El Espartano

Hotel Hilton Barra Rio de Janeiro


El Espartano designed the carpets for the new Hotel Hilton Barra Rio de Janeiro, which will open its doors this year in Barra de Tijuca, just yards from the Olympic Park where the games were held in 2016. The building itself was designed by the celebrated Anastassiadis architecture firm.

The product chosen for this project was our traditional Wilton Jacquard carpet in somber shades of gray. A total of 1800m2 of carpet will be laid in the reception area, lobby, lounge, restaurant, conference rooms, and ballrooms. Because the Wilton Jacquard carpet is spun with long strands of pure virgin wool, it looks like velvet; by reflecting the light ever so slightly, these carpets provide a sense of luxury.
