For a tranquil, nature-inspired ambiance, look no further than Deirdre Dyson’s 2014 themed carpet collection, entitled ‘Designs from the Seashore’. Motivated by Deirdre’s trip to the stunning Archipiélago de las Perlas, near Panama, the collection comprises eight fresh treatments, which conjure up visions of these little-known, enchanting pacific islands. Coral, Golden Stone, SeaWash, Sand Trail and Graphic Pebble were all on display in the DX area of the May Design Series show. Alice Price was also on the stand talking about the growing Commercial and Contracts Division of the business; how they deploy different production methods, such as hand and machine-tufting to suit contract applications. Deirdre Dyson also has the capability to produce colour-graded designs, as seen in SeaWash, to attractive effect. Each Deirdre Dyson carpet is totally bespoke. They can be fitted or free-standing, in any shape or size and from a palette of over 2,000 shades, making every one truly unique. Prices start from £725 per square metre (100% wool).
