Amazing Axminster Norsk mid-century Scandinavian style 1960's atomic era woven wool shag pile carpet.. A high quality British made full wool carpet in a modernist/futurist/atomic era design.The pattern of strong central blue form contrasts with the outer pale areas which have subtle concentric rings of colour. These carpets were made to last if treated well and i believe we have done. This comes from a smoke and pet free home. We are the second owners having been given it by my partners parents about 5 years ago.. We love it but have recently refurbished our home and had new carpets laid. Size: 11 x 8 feet. Overall for the age of the carpet, it is in good order with some minor marks.. The yellow mark on the back is the residue of some glue our a dopey tradesman left for us but doesnt show through and is superficial to the back only. Some light wear to shag pile but it probably just needs a good brush up rather than loss to pile.
We live by the beach and my husband is a carpenter so you may find the some grains of sand or the odd wood chip deep down. It is recommended you dont hoover these type of carpets but we regularly beat it from behind and sweep it with a soft brush on top.
You may decide you want to get it professionally cleaned as new owners but please be careful who you choose to carry out this, if you choose to do it.. A high pressure steam clean will make the natural dyes run.. So it needs a dry clean type carpet service..(PLEASE ALSO USE PICTURES AS A CONDITION GUIDE).
