The luxury hotel Palazzo del Corso – nestled in the heart of Gallipoli town, in Puglia – is embellished with some exclusive Illulian rugs: Ecstasy and Oracle from the Design Collection, Amalfi and Saint Barth from the Marina Collection.
The Design Collection features unique pieces with modern, minimalist, floral and geometric patterns that draw on the latest trends from the world of fashion and interior design.
The Marina Collection is a line dedicated to the nautical world, which includes models inspired by the sea and yachting, combining the aesthetics and creativity typical of Illulian’s design with the outstanding quality of their raw materials.
The 5-star boutique hotel Palazzo del Corso is the outcome of a recent renovation of two 19th century buildings. The structure has maintained its original splendor: frescoes, design furnishings and modern art objects enrich the Grand Suites, while the common areas and the Prestige rooms boast ancient decorations. Illulian rugs perfectly match with the elegant and glamorous context: in the suite rooms the sophisticated design of Oracle rug is softened by a neutral and delicate color palette; in the common areas the Ecstasy model – with its discontinuous frames – creates an intriguing optical effect; the Saint Barth and Amalfi rugs give the environment a sophisticated feel, with the lively color of the red coral that stands out on a mélange background.
Himalayan wool, pure silk and vegetable colours are the essential elements that contribute to giving each carpet an unmistakably brilliant appearance and rich chromatic details that guarantee the surrounding space an exclusive and elegant allure. Popular among architects and interior designers and used both for private residences and for contract projects, Illulian rugs are completely customizable in terms of size, color and shape, meeting the specific needs of the most demanding customers.
All Illulian’s rugs from the Marina Collection and Design Collection are knotted and carded by hand and can be produced in two quality levels: Platinum 120 and Gold 100. Platinum 120, the most exclusive line, is characterised by the use of top quality wool and silk and the extremely complex handcrafted process – with a stunning 180,000 knots/m2 – that creates highly scenographic sculpted effects. Gold 100 proposes rugs made from wool and silk, with a timeless charm and a density of 150,000 knots/m2.
The hotel Palazzo del Corso in Gallipoli is the latest in a series of contract projects run by Illulian, including the City Life Zaha Hadid Residence in Milan, St. Regis in Florence and the new Palace of the Region in Milan.
