Brintons to launch a new rug collection!


Royal Warrant holders since 1958, Brintons have been invited to mark the Coronation Festival this July by designing and curating a 1950s style room, set in the grounds of Buckingham Palace.

Brintons will be launching a rug collection during the festival, called The Coronation Rug Collection inspired by original 1950's designs from Brintons' archives, including the Mimosa design by Matisse that dates back to 1951. They will also be showcasing their patented High Definition Weave technology.

The look of the room will draw a modern take on a 1950's living room, the floors and the walls will be covered in Brintons carpet inspired by the famous "Net and Ball" design that was used in the Royal Festival Hall foyer for the 1951 Festival of Britain, and the very same design will cover a 1950s sofa on jersey fabric to create a play on scale and challenge the interpretation of a living space. Guests can also enjoy a felt ceiling sculpture using remnants of yarn from the production of Brintons carpets, mirroring the post-war ethos of thrift current in 1951.

A woodland image will be displayed, woven on Brintons pioneering High Definition Weave loom. This patented technology can produce photo realistic, three-dimensional design definition in 32 colours, compared to conventional looms that use 8-12 colours.

Brintons reputation is built on design innovation and product excellence. The designer was keen to emulate the hand finished touches that Brintons has established and proudly maintained as a pioneering British manufacturer since 1783.
