Luxury carpet designer Scott Group is introducing two machine-made carpet programmes called ‘Above and Beyond’ and ‘Swift’ to the European market at EBACE.
‘Above and Beyond’ offers five geometric grid patterns in a range of neutral colours. The patterns are architectural in composition, and the carpets are made using a combination of cut and loop with hand over-tufting. ‘Swift’ is a luxury carpet in soft, neutral colours, made using linear loop and cut pile. Both programs are intended for customers that need a carpet in a short lead time.
“The programs build off the success of our original ‘express’ programme, a multi-colour random loop product produced in 2004,” says stylist Jennifer Kirchgessner, who worked on developing both programmes. “We felt the introduction of these two new programmes would really round out the breadth of the products we could offer in a short lead time. They allow the designer the luxury of selecting the carpet right out of the box, cutting down valuable time by eliminating the need for new colour and pattern development.”
US-based Scott Group designs and manufactures hand-made and custom machine-made wool and silk carpets primarily to the VIP and VVIP private business jet market. It launched the new concepts for aviation industry designers to rave reviews at NBAA last year.
