Carpets tell tales. Tales of beauty, wealth and comfort, and the more exquisite their quality, the more auspicious their message seems to be. For a carpet is not only a soft, cushioning layer, an elegant decoration and a valuable possession all at the same time; it is also the feature that characterises the luxurious and unmistakable atmosphere of a room, welcoming the visitor and inviting him to tarry, and lingering in his memory.
Entrusted to Oliver Treutlein, all of this is in good hands. Founded in 1985, Oliver Treutlein has developed to become one of the leading international carpet designers and manufacturers, designing and producing unique, hand-tufted carpets. He is not only accustomed to having customers describe their wishes to him meticulously, but also to capturing a mood and style on the basis of no more than a few clues and developing from that the carpet which is the key to a harmonious room concept—he puts all the pieces together like a large jigsaw puzzle.
Natural fibres of the very highest quality are selected, such as precious silk which, having undergone an extra refinement process in Switzerland, is hank-dyed in large tubs over a period of several days according to an old tradition. Colours and nuances are combined, patterns created by different pile heights and grooves or brought to the fore with appliqué in precious metals. Thus, exclusive collections of handmade, one-off, wall-to-wall carpets are created.
Work at O.T. facilities demands the highest standards, attention to detail and precision, and this makes itself felt at all corporate levels. It applies particularly to large-scale yacht projects, for which Oliver Treutlein developed a great passion.
A Passion for Yachting
Since the early 90s, these sleek, white-hulled vessels have been Oliver Treutlein’s profession. With his experienced team of fifty specialists, he has to come to look after most of the megayachts worldwide, fitting out these vessels so as to fulfil their owners‘ fantasies—luxury yachts of the 21st century—and perpetuating the legend of their majestic aura.
Whether it’s a new vessel or a refit, and wherever it may be, each certified carpet is delivered and precisionfitted on site by O.T.’s own staff. After all, the excellence of the end product can only be guaranteed if personal responsibility is taken for every single operation and every single detail. And his complete commitment makes that universal yearning for far horizons become a thing you can feel.
