Cotton Exchange, Liverpool
Client: BruntwoodType of works: Scape carpet tile specified for use in show suite.
Over 300m2 of Dessos stunning loop-pile carpet tile Scape has provided the finishing touch for the show suite within the Cotton Exchange in Liverpool, which now provides prime office accommodation. The beautiful Grade II Listed Cotton Exchange was purchased by property developer Bruntwood last year and is now undergoing an extensive internal refurbishment scheme to provide over 200,000 sq ft of high quality office space at the heart of Liverpool's financial and business centre.
Scape, part of Dessos Carpetecture Pure Lines collection, was the ideal choice for this environment. Taking its reference from the weave patterns of hand-driven looms, whose lines seem to be regular and systematic but also express variation and individuality, Scape translates the theme of the architecture of this unique building. Specified in a Light Brown colourway, the flooring adds warmth which complements the interior.
Michelle Cowin, interior designer for Bruntwood, who worked on the scheme commented: The initial project brief was to create a show suite within the Cotton Exchange to highlight the potential of the building in the best possible way. In addition to meeting the project budget, Scape works well with the original characteristics of the building, without detracting from them. Subsequent suites within the building now feature this carpet tile.
Michelle worked closely with Desso on the specification for the project and had previous experience of working with Desso so knew that they would deliver great customer service.
