Wilton Carpets has launched the Mansion collection of luxury axminster carpet, inspired by London’s historic mansion buildings. Created by the Wilton Carpets design team, this hand-picked collection relies on strong linear geometrics, echoing the period features of these illustrious buildings, which are considered among the city’s most unique architectural treasures.
Made for communal areas in luxury apartment buildings, but just as suited to use in hotels and other hospitality locations, the Mansion collection features 16 unique designs; from contemporary concepts to classical sophistication. The Wilton design team has played with scale too, creating compact and refined designs ideal for smaller corridors, to large patterns that remain entirely elegant and best-suited to larger areas such as entrances.
Damian Roscoe, head of creative, Wilton Carpets, reveals: “The capital’s mansion buildings really are a hidden gem and as a natural home for luxurious axminster carpet, they seemed an obvious muse for a carpet collection. With a rich architectural heritage spanning a period of over half-a-century, these buildings are a treasure trove of inspiration for carpet designers. Mansion captures this essence, with a layer of modernity that makes them equally relevant for communal areas of luxury apartments found in cities and towns right across the UK, as well as within the buildings that inspired them.”
Any of the 16 designs within the Mansion collection can be recoloured to match any interior design scheme and in various qualities depending on the footfall demands of the building. Wilton makes all its woven axminster carpets from a blend of 80% pure new wool and 20% nylon for the best combination of luxury and durability. The Mansion collection is designed and made in the Britain for unmistakable quality.
