Sophistication rules in high-end Christchurch home

Carpet / Tussore
This bold and contemporary new home on the outskirts of Christchurch has great bones and a clean, modernist approach both outside and in.
The owners are huge fans of wool carpet and wouldn't consider having anything else through their bedrooms and living areas, including the dining room. They've always had wool carpet and loved it for its ease of maintenance, warmth and comfort.
Tussore, from Cavalier Bremworth's high end Bremworth Collection was the carpet they chose, based on the easy-care level-loop pile construction that doesn't show footprints and the interest created by the random silk slubbing effect through the carpet.
Tussore is made from 100% New Zealand felted wool, exclusively supplied to Cavalier Bremworth by Radford Yarn in Christchurch. Felting makes the yarn especially durable, and when combined into this low-level loop pile, it works as a sophisticated, family-friendly option that looks great next to both tiles and timber flooring.
