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 Restrained design makes the collection even more sustainable because it never really gets outdated, even as fashions come and go.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.
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.
Mc Three: Natural tones and delicate patterns
Muted natural tones and delicate patterns characterise the current collections of the Belgian weaver Mc Three. The slightly irregular graphic-organic Beni Ouarain designs go well with this colour scheme.
Tom Tailor / Theo Keller: Carpets reminiscent of modern art
In cooperation with the Hamburg-based home blogger Anne Dirfard, Tom Tailor developed the "Coloured Shapes" series, and Theo Keller had the carpets made. The result is a well affordable and at the same time very stylish rug that combines big coloured areas and shapes reminiscent of modern art.
Balta Home: Antique look and different yarn thicknesses
Balta Home offers machine-woven Berber-look carpets with very different looks and feels: The Berclon quality Re_Fold with a very short pile ("zero pile") is even foldable for easy shipping. The basic fabric made of recycled cotton (from production surpluses) gives the carpet an antique look.
Mc Three: Round, oval and irregular shapes
Belgian machine weaver Mc Three has fully embraced the shape trend. The product range includes round and oval rugs as well as slightly irregular shapes, flat-woven or with pile.
