Grand Piazza collection, 1002 Del Campo 100 wool carpet from £98 per m2, Riviera Home Today, as one of the UK’s few true handmade carpet companies, Riviera Home continues to use traditional techniques to bring a unique quality to its carpets and rugs. The flatweave loop of Capri is testament to Riviera Home’s craftmanship. Hand-woven from 100% pure new wool with meticulous attention to detail, this carpet has a fabric-like quality more akin to luxury tailoring than a carpet suitable for daily use. Along with company’s sought-after Milano range and the random tip shear of Monaco in lustrous Tencel fibre, it was these fabric-like textures that caught the eye of visitors over the two-days of Design Central North West.
