    AA Restaurant of the Year for Scotland 2012/13, Glasgow’s Rogano, commissioned Lano Flooring Solutions to produce a faithful recreation of a carpet originally found on the Queen Mary cruise liner, built in the Scottish city during the 1930s. Remaining loyal to the previous carpet, Lano Flooring Solutions has supplied 150m2 of 10-row bespoke Axminster for the restaurant. The high-quality construction will ensure durability and appearance retention at Glasgow’s oldest surviving restaurant. Hotel manager, Ann Patterson, explains:

    “The original Queen Mary carpet was designed to deter sea sickness and our replica had become worn and was in need of replacement. We turned to Lano Flooring Solutions as it had the design expertise to copy the pattern and provide a new carpet that was hardwearing and long lasting. The whole process was smooth and I would have no hesitation in working with them again.”

    With its unique 1930s ambience, Rogano opened during the glamour of the Art Deco period and over the last 75 years it has enjoyed a reputation as one of Glasgow’s best restaurants with its chefs dedicating themselves to serving the finest fish and seafood in the Scottish city.

    Lano Flooring Solutions is home to some of the most advanced Axminster looms in the world, helping the manufacturer to create beautiful bespoke carpets such as that installed at the Rogano by McGregor Flooring. Using a performance blend of 80% wool 20% nylon, bespoke Axminster carpets from Lano Flooring Solutions adorn some of the finest restaurants and hospitality venues across the UK.
