4 Trends Influencing Hospitality

Style Library Contract share four trends they see having the greatest influence in global hospitality design in 2017.

1. INDIVIDUALITYHannah Bowen , Scion Designer resizeMore than ever before, hotel operators aim to create memorable destinations. Wanting good off-the-shelf designs and more. Interiors need to captivate, inspire and perform. Whether it’s a recolour of an existing design or developing something completely new, with Style Library Contract clients have the creative freedom to curate products that are uniquely theirs, created by the worlds most loved interior brands. Style Library Contracts Sales Director, Carolyn Mitchell comments;

“Just like our clients, we’re obsessed with great design, attention to detail and quality. So, we work together to celebrate our passion and create beautiful commercial spaces”. 

2. BOUTIQUE CHICHarlequin_2017_Momentum7&8_06_ER resizeHARLEQUIN Momentum is an eclectic mix of design styles, which have been inspired both by architecture and by abstract interpretations of natural forms. It combines elements of matt and shine, texture and tone. The weaves and wallcoverings represent a diverse mix of qualities and techniques: conceptual; geometric; painterly; multi-directional, light-reflecting embroideries; even appliquéd laser-cut circles.

They work together effortlessly to create a cohesive and achingly chic whole. Successfully capturing the essence of the most sophisticated international boutique hotels, Momentum translates this allure into a tangible, accessible collection of products for everyday living. Claire Vallis, Design Director, expands:

“This launch really encapsulates the cosmopolitan spirit of sleek, boutique hotels and glamorous townhouses, whilst still retaining its approachability. Targeted at both the domestic and the contract markets, the fabrics and wallcoverings exude an architectural, structural feel, but in an accessible, understandable way.”

3. NATURAL SPIRITScion_2017_Noukku_01_ER resizeSCION is the essence of the ‘good life’ vibe – forests, fresh air, fjords, food, freedom and fun – are all encapsulated in the latest collection, Noukku. Named after a species of Finnish wildflower, Noukku is totally in tune with the life-affirming ‘Hygge’ trend: it’s a versatile, spontaneous collection that invigorates your senses and encourages you to step away from your busy lifestyle. Scion Designer Hannah Bowen explains how Noukku evolve;

“Noukku is brought to life through an invigorating colour palette and use of textured effects inspired by natural elements. I wanted to create versatile and spontaneous designs which invigorate your senses and encourage you to step away from your busy lifestyle, an ideal backdrop to escaping away to a contemporary hotel”.

4. ARTISTRYZoffany_2017_Boleyn_02_ER resizeZoffany’s beautifully curated compendium of showstopping prints, weaves and embroideries crafted through a mixture of yarns and techniques, for the creation of inspirationally luxurious and unique interiors. The new Boleyn collection captures the faded elegance of time worn fabrics and wallpapers, each with their own captivating story to tell.

It is the skilful reinterpretation of these heirlooms and the dramatic harnessing of nature in abstracted form that elevates the collection to poised perfection. The rich moody greens of ‘Moss’ and ‘Khaki’ are punctuated with shots of ‘Greenstone’. ‘Faded Amethyst’, ‘Hollyhocks’ and ‘Sunstone’ add warmth. Soft mineral colours are offset against the jewel tone highlights of ‘Amber’, ‘Tigers Eye’, ‘Cinnabar’ and ‘Koi’ adding jewel tone highlights. Peter Gomez, Zoffany Head of Design explains;

“our aim is to create unique interiors with artistry, sophistication and integrity. We love to utilise our extensive archive for inspiration, each yarn, each brush stroke, each process is meticulously considered during the design process”.
