Se­nior de­signer at Brin­tons Car­pets Sin­ga­pore.


Ever won­dered what it feels like to step on the plush car­pet­ing grac­ing the halls of Buck­ing­ham Palace? Now you’ll have a chance to feel like roy­alty if you are catch­ing a flight from the newly opened Changi Air­port Ter­mi­nal 4.

Brin­tons Car­pets, the 230-yearold English her­itage car­pet brand, sup­plies all of Her Majesty’s car­pet and rug re­quire­ments, and has long been the bench­mark of lux­ury car­pets. We meet Sar­ba­jit Guha, se­nior de­signer at Brin­tons Car­pets Sin­ga­pore, to talk about the brand’s his­tory and fu­ture in the lo­cal mar­ket.

Brin­tons has been around for over two cen­turies – how can you ex­plain its longevity and strength?

The foun­da­tion for Brin­tons was laid by its 230-year-old his­tory and the cre­ation of the “Brin­tons’ blend” in the 1950s, a com­bi­na­tion of 80 per cent Bri­tish wool and 20 per cent ny­lon, that has be­come the global stan­dard for Axmin­ster car­pets around the world. As a de­sign-fo­cused com­pany, Brin­tons of­fers unique, mod­ern and be­spoke de­signs to cre­ate be­spoke cre­ations that truly re­flect the iden­tity of the com­mis­sion­ing client. The col­lec­tions in­clude hand-painted de­signs, art­works and sketches from 1790 to the present day, and de­sign­ers can be in­spired by its his­tory.

What are some dom­i­nant colours for 2018?

For 2018, we are see­ing warm neu­trals, dark blues, pur­ple and char­coal greys paired with bright colours. Rich, warm and earthy tones, set with brighter and fresher colours, are a grow­ing trend.

Can you share some of the more mem­o­rable col­lec­tions by Brin­tons?

The Katagami and Hand Painted Sketches de­sign col­lec­tions have been in­cred­i­bly pop­u­lar. In­spired by orig­i­nal tex­tile de­sign pa­pers from Brin­tons’ ar­chives – one of the largest com­mer­cial de­sign ar­chives and his­tor­i­cal pat­tern li­braries in the in­dus­try – the de­signs have been used to in­spire the floors in some of the most pres­ti­gious venues across Asia, in­clud­ing the Is­tana and Ter­mi­nal 4 of Changi Air­port in Sin­ga­pore.

How do you en­vi­sion Brin­tons’ car­pets be­ing used in the homes of Sin­ga­pore­ans?

Brin­tons’ car­pets cre­ate an op­u­lent am­bi­ence for a res­i­den­tial space. The car­pets also re­duce noise, cush­ion slips and falls, and pro­vide a com­fort­able un­der­foot. Our car­pets are ex­pres­sions of the self – a story told through de­sign, reflecting the per­son­al­ity of the owner. CHECK OUT BRIN­TONS CAR­PETS AT CHANGI AIR­PORT TER­MI­NAL 4.
