If you’ve wandered past our shop window in the last week or so you may have seen we have a new member of the team joining us and taking pride of place in the display. If you’re yet to notice him-we’ll be surprised if you haven’t-let us explain.
We have welcomed Phinneous the Pheasant to Milners, and Leyburn as a whole. You won’t find any feathers on Phinneous, just gorgeous deep-pile carpet courtesy of Penthouse Carpets!
The idea of creating Phinneous came about when we decided we wanted to showcase some of our favourite British-based brands. We settled on Penthouse, with all of their carpets made right here in the UK and crafted mainly out of British wool.
Charlotte wanted to show off the vibrant colours offered by Penthouse, making the brand a perfect choice in the home no matter what colour scheme you have gone for! She decided that something quintessentially British is what needed to be created, and what better symbol than a pheasant? Especially given our rural location.
And from there, Phinneous was born! We never intended for him to be quite so large but we wanted to make a statement and we think we’ve definitely done that! In total he is 7ft tall and the same wide.
Well done to Charlotte for the hours spent making templates and crafting perfectly cut pieces to make sure everything came together in the perfect jigsaw to create Phinneous.
