    Beautiful fabrics can transform any room in a hotel, from drab to delightful. David Harris, MD of luxury fabric specialist Kobe UK, takes a look at some of the different fabrics, textures, colours and patterns on offer today.

    For hotels that want an interior that reflects a chic and contemporary lifestyle choose a palette of rich and neutral tones and go for a collection of sophisticated, luxurious easy-to-care-for, washable fabrics that are ideal for a commercial interior.

    To complement the look go for a palette of soft and sumptuous shades ranging from metallic tones to gentle graceful hues, with distinct and intricate designs of geometric, floral, medallion and trellis patterns.

    Kobe’s Elements collection includes Screen, a 100% polyester flame retardant woven jacquard curtain fabric with shimmering metallic yarns in silver and gold on an elegant satin base. This glamorous fabric is available in seven stunning colours.

    There is also Trapezium which embraces the signature Kobe style. This 100% polyester flame retardant woven jacquard has a soft, supple satin touch and features a modern medallion pattern which can be reversed and is available in eight delicate colours.

    Play around with contrasting colours in the paintwork, furnishings and well-chosen accessories in gold and bronze metallic hues for a touch of glamour or go for contrasting pastel tones.

    For a stunning look for hotels that want to be remembered don’t be afraid to experiment with dark colours to create a mood of mystery as the latest room trends head for drama and elegance. Choose a sumptuous, moody blue, opulent bronze or the fiery glow of red, golden-brown or even daring dark green and go for room high fabrics for dramatic effect.

    Room highs are the stylish, extra wide fabrics for window décor. The fabric is more than 300cm high with the pattern printed or woven horizontally across, making matching patterns and sewing seams a thing of the past.
