Brintons unveil latest Timorous Beasties collaboration
09 September 2010 11:13 GMT
Brintons carpets and iconic Scottish design house Timorous Beasties have pooled their design skills to launch a new collection that redefines the creative possibilities when working with hand tufted rugs.
The groundbreaking 'Timorous Beasties Rugs by Brintons' collection has taken two years to develop and marks a continuation of the companies' successful design collaboration relationship that produced its first work in 2007 when 'First Weave' was launched. This distinctive collection has gone on to record massive global success and is credited as being instrumental in changing the perception of how carpet can be used in an interior space.
The creative brief behind the latest design collection from Brintons and Timorous Beasties was to challenge the limitations of hand tufted rugs – a product that has traditionally been the subject of a restrictive practice of manufacture – and extend the creative possibilities through highly innovative design.
The collection has been divided into seven themes that are inspired by natural and spiritual influences: Arboresque, Atholl Gardens, Aviary, Paradise Lost, Plantation, This Modern World and Tree of Life. All of the designs are completely on trend and are expected to be classics in the future because they feature many traditional elements that have been re-interpreted through contemporary design.
The collection will be available in broadloom Axminster specification as well as the hand tufted rug format and all of the designs in the seven themes can be adapted by Brintons to suit specific interior design requirements.
Brintons will showcase its 'Timorous Beasties Rugs by Brintons' collection during London Design Festival at a venue in the heart of Spitalfields. The address is Unit 3, 11-29 Fashion Street, London E1 6PX.
