The Alternative Blog

In the making with Margo Selby

From seaside to ticking, stripes never really go out of style. The new Margo Selby Stripes for Alternative Flooring take this classic design staple in fresh directions. We talk to one of our favourite collaborators, the award-winning woven textile designer Margo Selby about her latest collection for Alternative Flooring.

A Bright Future for Wool at Wool Week

Wool Week is always a whirlwind of activity! This year the Wool BnB gave us all a moment to be proud of! It was intended to be a truly creative space showcasing a colourful mix of the potential of wool to make a home comfortable, tactile and visually stimulating. The fabulous flooring in the living areas was provided by Alternative Flooring with Liberty Fabrics collection.

Alternative Flooring and Melin Tregwynt got together at The Campaign for Wool’s first ever Wool BnB. We are now thrilled to welcome Eifion Griffiths (the owner of Melin Tregwynt) to be our guest blogger talking all things cwtch.

Nice to see ewe…at Wool BnB

Alternative Flooring loves wool and we swiftly got into the spirit for Woolly Hat Day, but our highlight of Wool Week was taking part in The Campaign for Wool’s first ever Wool BnB where everything from carpets to cardigans was made of this most natural of fibres.

CELEBRATE Great British Pattern

Wool Week 2015

The wonderful thing about Wool Week is that every year there is always something a little ‘alternative’ about it!

Paris, London

It’s always tricky to pinpoint trends at such a vast show as Maison, Paris. We were overwhelmed by the sheer size of this fair, the number of halls and the endless exhibitors. It takes a few weeks to grasp the full scope of Maison but it’s is a key place to track both emerging and existing trends in product, surface, pattern, shape, colour and material.
