Putting the rug back under iconic brand

Carpet-making skills built up in Connemara that were nearly lost are attracting
attention in London on the back a new luxury range.

FOR NEARLY four decades, McMurray Carpets, based in Moyard in Connemara, supplied embassies, banks, luxury yachts and hotels worldwide with intricately designed, high-quality creations. Today, the company, renamed Connemara Carpets, is back in action after a two-year gap, travelling to London recently to exhibit during London Design Week, the hub for top international designers. The Moyard carpets of the company’s earlier chapter travelled far, even into the world of Middle Eastern riches, furnishing palaces in Bahrain, Abu Dhabi, along with those held by the Saudi royal family in Riyadh and Jeddah.

"Having achieved my lifelong ambition to own a house in Connemara, 'nothing but the best' was my aim whilst furnishing the property. Naturally this meant a feature rug from Connemara Carpets. The company could not have been more helpful throughout the design and manufacture process and the resulting carpet is now the focal point of my living room. For quality, design and service Connemara Carpets are unsurpassed and I have no hesitation in recommending them wholeheartedly."
