Our Lead Art Consultant, Vanessa Vaughan, just returned from the Hospitality Design Expo in Vegas. We’re excited to share the latest trends in products and materials. Have a look at our highlights from the Expo and artwork that complements these forward-thinking designs.

OAK, MARBLE AND BRASS

These luxurious materials dominated the trade show in a major way. From tables with brass legs and marble tops to case goods made of soft gray oak and gold leafing everywhere, these finishes are back in a new and distinctively modern way.

MAUVE AND TURQUOISE

These unusual colors made a striking appearance at the Expo. Working in concert with the oak, marble, brass, ethereal and floral trends, these colors are a new variation of the pantones of the year that complement each other in a more mature, serious and calming palette.

ORGANIC, ETHEREAL TEXTILES & FLORALS

Moving away from geometry which has saturated the market in the last few years, the newest carpet and textile designs implement a layered, textural aesthetic that draws inspiration from the natural world.

STITCHING / EMBROIDERY

Stitched details lend a handmade, crafted quality as well as a more casual comfort to textiles and surfaces. This trend counter balances the luxuriousness of some other trends for a look that speaks to a younger audience appealing to millennial travelers with a sense of authenticity.
