Craigie Stockwell have worked for many years in this specialist area.
We were privileged to work with the legendary Jon Bannenberg during the 1970s and 80s on a number of exciting projects including: M/Y Talitha G, and M/Y Nabila (now ‘Kingdom’). I flew with the late Jon Bannenberg to Pisa and then down to Viareggio in 1980 to see Nabila in the Bennetti shipyard, learning how he had come over to England as a classical musician and then moved from set design at the Royal Opera House to becoming the first person to bring style and flair to the blossoming market for Superyachts.
We have worked with many other designers, many of whom originally trained under Bannenberg, but many who made their own reputation in this unique industry.
We have also worked with a number of Interior designers on yachts: such as Tessa Kennedy on Atlantis II, and Gerard Villate on ‘Lady Christine’.
Craigie Stockwell’s designers have created some very beautiful ‘tone on tone’ carpet designs with the Superyacht industry in mind but which were also the current mood for luxury interiors and these can be found in our ‘Modern Carpets and Rugs Collections’ page on this website. Many of these were launched at International Superyacht Exhibitions such as at Monaco, Nice, Palma and even Amsterdam.
‘It is just so handsome and the colors are just right! I am really so pleased and cannot thank you and the team enough for making the rug that I envisioned. With such appreciation,’
