From the über cool to the contemporary, classic and chic, independent hotel designers continue to make their properties standout with a sense of personality, fun, luxury and style. The no limits approach to hotel interiors today is enabling designers to push the boundaries of their ideas and produce unique spaces that spark the imagination of guests to create a memorable stay.
The Independent Hotel Show 2014, taking place at Olympia on October 21 and 22, features a hotbed of ideas and inspiration for the boutique hotelier looking to explore new trends in interiors and hotel design. Whether you’re looking to create a lobby with a lasting impression, explore ways to create a unique personalised space for your guests or experiment with new fabrics and textures, the show will host a range of quality luxury suppliers and interior specialists offering expert advice.
Soak up the shows creative output with a special focus this year on bathroom design. No longer viewed as the smallest room in the house, leading independent hoteliers are creating bathrooms that are a haven of luxury and design and scream of opulence. The shows seminar ‘Rewriting the Rules of Bathroom Design’, taking place on 22 October, will explore the exciting developments in hotel bathroom design to create the ‘wow’ factor for guests and turn a bathroom into a hotel’s USP.
Hear first-hand advice and products news form Georgina Pearman, owner of design lead hotel group, The Lucky Onion, Michael Kiolbassa, head of communications at Axor Brands from leading supplier Hansgrohe International, and Mark Sait, managing director of SaveMoneyCutCarbon.
Leading kitchen and bathroom journalist and blogger, Grahame Morrison, will be on hand to give his views on what tomorrow’s consumers will expect from future hotel bathroom design, and how hoteliers can exceed their expectations.
Commenting on the allure of eye-catching, impression defining hotel and bathroom design, Vanessa Brady OBE, president of the Society of British and International Design and fifth panellist on the ‘Rewriting the Rules of Bathroom Design’ seminar says;
“Considered and creative design offers a unique way for hoteliers to convey the personality of their hotel, something that cannot be easily replicated elsewhere. Hotel designers are in an unrivalled position to push the boundaries in their work, tapping into and reflecting guests desire to ‘escape from it all’ where guests have time to languish for leisure or business users who take speedy but technologically advanced showers. With a wealth of great talent on hand, UK independent hoteliers are leading the way with innovative, thought provoking design that is capturing the imagination of guests worldwide.”
