Last night Alex Perry said: “I wanted to pay homage to my Greek heritage striving to create something timeless and striking. Each Design tells a different story, revealing a distinct aspect of Greece and myself.” Yosi Tal, Managing Director of Designer Rugsintroduced Ales and said he has “a certain Jois de vivre and approach to life that is incredibly positive and this reflects in his design ethos. We are very excited to collaborate with another of Australia’s leading designers. His rugs are true to his Greek ancestry and bring a fresh wave of colour to the Designer Rugs collections.”
