There are few things more luxurious than being driven around town in a classic stretch limousine. Luck for us, an Ottawa limousine service has created a contest as call for designers to take their flee tot the next level. Details about the contest can be found here on their facebook page.
Essentially, this limo rental company realized that in order to stand out from the competition they should upgrade to stunning interiors that will be the back drop of instagraming party goers for years to come. The problem there are very few companies out their that specialize in limousine interior design. Perhaps a good business idea for any of our readers looking to branch out into other markets and make name for yourself in a specific line of business. The owner at Ottawa limo has offered some guidelines for those looking to enter the contest for an 4-hour limousines ride for up to 8 people.
Choice of lighting will alter moods and ultimately influence behavior of passengers. Since we know this, we may as well take advantage! So what are the colors for limousine interior? Well, thats where this limo business is looking for your help. Particularly for their Lincoln town car and navigator stretch limousines. The most commonly used lighting is LED lights. In the video above, you can see just how dramatic these light can be. Lighting does not need to be limited to the interior of the vehicle. Rather, it would be a nice touch to add some exterior lighting designs. Ottawa, Ontario can be a very icy place in the winter time and having some additional visibility with halogen footboard lighting will light up any potential hazards that even a red carpet cant make safe!
Limo Fabrics and Seating
Leather has been the overwhelming choice for limousine fabric internationally for years but perhaps we’ve been overlooking some other excellent options. Leather interior in limos has long been considered the go to for it universal representation of sexy style and in a more logical sense a very rugged, durable and easily cleaned material. With that being said, there are some downsides to having leather seating. Summer months, leather tends to heat up, something that may be a serious concern for bridesmaids that will potentially have exposed skin making contact with leather seating in very hot temperatures. I think we’ve all had the experience of peeling our self off a leather seat in the summer months, so perhaps leather seating is not the best option. Also, winter can be very cold for going out in a limousine in Ottawa. Leather seats can become stiff and ice cold to the touch. So well leave it up to you to research further into advance in luxury leather fabrics for your design. Personally I would take a look into Jaguar and Ferrari for interior fabric and wooden dashboard inspirations.
Limousine Tire and Rims
Now the part of the project most of us interior designer have little experience with. Luxury custom rims. With that being said. Pinterest is full of inspiration. Most limousines will still only have 4 tires but some of the larger buses will have 8-16. Your task is to match the rest of your design with an appropriate tire and rim combo. Please include the budget required to outfit in your choice as it will also be useful in determining the tie breaker in the event it is too difficult for them to choose a clear winner they will look at wise pricing to reward a winner.
