Dark Moon I

Nakashima Edition
Edward Fields
“Dark Moon” was designed in 1959 and manufactured the same year by Edward Fields. This rug shows a view of an evening sky with clouds and a moon in the background; it was originally crafted in wool, in 5’11” x 6’11” size, in a high cut and loop pile construction. The rug is still displayed in Nakashima’s house in New Hope Pennsylvania, which helped the Edward Fields design team to develop a replica in its original colors and construction (Dark Moon I) as well as a new version in 8’ x 10’ size in all-natural undyed wools under Mira Nakashima’s creative lead, Dark Moon II. All designs in this edition are expertly tufted by skilled artisans.

George Nakashima was trained in architecture then turned to furniture-making, and he was first to make woodworking a fine art. He collaborated with Edward Fields in late 1950s by creating a series of drawings to be translated into rugs that resulted in two pieces in 1959. These rugs were the start of a new collaboration between Nakashima’s children, Mira and Kevin, and the Edward Fields design team. This amazing team effort brought the collaboration to a new level by interpreting a packet of 60-year-old Nakashima sketches into a new series including six rugs and one tapestry launched in 2015.
