A contemporary lift was what Gallopers Sports Club needed when it underwent a major refurbishment in April last year, and a contemporary lift was what Artistic Flooring delivered.

The old, worn, striped carpet was at the top of Management’s list of things in need of updating and our team was brought in to design and deliver a fresh and modern flooring scheme to replace it.

Lead designer on the project, Stacey Stojcevski, said she worked closely with the client to create a one-of-a-kind carpet design that was welcoming, full of warmth as well as adaptable.

“One of the challenges we faced with the design was the broad market segment the club attracts,” Stacey said, “It enjoys regular patronage from the older demographic, however being situated between Eagle Farm and Doomben race tracks it also draws in a lot of the younger, fashionable crowd.”

The brief also called for flooring design that would work across the Club’s three main public spaces; the bar, the gaming area and the bistro.

The design that ticked all the boxes and won over the client was a bold lotus-inspired pattern, created by Stacey, featuring a striking red flower motif with accents of gold in the vine work.

“It’s been deliberately designed to really catch your eye when you first walk in, and to complement other interior design elements such as the original tiling,” Stacey said, “The pop of red against a dark mahogany background has a modern-retro feel which appeals to younger as well as older generations.

General Manager of Gallopers Sports Club, Wayne Percey, said he couldn’t be more pleased with the end result.

“I was impressed by Artistic Flooring’s professional service and ability in dealing with our tight deadlines,” Mr Percey said, “We have received nothing but positive feedback on the design plus the feel of the carpet and since the upgrade we have seen a significant increase in patronage and sales.”

Our Managing Director, David Williams believes Artistic Flooring’s signature Axminster carpet makes the difference.
