Spoon’s carpets: Proof that no two are the same

We’ve all been to Wetherspoon’s. But have you ever looked down at the carpet?

Kit Caless has, and now he’s even made a book about them.

After the success of his Tumblr blog Wetherspoon’s Carpetsa documentation of every Wetherspoon’s carpet in the country, the book Spoon’s Carpets: An Appreciation will be released next month.

You may think the vile 80’s carpets that decorate the pub chain’s floors are just for hiding spilled drinks and vomit, but you are wrong. According to Wetherpoon’s, “All of our new pub carpets are individually designed, some with details to reflect aspects of the buildings’ history or local area.”

Through Kit’s Tumblr site, it’s also become clear than no two Spoon’s carpets are the same.

Seriously?

Yep.

Still not convinced? Here are just some of the carpets you’ll find in Kit’s book (which, let’s face it, is bound to be a best seller).

So next time you go for Steak Club Tuesdays, make sure you check out your unique local Spoon’s carpet. We bet you’ve never noticed the reflection of the building’s history.

Then again, maybe it is just a vile 80’s carpet covered in spilled pints and vom.
