    the sands hotel - rugs

    The Sands Hotel, Margate

    We were asked by Inara Interiors to assist with the production of three custom rugs for the launch of The Sands boutique hotel. Located on the sea front within an immaculately renovated Victorian building the The Sands comprises 20 bedrooms, a restaurant and bar, Ice Cream Parlour and roof terrace. Design Consultant at Inara Interiors Dawn Pirie explains:

    Two traditional designs in a modern palette were specified for the Foyer and Restaurant and a stunning contemporary, shaped design for the The Sands Bar. After a discussion of the project we worked closely with Inara Interiors owner Nick Connington and Design Consultant Dawn Pirie to bring their ideas to fruition; providing colour, tufting samples and advice when needed.

    The rugs were all for high traffic areas so we advised on two densely hand tufted New Zealand Wool weaves for longevity and natural flame retardancy. The design for the Bar featured a distinctive wavy edge, befitting the hotels sea front location for which careful chamfering was recommended to minimise any trip hazard and safeguard the finish of this statement piece. All three rugs were subtly accented with Art Silk to add elegance and a light reflective shimmer and were stain treated to assist with any spills. All were required for the hotels re-launch in May and were delivered well within this deadline.

    "We would highly recommend Rug Couture. The rugs were exactly what we wanted and look fabulous in the hotel. We have had very good feedback from the public." Dawn Pirie, Inara Interiors
