Royal Thai Carpet Transforms Floridian Landscape

Located in Central Florida, the beautiful Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center is a 4-star Marriott property offering a one-of-a-kind guest experience only minutes from Orlando’s star attractions. 
With such amenities as nine award-winning restaurants and bars, a world-class spa, four and a half acres of lush indoor gardens and over 500,000 square feet of flexible meeting space, it was an easy choice for BLUR Workshop to trust Royal Thai to design and manufacture the 28,000 square yards of custom Axminster carpet for the public space and corridors. Alongside unmatched design clarity, Axminster’s woven three-dimensional strength makes it the perfect choice for the high-traffic interiors of a resort + convention center space.

The Atlanta-based design studio, Blur Workshop worked closely with the Royal Thai team to build an interior scheme inspired by the local Floridian flora and fauna while also working with the interiors existing elements. Mixed in a sea of blues and greens, the results speak for themselves. The pre-function space features a soft fading turquoise hue, guiding guests into the grand ballroom, where geometric elements are echoed from ceiling panels to floor creating a cohesive interior experience. Smaller meeting rooms see abstracted leaves floating in earthy greens and neutrals while similar shades are carried through in simplistic textural Axminster throughout the rest of the property's public spaces.
Royal Thai was able to take a very large job, make it manageable and keep us moving through the design process to deliver on time. Their designers helped us create carpets that spoke to the overall architecture and interiors but also give the guest a sense of place. The owners could not have been more pleased. As are we.” — Foreman Rogers, Principal, BLUR Workshop
