Madeleine Castaing. David Hicks. Sibyl Colefax. These are just a few of the iconic designers who have embraced narrow loom rugs, a once-beloved construction that’s been largely lost to time. Patterson Flynn is reviving the technique with its Hampton Court collection, working with one of only two mills left in the world capable of turning out these remarkable carpets and rugs which once graced many notable homes and the Orient Express. Produced on complex wooden looms dating to the 1850s, their charming looks belie their incredibly hard-wearing ways (they’re so well made that they are nearly indestructible). Intricate and decorative—a single design can have as many as 40 colors—they can only be made in widths of 27 inches or less, and the lengths are then painstakingly pieced together to create area rugs, decorative borders, stair runners, and wall-to-wall floorcoverings. Done exclusively in wool, the collection features small-scale repeating motifs that lean heavily into archival English designs combined with an updated palette that makes them feel both historic and supremely easy to use.
