    A variety of Lano carpets now adorn the prestigious Roland Garros tennis club in Paris, providing a beautiful and stylish backdrop for the renowned French Open Grand Slam tournament.Chosen by the contractor at Roland Garros, Technique des Sols Appliques, for delivering results in other projects and because of its longstanding reputation for providing quality, high-performance contract carpet, Lano supplied different carpets for three separate areas of the venue.

    A total of 1196m2 of Lano Carpets’ Carve L72 design from the standard stock collection was specified for the exclusive VIP bar and restaurant area, providing sumptuous underfoot comfort for sponsors and esteemed guests. Chosen in an attractive grey colour, the L72 Carve carpet features elegant horizontal wave grooves that create a striking textured look and feel. Matching perfectly with the floor-to-ceiling glass partitions that demarcate the restaurant and bar areas, Carve provides understated glamour and its strong polyamide pile composition is resilient yet soft enough to create an opulent ambience.

    In the busy interview and media rooms, Lano Carpet’s Opera concept was used, offering a strong woven loop pile crafted from the unique recycled Econyl nylon yarn. Ideal for heavy commercial use and able to withstand high levels of footfall, 707m2 of Opera covers these high-impact areas. With its bold plain black base tone and contrasting light silver geometric-style squares, Opera provides depth and interest and is paired beautifully with the all-white interior of the media rooms.

    Lastly, Arena in a dark charcoal grey colour with a coordinating textural dotted pattern decorates the floor of one of the most important areas of Roland Garros, the reception and office of the president of the FFT (Federation of French Tennis). With direct access onto the Court Suzanne Lenglen, Arena offers a fantastic contrast to the rich orange clay of the tennis courts. With exceptional underfoot comfort and a contemporary yet timeless design, Arena works seamlessly in both office and meeting rooms. A tufted 1/10” cut and loop pile, Arena is suitable for general commercial use and combines softness and strength.
