Global industry leader in luxury woven carpets, Brintons, teams up with New York
design studio Stacy Garcia to create their latest Axminster collaboration, Materialize.
Inspired by ingredients, Materialize brings the raw, deconstructed elements of the creative process to the surface. Colors, textures, and forms are derived from an array of mixed medias formulating wool-rich Axminster designs teeming with dimension.
“As designers, we are constantly sourcing inspiration from the world around us.We are continuously digesting the way light hits surfaces, how lines intersect, how value changes and colors cope next to one another.” Chief Inspiration Officer, Stacy Garcia explains.“But how often do we stop to look at the materials laid out in frontof us and really celebrate the process of pulling together a hotel, a room, or a collection of patterns?” Garcia asks.
The new Brintons + Stacy Garcia Axminster collection highlights what can happen when we take a magnifying glass to the design process, dissect the ubiquitous materials available to creatives–wood, wool, paper, paint– and look at them in a new light. The design elements in Materialize, ranging from large-scale oral bursts to muted marbled paper, bring trompe l’oeil texture and strikingly tactile compositions to the floor.
While keeping in line with Stacy Garcia’s signature style of bold unapologetic color and stylized medallions, the collection also features her ability to transform traditional patterns into unique contemporary statements.
Taking material like the directional grain in a piece of oak and arranging metal studs in a language that could only be written in Axminster, Materialize continues to rede ne the limits of the ooring industry. By utilizing the Brintons patented High Definition Weave technology, the company is able to create carpets with up to 32 different color channels – the most in the industry.
“Imagine the initial spark of inspiration.” Garcia explains.“Consider what a fascinating journey it must be to become a physical reality; a journey that is too often overlooked once the final creation is unveiled.”
Materialize celebrates this process by dissecting the different surfaces, colors, and transparencies that make up our world, rearranging them and delivering diverse Axminster designs.The patterns can be recolored, rescaled, and reimagined to t any interior project or budget.
