Providing a dedicated and inspirational place for designers and industry specialists within the hospitality and leisure sectors, the North West Design Centre is showcasing the creative power of Wilton Carpets Commercial with a stunning first floor installation more akin to art than carpet.
As a creative hub and materials resource for the hospitality and leisure industry, the North West Design Centre is a melting pot of high-end interior inspiration, featuring furniture, lighting and flooring from some of the most exciting and exclusive brands operating in the industry today. Now an associate of the North West Design Centre, Wilton Carpets Commercial enjoys preferred supplier status for interiors developed through the facility.
Working in tandem with interior design practice Gerald Bowering Associates and the North West Design Centre, Wilton Carpets Commercial developed a bespoke design in a performance mix of 80% wool 20% nylon, using inspiration from previous designs produced for luxurious hospitality environments such as those at the Glasgow Grand Central Hotel.
“We chose the first design to come from Wilton’s design manager, Julie Robertson,” comments Samantha Savage, Gerald Bowering Associates, designers in residence at the North West Design Centre. “Using subtle and timeless colours, we thought it exactly the sort of look we want to achieve at the centre and that it would appeal to the clientele, namely architects and designers. The carpet will help to showcase the creativity and flexibility of what Wilton Carpets Commercial can achieve.”
With an extensive back catalogue of bespoke work, as well as the Flexiweave and FastTrack concepts, Wilton Carpets Commercial specialises in delivering to hospitality and leisure environments beautiful high quality woven carpets, manufactured in the UK. Along with a collection of tufted carpets for use in less demanding applications such as guestrooms, Wilton Carpets Commercial can provide a carpeting solution for any hospitality environment.
“The North West Design Centre is far more than a regional hub for the industry, it works on a national basis to deliver designers and specialists a unique opportunity to witness the very latest in material innovation for the hospitality sector,” comments Stefan Heins, Wilton Carpets Commercial. “Being involved within the space helps us to showcase the creative potential in our carpet, aligning us with other inspirational brands and proving that carpet can be one of the most motivating and thought provoking surfaces within any hospitality interior.”
