Designer Rugs Introduces Menswear-inspired Carpet by Axminster

Borrowing the aesthetic finesse and precise tailoring of modern menswear, Axminster carpets supplied through Australia by Designer Rugs offers a stylish addition for a multitude of design applications.

Designer Rugs has recently introduced MR Carpet – a new collection of monochromatic Axminster carpet from ­– produced for the local market exclusively my their in-house experts Johnathon Murray and Shaun Russell. Exploring the latest trends on geometric wall-to-wall carpeting, the collection has a signature menswear-inspired twist, featuring masculine prints in a high quality, versatile product.

“We wanted to create a collection around a classic tartan, along with other designs to compliment it” says Russell. “After many request from clients for simple black and white carpet, we perceived a place in the market for MR Carpet – geometric designs with our personal menswear signature.”

While hard floor surfaces offer a slick finish to a space, the tactile luxury, warmth and ease offered by carpet assures its lasting reputation as a popular floor covering for years to come. The tartan, floral and stripe designs offered by MR Carpet not only provide these practical offerings, but also carry a strong and contemporary aesthetic that is guaranteed to perform in high traffic areas.

MR Carpet is suitable for a wide range of projects, from residential to large scale commercial fit outs. The classic colour offering and timeless designs ensure this high quality carpet will shine in a great number of design situations across both residential and commercial applications (and beyond!).

The debut MR Carpet collection consists of 4 designs – Alford, Iona, Kintore and Leith – and is currently available through Designer Rugs. Each design can also be custom-coloured to suit any project brief and requirement.

Typical for Australia’s leading rug company, Designer Rugs specializes in handmade custom rugs and carpets for both residential, commercial and hospitality interiors, with a commitment to quality, originality and exceptional service. The MR Carpet collection is on display at Designer Rugs’ showrooms in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Auckland and viewable online at designerrugs.com.au
