22nd May 2018
It's a busy week for Brintons as we head down to London for two major shows this week.
Clerkenwell Design Week: 22nd-24th May 2018
Our new Craigend Collection designed by long-term collaborators Timorous Beasties debuts at Clerkenwell Design Week 2018.
This new commercial carpet series was inspired by textures and surfaces found naturally underfoot, including sand dunes, stone moss and lichen, all re-imagined in the Brintons signature blend of 80% wool and 20% nylon. With Craigend, Timorous Beasties have called upon their fascination with the often-brutal beauty of the natural world, as well as taking aesthetic inspiration from different crafting materials including paint, ink and fabric.
Taking over St Johns Square the collection is debuted this week in an impressive pop-up installation, open to the public. The space showcases a unique selection of woven carpet designs taken from the new collection. Famous for their outstanding diversity of pattern and large scale designs, Timorous Beasties are a favourite with our commercial customers but should you wish to bring a touch of their style into your space don't forget we have a Timorous Beasties collection specifically for homes too.
RHS Chelsea Flower Show: 22nd-26th May 2018
As long term users and supporters of British Wool we have plenty of friends who are in the know about what a wonderful and versatile material we are working with. Kim from Twool got in touch with us as she wanted her stand at the Chelsea Flower Show to be as packed with as much of this brilliant fibre as possible so we were more than happy to supply her stand with a wool-rich carpet from our City Plaids range. Twool products are made in Devon from the ‘lustre’ long wool of the rare breed Whiteface Dartmoor sheep and their range varies from gardening accessories to dog leads and housewares.
