Armitage is a village
in England's West Midlands region, bordered by a canal whose waters run dark and cold. Visitors here are wise to seek out one of the old canal bridges, and spend a reflective moment gazing down at the water running silent past the weathered stone.
Great storytellers seem drawn to such places, as if haunted by dreams long past. Too often, however, these stories dwell on the span between shores. We believe the contrary: that the most alluring works draw one down into their depths. Because it is there, against the darkness, that even the smallest threads of hope shine.
The Armitage design takes inspiration from these depths, and the stone of the bridges above them. Black and gray have been blended masterfully to provide an easy, neutral canvas for the hints of copper-orange to emerge from. This results in an elegant, yet solid foundation for any room.
