Reflecting on our past design travels, we couldn’t help but remember Casa de São Lourenço. This boutique hotel sits at the top of Serra da Estrela at a whopping 4,000 feet. There were many aspects of the hotel we love, like the panoramic views and incorporating local materials such as Burel. Burel is a local wool fabric from the area of Serra da Estrela. The little interior touches are what really make this place a celebration of Portuguese art and design. One of our favorite touches is a constellation of burel wool flowers hanging from the ceiling. The cluster of flowers hangs in the hotel’s restaurant and provides a nice ambiance while looking out over the mountains. In the daytime, you can see the rich dandelion color of the flowers, but at night, the flower shapes light up, warming up the entire dining area. This is what inspired our materials palette with the rose flower carpet. Plus, thanks to the unique burel materials the floral installation even provides acoustical benefits.
Inspired by the yellow burel flowers, we recolored our manganese drop carpet by ege into a flower carpet rose design. Keeping the palette cohesive, we use similar materials such as Otis by Jab, Eco-Cem by COVERINGS ETC, and Velvet by 4spaces. These materials are all in similar peach and light floral tones to match the flower carpet rose. To mimic the darker materials used in Casa de São Lourenço. We used a deep gray metal sheet called Engravings Matrix and paired that with a dark wooden plank from Porcelanosa called Emotions Line Veneer Finishes. To tie all the materials together, we add two different types of leather. A white embossed Foglizzo Leather called Tresse Nubuck, and a metallic gold leather from Townsend Leather called Shimmering Sprinkled Cowhide.
