In a recent refurbishment, the Radisson Blu Hotel, located alongside Ireland’s busiest airport, now has over 500 sqm of bespoke axminster and 5000sqm of tufted carpet for the 150 bedrooms, provided by Wilton Carpets Commercial.
As a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of business and pleasure travel, the 4-star Radisson Hotel in Dublin provides cosy accommodation for high numbers of travellers on their way to and from international destinations. So when refurbishment was required, the hotel turned to the help of JP Glass Interiors and Wilton Carpets Commercial.
For the restaurant and O’Dea’s Irish Bar, two complementing bespoke designs feature graceful intertwined stripes and waves for a welcome, smart appearance.
Designer Bobby Gray from JP Glass Interiors collaborated with the Wilton design team to create the designs: “We based the carpet designs on two eye-catching patterns that I thought would work well with the hotel interiors,’” comments Bobby. “To make the designs suitable over large areas of flooring, we played with scale and colour using elegant and warm hues from the Wilton palette until we had the perfect solution.”
The floor of the O’Dea’s bar is now covered with a dynamic carpet, showing soft lilac and charcoal grey waves underpinned with a vivid black and maroon striped check, giving the appearance of depth. Continuing the flowing theme into the restaurant, an arresting scarlet design greets diners complete with black and white branches fanning across the room, injecting a contemporary edge suitable for Radisson venues and adding a touch of welcoming warmth.
In a sturdy 8-row axminster construction, the jacquard-woven carpets have provided both areas of the hotel with a luxurious finish built to last.
Bobby continues; “For carpets to stay looking good in high traffic areas such as hotel restaurants and bars, they have to be of exceptional quality and Wilton Carpets Commercial have met this brief completely. Brought to life with excellent clarity of colour, the new carpets at the Radisson will look incredible whether it at breakfast, lunch or dinner service.”
