Innovation in contract fabrics

22nd February 2018

7.5km of Panaz fabric supplied to 5-star St Petersburg Hotel

An extensive modernisation of the 5-star Lotte St Petersburg Hotel has been completed, resulting in more than 7.5km of Panaz fabric being used throughout the building. This award-winning renovation has been received with great enthusiasm and demonstrates the versatility of Panaz’s range of contract textiles.


Situated on the banks of the Moyka River, ideally placed within the city’s historical and retail centres, The St Petersburg site offers the quintessential Russian city experience. Panaz’s large offering of desirable, high-performance contract fabrics made us the ideal suppliers for such an integral part of the refurbishment.

The interior of each room has been designed to reflect the refined sophistication that is synonymous with Russia’s cultural capital. Subtlety has been a key influence, as calming tones of Shimmer Blackout Gold, Plain Voile Champagne & Cellini Stone help to create a relaxed and elegant atmosphere for all guests. Bold flashes of Dupion Scarlet and Fantasia Beige/Blue have been used sparingly to complete the look of the rooms, reminiscent of the city’s famed Imperial interiors.

These delicate design choices have helped the Lotte St Petersburg to be named “Europe’s Leading New Hotel” at the 2017 World Travel Awards.

Elsewhere within the hotel, visitors can enjoy world class dining experiences at either The Lounge or MEGUmi. Or indulge themselves at the L Terrasa rooftop cocktail bar and The Mandara Balinese Spa. Batiste White, Spectrum Navy, Cirrus Dusty Sage and many other Panaz fabrics can be found in all the hotel’s exceptional facilities, showcasing the diversity of our fabric range.

All the fabric supplied by Panaz is highly durable and flame-retardant to international standards, allowing the staff of the Lotte St Petersburg to concentrate on creating the best experience for their visitors.
