Film and Furniture fans will know the original inspiration for this very website was the hexagonal patterned carpet in The Shining‘s Overlook Hotel film set. The carpet in The Hotel’s corridor features prominently in several key scenes, including young Danny’s first unnerving encounter with room 237 as he investigates on his tricycle. The carpet’s dynamic orange, brown and red colours and mesmerizing graphic pattern leap out at us from the screen, so it’s no surprise that it has become the most iconic carpet’s in film.

The carpet is no longer in general production, but we have been able to source it for you through the manufacturer who holds the official David Hicks license to make this carpet and rugs to the exact original design.
