Steve Farrell, Managing Director of SYLKA Carpets explains
“We are delighted to become associates of the International Yacht and Aviation Awards 2014 in conjunction with design et al and Luxe et al Magazine.
“The International Yacht and Aviation Awards seek to commend those designs which best represent luxury, inspiration and innovation – qualities which embody the SYLKA collection of carpets and rugs, making it ideal for luxury yachts or private aviation. With a high class field of entrants, these awards will recognise the very best in worldwide design and concepts so we’re delighted to lend our support.”
SYLKA Carpets – THE luxury carpet collection for super yachts
Developed using the innovative NuSilk™ fibre system, SYLKA™ carpets and rugs replicate the delicate aesthetic qualities of natural silk but with superior durability – making it perfect for luxury super yachts. With a commercial grading, SYLKA™ is tough enough to withstand heavy foot traffic, spillages and sun damage – retaining all its beauty even after spot cleaning.
Originally designed for super yachts, SYLKA™ is now a favourite of Sunseeker and other high profile boat builders. It has also recently been specified and installed in a luxury apartment on board the only private residential community at sea – M.S. The World. Available in a range of designer-friendly natural shades suitable for any yacht, this tough flooring comes at a fraction of the cost of natural silk and offers outstanding longevity, zero fibre loss, lasting colour and easy maintenance. Silk, bamboo and other faux silk carpets may be soft to touch and good to look at, but when it comes to stains, sun damage and water spillages they don’t stand a chance.
SYLKA™ is different, even a spillage such as red wine can be spot cleaned, leaving the carpet as beautiful and delicate, with the same silky texture, even after rough cleaning.
