A custom designed woven Axminster carpet from Godfrey Hirst Australia was installed in the guest areas of The Vibe Darling Harbour, adding a luxury element to the 4.5 star hotel.

Previously a retail and commercial space, the building was transformed into the Vibe Hotel Darling Harbour through WMK Architecture’s competition-winning architecture and interior design. The chic New York loft aesthetic combined with Sydney’s rich heritage and the vibrancy of the neighbourhood creates an international vibe.

The Vibe Hotel Darling Harbour offers 145 stylish guest rooms, a rooftop swimming pool and bar, and irresistible views of the Darling Harbour Precinct. 

Godfrey Hirst’s woven Axminster carpet in a custom design was chosen to feature in all guest rooms and corridors of the hotel. Made from a rich, premium wool blend fibre, the carpet brings together traditional weaving techniques and cutting-edge technology to add character and quality to your project.

The woven Axminster carpet offers luxury, performance, quality and versatility along with bespoke capability and comfort.


Made from a blend of premium wools, the woven carpet adds a touch of luxury to a space, and is designed to impress in high end interiors.


The natural resilience of the wool fibre combined with the dense construction of the woven carpet makes the floor fit and ready for any commercial space.


The woven carpet is produced using old-world craftsmanship methods in combination with modern technology. The pile and backing are interwoven, locking each yarn into place for extra stability.


The woven Axminster carpet offers four different options to suit the specific foot traffic requirements of your project. From guestrooms to corridors and public spaces, there’s an option for each area commensurate with its use.
