Museum of the Home

The Grosvenor Wilton team has supplied custom carpet for the reimagined Museum of the Home’s brand-new Rooms Through Time. The new 1870s parlour tells the story of a Victorian couple preparing for a séance: a meeting at which people try to make contact with the dead. Located in Hoxton, East London, the museum is a place where visitors can explore home and home life from 1600 to the present day.

A Victorian floral watercolour design created in 1846 was chosen from the Grosvenor Wilton archive and served as inspiration for the final carpet design. A point for point copy of the original watercolour was subsequently worked on by our creative studio to prepare the design for manufacture. To recreate the type of Wilton Weave that would have been supplied in the 1840’s, an authentic 69cm wide Worsted Brussels Wilton 10 pitch x 12 row was selected.
