Langhorne Carpet Company Reveals Restored Mill Sign

The 109 year-old red brick exterior of our Wilton Jacquard mill stands tall with a new hand-painted sign. Thanks to our friends at the Vital Signs project of Temple Contemporary, Langhorne Carpets proudly reveals a thoroughly restored company mural along Route 1 in historic Penndel, Bucks County.

The sign now proudly reads:

Langhorne Carpet Company

Manufacturers of the Unusual

The Foundation of Fine Interiors®
Wilton Carpet

Penndel Proud

Since 1930

Langhorne Carpet Company The Morrow family would like to thank Robert Blackson and Sarah Biemiller of Temple Contemporary,  Director of Exhibitions and Public Programs and Assistant Director of Exhibitions, respectively, for including our family-run company among the multi-generational Philadelphia-area businesses who have benefited from Vital Signs. We’d also like to thank painter William Sanders and his team of Lauren West, Justin Phillips, Dan Sanders, and Denise Botcheos, for their exquisite work to re-create a sign Langhorne’s founders would be proud of. Thanks, too, to Mural Arts Philadelphia, co-founder of Vital Signs with Temple Contemporary in 2013, for loaning the scaffolding that allowed the group of talented local artists to complete the 20’-by-40’ mural.

Please join our team and representatives of the Borough of Penndel for an official reveal of the restored sign at 1 p.m. on Thursday, December 1, 2016.
