A beautiful botanical print carpet from Wilton Carpets Commercial now covers the floor of The Three Bears bar and restaurant in Stockport, giving the interior of the pub a modern and welcoming feel.
As part of the redesign of The Three Bears’ interiors scheme, Frederic Robinsons Brewery commissioned a design practice to create a classic, timeless interior for the bar and restaurant. Using a collection of floral illustrations to inspire the carpet design, the brief was to move away from the usual small-scale floral prints and instead use a contemporary large-scale floral pattern to give The Three Bears a distinctly modern feel.
The design team at Wilton Carpets Commercial took the brief and turned it into reality, creating a large-scale botanical print that has the appearance of a hand-drawn illustration and features detailed, blown-up motifs to create a striking look. Using a burnt orange base colour and a contrasting cream flower print with red and green detailing, the resulting design lifts the interior of The Three Bears and clearly fulfils the interior ambitions of the brewery.
The bespoke bar and restaurant carpet benefited from Wilton Carpet Commercial’s Flexiweave service which uses colours from a standard palette. The palette selected incorporated a complementary array of contemporary and traditional colours. The carpet, laid by Adams Floorcoverings, was made from 80% wool and 20% nylon for durability and appearance retention with a 7 x 8 row quality. With a lead time of just 28 days the flexible Flexiweave service was the ideal option for the restaurant’s interior.
