Quality in Wool and Wool Blend Carpet


Article provided by Feltex

Feltex has always been synonymous with style, design integrity and luxury.
As a leading manufacturer of the finest carpet, Feltex sets the benchmark for quality in wool and wool blend carpets.
When you choose a Feltex carpet you can rely on almost 100 years of manufacturing experience and expertise.

At Feltex, we create carpet designed for and inspired by New Zealand.
Our intentions and ideas for the design of a space is as much about how we create form and order as it is about how we experience the space. 
There are value systems we can use to define essential or naturally occurring elements within a given space, these are the physical aspects such as shape and space, boundaries and edges. 
The very canvas to bring our conceptual thinking. These value systems could embrace principles such as balance, emphasis and focus, contrast, scale and proportion, details, harmony and unity and movement through repetition and rhythm to express our visual intentions.

The admirable talent of interior designers and architects is being aware of the ‘feel’ of a space and responding to empirical information through the senses to sculpt and create a desired experience. 
Not only are we asking “What do you need in your space and how do you move through your life everyday?” 
At Feltex we are also extending a visual conversation to ask “How would you like to feel?” within this space.

Again we see a balancing of analogies and the tension in their comparative similarities - relaxed, invigorated, focused, calm, energised, social or retreating to comfort. 
What is the substance of your innate values of personal space?

At Feltex, we create carpet designed for and inspired by New Zealand.

design principles


One of the first tasks in designing a space is to choose the focal point and then apply your chosen form of balance and the remaining design principles. Remember, a room where everything gets equal import


When things are balanced, everything feels right, and yet even within this 'simple' principal there are three options, radial, symmetrical and asymmetrical balance.

Radial Balance - Items are distributed and arranged around a central point.

Asymmetrical Balance - Different elements with similar weights on opposite axis.

Symmetrical Balance - Used in traditional focused designs, symmetrical balance is the easiest form of balance to apply and can be executed with form or colour.


Rhythm in design is all about creating patterns of repetition and contrast to create visual interest to help move your eye around the room.


Harmony is achieved when all the elements act together to create a unified message. Just as rhythm can create excitement, harmony creates a sense of restfulness.


The ancient Greeks came up with the Golden Ratio - 1.618. Nature seems to repeat this ratio whilst spaces and objects that contain this ratio are thought to be more pleasing aesthetically. The Golden Ratio is a way to create negative space and apply balance, harmony and emphasis. It is the culmination of all the design principals.
