Kit Kemp MBE has forged an international reputation as one of the world’s top Interior Designers.
She has a unique approach to her work and is well-known as an author and passionate champion
of British Art, Craft and Sculpture.
As Design Director of Firmdale Hotels PLC she is the creative force behind the hotels, which include London’s
Ham Yard, Charlotte Street and The Soho and New York’s Crosby Street Hotel and The Whitby. Her designs have
been celebrated with many prestigious awards including ‘Condé Nast Best Hotel in the World for Design’.
Kit’s latest collaboration with Wilton Carpets has been to create a Hospitality, Travel and Home collection for both
traditional and modern interiors, interpreting scale and usability with the latest techniques in the market place.
She says, “I have been able to create subtle effects and gradations of colour to give carpets a unique feel, similar
to the finish of a hand-blocked fabric. The new looms at Wilton Carpets have made my ideas a possibility and
with their design input, a joyful reality.”

The Kit Kemp by Wilton Carpets Collection introduces nine exciting innovative new designs.
They are unique and multi-tasking designs suitable for many different interiors. The designs
draw from a diverse array of inspirations from Folklore, Architecture and Botanical motifs.
These come together to create a collection that works in both a traditional and modern way.
Kit Kemp is known for her brave use of colour. This collection is a showcase of her innate
understanding of colour, pattern and scale.
Each made-to-order carpet is woven with a blend of rich British wool and a durable nylon mix
to create designs with lasting resilience to suit any hospitality, travel or special project.
Whether using traditional Axminster or Wilton weaves, or incorporating the added luxury of
a Brussels weave, the Kit Kemp for Wilton Carpets Collection delivers carpet of the finest
design and quality.
Wilton Carpets has been the UK’s spiritual home of carpet weaving for nearly four hundred years.
As one of the world’s finest carpet manufacturers Wilton has created a reputation for fine carpets of
enduring quality, resilience and recovery.
Beside 100-year-old narrow looms still operating today, Wilton Carpets is celebrating innovation with a robotic
high-speed loom that has instant colour switching to enable new techniques to be achieved with unwavering
attention to the principles of fine carpet craftsmanship.
Every carpet that leaves Wilton Carpets has been skillfully made. It encompasses the embodiment of the best
in modern manufacturing blended with traditional craftsmanship. Wilton Carpets brings concepts to life with
accuracy, speed and creativity.
