Rug Rapture

The demand for Tretford Cord Carpet in a rug format has been driven by architects/designers who could see the exciting potential for Tretford as a design solution and has become a strong and emerging market.

Gibbon Group have responded to the demand for Tretford Rugs in a made-to-order program where designers have capitalized on one of Tretford’s great features in a rug format with the potential to produce virtually unlimited lengths. This has resulted in numerous large format rugs spanning lengths to 15 metres and longer. 

The finished product does not require any binding which cleverly eliminates the visual distraction of a bound edge and the construction and finish comes with the Tretford warranty.

Being a linear product, Tretford rugs have often been designed in exciting stripes but its design potential is not limited with Tretford’s ability to be cut in any direction without fraying – designs can be hand-cut or water-jet cut to suit.

The Tretford Rug Program also collaborates with the talented design team at Koskela in Sydney to produce custom rugs and offer their invaluable service to Gibbon Group clients at no added cost.  Their design experience plus appreciation of Tretford’s idiosyncrasies has resulted in some stunning outcomes (e.g. Prime Minister’s Department Canberra). 

Tretford Rugs have emerged as a growing market in the design world that offers exciting options for the decorative interior finish.
