    World-renowned carpet manufacturer Britons has worked in partnership with architects and interior designers Dexter Moren Associates to supply a unique carpet for the prestigious Ampersand Hotel in London.

    Working together, Brintons and Dexter Moren Associates created a dramatic collection of intricately ornate designed carpets to complement the hotel’s quintessential British theme, furnishing the guest rooms, corridors and function rooms, as well as helping to create a striking lobby area to welcome guests to the stunning hotel.

    The Ampersand is set in a stunning Victorian building, which dates back to 1888 in South Kensington, London. It opened in its modern incarnation in 2012 and design inspiration was taken from surrounding attractions such as the V&A, Royal Albert Hall and the museums of Natural History and Science.

    Five themes were explored to create the British inspired décor including botany, music, ornithology, astronomy and geometry. The design team at Brintons were tasked with creating carpets that were in keeping with the British theme, and by taking these initial concept ideas they were able to create the final stunning designs.

    Sarah Draper, Commercial Marketing Manager for Brintons, said: “The interiors throughout the hotel work together to complement each other and provides guests to the Ampersand an inviting place that they want to stay.”

    Brintons’ custom Axminster carpets were installed throughout, and its hand-tufted rugs were laid in the lobby area to create a welcoming first impression to the exquisite hotel.

    Sarah added: “A lobby is the first steps that a guest takes when entering a hotel, so we felt it was important that our hand tufted rugs reflected and introduced visitors to the hotel’s unique style.”
