Domino is part of a recent vibrant collaboration between renowned interior designer Kit Kemp MBE and Wiltons Carpets. This detailed diamond design is based on traditional Turkish textural weavings and is also a definite ode to the Arts and Crafts movement.

Flock’s hand-plaited dyed natural fibre Gaia rugs are available at wall-to-wall bespoke sizes up to 4m width. This okra fibre option is also combined with a mix of high quality wool, producing a strong, chunky surface texture, resilient to wear and tear.

Lorraine, a design collaboration by Casa Botelho and Jennifer Manners, is hand knotted in New Zealand wool and bamboo silk, available in French grey, emerald green, navy, bronze and teal. Lorraine can be made to any wall to wall size.

Jacaranda’s Santushti & Satara broadloom carpet unites its trademark natural palette with rich tones inspired by India, where this collection is hand woven and hand looped on traditional wooden looms. Fossil, like all in the range, is made of TENCEL®, a botanic fibre.

Top Floor, headed up by Istanbul-born graphic designer Esti Barnes, has launched a highly patterned carpet range, Allure, inspired by the sights, sounds and textures of Brazil. Amazon, seen here in monochrome,  is one of eight sophisticated but dynamic designs.

Kelly Hoppen by Brintons, is her debut carpet range for the contract market. She has applied her pared back look to much of the collection, but Q03 is a stand out geometric piece in a more vibrant colourway. All are woven to order.

In 90% wool and 10% lurex, deep pile Barefoot, seen in the Quartz Citrine colourway, is by Alternative Flooring. Taking its design cue from rock formation striations, Barefoot is completely handwoven in natural un-dyed wool so each section will have its own unique irregularities.
