Returning to Cranmore Park in Solihull for the Buying Groups National Flooring Show (BGNFS), Abingdon Flooring presented new qualities across its collections.
Abingdon Flooring joined more than 60 flooring companies for this year’s BGNFS, presenting new qualities to keep buying group members in carpets that reportedly deliver style, quality, and affordability. ‘With a preview of Finesse and Caress from the StainFree family and Charter Berber Deluxe and Charter Loop from the wool Wilton Royal collection, as well as a chance to see the hyped Love Story Velveteer and a sneak peak of Wild Silk, Abingdon Flooring really went to town to showcase the best of British carpet manufacturing.’
Charlotte Coop, head of marketing for the carpet company says; ‘BGNFS once again proved its importance as an event for the UK retail flooring sector and even with a really busy couple of years for retailers, it was a fabulous turnout. We used the opportunity to talk visitors through our new collections and show-off our latest creations to keep retailers on the trend curve and which continue our mission to be the UK’s most loved flooring manufacturer.’
The company continues: ‘With a rounded palette of eternally popular grey and beige, as well as some fresh and modern colours, Finesse and Caress share colours and a 1/10th gauge construction, using differing pile weights and depths to balance affordability and luxury throughout the home. With the bleach cleanable and super-soft StainFree yarn, the new styles excel in family homes needing a carpet that looks great and performs well without breaking the bank.
‘Abingdon Flooring is also ensuring a new generation of homeowners enjoy the natural qualities of wool with the 80/20 wool blend of Charter Berber Deluxe. Bringing affordability and the unmistakable look and feel of wool that has been cleverly enhanced with melt-bond for improved appearance retention, this classic Berber style come in 20 elegant colours. And for natural purists, the carpet brand showed Charter Loop, a 100% wool quality in a natural and rustic palette.’
As one of Abingdon’s ‘most notable launches over the past year, it was no surprise Velveteer was something of an attention stealer for visitors. A heavyweight velvet carpet made from bleach cleanable polyester yarn, Velveteer holds the largest ever colour range from Abingdon Flooring. There’s a total of 30 inspiring colours for to pick from Including bold and luxurious tones such as mustard and midnight in a Love Story carpet that says modern luxury’.
The company adds: ‘Abingdon Flooring also used the BGNFS to tease Wild Silk, another Love Story style that looks ready to cause a stir for all the right reasons. Wild Silk’s rustic speckled colour palette is totally unique to the market and aims to bring the practicality and performance of polyester to homes wanting a more natural look in the home.’
Abingdon concludes: ‘And as the dust settles on the BGNFS, one of Britain’s most loved flooring companies is already busy preparing to wow visitors once again at The National Flooring Show in Harrogate this September.’
