Newhey Carpets work with V K Colorworks to revamp Hoburne Holiday Parks
Newhey Carpets, a leading British manufacturer and designer of innovative, high performance and sustainable commercial carpets recently supplied over 3000 square metres of Colortec+ carpet to Hoburne Holiday Parks. Hoburne own a chain of 7 holiday parks, which welcome over 100,000 holiday makers each year and are located in key resorts across southwest England.
As part of a massive £6 million refurbishment programme Newhey were approached by V K Colourworks, based in North Devon, to assist them with the development of three of the Hoburne sites: Bashley, Naish and Cotswolds. Each of these three parks has had £1 million alone spent on creating a new look entertaining dining and leisure complex. Newhey were briefed to create two bespoke designs for the Showbar and Café, with the Stock Collection ‘Lines’ being used throughout the restaurant. It was key for the carpet designs to all relate to each other yet still show some variation and to incorporate relaxing colours and natural materials.
Vicky Wilkins from V K Colourworks commented: “This was the first project we had approached Newhey Carpets about. Our brief was to design a concept that would flow through all of the Hoburne Holiday Parks. We used different carpets to define certain areas but they needed to compliment each other. With expert advice and service from the team at Newhey we used stock items and bespoke carpets to make the scheme come together.”
The restaurant carpet was selected from one of Newhey’s eight Stock Collections. The ‘Lines’ Stock Collection was used in ‘Carbon Blue’ and offered a speedy yet stylish solution to the design firm. The two bespoke designs were re-coloured using Newhey’s very own Colortec Express technology, which gives designers the option of over 290 colours to use on any design. Finally, all of the carpets were backed using Newhey’s secondary backing system, ‘evobac’. Evobac is produced using 100% recycled plastic bottles and offers a sustainable option to interior designers that work with Newhey.
