Lapworths, then owners of the Wilton carpet factory, supplied high-quality hand-knotted Axminsters for all the main rooms at Brodsworth. The elaborate design, vibrant colours and sheer size (over 10 metres long) of the drawing room carpet made it the most expensive, at £367 and 10s . It was made in two main sections to fit the plan of the room, and described in Lapworths’ bill as ‘Extra Superfine Real Axminster Carpets to special Design, Italian scrolls ornament and flowers’.
