The Westin Brisbane opened in late 2018, offering an urban retreat for leisure and business travellers.

The luxury hotel, designed by Woods Bagot, has 299 five-star guest rooms and suites, as well as hospitality and wellness amenities, including restaurants and bars, a ballroom and function spaces, resort-style pool and tranquil day spa.

Kvadrat Maharam worked with Woods Bagot and project management firm GMP to bring the interiors to life, providing nearly 7500 metres of textiles for walls, joinery and loose furniture throughout The Westin. The brief asked for a palette that reflects the subtropical climate and energetic vibe of the city, but with a high-end and corporate aesthetic. The upholstery needed to look beautiful and to have durability and performance attributes to suit a busy 5-star environment.

The private bar has a beautiful and rich red palette, teaming Harald by Raf Simons with Velvet Stripe by Paul Smith. Harald, originally designed by Fanny Aronsen, and with more recent palettes conceived by Raf Simons, is a closely woven, very-short-pile velour with a directionless velvety texture. The intense ruby-red colour emphasises the shape and contours of the objects it upholsters – bar stools from Space and the interior of Ross Gardam’s Noon Armchairs sourced from Stylecraft. Velvet Stripe by Paul Smith is on the exterior of the armchairs, and injects shots of orange, pink, blue and green into the palette by way of the English fashion designer’s tailored yet eccentric, playful style.
