Mc Three: Young and Dynamic
The machine-woven collections of Belgian carpet manufacturer Mc Three make for an enhanced home-living experience. Modern graphic patterns, ‘vintage’ styles and everything in between are designed to appeal to younger buyers’ interior decorating urges.
Creatives are drawn to a certain “boho” flair with cheerful colours and a handcrafted Berber look. The polypropylene yarn utilised has a wool-like structure.
Jersey Home rugs fit in perfectly with the casual-industrial ‘loft’ style. Their stringent ‘all-over’ designs in muted tones bring technical perfection to the hand-made tradition. An interplay between thicker and thinner threads yarns creates three-dimensionality. The carpets are suitable for outdoors.
“Reflection” is a collection for those who are serious about sustainability, made of recycled polypropylene yarn with backing made of yarn production leftovers instead of jute. Restrained design makes the collection even more sustainable because it never really gets outdated, even as fashions come and go.
The Sevilla line, with its generous abstract motifs is perfect for the modern ambience, in which one likes to show oneself trend-conscious ─ contemporary forms with a touch of retro.
Paulig: Organic shapes: inviting and relaxing
You don’t really even need a sofa: the Salsa Lounge seat cushions with round carpets Salsa Jamaica and Salsa Tortuga make the floor itself an inviting place to relax. Made of 100% New Zealand wool, these soft pieces give you a real close-to-nature feel, with trendy, organic shapes and structures that appeal to the senses, making your home more homey and cosy.
These carpets are always made-to-measure in diameters up to 5 metres, their thick yarns braided and sewn by hand. Made of a slightly finer yarn, the Salsa Tortuga carpet is flatter than Salsa Jamaica. The Salsa Lounge seat cushions come in sizes S, M and L, and all products can be had either as unicolour or in a combination of up to three different colours.
Golze / Astra: Diversely colourful
Representing a broad range of designs from vintage to classic oriental to ethnic-handcrafted, the carpets comprising the latest Astra collection can augment any style of interior to make the home more homey. They come in a diverse range of high-quality materials as well, including pure wool, mixed fabrics and synthetic fibre, accommodating every taste and every budget. Available in several sizes, and custom dimensions, up to 400 x 1,000 cm.
Golze / Schöner Wohnen: Carpets for the outdoor season
The latest outdoor carpets in the Schöner Wohnen collection feature an ornamental pattern reminiscent of Mediterranean tile designs, with an intriguing high-low structure within a fine flatweave in a spectrum of combinable colours. They are made of robust, weatherproof 100% polypropylene fibre that is easy to clean – dirt just washes right off with a spray of a water hose. Available in standard sizes, the carpets give balconies and terraces an inviting, decorous flair underfoot. These decorative carpets look just as well indoors too, and are suitable for underfloor heating.
HTW/Halbmond Teppichwerke: Sixteen styles in top print quality
For its latest collection ‘Rug Creations’, the company Halbmond Teppichwerke, based in Germany’s Vogtland region, is going all-out with cutting-edge digital printing technology. Founded in the town of Oelsnitz in 1880 as a modest weaving mill, the firm still has production today at the same location, but now is a high-tech innovator as an international machine weaver of carpets.
The company started using a Colaris printing machine in 2019 for products up to two metres wide. This new machine delivers even finer reproduction quality, and can use up to 24 colour tones per design, based around the four primary colours.
The Rug Creations collection of Halbmond Teppichwerke has been created using this very technology, consisting of sixteen styles for tasteful interior decor. These throw rugs feature sharply contoured, high-resolution designs typical of digital printing.
‘Rusty Look’ is all about industrial flair, depicting iron through colour simulating a rust patina.
Similarly, ‘Traces of Times’ reveals the beauty that emerges as materials and surfaces change through the ravages of time. ‘Touch of Persia’ is of course a re-interpretation of traditional Persian carpet patterns, while the linear patterns of ‘Graphic Geometric’ make for a subtle ambient augmentation. ‘Scarf Looks’ picks up on the elegance of fashionable scarves, and ‘Blooming Tales’ is characterised by lush, sometimes delicate floral patterns that have a touch of the romantic. ‘Expressive Painting’ dips into the paint without restraint, transforming carpets into modern art. And the magical colour gradients of the ‘Water Colours’ style bring vibrant accents to interiors.
