    Contra Curtains Ltd have recently completed the supply of soft furnishings to 106 bedrooms at the latest Base2stay property in Liverpool. The 1850’s industrial building in the Ropewalks area in the centre of Liverpool, with a wide variety of window sizes, floor heights and room types, provided many challenges.Contra supplied lined & interlined Wave curtains to the majority of the hotel bedrooms, in a linen union fabric selected by interior decorator Clarissa Nadler. Other rooms received Roman Blinds & privacy blinds where required. On the ground floor 9 Gallery Studio rooms received Pinch Pleat Lined curtains operating on Silent Gliss electric track systems. These stunning rooms have ceiling heights of approximately 4.6 metres and incorporate an upper gallery sleeping and dressing area. In addition, rooms within the historic roof beams required a purpose built solution for blackout blinds to the large roof-light windows.

    Working in conjunction with project coordinator Dorian Dreyfus of DC Place and the base2stay management team Contra provided expertise and advice from an early stage in the project.

    Having ascertained our client’s requirements Contra project manager Chris Wicks liaised with the project team and ensured that the client’s vision was delivered on time and within budget. The hotel opened ahead of program at the end of July.

    Robert Nadler, CEO of base2stay, commented “ Contra were happy to provide advice at early stages, which assisted with the design process, and despite the changes and challenges that always occur when renovating a historic property, always showed flexibility and imagination. They were a pleasure to work with and we are really very happy with the result”.
