We were excited to work with interior design duo Jordan Cluroe and Russell Whitehead, AKA the 2 Lovely Gays, to create a custom period inspired carpet for the bedroom, stairs and corridors in their Victorian South London home.
It started with a trip to our archive, which holds patterns from as early as 1790, and 2LG worked with Brintons archivist Yvonne Smith to select a design that fitted the Victorian era of the house. Jordan and Russell have always been fans of decorative and patterned carpet so Brintons was an obvious choice for this collaboration.
The carpet chosen was a Victorian floral design from the Brintons archive, recoloured to fit their contemporary colour scheme and manufactured using the High Definition Weave looms that can weave up to 32 colours at any one time.
We are proud to own one of the world's largest commercial design archives and historical pattern libraries in the industry, restored and preserved by our own dedicated archivist Yvonne Smith. The archive library is a facility unique to Brintons and is an invaluable resource to designers, conservators, decorators and contractors worldwide.
