Brintons and Virginia Langley Launch Newest Collaboration: Ciranda Collection
Brintons is excited to announce Ciranda , its third Axminster Carpet collection with designer Virginia Langley. A contemporary application of rhythm in design, Ciranda, takes influence from the vivacious & hypnotic movements of traditional Brazilian dance. With freestyle brush strokes & bold painted textures, Virginia has simulated these rhythmic dances into expressive patterns.
“I’ve been designing for Brintons for over a year now and I am thoroughly enjoying being part of such a dynamic company and team,” says Virginia Langley. “It is wonderful to see my artwork and textures come to life with Brinton’s Axminster carpet. There are so many amazing details that I can achieve with their woven products which really shows the high end quality that sets them apart.”
Virginia credits her inspiration for Ciranda to the experience of travelling the world;“ Whether is has been to Europe, the Islands of Fiji, or to South America; the many places I have been fortunate to visit have traditional dancers adorned with flowing fabrics, natural grasses, & sometimes local flora. To me, dance is a time to be expressive & creative by following a rhythm to feel light-hearted & free. I hope these designs bring these feelings & atmosphere everywhere they go,” says Virginia.
This collection, based on the thriving trends of simplistic textural styling, combines organic and industrial silhouettes in dynamic combinations. The result is a modern and sophisticated collection bringing music and dance to Axminster carpet design.
