choosing the right carpet colour


The colour palette of a carpet is influenced by a number of factors. The trend in design is one of those factors determining trend colours in carpet. 

Every year our developers visit the most influental design tradeshows in the world: Salone del Mobile in Milan, 100% Design in London and Maison & Objet in Paris. Next to that, also smaller exhibitions in e.g. Amsterdam or Cologne are visited. These tradeshows show the materials, colours and designs that will be in fashion in the coming years. These trends are translated to our carpets, be it in the design that is being developed, the yarn that is used or the colour palette that is designed. 

Below are some examples of colours we have seen in the recent past, that formed the inspiration for a number of colours in our carpet collection. Note: for most trends, it will take several years before they reach the Highstreet.


BLUE: both warm and cool 


YELLOW OCHRE: a warm, but daring colour 
ORANGE RUST: another warm colour, also seen on the catwalk 


METALLICS: the catwalk fashion trend for 2013 now also in interiors 
PINK: pretty in (pastel) pink 


GREEN: bringing the outside in 
BLACK AND WHITE: white, grey and black in combination
