Muizenberg is a beach town in Western Cape Town, South Africa. It is an independent seaside town and is located on the shore of the Cape Peninsula. Sitting 18 miles from the city center, the town has been a top-rated vacation destination since the 19th century. The town is full of fun and adventurous bohemian culture and is famous for its large and lively white beach. Popular for being a surfer’s paradise, there are always people hanging out on the beach.

The beaches of Muizenberg are famous for their surfers and the colorful beach huts along the coast. The beach huts are in a linear pattern, with each beach hut very close to the next.  Located between Muizenberg and St. James, the cabins are the only remaining beach houses from 20th century Edwardian architecture. The houses are in an Italian style, with pops of color on each wall. The huts are so picture-famous that they are often on travel magazines, postcards and are one of the most Instagrammable spots in Cape Town.

We enjoy these beach huts so much that we immediately felt our creative juices flowing. The idea sprouted to create a linear carpet pattern reflecting the many angles and lines of the roofs and stairs. Since these huts appear to have last been updated in the eighties, we have added a retro vibe to our design. Mixed with a bold and primary color palette, we bring you a commercial corridor carpet that excels in originality.

We reduce materials waste by using a roll layout for our carpet patterns, minimizing the amount of material used. In addition, talk Carpet is now also a part of DIFFA’s specify with care program. That means that 1% of our custom sales revenue will be donated to DIFFA to fight against HIV/AIDS.

If you like this retro carpet pattern or want to create your very own custom linear design, please contact one of our team members. Talk Carpet’s custom program offers an unlimited number of designs and colors. Our custom carpets have one of the lowest minimums in the industry and are available as broadloom wall-to-wall carpet or carpet tiles. With nine carpet constructions, we offer an entry-level option of $21/SY from low pile carpet to the luxury of a wool/nylon blend as a high-end commercial carpet. In addition, we can send you a custom sample in 7 business days from approval of a digital design print.
