Let’s face it, there’s not much that you can do with a twist pile carpet when it comes to revamping a range. It is, after all, meant to be relatively plain and level in texture. What may not be immediately clear is that colours go in and out of fashion – who remembers tangerine carpet from the 70s, eh… eh?
The holy grail of the carpet manufacturer is to find just the right number of colours to sell, the perfect balance between selling lots of every colour (so you don’t have thousands upon thousands of pounds tied up in stock that doesn’t sell)… or having a sample book full of at least twenty beiges (see this post for a trade joke regarding beige carpets I don’t have the willpower to repeat). And let me tell you, there are a lot of manufacturers who think the latter option is a reasonable proposition. It’s not. It’s boring.
We’ve worked with Westex Carpets for many, many years – and testament to how good their colour choices are, they hardly change from year to year. That’s great for you, because you always have good, fashionable colours to choose from. And it’s great for me, because I know with 99.9% certainty that my samples are always up-to-date. Through Westex we offer a fantastic bespoke colour service too, so you don’t have to rely on colours the manufacturer thinks are good for you – just have your carpet made for you in the perfect colour to begin with.
With subtle greys sweeping through the world of interior design, it seems silly to keep pushing clients through the process of bespoke colours, however easy it is. So for 2015 we’re now offering our Ultima range in 15 new shades, in addition to the 120 colourways already available. Oh, and every quality is possible with these new colours, as it was before… so Ultima now represents a total choice of 1080 carpets!
The new 2015 colours
They’re lovely, aren’t they? These colours may be pale, but they’re almost guaranteed to work with any soft furnishings you have, or any neutral colour scheme. We also like the way that there’s always another colour to choose from – like Fleece but have kids? Try Quartz, etc..
The New Ultima Twist colours for 2015 can be seen in all their glory in both our Weston-super-Mare and Bristol showrooms – or just ask us for samples which we can send to you today. Calling all interior designers – there’s a special A4-size sample card with all the new colours, just for you. Get in touch and we’ll sort out your new samples, too.
