Creating Comfort

Seneca Textiles worked closely with the designers on the Grand Mercure Auckland refurbishments, helping find the right wallcoverings for the project.

“Our role is to fuse insights, creativity and imagination with exclusively sourced collections from the world’s leading fabric houses and homeware manufacturers to find best-fit solutions for the designer’s or developer’s brief,” said Seneca owner, Dayle Bygrave.

A family owned and operated business, Seneca has been helping people express themselves through design for over 25 years, importing and creating beautiful interior furnishings for Australia and New Zealand.

Seneca regularly travels to Europe to visit its suppliers and attend fairs, so it can bring back the latest in international trends and industry tips and techniques to New Zealand.

Seneca’s collections cover every aspect of interior design, from contemporary to classic, from total innovation to traditional designs.

“Along with fabrics and wallcovering collections, our bed, accessories and bath linen ranges are a mix of the latest looks with timeless classics sourced from quality mills and manufacturers, often exclusively.”

All soft products for hotel rooms are available at Seneca, including everything from wallcoverings, upholstery, drapery, sheers, top of the bed and cushions.

“Some hotels miss the comfort factor – we want to help to create the feeling that when a guest walks into their room, they think “how wonderful, this is where I am spending the night.”
