Queen Mary 2
Back in September, Cunard Cruise Lines launched the remastered Queen Mary 2 to rapturous reviews. The iconic ship underwent a £90million refurbishment which took over 8 million hours to complete and included 21,500sqm of bespoke Ulster axminster carpet.
The Ulster carpets were designed and crafted in the UK in conjunction with SMC Design. All of the designs are truly exceptional with many boasting intricate and three dimensional elements. The geometric prints epitomise an era of luxury, sophistication and glamour; sentiments which are evident through the opulent and cohesive decor scheme on board. Although the interiors are inspired by the history and regal heritage of the ship, the ‘Ulster’ carpets bring an element of modernism. The colours were carefully selected to complement the striking designs, with royal reds, golds and deep sea blues flowing under your feet. The most fabulous carpeting feature is without a doubt the retro style ‘starburst’ carpet in the main atrium, which is the show piece of the ship.
