Yarwood Leather: Behind the Design of Sleep & Eat 2019

Yarwood Leather offers an extensive range of world-class leathers and faux leathers, designed especially for seating applications. Bright tones and distressed leather look finishes bring a new approach to leather, mixing traditionally homely leathers into the public space. More than a leather supplier, Yarwood Leather offers a bespoke colour service and an additional leather embroidery service which can add extra detail to seating, headboards and wall paneling designs.

Always looking to create fresh schemes and concepts, the team at Twenty2 Degrees Design partnered up with Yarwood Leather and was tasked with creating a guestroom set for the 2019 Sleep & Eat event.

The concept was inspired by understanding each guest’s individuality and considering their needs. Dance, Sleep, Work, Play – we are creating a flexible space for the social, a haven for a guest’s stay. Distorted riffs softened with plush fabrics, warm timbers set against a vibrant zing, a hotel room that’s more than one thing.

Of course, exhibitions have limited space therefore this aspect was vital to consider when designing the proposal. When visiting a hotel, not all guests require all elements, a desk, for instance. The team at Twenty2 Degrees had this flexibility at the forefront of the design, with the different elements being easily available to be brought out or hidden away as required to enable the guest to personalize their guestroom experience. Yarwood Leather’s Mustang Lagoon was chosen for different elements of this design and showcases how leather can be used for more than just seating.

Furthermore, let’s focus on the finer details – the intricacies of this design. The lavish hotel headboard is paired with natural wood and vibrant cushions. The rustic, lived-in look of Mustang adds character to this limited space. This also being complemented by the drawer liner which is a: DJ deck, desk, dining table which pulls out a glass-topped drawer subsequently having multiple uses depending on the guest. Mustang Lagoon was again used for the lining of the drawer which focuses on the colour contrast with the guitar, consequently working perfectly for this design.

Whilst we delve into this imaginative design and fantastic use of Yarwood’s leather, we shan’t forget aspects such as the shelving. They can be used to store your possessions, utilised as a minibar but most importantly, it will match the other decor as it is also Mustang Lagoon leather. Similarly, the wardrobe liner also adopts the Mustang Lagoon leather, reinforcing the consistent use of the leather as well as the brilliant design.
