Kelmscott Library, WA

The renovation of the Kelmscott Library in Perth, Western Australia is a wonderful example of how clever carpet choice defines a space and reinforces the interior design.

In this colourful case study, a blend of contemporary and modern styling creates a stunning, bright and inspiring community space.

Circular ceiling cut-outs are referenced in the carpet below whilst the furniture shape and colour compliments the interior. Timber room dividers help define zones. Feltex Education Tiles with grey, black and white lettering are used to define study and computer zones.

Rainbow Carpet Tiles from Godfrey Hirst are used to enliven reading spaces. Large circles in green and blue for the general library and bright red and orange for the kid zones. Modern furniture such as egg chairs, occasional chairs and cubed poufs reference the carpet colour as do shelving cut outs and artistic book category banners.

The kids zone is almost like a Play School set with large orange circle inside a red circle with bright leather circular bench seats and bright matching leather poufs spelling out the letters READ.

Neutral carpet tiles in dark grey are then used to ground the space along with white and beech timber chairs and table tops to compliment black shelving.

Playful, contemporary design is being used more and more to invigorate community spaces. Talk to your Account Manager about how carpet can add colour and personality to your next commercial interior.
