As Levey prioritizes the health and safety of our community, we continue to follow our clients’ projects as they adapt to the “new normal”.
Featured this week is Hotel Omni Charlotte, a client project that has recently implemented CDC-Certified Enhanced Cleaning Procedures. Thanks to our cleanable, commercial grade wallcovering, staff members can keep hotel guests safe and protected without worrying about damaging surfaces.
Completed in May of 2018 – Omni Hotels & Resorts commissioned Canadian design firm Moncur Design Associates Inc to transform the 369 room Omni Charlotte including guestrooms, corridors and public spaces.
To support their vision, Moncur Design Associates Inc partnered with Levey to make use of multiple designs from our vast and exclusive selection of wallcoverings. Two patterns from Levey’s wallcovering collections alongside a custom wood vinyl from LEVEYart Digital are implemented into the hotel’s design.
Washable and cleanable, these Levey commercial wallcovering solutions help generate a safer environment for all hotel guests. With Len Tex’s Aqua-Clear 3.0 as the coating, these vinyl designs have an excellent scrubbability and are resistant to antimicrobial commercial cleaning agents.
Featured throughout the premise of Omni Charlotte – in the hotel’s various guestrooms, lobbies, hallways and more – is the pattern Popolo by DeNovo Wall in colour Tinsel Town.
Thematically, the design team was inspired by the city of Charlotte – a banking hotspot with a history rich in precious metals. The imperfect grid-like pattern of Popolo features a luxurious silver-toned metallic mylar finish, which successfully nods to the glamour, elegance and class associated with this vision. Meanwhile, Popolo’s off-white base acts as a neutral element that
compliments and fuses with other aspects of the hotel’s design.
From an application standpoint, this mylar laminated wallcovering is durable and washable. Its antimicrobial surface prevents the growth of bacteria and allows for a better sanitization process. This proves especially important in a hospitality environment, where the application is subject to high occupancy turnover in the heart of a major city.
Utilized in the ensuites throughout the hotel, the unique geometric pattern of Steam Trunk from York Contract’s Restoration Elements collection is an intriguing visual accent. The design serves as a cohesive factor in uniting other materials while paying homage to the city of Charlotte.
This durable Type II Commercial Vinyl Wallcovering was specified in the shade of Optic White – an off white, simulated silk weave base with a diamond-like pattern. Applied mostly to washroom walls, this commercial wallcovering allows for extensive cleaning protocols without causing damage to its low lustre silver metallic finish.
The designers further accented the walls of Omni Charlotte with warm wood. The design intends to deliver a sense of warmth and comfort hotel guests, as well as incorporating nature in a centrally located hotel.
Mimicking the finish of natural wood, this custom accent wallcovering stands as a commercial grade vinyl wallcovering and was developed in a collaboration between Moncur Design Associates Inc and LEVEYart Digital. It prevents the formation of mould, mildew and bacteria, protecting guests against COVID-19.
By specifying our custom digital wallcovering with a realistic wood print, the designers were able to achieve optimal durability and attain the specific look of wood that was desired.
