    One of Yorkshire’s finest luxury hotels now bears bespoke creations from Axminster Carpets Commercial.

    Created especially for Rudding Park, a country hotel, spa and golf course that is situated in parkland on the outskirts of Harrogate, fine bespoke carpet now treats guests to sumptuous underfoot comfort in bedrooms and a quieter more pleasant atmosphere throughout the corridors of the 91 bedroom award-winning venue.Nigh on 1,800m2 of 4.57m wide eight-pitch six-row Axminster woven carpet is now fitted throughout guestrooms, matched to over 400m2 of durable Super 8 carpet throughout corridors which uses the same bespoke colour palette.

    “We based the bespoke pattern for Rudding Park on traditional elements and played with their scale and colour to give a more contemporary look,” explains Interior Designer, Claire Horsley “the ultimate aim was to create a carpet that blended older parts of the house with new build elements.”

    The carpet within the corridor uses a traditional damask pattern scaled to oversize proportions and with a modern colour palette, while the bedrooms feature a contrasting geometric grid laid over a tonal stripe that creates the look of a jute weave. Axminster Carpets were one of the few manufacturers to be able to weave the bedroom carpets in a 4.57m width for seamless installation.

    “We had worked with Axminster before and had no hesitation in using them once againfor Rudding Park,” continues Claire, “The design team worked hard to meet our exacting brief and the carpets have met with approval from both the client and residents at the hotel, with some even asking where they could buy the carpet.”

    The carpets made for Rudding Park used a high performance blend of 80% wool and 20% nylon and were manufactured in Axminster, Devon from yarn spun at Axminster Carpets Spinning Division, one of the last remaining manufacturer-owned spinning facilities in the UK. This enables Axminster Carpets to control every stage of the carpet supply process and provide a quality of carpet befitting of such venues as the prestigious hotel, spa and golf club.
