Skopos – Hotel Indigo Rome

Interiors mixing up Classical and Contemporary

Caberlon Caroppi Hospitality Design of Milan worked with the local Skopos distributor (Floorings & Fabrics) to rebrand a 5 star Boutique Hotel.  Originally known as the St Georges hotel, the property was moved to the Indigo brand, under the IHG Franchise.



The rooms were designed by Caberlon Caroppi to each have individual character and personality reflecting a feel of the local neighbourhood in Rome.  Inspiration was taken from the great High Renaissance architect, Donato Bramante and famous Baroque artist Caravaggio.  The 60’s Italian design icon, legendary Fiat 500, was used to blend with the classical details. The designer wanted to furnish the rooms with fabrics that contrasted with iconic architecture and design elements and create a contemporary twist.

The end result is a stunning mix of modern interiors, historic architecture and art of ancient Rome.

Skopos supplied the geometric design Chase from the Erddig & Elle collection in 3 colours for bed-throws and cushions.  The Geometric pattern of the Chase design (printed onto luxurious velvet) fitted the ‘Contemporary/Classic’ brief perfectly.  Beau velvet and Alto Taffetta were provided in complimentary and contrasting colours.  Skopos also supplied 2 colours of Poise faux leather for the upholstered stools, creating an interesting mix of textures and layers.
