and playful texture into organic spaces of expression, rebellious but refined, consciously made and uniquely luxurious.
Janna Watson is a young emerging artist renowned for her compelling and evocative abstract compositions; she is represented by Bau-Xi Gallery and her work can be found in several high profile collections across Canada and internationally. Nico Soule is a multifaceted designer with a portfolio that includes lead designer for hospitality venues and designing for a leading management and consulting firm in Shanghai. Together they founded Watson Soule in 2012 and are based out of their studio in Toronto, Canada.
