Throughout March, we’re highlighting people, places, and products within our Residential Products segment. Today we’re pleased to spotlight an exciting project recently completed by Hanes Hospitality, a division of L&P.
Andrea Hubbard, National Sales Manager at Hanes Hospitality, was approached by a customer over two years ago with a challenge. They were sourcing materials for a boutique hotel being built in Manhattan, NY, and were struggling to match a sample their designer had selected for the drapes.
The Hanes team had recently expanded beyond drapery linings into all-in-one designer blackout fabrics. Because of this, they were excited by the opportunity to provide a unique solution to the client. “We were able to take their concept and turn it into exactly what the designer was looking for,” says Andrea.
The collaboration resulted in striped blackout drapes framing floor-to-ceiling windows in the Moxy Chelsea hotel, which recently opened in Manhattan’s Flower District. The team at Hanes has been proud of the publicity stemming from the project. For example, the hotel design was recently featured in one of the largest and most respected trade magazines in the industry, Architectural Digest.
Projects like these are possible through the Hanes Custom Plus program, which allows the delivery of tailored project solutions to our customers. Based on a client’s inspiration, designs can be created using endless color options and over 7,000 unique patterns.
“The primary focus of my job is to provide clients with products that are relevant and needed in the industry,” says Andrea. “With the help of our product manager, Tony Spencer, we are able to develop custom solutions just like this project. Leggett & Platt is a highly respected name in hospitality, so our team works hard to drive both the L&P and Hanes names within our industry.”
