Switch from Brintons

Brintons, world leaders in designing and manufacturing woven contract carpets, are launching their latest new stocked range – Switch – designed specifically for Australian hospitality, gaming and leisure applications in autumn 2013.

Brintons’ Switch collection offers specifiers and end users a choice from ten striking broadloom woven Axminster carpets in a sophisticated and on trend colour palette. The collection boasts an eclectic mix of styles; from chic architecturally-inspired geometrics, interspersed with vibrant hues of rich three-dimensional textures. Each pattern unites dramatic design with a profusion of delicious colour; moody slate and pewter form the backdrop to splashes of vibrant violet, bold grapefruit, electric tangerine and eye-catching rust. The new designs in the Switch collection are; 

Clover (above) – A bright and modern design, utilising a unique motif in alternating metallic tones of aluminium and pewter with golden yellow. A signature piece sure to astonish. 

Rebel – A textural design of layered rings encapsulating a geometric tribal feel, with rich violet and ruby tones balanced with moss and soft grey suede. 

Solitaire – Inspired by the intricate cut of a diamond ring, this design combines bold grapefruit offset by a textured black and grey background to really create that ‘wow’ factor. 

Storm – This chevron inspired design embraces deep ocean hues, reminiscent of a dark stormy night and equally effective in any size area. 

Villa – A simple yet effective design, rich in deep blue and grey shades with tessellating rectangles that will look stylish and practical in any size area. 

Woven in Brintons’ own 80% wool, 20% nylon yarn blend, Switch is able to withstand the wear and tear of heavy foot traffic and meet the daily needs of a busy contract space. Available from stock in 2m width, it is perfect for fast-turnaround projects. 

This capsule collection presents a series of floor coverings that are versatile and easy to maintain, continuing Brintons’ reputation for innovative design technique, technical expertise and exacting global quality standards.
