Brintons joins Carpet Recycling UK

Increasingly, businesses, householders and local authorities are looking for better alternatives for the recycling of unwanted carpet materials. Brintons are proud to now be a member of Carpet Recycling UK, a not for profit membership association working to increase the recycling of carpet waste across the UK.

Alongside other industry leaders, Brintons supports Carpet Recycling UK as a ‘Core Funder’ fostering the development of voluntary producer responsibility for carpets throughout their lifecycle. Carpet Recycling UK help to ensure that the growing demand for carpet recycling services is met. Through innovation in end-of-life solutions for carpets they envisage a world where 100% of all carpet waste is diverted from landfill through either re-use or recycling.

In 2017 the volume of carpet diverted from landfill rose to an impressive 42%. This 7% increase on the previous year sets a good precedent to suggest a continuation in diverting carpet waste as more companies enroll in support of CRUK.

We are fully committed to striving to improve the products and services we offer to all of our customers while minimising any negative environmental impacts or safety risks. We look forward to working with Carpet Recycling UK to further improve our efforts.

Building Blocks of Color

In celebration of Blokwerk from Oren Sherman turning two this month, we've revisited five original corridor patterns. The building blocks of color; red, yellow, and blue, bring us back to the true basics of this De Stijl inspired axminster design collection.

Immersed in the widely influential waters of the De Stijl movement, Blokwerk from Oren Sherman presents a collection of carefully composed designs offering an innovative solution to corridor design. Oren Sherman brings a restrained simplicity to the world of axminster, resulting in the truly collaborative collection of elementally flexible designs.

Constructed with harmonious textures and contemporary color, Blokwerk offers a multitude of ways to balance color and shape, manage scale and proportion, turn corners, and extend perspectives.

In case you missed it – Oren Sherman shares his behind-the-scenes inspiration with Interiors+Sources. Read the article here: 'The A-Ha Moment' by Jenna Lippin.

On Trend: Scintillate: To emit flashes of light, sparkle

“Rejoice with glitters of ashes tonight, sparkling for moon's spiced silver bite, Upon skin of darkness, loving night more, Storm begins unlocking cold wind's door” ― Munia Khan

A little sparkle can add a little finishing touch to your design.  A hint of luxury, shine or polish.  How does carpet sparkle?  With colour of course!  Carefully placed colours can appear metallic or shiny on a grand scale. The type of shine that could never be seen from a shiny yarn type alone.  It requires the designer to think of the bigger picture, how the floor will be seen overall.
