Kimpton Hotel Allegro

Contrast and harmony abound in the reimagined interior of Hotel Allegro, the pillar of 1920's boutique hospitality in Chicago's Theatre District. Brintons supplied nearly 6,000 square yards of custom Axminster carpet; filling the guest room corridors, stairs, prefunction spaces, meeting rooms, lounge and dining areas, as well as reinterpreting local artist Sarah Raskey's abstract paintings into luxurious inset hand tufted rugs. The carpets unapologetically bridge the gap between the hotel’s rich historic narrative and the contemporary audience it caters to.

The design precision of Axminster weaving presents the ability to strategically tie the interior theme together in a variety of design capabilities. The more private areas feature floors of soft monochromatic textures contrasting against the crisp angular light fixtures suspended above, while a gleaming geometric pattern weaves through the corridors and stairwells harmonizing with the original 1920’s brass handrails.

“Designing the carpet for the Hotel Allegro with Brintons was a collaborative process. It felt like a partnership because they shared the same passion as our design team and they understood the impact the carpet would have in the overall space. They were meticulous with all the fine details and because of their extensive knowledge of carpet construction and design software, they helped guide us in translating painted works of art into beautiful carpet. The result is something that Simeone Deary Design Group is very proud of!”
