    Luxurious blue carpet from Lano Flooring Solutions now graces the grand staircase at the Royal College of Surgeons of England in London, providing a visually striking look and exceptional quality that befits the building’s historic interior and exterior architecture.Chosen from Lano Flooring Solution’s extensive Walk of Fame collection, which offers the ultimate in design flexibility, the new carpet is a hardwearing and supremely soft11-row axminster.Woven on state-of-the-art Max 63 Van De Wiele looms, the carpet’s 80% wool 20% nylon three ply construction is the best possible quality available that is suitable for commercial, hospitality and leisure use.

    Providing fantastic levels of underfoot comfortfor a lavish feel as well as offering superb resilience, the carpet’s construction also allows for brilliant colour clarity to ensure lasting good looks. Chosen in a deep blue colourway with contrasting gold diamonds, the carpet provides an instant feeling of grandeur and offers the necessary robustness required by this busy stairway location.

    “This grand staircase is in almost constant use, as it is the main access point for our popular Hunterian Museum, which houses an extensive collection of medical specimens and instruments,” explains John O’Riordan, maintenance manager, The Royal College of Surgeons of England. “The previous carpet had become threadbare in places, and it was therefore imperative that the new carpet offered superiorlevels of resilience as well as a luxury feel. Lano Flooring Solutions was my first choice for this project, as its carpets are renowned for not only being exceptionally hardwearing, but also available in classical designs that suit our listed building status. The traditional but eye-catching design and the quality of the end product mean that we now have an easy to clean and luxurious floorcovering that is able to cope with the heavy footfall from our visitors.”

    Fitted by Joe Bergamini of Cottage Flooring Ltd, London, the new carpet is crucially very easy to maintain and can withstand rigorous cleaning without losing the vibrancy of its colour. The Walk of Fame collection by Lano Flooring Solutions offers contractors, designers and specifiers stunning carpet styles combined with outstanding performance qualities in a range of 320 in-stock shades.
