Des Fleurs et des Fleurs
Des fleurs & Des fleurs , DIURNE’s new collection, associates a delicate graphic design with soft and fresh colors like a new spring. These sceneries were born from the pencil, naturally and we replicated them on rugs as only Diurne can do, by finding in the weaving the particular rhythm of the hand.For more information

The Cosmati collection is a tribute to the Italian mosaic artists and their way of laying bright and precious tiles on a bed of matt, and rough cement. The series transposes these effects, silk for the precious and luminous and a matt wool for the "bed" that hosts them.For more information
This contemporary collection imagined by the studio Diurne is a tribute to simplicity: few colors, light lines, refined sceneries that honour fabrics and techniques. A minimalism that allows fabrics to be discovered in all their richness and subtlety. All in discretion, these rugs carry within them the refinement of the great craftsmanship to bring the essence of each piece.For more information
The creation of this series integrates the practice of "zen" which is characterized by the artist's unintentionality. An approach that gives this composition of "Lignes Fluides" a meditative nature and an autonomous dynamic. In a state of reverie, the mind floats and loses itself, while the hand subtly takes over and surrenders to a random combination of points: a preliminary step to the development of the variation of curves and harmonies that emerge.For more information
Marcel Zelmanovitch's rugs regularly feature in the most prestigious settings of renowned interior designers and of connoisseurs. The designer develops his work around the concept of rug-paintings : an artwork edited into a unique piece.
Signature Series is part of the Galerie Diurne’s approach to the rug craftsmanship: to create, to be inspired by Decorative Arts, to bring artists to the rug field. Signature Series is conceived as a series of meetings between the rug editor and a designer. The different universes intertwine to propose new textile interpretations from a set of original pictorial works.
The DIURNE collections were initially the desire of the painter Marcel Zelmanovitch to see his creations come to life in another form using fabric and tibetan craftmanship. The DIURNE collections are also a « voyage » thought the past, exploring the trends that inspired the most beautiful interiors: DIURNE Contemporary offers a series of collections, playing on shapes, colors and textures in a modern and elegant style.
The classic collections are created by the designers of the Diurne studio under the direction of Marcel Zelmanovitch. They revisit the great movements in the history of decorative arts, in the world of rugs or in others, and embrace traditional patterns to create unique designs. They demonstrate the know-how and culture of Maison Diurne, which has been working for more than 40 years on both contemporary and classical projects
Galerie Diurne presents Marcel Zelmanovitch's collections , the founder of the gallery, as well as showcasing individual designs created by artists for their own Signature Collections. In addition, for the last 35 years the gallery’s own studio continues to produce both classic and contemporary designs, as well as original ideas from their partners. Designing rugs of excellence requires the mastery of great craftsmanship and is the result of high-quality materials produced by hand. As in the workshops of the Italian Renaissance, a myriad of artisans still support each artist in the choice of appropriate dyes and materials' selection, later enhanced by the agility of our weavers and the precision of our carvers. This is the mastery that Galerie Diurne puts at the disposal of artists to help their vision become a reality. For Galerie Diurne, its "raison d’être" is to evolve and develop its expertise in its specific world of art; and to have the knowledge to understand an interior design project in order to integrate an unique work of art, and potentially enhance ideas, drawings or pieces of artistic research into creating a living space. Galerie Diurne draws on its culture to produce a vision of well-being, colour, distinction, and refinement in a way that does not detract from the artist’s original concept. To offer a way of seeing, appreciating and understanding beauty through technique.For more information
