Christophe is one of our founders and creative director. His passions are interiors, cooking, and traveling the globe for new inspiration.

During our travels in Portugal, we visited the Burrel Wool Factory in the Serra da Estrela. The factory’s current owners acquired it in the early 2000s, but the factory is much older. We were able to see beautiful 19th-century machinery weaving unique color combinations of wool. Old loom masters were training the new generation about the Burel’s tradition.

We were particularly inspired by a combination of warm orange and cream colors that one of the machines was weaving. This color combination would be especially beautiful in the Herringbone carpet from the Essentials collection, which has a strong focus on timeless textures and carpet patterns that are sure to look great in any project.

Since the warm-toned herringbone carpet is the protagonist of this material board, we wanted to complement it with dark blues like Pal Dp Flynn Strie and Lost Coast, which add some depth. We also included some textured textiles in neutral colors like Kabuto by Designtex, Linosa by Vescom, and Husk by Febrik. Additionally, we included even more texture with Nature Sumatra by Tile Bar and Eco-Terr Tiles by Coverings ETC. We also included gray-toned materials like Zellige and Dekton Soke to add some cool tones. Garcia Glow adds just the right amount of color to the overall look and some unique textures. Lastly, Empathy by Valley Forge Fabrics is the perfect shade of orange that matches the herringbone carpet.

Talk Carpet’s Easy Recolor program allows you to recolor any of our many carpet designs. You can also choose any of our nine substrates and create the carpet that fits your project’s budget and feel. Our online recolor tool allows you to visualize what your carpet looks like easily, and our team can help you with anything you may need.
