Wilton Carpets Commercial has become one of the foremost suppliers of carpet for the hospitality industry, with its standard offer and bespoke design service delivering a blend of style, performance and value. Responsible for many of the manufacturer’s striking creations, design manager, Julie Robertson, explores the latest trends in carpet for the sector.

The trend for structure continues unabated, with designers going for an array of styles – from true retro classics through to complex computer-generated algorithms and fractals, for looks that have a mesmerising and hypnotic quality.

With a profusion of architectural and natural skeletal structures, elements of lace and meshing layers to create multi-faceted interest, or simply a flat two-colour statement, these modern geometrics really do deliver a smart contemporary statement.

Yet throughout, a retro-edge remains, with clean chevrons, crystallised structures and triangles balanced by more delicate spirographs, laser cut filigrees and lattices. All retain clever use of colour as a common theme, giving depth and lending movement. Scales are multi-level, from smart geometrics in meeting rooms, to full-blown oversize in simple-subtles or multi-coloured in function areas.

This new wave of geometric pattern is also incredibly flexible, popular in contemporary interiors, but also proving worthy among interior architecture created in decorative style periods. Wherever used the end result is the same, with the carpet creating a stunning design statement.

Many of these designs are featured with our Elements collection, and are available in beautiful fashionable jewels and contemporary neutrals.
