I’m pretty sure the fascionistas will approve of this plaid carpet find: 100% wool Natural Plaid carpets by the iconic British maker, Axminster aka Wilton. Whereas yesterday’s post focused on an inexpensive, nylon plaid carpet for knotty pine rooms, today I’m spotlighting a more subdued, all-wool style that could suit more formal, even upscale, living spaces. Like, they have photos of Prince Charles on their website.
This carpet is SO pretty. To be sure, they’ve muted all the shades to neutralize the plaid for a wider variety of today’s traditional-bridging-to-modern interiors. (Admittedly, “subdued” = there’s greige-ing going on here. Greige kind of = Sherlock Holmes = old timey cold overcast rainy Jack the Ripper Victorian Britain, of course.
Wool carpeting is warm… derived from a renewable resource (sheep)… and has a lovely sheen. It’s gonna cost you some serious money, though. This is carpeting that you’ll want to stay in the family for a long time.
My other if-I-win-the-Lotto choice for an attic wall-to-wall carpet … available in a much livelier palette … would be Capel, which also has a few styles of woven wool carpeting that you can indeed order in wall-to-wall. What a cozy floor that would be!
