Brintons celebrates awards win

Celebrating quality, style and innovation, Campaign for Wool’s International Wool Carpet and Rug awards was launched for the first time at this year’s Wool Floor Show in London. Hosted on the 23rd March at Stamford Bridge, the awards included 14 different categories.

We were proud to be awarded the winner of the prestigious Woven Carpet Design Installation of the Year award for our 1930s inspired designs that were created for the renowned Mayfair based restaurant and late night venue, Quaglino’s

Brintons supplied a striking custom carpet featuring geometric designs for the restaurant to compliment the period style of its multimillion pound refurbishment project. The carpet was installed throughout the restaurant and staircase, featuring a dramatic linear pattern to reflect the Art Deco influence of the interiors.

Sarah Draper, Commercial Marketing Manager for Brintons, said: “We are really honoured to have received such a fantastic award from such a renowned industry figure, Campaign for Wool.

“Our range of designers utilise our 230 year old archive to create bespoke creations that truly reflect a commercial interiors specific identity. Working with Quaglino’s to create such a stunning Art Deco design was a fantastic experience and we are delighted for our work to have been recognised with such a prestigious award.”

Our Kensington City Plaids carpet was also a finalist for the Residential carpet of the year and Padstow Pebble Houndstooth a finalist for the Country Homes and Interiors Award which considered best use of texture and pattern for the modern country home.

Our new 'Crafting the Yarn' video explores the process of blending, carding and drafting the wool on to bobbins before it is spun in to thread ready for the next stage of production.

We are one of the few carpet manufacturer that still crafts our own yarn. Our unique blend of 80% wool and 20% nylon pioneered in the 1950’s is now the global standard for carpet quality, reflecting Brintons high quality materials, processes and people that are all parts of our production process.
