Considering A Wool Carpet
Wool carpet is the premium fibre choice for your home. The wool fibre production process consists of The Natural Elements…Sun, Rain, Grass and Sheep. No artificial ingredients needed, no artificial ingredients added.

Premium Luxury

Wool carpets have a natural, soft and luxurious feel. The long lasting beauty and superior characteristics of wool carpet will enhance your home for years to come.

 

Natural

Wool shorn from sheep is completely natural.  It is composed entirely of amino acids, the building blocks of life. In soil, wool readily biodegrades to produce nitrogen, sulphur, carbon dioxide and water, which are all plant nutrients.

 

Naturally Stain and Soil Resistant

Wool carpets clean better, making stain protection unnecessary.  The wool fibre’s structure consists of overlapping scales, arranged much like roof shingles.  These scales inhibit dirt from adhering to the fibre and help fleck it away.  Wool has significantly better soil release than any other fibre.



Naturally Crush-Resistant

The wool fibre is naturally curly, and it has more crush resistance than any other fibre. Wool carpet fibres recover from crushing better than any other carpet fibres.


Insulator

Wool carpet's natural properties help keep your home cool in summer and warm in winter.

Affordable

Godfrey Hirst is one of the largest wool carpet manufacturers in the world, and provide an exceptional selection of value-priced wool carpets.


Sustainable

Environmentally sound, wool is produced from a totally renewable resource – grass – that is shorn from Sheep every 9 – 12 months.

Natural Flame Retardant

Wool carpets are naturally flame retardant because of its high protein content. If ignited, wool only burns weakly, limiting the spread of the flame.


Improves Air Quality

Wool carpet naturally improves the indoor air quality of your home. It stabilizes relative humidity by absorbing or releasing moisture during periods of high or low atmospheric humidity. If well maintained, it absorbs and neutralizes airborne particles and fumes.

Proven

Wool has been used in carpeting for centuries. Its unique natural properties have seen it stand the test of time as the premier flooring.

Wool is the luxury carpet fibre. It probably holds the most advantages over all fibres. So to summarize what distinguishes wool is that it has more advantages such as being all natural, more comfortable, fire resistant, and arguably is as durable as other floorings like nylon, but it requires more care. Typically, nylon and Smartstrand carpets take whatever you throw at them: spills, moving furniture, and constant foot traffic.

Creating a Family-Friendly Dining Room

A Family-friendly dining room that works for casual and formal gatherings is a great update for households that like to entertain. Paying attention to the details and focusing on how the space will be used can lead to a space that feels comfortable enough for a family gathering and formal enough for a dinner party.


Learn more about this beautiful and versatile space and get some great tips how to create your own family friendly dining room in this interview with designer William MacDonald!

BDMS: What were your clients’ needs for this space?

William MacDonald: They wanted the space to be light and airy family-friendly and with enough seating space for extended family events.

BDMS: Were there any challenges to designing this space?

WM: Initially I had plans for a carpet but leaving the carpet out provides a sense of the casual easiness with a lot less maintenance.

BDMS: Do you have any special considerations or requirements when creating a dining room?

WM: Yes absolutely I like dining rooms that have very comfortable seats, no benches! And various sources of light for example pot lights a central chandelier, picture lights etc. I also like a big dining room that allows people to move around easily.

BDMS: How does the flooring play into your design?

WM: The flooring is a great part of the overall design after all it is the fifth wall. And in dining rooms I prefer elegant easily maintained floors ...and floors that allow for chairs to easily move back-and-forth.

BDMS: What makes this room functional?

WM: This room is made functional buy the use of the built-in sideboard and storage, it has three points of entry and is located next to the kitchen via a butler's pantry. The table is also expendable and can seat 18 people.

BDMS: Why did you choose these colors?

WM: I wanted to create a calm, serene and elegant space that could work both casually and formally and for day or night. So using shades of white gray and brown makes sense as it ticks all of those boxes.

BDMS: What is your favorite aspect of this room?

WM: My favorite aspect of this room is the architecture - the moldings and the internal windows that provides drama and character. Also the chandelier -  it's very unique and acts as a wonderful focal point for the room.

BDMS: What did you client like the most?

WM: That's a good question I asked my client and she said it was impossible to answer as she loved the design I created, but she said the thing she likes the most was how she felt in the room..."at home." As a designer this is the ultimate complement.
