Established in 1956, B.I.C Carpets need no introduction with the B.I.C stone - part of the permanent design collection at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. The Belgium house weaves its carpets using the Wilton technique - the contemporary form of this age - old craft can produce complex designs with various finishes, colours and shades. The technique allows for the production of loop-pile or cut pile carpets, or even a novel combination of both. And the technique is not just used for aesthetic reasons; weaving in the threads actually increases the overall strength of the carpet, thus making the fibers more resistant to damage over time.
Inspired by the rich scenery and culture of Potugal, Goodrich's Great Discoveries collection of fabrics features strong vibrant blue and green tones as well as delightful coral and warm shades. The fabrics can be used in a wide variety of household applications including curtains and upholstery for seats, and help impart the beauty of the Mediterranean into the home.
To pamper the soles, Goodrich's signature GEFF laminate flooring not only provides a pleasurable subtle glide but boasts fast and convenient installation as well. An average of 800 sq ft can be covered within a day, an advantage for homeowners who prefer to avoid the hassle of sanding or lacquering the floors. The flooring is also high traffic areas. Constructed from the swell-resistant fireboards, the laminate sports all-round edge impregnation that prevents edges from swelling and deforming; and are available in a spectacular range of 11 colours. One can be sure to find a perfect match for a multitude of room designs to complement every look and theme for discerning homeowners.
