Trendboard 2016- Abstract II Focus

We continue to the theme of ‘Abstract’ textures and patterns, with a range of materials from BCFA members featuring some of the most innovative prints.

Abstract 2.1

D123 D 1

Distressed, peeling paint and textured abstract painterly effects, often inspired by nature, are creating beautiful backdrops.

There are still lots of greys, livers, minks and warm greys – and teals which have become notably more blue biased with deep pacific tones.

Ulster-DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel London_Lobby_area

Ulster Carpets are delighted to have been involved in the recent refurbishment of Hilton Rotherhithe since its re brand by Double Tree Hilton. Working closely with ICA London, Ulster have produced a complementary array of bespoke designs for the public areas, corridors and guestrooms.

As London’s last dry dock and located close to the historical ‘Port of London’ Rotherhithe’s design was clearly inspired by London’s trade routes with a strong focus on a navigational theme. Using Ulster’s innovative PSYLO™ technology our London based designers were able to create delicate layers of colour, texture and pattern to achieve this.
