Trademarked as “the most luxurious ship ever built”, the Regent Fleet Seven Seas Explorer takes luxury to another level. A $450 million, 750 passenger vessel, the ship exudes elegance and glamour and required custom ‘Ulster’ carpet that would complement its exquisite interiors. Working with renowned architectural and interior designers Tillberg Design of Sweden and CallisonRTKL, bespoke axminster carpets were designed and manufactured for the penthouse suites, grand suites, corridors and all public areas.
Arguably the most striking of the designs, the observation lounge presents a bold design of large scale, abstract flowers outlined in gold. The lounge itself echoes old Hollywood glamour and the carpet along with all of the intricate details work in harmony to create an interior fit to compete with the stunning panoramas likely to be found outside the ship. Moving through to the bar area in the observation lounge, the carpet changes to a more distinct art deco pattern designed to tie in with the shapes on the ceiling of the lounge.
Throughout the years Ulster Carpets have established themselves as a leading provider of custom carpets for the marine market and to date have manufactured pieces for some of the most world renowned ships such as the RMS Queen Mary 2 and Crystal Serenity. This latest marine project has been another huge success and Ulster was proud to play their part in the making of this truly remarkable ship.
