Why this Italian luxury supplier is one to watch

16 March 2023 • Written by Laura Nicholls for Luxury Carpet Studio

After just a decade, Luxury Carpet Studio is already a key supplier for many fashion houses, hotels, resorts and several of the world’s key shipyards. Many superyachts up to and over 100 metres LOA boast the very best custom-made handcrafted carpets and flooring, and are fine examples of Luxury Carpet Studio's consistent pursuit of excellence.

To find out more about the company’s wealth of expertise and highly-regarded products, the company’s founder and CEO, Vincenzo Solenne, joins BOAT for some quick-fire questions.

Why is Luxury Carpet Studio’s reputation so strong in the yachting sector?

It is a natural result of our choice to pursue excellence. Choosing to make everything custom has been a good decision that has allowed us to overcome the strict entry barriers to the luxury yachting world and position ourselves amongst the first three or four players in the field. Our products become an asset to the superyacht they’re a part of.

Why should a yacht owner choose Luxury Carpet Studio?

Great attention is placed at every phase of the creation of these carpets. Especially in designing, where, in some cases, we meet sustainability criteria by looking for reusable or recycled materials and how to limit waste. This eco-conscious design process promotes a circular design economy with clean energy and ecological components such as non-polluting colours.

We also strive to find a balance between the needs of everyone involved in the project. Luxury Carpet Studio takes care of everyone in each phase of the project, from the idea and briefing stage to the design process, choice of materials and colours, and both delivery and installation.

If I had to summarise, I would say that what distinguishes us is our combined knowledge, experience, professionalism, reliability, and conceptual and manufacturing flexibility.

Can you tell us more about your designs?

Our team of talented artisans are able to achieve an impactful and eye-catching 3D carving effect on request using innovative materials in curved and geometrical designs. The choice of colours and materials, in the name of beauty and sophistication, their quality and certification standards also play a part. We can use everything from reusable or recycled materials, such as the sustainably-focused synthetic yarn ECONYL, as well as quality wools, silk and yarns.

Our collections range in colours and tones that complement the natural hues of the sea and sky. The finished design can be patterned with custom shapes ranging from angular to sinuous and decorated in either subdue or intense shades. The end results are environmentally aware, aesthetically appealing carpets set apart by their softness as well as maintainability, durability and ease of cleaning.

On what yachts can we see your products?

For years, we have been at the side of the most important Italian shipyards such as Sanlorenzo and Cantiere delle Marche. The Sanlorenzo SL86 and CdM's RJ 130 are models featuring our furnishings and carpets and are two of 55 projects we have worked on in the past few years. In the first trimester of 2022, Luxury Carpet Studio grew by +65% compared to the same period in 2021. The continuous search for excellence is a daily exercise!
