Well, the 2012 Hospitality Design Expo and Conference just wrapped up last week here in Las Vegas. This year brought more serious Designers and Developers, which are actually working on new jobs, than we had in the past couple of years. The show is always more amazing when you are in the midst of projects, hoping to find that next best market introduction to include in your “designs in process”!
This year for our firm, it appeared to be about lighting and the latest plumbing and bath fixtures!
Here are some of our finds and you will hopefully see these in some of our up and coming designs!
Rohl – Jorger Bath and Fixtures
24 carat gold or platinum with Swarovski amber, amethyst or black crystal …
Stunning and for that very special project!
See them online at rohljorger.com
Not your standard Grab Bars anymore!
These bars by greatgrabz.com were featured at the show noting that the term ADA is passé!
The concept of Universal Living Design has taken its place.
These are beautiful in any setting!
Old is new! Finishes coming back again!
We are seeing that Bright Polished Chrome is becoming the new Brushed Stainless and Brass is coming back as the new Nickel!
Lighting the way!
We loved the massiveness of this fixture and the simplicity as well!

Don’t you love the shade?

This was just this most interesting chandelier!
Thanks for reading!
Increased competition, market saturation and rising expectations of visitors mean that hotels must not only widen their choices and raise their standards of service, but also invest in interior design. Currently, guests expect a hotel to not only meet the basic requirements for accommodation, but guarantee comfort, relaxation and a pleasurable stay. Sophisticated, well-equipped bathrooms, tasteful and prestigious decor, and the use of sumptuous materials raise the standards of a facility and provide fond memories of that hotel.
Bathroom areas in hotels are usually small. Accumulated clutter and the “necessaries” in such a space can cause the decorative elements to be lost, overwhelmed, and obscured. Therefore, a minimalist style is ideal for hotel bathrooms – with a strong, clear accent. Small bathrooms prove themselves with friendly materials and larger scales; large mirrors filling an entire wall or placed on two walls, polished and shiny materials, and decorative lighting highlight the nuances of space.
Watch for part two on Hotel Rooms!
