La Quinta- Downtown Chicago
Quiltcraft manufactured and installed wood cornices, overdrapes and sheers for 293 guestroom windows for the La Quinta Inn & Suites – Chicago Downtown located at One South Franklin in the heart of Chicago's financial and theater district.
The Dewberry is a historical hotel located in the heart of downtown Charleston in North Carolina. Architects and designers managed to update and renovate the hotel without losing it's original artistic/contemporary yet modern/southern feel. This award is well deserved as the hotel "is not a riff off anything; it's its own thing."
South Oak Cliff Textile Company Still Going Strong
CBS DFW Local – When most textile manufacturing—comforters, draperies and the like—moved overseas, Larry and Janet Pearson moved Quiltcraft from the design district to south Oak Cliff. And yes, colleagues called them crazy. “Yeah, all of them did,” admitted Pearson, with a laugh. But, time has shown that he was crazy like a fox. “We are busting at the seams.” Haven’t heard of Quiltcraft? No worries. People can see their work at various hotels. “You have seen our product in every major hotel in the United States,” said Pearson. From Marriott to Hilton to LaQuinta to Motel 6, custom bedding, pillows and window treatments were made in south Oak Cliff.
JW Marriott- Mexico City
“The design attempts to recreate the story of Polanco, drawing on the fact that the city sits upon Aztec ruins,” says designer Kathryn Mickel of the JW Marriott Mexico City property, bringing Aztec society to life with a modern Mexican twist.
Silversmith Hotel- Chicago
Who says you have to dress your age? Certainly not the new operator and design team responsible for the recently renovated Silversmith Hotel Chicago. Behind the building’s brick and tile façade designed by D.H. Burnham and Co. in 1897, they saw the bones of a new kind of boutique hotel that could shine on Chicago’s Jewelers Row. But it was clearly going to take inspiration and innovation to transform this diamond in the rough into a head-turning competitor in a red-hot hotel scene.
