New collection from Wilton Carpets
‘I’VE looked towards the threat to earth’s precious balance, examining the remarkable patterns drawn by land, sea and air,’ explains designer Kath Swift on the creation of the Fractured Earth collection by Wilton Carpets.
‘From the cracked crusts of sun-baked riverbeds and the crests of rushing tides, to swirling, gathering storm clouds, cracking ice in the meltdown of polar summers and the leaf-bare nakedness of autumn branches; this is a collection with a close connection to nature.’
Fractured Earth is certainly a collection ready to remind us of our primal connection to the earth, with the expressive designs capturing elemental power for a series that uses bold combinations of pattern and colour to extraordinary effect, says Wilton.
It adds: ‘In combinations of slate grey and ocean blue to lava red and desert sand, the designs have a wonderful abstract effect that will empower the interiors of hospitality and leisure locations with a striking base for interior schemes.’
As part of the Design Collection by Wilton Carpets, Fractured Earth can be chosen in any of the prescribed colourways, or work as the perfect muse for a design recoloured through the Wiltshire-based manufacturer’s Ready to Weave woven axminster service, the company points out.
With the ability to adapt any of the 13 designs to a colourway suited to your interior, the service is said to be a quick, easy way to provide a bespoke look for your project.
‘Designed and made in Britain, each Fractured Earth carpet is crafted in a high-quality, wool-rich blend and can be specified in any woven axminster carpet,’ says the company. ‘Offering longevity and appearance retention, this is a collection that offers huge scope for designers looking to strike-out with a statement carpet.’
