The Story

Every year since it opened in 1856, Claridge’s has continued to innovate and inspire. The latest refurbishment continues that tradition, with Ulster Carpets creating custom carpets and rugs to match the luxurious standards of this iconic hotel.

Set in the heart of Mayfair, Claridge’s is an English institution and an art deco landmark loved by movie stars and statesmen, fashion designers and global dignitaries.

Such is the stature of Claridge’s that any reimagining attracts the world’s best interior designers. Ulster has proudly worked on this beautiful hotel before and, on this occasion, our team collaborated with Pierre-Yves Rochon on the fifth and sixth-floor refurbishment and with Blair Associates on the new-look ballroom.

For the suites, differing designs were required to match each style and for this, we created both custom carpets and rugs. From the palatial royal heritage of the Empress Eugenie Suite to the contemporary comfort of Claridge’s King Room, our designers adapted each design to embody the timeless elegance of the hotel.

This has been matched in the corridors, where our bespoke carpets epitomise the sense of flow created by the design.

In the ballroom, the art deco heritage has been retained, and Ulster’s custom carpet design is central to this. Using patented weaving technology, our designers have added a three-dimensional element to a design that radiates the precise and boldly delineated geometric shapes of this style.

The richness of the designs in Ulster’s custom carpets and rugs pays homage to the luxury of Claridge’s. This level of luxury finish is achieved through an innovative manufacturing process that is based on over 80 years’ experience in weaving the highest quality carpets.

The combination of world-class designers and a patented weaving system also ensures that we can manufacture carpets to a greater degree of design intricacy, an enhanced spectrum of colour and at an unrivalled level of efficiency.
