Welcome to the Calderdale Carpets blog! Here you will find everything from the latest exhibitions and shows to the latest design trends.
I was lucky enough to visit this exhibition on Tibor Reich at the Whitworth Gallery, Manchester. It shows in some detail his life works and explores the method behind his ideas. I found the exhibition really inspiring as some of his techniques I used myself in my own university projects.

Last month, I went to visit the wonderful city of Barcelona. I was inspired by its culture, street performers and amazing architecture, not to mention the tapas and sangria!During my stay, there was a music festival across different venues all over the city. The atmosphere was really exciting.
I was fortunate to recently visit the beautiful Greek island of Santorini. If you've never been I would highly recommend this charming place! The rocky landscape is covered with pathways and steps snaking up down and around the island.
Flicking through the latest Elle Decoration magazine whilst having a green tea break. I came across this really fabulous wallpaper. Firstly I dreamed of laying in the enormous bath pictured with a large vino starring at this amazingly painted wallpaper whilst wondering how luxurious the rest of the house is.
The entries are in for this years Restaurant and bar design awards and we've been checking out the competition. We have to say there's some pretty cool design work been going on if only our job was to go visit them all :-)
After all the cold weather and grey skies, we thought we’d create a blog post to brighten up our day and get us in the mood for spring!
