Bedrooms and meeting rooms within Scotland’s five-star Gleneagles hotel are now adorned with bespoke woven carpet from Wilton Carpets Commercial.
Selecting a nine-row axminster for a combination of durability and a luxurious underfoot feel, Greyline Design worked with Wilton Carpets to create two designs, both with a subtle indigenous quality, but without the rather popular inclusion of Scottish tartans.
Using a colour palette of heather, silver and green tones – inspired by the hotel’s outstanding natural surroundings – the carpet achieves a patriotic outlook in the bedrooms through use of a stylised thistle motif.
In the suites and meeting rooms, meanwhile, a bespoke crackled design reminiscent of Scotland’s rugged lanscape has been used in gentle, neutral tones.
Across both designs, a total of 2000m² of bespoke nine-row axminster was installed. Woven on Wilton Carpets’ performance axminster looms from a blend of 80% wool and 20% nylon, these designs deliver durability and appearance retention – key considerations in light of the capacity crowd expected for the Ryder Cup later this year.
