Textured appeal


Adding a dash of texture to a clean-lined interior with smooth, painted walls and pared-back furnishings helps to create a feeling of warmth and comfort.

Cavalier Bremworth manufactures a number of textured carpet collections that provide a welcome contrast in a home with a minimalist décor.

When it was first launched, Cavalier Bremworth's Barathea range won the Interior Designex Flooring Award for innovation as well as for excellence in design and manufacture. Barathea, a distinctive textured loop-pile carpet, has a pattern that subtly blends two colours together. The range of eight light and dark taupes, greys, browns and neutral colours includes four contemporary earthy shades.

Another range, Ridgeway, has a refined tailored appearance that suits formal and eclectic settings. Like Barathea, its eight shades are inspired by colours in nature, such as stone and bark.

Marketing manager of Cavalier Bremworth David Philippe says these colours have proved themselves to be extremely complementary to today's interior trends, creating a calm, serene and tranquil home environment.


Both Barathea and Ridgeway are 100% pure new wool and carry a Wools of New Zealand Residential Extra Heavy Duty plus Stairs grading.

Marquetry, a three-coloured, textured loop-pile carpet, offers a powerful design element for many interiors by providing depth, richness and warmth, Philippe says.

This range is graded Contract Heavy Duty plus Stairs by Wools of New Zealand indicating its suitability for both commercial and residential usage. It is available in nine colourways.
