Olsen + Ormandy are Louise Olsen + Stephen Ormandy, the owners and artistic force behind Dinosaur Designs. Their collection is formed by two creative minds, each drawing from their own inspiration, Louise from nature and Stephen of the subconscious mind, harmoniously transposed into a luxurious Tibetan wool and silk hand knot rug collection.
“I’ve been inspired by the infinite possibilities in nature: seeds sprout, spores spread, plants grow and forests come into existence and continue to develop. Watching this is an endless source of inspiration.”
- Louise Olsen
“My work is born of the subconscious mind. I’m looking for vibration and rhythm, the play of line creating positive and negative space, searching for tonal balance through contrast or harmony, while developing chroma relationships that hug or repel.”
- Stephen Ormandy
