As we continue to serve countries around the world with one-of-a-kind installations and visuals, here are three of our favorite stateside projects:
Moshulu – Philadelphia, PA
Can you imagine a luxurious dining experience at a floating restaurant set inside a historic ship? Inspired by unique dining abroad Ralph Lauren’s personal yacht, Moshulu restaurant at Penn’s Landing on the Delaware River delivers unforgettable meals in a truly breathtaking setting!
Tarkett Hospitality was honored to create the richly hued custom carpet that enhanced the dining room renovation completed by Barbara Balongue of Balongue Design. Using Tarkett Hospitality’s Digital Dye Injection (DDI) technology that can incorporate up to fourteen colors, radiant shades of purple, orange, and pink pair with white and black in a varied pattern inspired by the brilliant colors found in coral reefs.
Along with Mermaid-inspired wallcoverings and a gold and black marble captain’s dining table, the high-precision printing paired with Tarkett Hospitality’s luxurious tufted broadloom to produce a swirling, eye-catching carpet that completed the amazing space. With incredible views, spectacular décor, and some of the city’s most acclaimed dishes, Moshulu features award-winning contemporary American cuisine and offers its guests one of the most spectacular dining experiences in the entire city.
7 Cedars Hotel – Sequim, WA
With an over 100-year legacy within Washington State’s Olympic Peninsula, the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe owns the 7 Cedars Hotel and Casino in Sequim, WA through Tribal and Resort Enterprises. Tarkett Hospitality had the honor of being selected by design firm Rice Fergus Miller to craft the custom carpet for one hundred hotel guest rooms that celebrate the heritage of the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe.
Before guests reach their hotel rooms, the thoughtful hotel design and architecture pay tribute to the history, beauty, and authenticity of the community’s natural surroundings. In fact, each floor of the 7 Cedars Hotel is themed with a specific natural element to reflect the beauty of the Pacific Northwest and the richness of the tribe’s culture.
Using Tarkett Hospitaliity’s superior custom carpet technology, the collaborative efforts with Rice Fergus Miller produced custom carpets to visually express the history, reverence, and emotional connection the Jamestown Tribe has with nature. This included consulting with Tribal Council Chairman/CEO Ron Allen to learn about the tribe’s 2,000-year tradition of cedar hat weaving.
By loaning several cedar hats from his personal collection, Allen helped illustrate how the hand-woven and painted hats beautifully expressed the Jamestown Tribe’s respect for nature and provided the perfect inspiration for the custom carpet. The cedar-hat-inspired design was then expanded to incorporate coordinating patterns that used the individual elements of water, trees, and sky specifically assigned to each floor.
Four Seasons Hotel – Chicago, IL
For Kim Drautz, President of Tarkett Hospitality, one of her favorite installations almost didn’t come to fruition. While a pandemic surged in 2020 and shook the hospitality industry with travel restrictions and uncertainty, many design firms were eager to see what the next move would be for their upcoming projects. Waiting with the rest of the Tarkett Hospitality Design Team to see if the Chicago Four Seasons Hotel installation would receive the green light, Drautz hoped they would get the chance to work with one of her favorite clients:
“Maybe that’s why it’s so special and that it still happened. We were kind of waiting to see if it was going to install and open per schedule” Drautz recalls. “ The Four Seasons is a franchise that is based out of Toronto, Canada and it is one of the most brilliant franchise companies that we work with. They have a design philosophy that is second to none. They have very high standards. They create designs with us, and this stands out in particular because of the large-scale patterns that are in the property both in the ballroom and multiple breadths, down to the grand staircase to the borders that border it.”
