The connections between the Cadry family and the flamboyant Florence Broadhurst date back to the 60’s when Florence would stroll down the street from her Paddington studio to chat with the rug company’s founder, Jacques Cadry.
Four decades later this connection has been rekindled through the collaboration of Cadrys and Signature Prints, the custodians of the Florence Broadhurst design library. ‘Family business’ takes on a whole new meaning when it comes to the Cadrys. It appears everyone from this large family is woven, in some way or other, into the business of rugs.
Together with over 400 guests, the family heralded the launch of a collection of rugs using Florence’s designs. Examples of this new range were fittingly hung like paintings around the Cadry showroom. These newly created floor coverings are to die for. The idea of walking all over these stunning works of art seems abhorrent but we are assured that with the use of the finest of materials sourced from all over the world they will remain a thing of beauty and pleasure for many, many years.
What an added treat too for guests to be served some fantastic food, cooked on-site by Serif Kaya the chef-owner of Sydney’s outstanding modern Turkish restaurant, Ottoman Cuisine.
It was one of those signature events where you get a real buzz amongst the crowd as they enjoyed the opportunity to celebrate a new product of significant design in a great party atmosphere. Congratulations also to the Hush Communications team for the event organization.
