Project: The Fairmont San Francisco | San Francisco CA
Firm: ForrestPerkins | Dallas TX
Our client had requested a timeless design that was unique to The Fairmont San Francisco. They were also concerned with stain management and coverage. Shaw Hospitality Group’s solution-dyed nylon carpet was an excellent option for this reason. We had been inspired by the beautiful gardens that are on site at The Fairmont and the old floral stand that used to be in the entry of the lobby in the 1940s. We took the traditional look of paisley and created a floral pattern with a shadowed effect. The tone-on-tone carpet mixed with the shadowed effect created a subtle texture and soft pattern that ended up being quite dramatic.
Some people use the carpet design as an afterthought or just a texture in the room. In our case, however, we wanted the carpet design to make a statement and tie into the rest of the elements in the room. The carpet pattern relates to the design of the throw pillows in each of the rooms which creates a cohesive design from the bed to the floor, making the floor pattern and overall design vision clear.