The products come in four sizes: 90 x 135 cm, 120 × 180 cm, 160 × 240 cm and 200× 300 cm. Digital printing technology is ideal for smaller production runs.
Theo Keller: The Sansibar collection: for that Sylt feeling
Surfers, sun, beaches, screeching seagulls, faded wood and a refreshing drink ... the cult-classic restaurant Sansibar on the North Sea island of Sylt is the inspiration for the collection that bears its name, created by Theo Keller.
“Rantum Beach” is a product line that manifests the feel of summer in eighteen imaginative ways. These evocative carpet designs will inject a feel-good element into any living space, including balconies and terraces – being made of durable, colour-fast and UV-resistant materials suitable for use outdoors. The carpets are short flatweaves made of polypropylene and polyester certified free of harmful substances. Suitable for floors with underfloor heating. Available in seven sizes ranging from 60 x 100 cm to 190 x 290 cm, including a 100 x 200 size ideal for beaches.
Reinkemeier Rietberg: Vintage Casual
The new Punto Deluxe carpet collection of Reinkemeier Rietberg, a family firm based in eastern Westphalia, represents the ultimate in digital print quality, delivering the impact of authenticity. The traditional oriental rug designs in the collection have a charming ‘used look’, radiating with the faded splendour of bygone days. This is complemented by natural structures reminiscent of weathered stone surfaces or patinated iron, for example, that lend a modern touch. Both go very well with contemporary styles of interior decor. A 100% polyester surface provides for a velvety soft feel whilst cotton backing adds volume to the machine-woven rug, as well as a pleasant grip. Punto Deluxe throw rugs are available 80 x 150 cm, 120 x 170 cm, 160 x 230 cm and 200 x 290 cm.
AKO - Kolckmann: Safety outdoors
The company AKO Kolckmann has developed a non-slip, weather-resistant covering called AKO Unico that is specially made for use outdoors in the home and semi-public areas. Designed for a temperature range of -25°C up to 60°C, the product ensures sure-footed walking on terraces, balconies and entrance areas year-round.
“Made in Germany” quality: this long-established family firm is known as a specialist in carpet and tablecloth underlays and safety and sports mats, and manufactures its products exclusively in the town of Alfdorf in the the German state of Baden-Württemberg. The AKO Unico covering is made of PES/glass yarn fabric with a surface of PVC granulate, and meets class R13 slip resistance standards and class Bfl-S1 fire protection standards.
This outdoor covering product comes in five trendy colours – stone, basalt, graphite, sand and lava – and is produced in 10m rolls that are 1.20 cm wide and easily cut to fit any desired length. The company also sells angled stair mats with dimensions of 30 x 73 cm. A wooden display holding 12 rolls is available for retailers with dimensions of 120 x 250 cm.
Theo Keller: Miami: Stylish Wool
“Miami” carpets have an elegantly reserved yet intriguing look with their fine tone-on-tone stripe pattern and colour accent at the ends. These fine carpets of flat handloom quality are made of viscose and New Zealand wool. They are environmentally friendly, being made of materials that are both renewable and 100% degradable. The new wool in the carpets makes them robust, and beyond that also provides automatic, natural air cleaning thanks to antistatic properties that bind airborne impurities, positively influencing the room climate. Available in six sizes ranging from 70 x 140 up to 190 x 290 cm.
Note for buyers: wool carpets lose some of their extra wool fibres at first, which subsides after regular hoovering and being tread on. The carpet pile becomes more stable in this process and the wool attains a more brilliant look.
Rezas: Harvest – A Sensual Experience
The latest rugs in the Harvest collection of Danish provider Rezas make a real statement: luxuriously thick and heavy, warmly elegant and a meditatively abstract all-over pattern. Fine white and black silk lines form irregular grids running through the densely woven Persian wool structure in lightly varying stone and clay tones. The great craftsmanship in play is apparent, as Rezas is deliberately recalling the knotting tradition of nomadic gabbehs, translated into modern design language. These Harvest collection rugs come in various sizes, from 141 x 193 cm on up to 303 x 380 cm. Their aesthetic presence can optimally unfold in larger rooms.
