Cunard’s flagship liner RMS Queen Mary 2 has recently undergone a £90 million refurbishment. Brintons was appointed by SMC Design and worked closely with Cunard UK to provide nearly 20,000m² luxury axminster carpets to the 150,000 tonne transatlantic liner that takes inspiration from the original Queen Mary.
Three principles have been key to the glamorous new interiors, which include ensuring the designs give each area a distinct and confident look and feel, that they are intuitive to use with layouts optimised for guest use and that they harness the heritage of Cunard.
The refurbishment includes the construction of 15 new single cabins and an additional 30 Britannia Club cabins with Brintons supplying carpets for a number of public areas and suites.
RMS Queen Mary 2 is the flagship vessel of the Cunard Line. Launched in 2004, the ship was named by Queen Elizabeth II after the first 1936 namesake ship RMS Queen Mary. It was designed by a team of British naval architects led by Stephen Payne and was constructed in France by Chantiers de l'Atlantique in 2003.
