We can’t wait to check out Scottish design studio Timorous Beasties’ latest collaboration with Brintons at Clerkenwell Design Week. The launch of the Craigend collection marks ten years since the iconic carpet brand and the Glasgow-based studio first worked together. Taking its name from the street where Timorous Beasties is headquartered, Craigend also references the Old Gaelic word ‘Creag’, meaning rock. The collection features textures, colours and details inspired by natural surfaces underfoot, such as sand dunes, stone moss and lichen. The carpet designs reinterpret these elemental features and bring a sense of the great outdoors into contemporary interiors. During Clerkenwell Design Week, the Timorous Beasties Craigend Collection by Brintons will be presented in a custom-built pavilion designed by London architects Studioshaw. The pavilion will take over St John’s Square throughout the week.
