Film and Furniture In the Press: Fabric on The Shining rugs and runners

Fabric magazine epitomizes smart London living – celebrating the people, the place and the lifestyle, so we’re very happy to have been featured in the December issue.

In their article “On Repeat” Fabric highlights the fact there’s a new mood in wallcoverings and soft furnishings for autumn/winter, going on to say: “An appetite for bold prints and daring colourways replaces neutral schemes, while Mid-century-inspired motifs add retro charm. When it comes to pattern and print this season, fortune favours the brave”.

The main focus of this article is all about our beloved and officially licensed The Overlook Hotel The Shining rugs, runners and carpet.

fabric magazine spread the shining carpet“As patterned carpets are enjoying a renaissance, film buffs with an eye for design can take the woven geometrics trend a step further (if they dare). Lifted from Stanley Kubrick’s seminal horror The Shining, Film and Furniture presents an officially licensed reproduction of David Hicks’ iconic carpet, which contributed hugely to the movie’s disquieting visual style. The custom-made hand-tufted rug features a maze of interlocking hexagonals in red, orange and brown – just like those in the corridors of the Overlook Hotel – and is a thing of modernist beauty, even if it may strike fear into the hearts of your house guests” says Fabric.

Hand-delivered each month to north and central London’s finest addresses (and available for download), Fabric magazine and website provides the ultimate guide to making the most of life in central London and north of the river – from the latest cultural events to the best restaurants, bars, boutiques and beauty treatments. Luxury property listings provide a through the keyhole look at some of the area’s most desirable addresses, expert market news, views and advice.
