Elegant Axminster for Ramside Hall Hotel
Elegant bespoke carpet from Axminster Carpets Commercial now covers the floors of the exclusive Ramside Hall Hotel in Durham, adding a sophisticated flourish to the venue’s lavish ballroom and luxury Pemberton Suite function room.
500m2 of bespoke Axminster in the best possible quality 8 x 10 row is laid in the ballroom, with 160m2 of another bespoke design in the Pemberton Suite. Van Page Carpet and Flooring Specialists laid both carpets. As Helen Roseberry, Director of Ramside Hall Hotel explains, “both the ballroom and the Pemberton Suite are busy areas with a variety of uses, and the previous carpets, having lasted for 15-20 years, were showing signs of wear. It was therefore imperative that the new carpets chosen offered fantastic levels of durability, while still harmonising with the hotel’s spectacular location and traditional architecture.”
The bespoke carpet that now graces the ballroom is a bold scroll design in a subtle mixture of soft beige and dark chocolate that perfectly complements the pale walls and soft furnishings, and was designed by Helen herself. As Helen explains, “I had a specific colour palette in mind when choosing the carpet for the ballroom in order to create an opulent environment, as this area is used for important formal events such as weddings. I worked closely with the Axminster design team, merging my own designs with their creative talents before choosing the final carpet, which truly does give the ballroom a fresh and modern feel while still retaining a sense of grandeur.”
Interior design company Space ID were chosen by Helen to refurbish the entire Pemberton Suite, a public lounge room that adjoins the main bar area of the hotel. Open for breakfast right through until late at night, when it is used as an area for visitors to relax and converse, the Pemberton Suite has a high footfall and therefore requires resilient carpet. Space ID designed the carpet used here, choosing a contemporary floral design in dark colours that complements the dark brown furniture. Complementing the carpet in the main bar, this bespoke Axminster helps to create the harmonious look that runs throughout the hotel’s interior.
“Both rooms now look stunning,” enthuses Helen. “The Pemberton Suite is arguably the busiest room in the hotel, used from dawn until dusk, and the new carpet gives it an up-to-date look. The patterned nature of both carpets is also something is very appealing – not only because it looks beautiful, but because pattern will also hide the tell-tale signs of wear and tear that are inevitable in busy locations.
Both bespoke carpets have an 80/20 construction, with the heavy wool content giving the superior levels of durability and resilience that Ramside Hall Hotel requires.
Ramside Hall Hotel is one of the finest luxury hotels in County Durham. Featuring 80 individually decorated bedrooms and a number of deluxe suites, Ramside Hall Hotel is set in beautiful grounds.
