Ipswich Hotel

Ipswich Hotel

Project Brief:

The Ipswich Hotel was recently acquired by Brian Keane & the Best Western hotel group. As part of a full building refurbishment they invited Valdivian Furniture to furnish all the bedrooms.

Design Approach:

Having seen the work that we had completed to such a high standard on the smaller Brome Grange refurbishment, project manager & owner Brian was happy for us to lead on the design. We produced a mood board of the fabrics, colours and textures that we intended to use. Once the full scheme was approved, we set to work.

Furniture:

The wood we chose for the bed frames and other larger pieces was a mixture of oak veneer & rubber wood. Rubber wood is a hardwood that has already had a life on a rubber plantation producing latex. Historically, the mature trees were burned when they had passed their usefulness – but the timber from these trees is perfect for furniture construction. The rubber wood was stained to a smoked oak tone. All the furniture in the bedrooms is manufactured sustainably by Valdivian Furniture: we made wardrobes, luggage racks, dressing tables, bedside tables, headboards, pelmets, arm chairs, curtains, bed runners & cushions.
