    With a reputation for delivering high quality IMO certified carpets, it is no wonder that Lano Flooring Solutions has partnered with Pullmantur, the largest Spain-based cruise line company in the world, and supplied over 135,000m2of woven axminster carpets for its fleet over the past six years.One of the most recent collaborations with Pullmantur has resulted in 15,000m2 of striking bespoke carpets gracing the floors of the Empress ship. Covering areas including the main atrium, alleyways, restaurants, casino, children’s area, spa, gym and staterooms, the carpets showcase the best of Lano Flooring Solution’s design ability and offer superior levels of durability and underfoot comfort with a wool-rich blend.

    As Ronnie Wilkie, design executive for Lano Flooring Solutions explains, “Pullmantur approached our experienced design team, asking for custom-made carpets that would create a stylish and eye-catching look for passengers on the Empress. A particular highlight of this project is the carpet in the Schooner Piano Bar; designed with a nautical appeal, its swirling pattern in rich gold and midnight blue also has a musical theme that reflects the area’s use for evening entertainment.”

    Lano Flooring Solutions also provided the artificial grass on the outer decks of the Empress Ship, and recently worked closely with Pullmantur’s marine operations director, Benjamin de Haas, to create 12,500m2 of carpet designs for its sister ship the Sovereign.

    One of the first ever carpet manufacturers to invest in the latest high-tech Van de Wiele axminster looms, Lano Flooring Solutions has forged a long and successful track record of supplying high-performance IMO certified carpet to the growing cruise market.
