“What is most valuable to us with ICE, beyond their incredible level of know-how, is that they care. Their attention to detail, like ours, is extremely high. When projects force us to step out of a certain comfort zone, to explore unexpected aspects, we know that they will be there, ready to answer, precisely, helpfully, and carefully.” Bruno Moinard and Claire Betaille – Moinard+Bétaille, Paris

For the Cala di Volpe Hotel Sardinia interior designer Mr. Bruno Moinard wanted to translate his refined water-paintings into rug designs. Mr Moinard shared his paintings with the ICE design team and after discussing his ideas, the ICE team developed a concept design. The biggest challenge was to create a very subtle gradation. Gradation is one of the specialisms of ICE. Together they selected the best colours and materials. Samples were created and soon the production could start. All rugs and carpets for this iconic hotel were delivered and installed on time. 

Dutch family business ICE has specialised bespoke handmade rugs and fitted carpets. They supply to 5* hotels, royal Middle East palaces, residences, private aircrafts and superyachts.  Their offices can be found in Dubai, New York and Paris. In April ’21 ICE opened their new headquarters in Zaltbommel, the Netherlands. Interested to get in touch? Please visit www.rugs.nl or drop an e-mail at info@rugs.nl
