The Canopy Dallas Uptown by Hilton is the first in Texas, and one of the fist Canopy hotels to open in the nation. The Javelin Group worked with Hilton very closely in order to open the 150-room hotel and develop a nontraditional concept that offers more than just nice amenities. The property has a connection to local neighborhoods, inviting guests to be a part of local activities and helping out by providing guests with a welcome gift for their dog and a 24-hour pass to the dog-friendly restaurant across the street. Canopy Dallas also features Upside, a rooftop lounge with amazing views of the Dallas skyline. Quiltcraft partnered with Jaguar Hospitality to provide window treatments, booth/banquettes and other details throughout the hotel’s guestrooms and public areas. Don’t just believe us when we say that the guestrooms are designed to give a ‘cozy’ welcome to each guest, see it for yourself in the pictures below!

Valances as we defined in our blog “Is it a Cornice? Is it a Valance? Are those words Interchangeable?”, are made with a wood top board and fabric hanging from the front and sides. Valances are in many ways simpler than cornices as there are not as many options.

Nevertheless, we will run through the most notable options below in an attempt to offer some inspiration and inform you, the designer especially, about the styles available for your next hospitality or healthcare project.

As we know there are 2 main types of top treatments; cornices & valances. For those of you that think those two words mean the same thing check out “Is it a Cornice? Is it a Valance? Are those words Interchangeable?”. The most simplistic answer to those three questions is “No, those words are not interchangeable. Cornices are constructed of wood on all sides while valances have a wood top board with fabric front and sides.”

WHAT IS HOSPITALITY DRAPERY BILLOWING? AND HOW TO FIX IT!

Have you ever been a guest in a hotel and cranked your AC down to the max? Well of course you have because isn’t that what everyone does in hotel rooms. Anyway, in doing so have you ever then experienced the subtle noises throughout the night of drapery blowing out into the room, tapping the glass and continuing like a broken record throughout the night? The sound is always just loud enough to be very disturbing to sleep but not quite obnoxious enough to merit getting up and turning down the AC. Regardless that movement of the drapery into the room is what the industry calls ‘billowing’ and it is a factor we try our best to solve.

5 FLAMMABILITY RATINGS

In the hospitality industry safety is of utmost importance. We’ve discussed some other safety related topics in blogs such as “How do I ensure that a hotel property meets Child Safety Specifications?”, “ADA Code for Hospitality Window Treatments”, and “What is Blocking?” Today we are excited to discuss the topic of Fabric Flammability Ratings. In order to pass safety inspections all fabric used within a hotel or healthcare property must be certified as Fire Retardant. That certification is not incredibly simple though, as there are multiple different options for fire ratings (FR). In this blog we will outline each of the five fire ratings and offer some tips into ensuring your fabric is FR treated or having fabric FR treated after the fact.
