There can be big differences in the work to develop various carpet designs. Some partners have only a rough idea that they want our designers to interpret, whereas others can envisage precisely the direction they want to take and the final result they want to see.
Our design team is skilled in both scenarios, but the starting point naturally differs depending on the conceptions and wishes that exist for a given project.
Important steps for creating bespoke carpets:
Reach out to us!
This is the first step in defining how we can support you. We are ready to act as a sounding board and to convert your ideas into one-of-a-kind carpet solutions. Contact us so we can work together to define the direction and the framework for your project – no matter how far you may have come with your fundamental idea.
Based on this initial dialogue, we can determine the direction we wish to take.
Define ideas and design guidelines
To launch the design process itself, we need your input: a brief description of the project, your ideas and wishes – ideally backed by a few photos, drawings, or sketches. The more visual and written information we have, the better we can transform your thoughts and ideas into a carpet design that fully lives up to your expectations.
In case the starting point is not too specific, our designers will work in the direction they envisage for the project.
Even at this early stage, it is a good idea to dip into our Colourbox and start picking the colours you would like to work with. Our Colourbox includes 220 beautiful standard colours, but when working with larger projects, we will be happy to develop colour tones designed specifically to match your wishes and other interior design elements.
If possible, our design team would like you to supply the following information and to answer the following questions at this stage of the project:
Description of the project
What design expression and atmosphere are you looking to obtain? What story are you keen to tell? Are there any existing elements you plan to retain, and which new elements will you be adding?
Which area(s) are the carpets intended for (guest rooms, corridors, hallways or public spaces)? What carpet quality do you require – here, our carpet specialists will help you select the right quality for the specific area(s).
It would be helpful to receive a floor plan, if available, and photos of the existing carpet solution (for renovations). These are intended to provide our designers with a sense of any special conditions that need to be considered in the design development phase.
A briefing for our designers with a description of the intention and ideas – the more detailed it is, the better the result will match your expectations. It may be a matter of wishes regarding expression, information about other textiles/materials, and colours that need to be matched. The design guideline can involve a
mood board, photos, and other visual elements.
As mentioned, it is not absolutely necessary to supply the material described above but doing so does put our design team in the best position to match any specific conceptions and wishes.
