Brintons unveils latest in-house design collection, The Parlour

Brintons unveils latest in-house design collection, The Parlour

Britons has announced its latest axminster design collection inspired by collaboration and communal creative spaces, The Parlor.

Born from a drawing game Surrealist artists played to pass time and unlock the true creative essence of the unconscious, The Parloris a collection of one of a kind axminster designs with surprising linear transitions.

Glowing neon hues contrast with moody velvet textures calling us to our local watering holes and reminding us of the intimate social spaces occupied by literature + art’s greats.Inspired by a space defined by community, The Parlorhinges on successful collaboration and exists as a conduit for unapologetic creation.

Woven in Brintons signature 80 per cent wool, 20 per cent nylon yarn blend, designs from the collection will be fully customisable to suit the parameters of any flooring project. Following the rules of an age-old artist’s game called the Exquisite Corpse, Brintons designers joined forces to produce unique hand drawn works of art. Each designer was tasked with completing a quarter of a drawing and shipping it to the next player in the game.

Las Vegas based Brintons designer, Sam Hoeffer comments on the process: “It was reminiscent of art projects we used to do in college which served as a nostalgic reminder that no matter wherewe are in our creative careers, we’re all still students of art.”

The next player is tasked with continuing the previous designer’s work by only exposing a half inch of the drawing. The game leaves us with unexpected transitions between each drawing as the result of creatives expressing themselves while also leaning into collaboration. Likening the development process behind The Parlorto a manufacturer’s rolein the interior design industry, Hoeffer explains: “Sometimes we forget that our carpet is a humblecomponent of a larger project.It is important to be mindful of how the carpet has to relate to the architecture,light fixtures, furniture, fabrics, etc. It’s like the Exquisite Corpse idea in that we arecreating one smaller piece among other unknown smaller pieces. All ofthose things come together as one whole cohesiveentity.”

The inky illustrations traveled across North and South America, finally making their way back to the home office in Atlanta, GA where they were photographed. The digital files were then distributed to different groups of designers to be translated into woven axminster carpet.

Four symbiotic drawings and twelve one of a kind woven axminster carpets are the collateral of a collaborative exercise leaving us to question the rules of line + colour.

Committed to the concept of thinking globally and acting locally, Brintons has design studios, offices and agents in all of the major markets around the world.Brintons Carpets product portfolio includes premium woven axminster and wilton broadloom carpets, carpet tiles, machine-made rugs and hand-tufted rugs.

Wilton Carpets’ Ethereal collection heads to The Imperial Banqueting Suite

Wilton Carpets has expanded into the wedding venue Preston’s Imperial Banqueting Suite…

The Ethereal collection of wool-rich woven axminster by Wilton Carpets has inspired a new floor for the mezzanine at Preston’s Imperial Banqueting Suite, a new wedding venue inspired by Dubai’s luxury hotels.

The space, which is capable of accommodating up to 950 guests, boasts fascinating interiors that includes geometric Islamic art throughout in bespoke fret work, brass lanterns and gilded brass reception area bars, which was designed by Petal Interiors.

“As soon as I saw the Ethereal collection from Wilton Carpets, I was adamant that it would take a role in one of my projects,” said Nita Patel, creative designer.

“The mezzanine level at the Imperial proved the perfect canvas, capturing the beauty of design in full. Fortunately, as soon as I presented it on mood boards for the scheme, the client loved it too.”

Having decided on Ethereal, Patel worked with Wilton’s design team, led by the creator of Ethereal, Damian Roscoe, to recolour her chosen design. “The right colours were crucial in ensuring we could get the correct balance and capture every detail of the stunning pattern. Wilton’s designers were amazing in helping me to achieve this, while also working within the confines of the interior scheme,” added Patel.

Once the colourway had been chosen, the next stage saw the development of the bespoke carpets that was used on the stairs, landing areas and rooms. Since the stairs required safety treads, clarity was a clear requirement for the company.

Patel continued: “A heavy pattern would have made stair treads hard to see, so this design was more about texture and colour. Using the same palette created for the main carpet helped to create flow, yet also allowed me to define specific tasks – blue for the stairs and landings, and a taupe for the immediate adjoining rooms.”

Woven by Wilton Carpets from British wool in a performance 80/20 blend, the carpets provide the ideal combination for wear-resistance, ease of maintenance and value.
