On Friday, December 16, Langhorne Carpets welcomed Gacek Design Group for a tour of our historic Penndel mill. Langhorne’s own Bill Morrow led the group around our facility, from the Jacquard room to finishing, past narrow and broad looms, and through our design archives. We were delighted the talented firm from New Hope, PA chose to spend their valuable time visiting us. The reason for their visit?
“Over time, you really learn to value expertise,” said Lori Olzewski, the firm’s director of marketing and business development. “One of the things we like to do is build what we call experiential design: Our designs tell a story. They’re based on how people live in a home, on experiences. We were really drawn to the experience of the mill, how differentiated it is.”
Founded in 2005 by Richard Gacek, the interior design and architectural consulting group is known
for their timeless and classic designs for both private and commercial clients. Their portfolio of work spans historic residences, modern farmhouses, traditional apartments, elegant beach houses and classic mountain retreats. They view Langhorne as a natural choice for their work.
“Carpet making is a lost art,” said Olzewski. “At Langhorne, you can customize, personalize. We value Langhorne’s expertise, and our clients value that expertise.”
