Customer Project: Sisal Carpet and Bespoke Wool Rug in Harrogate

In the heart of the picturesque town of Harrogate, nestled within the walls of a traditional stone-built property, our recent carpet project stands as a testament to the seamless fusion of elegance and durability.

Client's Vision:

Our client, a young family residing in a charming stone-built home, approached us with a clear vision in mind. They sought a harmonious blend of natural materials and textures to enhance the character of their lounge. Additionally, being a family with young children, durability and robustness were non-negotiable factors in their flooring decision.

Material Selection:

Understanding the client's desire for a natural aesthetic, we recommended a flooring combination that exuded both warmth and resilience. The primary choice was a natural sisal carpet, known for its organic texture and earthy appeal. Sisal is not only visually pleasing, suiting both traditional and contemporary design schemes, but also stands the test of time in high-traffic areas.

To add a touch of luxury and personalised flair, we proposed a large bespoke rug crafted from 100% undyed wool. This has been key in pulling the room together, grounding and defining the seating area.

The Benefits of Natural Fibers:

Sisal, extracted from the agave plant, boasts inherent durability and resistance to wear and tear. Its natural texture adds an inviting feel to the space while maintaining a timeless charm.

Wool, a classic choice for rugs and carpets, not only provides a soft and comfortable surface but also brings natural insulation to the room. Both materials are environmentally friendly, aligning with the growing trend of sustainable and eco-conscious living.

Customisation for a Unique Touch:

To ensure the flooring resonated with the client's personal style, we collaborated closely on the design of the bespoke wool rug and co-ordinating colours with the sisal and decorating choices. The rug, made entirely from premium-quality wool, featured an interesting weave that complemented the sisal. This personalised touch not only elevated the visual appeal but also made the space uniquely theirs.

Integration with Interior Elements:

Harmony in design was achieved by considering the existing elements of the lounge. The walls were painted in Farrow & Ball's 'Stoney Ground,' a subtle and sophisticated hue that served as a perfect backdrop for the natural flooring materials. The colour palette created a cohesive and inviting atmosphere, tying together the entire room seamlessly.

Durability for a Growing Family:

Recognising the need for a robust flooring solution, our team ensured that both the sisal carpet and wool rug were treated for enhanced durability. This protective layer not only made the flooring resistant to stains and spills but also contributed to its longevity, making it an ideal choice for a household with active children.

The transformation of this Harrogate lounge exemplifies the successful marriage of aesthetics and functionality in flooring. By carefully selecting natural materials like sisal and wool, customizing a bespoke rug, and considering the practical needs of a young family, our team at Floor Design Wetherby was able to deliver a solution that exceeded the client's expectations. This case study serves as an inspiring example for those seeking to enhance their living spaces with flooring that is not only visually appealing but also stands the test of time.
