“Exceptional” is a word close to the heart of the team at Albyns, the London-based property specialist that has made its name by taking the finest of buildings in the capital’s most desirable locations and turning them into stunning homes.

Developing and delivering properties that meet clients’ highest expectations requires exceptional attention to detail at every stage and to every element of a project, from redesign to rebuilding to fine tuning every detail of lighting, colour schemes and furnishing.

So it’s no surprise that Albyns works only with the most highly skilled craftsmen and proven suppliers – a carefully selected group of professionals who value their clients as highly as Albyns does itself.

For the last couple of years, that group has included Borderline Carpet Planning Services, a relationship that developed following a recommendation to Albyns from an interior designer contact.

Albyns has since worked regularly with the company, including on projects involving products from the SYLKA™ range – incorporating the NuSilk™ fibre system that gives carpets the look and feel of silk, while making them exceptionally hard-wearing – which is distributed exclusively in the UK by Borderline.

A spokesperson for the company said: “Quality is the biggest issue we have with carpets – all the properties we work on are high-end houses, in areas like Chelsea and Kensington, and the carpet quality has to match.

“Borderline offers us an excellent service. The team there delivers the quality we are looking for, as well as meeting our timeframe and price criteria.

“They’re flexible and professional and give us the speedy, efficient response we need – and they are also nice people to work with.”
