ULSTER EMBODIES THE MAJESTIC MISSISSIPPI
The interior design of The Westin New Orleans Canal Place – a Marriott Bonvoy hotel – uses patterns, colours, textures and forms to create a visually pleasing and comfortable environment for Westin hotel guests to experience.
Moncur Design Associates, Inc. in Toronto, Canada designed the interiors as part of a $30 million renovation for The Berger Company. The design references the hotel’s location by the majestic Mississippi River and embodies the charm of the city of New Orleans and its vitality, history, culture, architecture and natural beauty.
Ulster worked closely with Moncur Design Associates, Inc. from a detailed design brief to design and manufacture carpet that realised their design vision. Ulster provided carpet for the lobby, the lobby bar, the ballroom, prefunction areas, meeting rooms and guest room corridors.
Ulster’s designers utilised a common colour bank to create custom carpets that, much like the Mississippi River, provide continuity and natural flow throughout the hotel. The darker tones and fretwork design in the lobby spaces transition to lighter shades and flowing patterns in the meeting spaces. Both areas are distinctive in their own right, yet the overall colour palette, detailing and addition of accent colours enhance the hotel’s signature style.
Ulster take pride in the long-term relationships they have built up with customers over many years and the Westin New Orleans Canal Place is the perfect example of this, representing the latest successful project between Ulster, Moncur Design Associates Inc. and The Berger Company.
