It started with a trip to our archive, which holds patterns from as early as 1790, the curators worked with Brintons archivist Yvonne Smith to select original hand painted designs. Historic Royal Palaces required designs that were authentic to the period when Victoria would have lived in the Palace and so Brintons was an obvious choice for this very special project. The carpets chosen were from the Georgian period and Brintons designer Kay Jones subsequently worked on a detailed specification to prepare the designs for manufacture.
We are proud to own one of the world's largest commercial design archives and historical pattern libraries in the industry, restored and preserved by our Archive Manager Yvonne Smith. The archive library is a facility unique to Brintons and is an invaluable resource to designers, conservators, decorators and contractors worldwide.
