Mercure, Leeds, Bespoke Fabrics
The hotel offers Standard, Superior and Privilege rooms which are all decorated to a high standard with style. The quirky interior takes inspiration from Leeds historical woollen cloth trade industry.
The designer on this project, Matthews Mee— created a brief which reflects the buildings history. A tailoring theme was carried through from the public areas and into the bedrooms. Skopos were tasked with creating a headboard to replicate a tailor’s suit pattern.
Skopos designers started out by drawing out a suit pattern in white to emulate tailoring chalk. Attention to detail ensured an authentic looking pattern was created and a base of a herringbone wool-look cloth added to the design. This was then printed onto the Skopos upholstery basecloth, Capa, providing a waterproof, antimicrobial, and soil resistant headboard which complies to all contract FR standards .
The end result added a perfect tailoring flourish to this historic brief.
