Heimtextil Blog der Messe Frankfurt

In redesigning the interior of Landhaus Wachtelhof, the orientation was towards the colours of a quail’s egg: plenty of beige and brown, always in a natural look.

The rooms and bathrooms were to be designed to give a friendlier, brighter and cosier effect, while at all times respecting the classical built-in wooden units of solid pine. To meet the high standards of the hotel and its guests, individual carpet patterns, furniture and lights had been designed. Materials such as wood, leather, natural stone, brass and a carpet designed by an illustrator and printed by Vescom, assisted the overall luxurious impression.

Sustainability plays a major role overall for this privately run 5-star boutique hotel located in the little town of Rotenburg between Bremen and Hamburg. The restaurant, for instance, works with regional and seasonal ingredients. Lighting has been optimised to energy-conservation mode. For our firm it was obvious to work with recycled materials.

Depending on requirements, the textiles in a hotel must be flame-retardant. This can now be combined with the goals of sustainability, since there are flame-retardant filament yarns, based on recycled PET bottles. In our practice, however, sustainable also means choosing a textile which is as hard-wearing as possible, which can be well maintained, and which does not go quickly out of fashion. Then you won’t need to refurbish again so quickly.
