To check out high-quality artworks, there’s no need to visit a museum; all it takes is a stay at the right hotel. Designers are looking to source more intriguing, beautiful and considered pieces for their design schemes, and we’ve rounded up some of the best companies that are animating interiors and bridging the gap between art and hotels.

Jaipur Rugs x Hiren Patel

Jaipur Rugs and architect Hiren Patel have collaborated to create a collection of contemporary rugs, Reminiscence, that reflect on personal stories of travel, new learnings and uncanny experiences, all reflected in a series of paintings created by Patel. These artworks have then been transformed into handwoven rugs that offer a different perspective to the designs with their texture and weave. With this collection, the experiences and stories collected from around the world have taken on a more dynamic life-sized approach and ceased to be static and two-dimensional. The rugs hold together a moment in time, frozen in their yarns, and together, Patel and Jaipur Rugs captivate imagination and conjure up feelings of nostalgia for deeply cherished moments.
