Whether traveling miles for an overnight stay or attending a professional conference for an afternoon, every guest of a hospitality location will remember a unique, impressive space designed to the nines and fit for royalty.
Combining the vast capability of industry-leading innovation, premium materials, and dedicated support with the storied legacy of Britain’s oldest, best known, and most prestigious manufacturer of carpets, Tarkett Hospitality offers custom-tailored Axminster Carpets™ that provide clients with superior beauty, clarity, and longevity in an enduring, luxurious woven construction.
Custom Axminster solutions can be tailored to fit the specific color scheme and needs of any space, are available in 2-ply and 3-ply, and some options feature Sculpt Technology to enhance the carpet with unique multi-level texturing and depth. In fact, any carpet pattern that can be envisioned can become an Axminister construction. These carpets are also available in tiles suitable for all heavy-traffic public applications such as hotels, resorts, and casinos.
Originally selected and purchased by King George III and Queen Charlotte in 1755, Axminster Carpets have spent over 250 years’ worth of high-profile placement in royal palaces, luxury hotels, sports stadiums, and the poshest private residences. With an impressive heritage as the Desso brand and approved supplier to the leading industry brands, Tarkett Hospitality is a world-leading manufacturer of woven Axminster and has provided customers with the finest-quality flooring since 1935.
It starts with premium-grade virgin wool from New Zealand and Europe, the highest-quality wool on the market. In addition to wool fiber being naturally non-allergenic, sustainable, flame-retardant, and repellant of water and stains, the 80% wool yarn used for Axminster carpets has been third-party tested and proven to provide greater appearance retention, stronger resilience to crushing, and an overall reduction in life-cycle costs.
Using the latest technology to create designs with outstanding clarity, precision, and definition, Smart Looms can even weave fields, borders, and out-fills as one piece. This not only minimizes weaving time and eliminates the need for onsite border work and mitering, but also minimizes seams, pattern matching, and waste. Boasting a tighter yarn twist for great pile retention and crush resistance, Axminster carpets provide fast renovation, superior performance, and easy maintenance.
Tarkett Hospitality’s design team then draws wide-ranging inspiration to create fascinating patterns that are not found anywhere else in the industry. All Axminster yarns are blended, spun, and dyed in-house for superior color saturation, and each blank Axminster canvas can feature up to 16 colors per design, with 480 unique colors to choose from, plus 55 unique gray shades.
Maybe your eyes are drawn to the iconic shapes and patterns of the prestigious Bauhaus art school interpreted in the nowHAUS Collection or the celebration of storied textile traditions and craftspeople rooted in Mexico and Central America within the El Alma Collection. These are just two stunning examples of how Axminster weaving technology provides outstanding beauty and crisp renderings of clear, complex patterns that can liven up any space.
After the transformative pattern and carpet are complete, Tarkett Hospitality’s dedicated Axminister project managers offer comprehensive support, including the skill of highly qualified CRI-certified Axminster installers to optimize your installation and provide on-site support, training, and full fleet management.
