Blending the Blue

Paying homage to Turkey’s glorious past and heralding its future is Royal Thai’s look book—Bosphorus. Inspired by this distinctive lifestyle, it is the melding of two continents, countless creative influences and millennia of history.

“Royal Thai brings a multicultural perspective to the flooring industry,” said Darren Hayward, global design & product development. “With a leadership team that covers every time zone, a manufacturing team based in Thailand and design teams across Europe, Asia and the Americas, we represent a wide variety of cultures and a diverse range of ideas. We believe diversity drives innovation, and have captured that in our Bosphorus Look Book where we pay homage to two melding continents: Eastern Europe and Western Asia.”

“Assouline published a book called Bosphorus Private, and we were inspired by the photographs and lifestyle of this region in Turkey that represents the merging of two continents and a multicultural people that date back thousands of years. We dug into our archive to find patterns that were traditionally Turkish—designs where you can see traces of China, Greece and Eastern European influences,” Hayward said.
