Top 3 Australian Resort Design Trends in 2019

It’s 2019, and hotels are no longer just a place to sleep for the night. Instead, hotels are lively and festive places where people connect. As designers, we focus on the design trends we expect to see at hotels in Australia this year.

Since The Hilton Sydney opened in 1974, the hotel industry in Australia has been rising and booming ever since. Hotels in Australia faced unexpected lows in the 2000’s. This is one reason hotel chains and properties are working hard to be different from their competitors. Let’s take a look at certain areas where we could see change, in 2019.

 

1. Colour

In 2018, we experienced a trend towards neutralized colours. Pale tints and soft shades like washed out pink, blue, cool grey and white were prevalent. We also saw a rising trend in colours like rose gold and silver. However, in 2019, the director of design at HVS design, Christine Shanahan, says that hotels can be seen moving away from using pale colours and going towards washing a room with bold and natural colours.

The reason behind, is that people having seen neutralized colours for a while. Now, they have started to enjoy bright and welcoming colours once again. Not only does it provide a natural feel, but also creates energy in the room. When looking at custom furniture in Sydney, we can see this factor becoming prevalent in furnishings and single walls.

Green is likely to be everywhere in 2019. According to Darren Palmer, one of Australia’s most renowned and influential interior designers, interior trends for 2019 are all about getting back to nature. He also said that he notices Coral colours everywhere in Calile, Brisbane in Fortitude Valley. The colour ‘Living Coral’ is an “animating and life-affirming shade of orange with a golden undertone” says Darren.

2. Experience

Speaking of inspiration from nature, be ready to see more natural elements in hotel lobbies and rooms like hanging plants, creepers, living walls, etc. Such practices don’t affect the quality or wellness of the structure or room which is why they are welcome.

“People want greenery back as they need the warmth of something natural and alive” says Christine Shanahan,  director of design at HVS Design. A lot of prestigious hotels are now focused on providing people an experience that connects them with nature’s elements.

One example is Peppers Noosa Resort in Queensland. This quiet retreat is set in the middle of the rainforest of Noosa National Park, providing magnificent sea views and eco-friendly accommodations.

3. Furnishing

When it comes to furnishing, velvet and other rich materials will be seen more and move. These tend to create a feeling of warmth and comfort during colder seasons. Instead of using modern furniture, we see a lot of hotels moving towards traditional antique-style furniture.

Hotels are now more inclined towards focusing on their heritage and history through their designs, be it furniture, walls, paintings or even service. Through the years, studies have shown that travellers prefer valuable experiences instead of tangible objects. They seek the comfort they get at home, which is why it is important to make the hotel rooms and public areas feel more homely and residential. One example is the QT Resort’s colourful custom furniture in Sydney.

In order to contribute to the hotel heritage, a lot of hotels in Australia are now inclined towards custom built furniture instead of ready-made furniture. Darren Palmer also addresses the fact that the demand for custom hotel furniture suppliers in Australia will continue to rise in 2019 as more and more hotels and resorts want their furniture to also reflect a lifestyle.

Be ready to see a change in sitting arrangements too, as we have seen a rising trend of using indoor furniture for outdoor purposes. It does make sense given the warm climate of Australia, but in 2019, this trend is expected to grow. We also have seen the rise in the usage of pod-like areas.

These areas are generally used by people who prefer a bit of privacy in public places like the lobby, restaurants, and outdoor gardens. As custom hotel furniture suppliers in Australia, we also expect to see a lot of changes in the design of furniture this year.

5 Interesting uses of Glass, Ceramic & Resin for your Resort

Glass is not believed to be a man-made product. Scientists claim that Mother Nature creates glass as well. Glass is formed when a molten material cools so rapidly that there is not enough time for a crystalline structure to form. For example, if lava from a volcano cools down rapidly a glass like rock is formed called obsidian. A wide variety of styles and uses makes glass decor a popular choice for many hotels and resorts.

Glass is made up of materials like sand, soda, ash and limestone. This makes glass completely recyclable. Recycled glass not only saves resources, it also is beneficial to the manufacturers as this recycled glass can substitute for 95% of raw materials.

recycled glass furniture

Resin is a solid, highly viscous substance of either plant or synthetic origin. Natural resin is secreted by plants and is used to manufacture various products. Resin furniture is made from synthetic resins. Synthetic resins behave like the natural ones, and also share some common properties. Therefore, consumers concerned about the environment may find this class of furniture a suitable alternative.

synthetic resins for furniture

Resin furniture is often used together with wood to make unique and creative designs. When you shop for patio pieces you can find everything from tables and chairs to gliders and swings. These types of furniture come in a variety of colours, sizes, and design styles.

Read on to know about a few interesting uses of glass and resins for your hotel or resort furniture.

 

1. Mosaics

For a stunning touch to your interior design, we can use glass or ceramic pieces to create an intricate mosaic that will catch the eye of your guests. These mosaics are set in stone or wood and can be used as a feature wall, flooring, or even a luxury table top.

 

2. Stained glass

The colour of glass can be changed by simply adding metallic salts during the manufacturing process. For example, adding Chromium gives the glass a deep green colour. This stained glass effect is often used in windows, creating colourful patterns when the light shines through.

A look at Hotels & Tourism in Fiji

Fiji, officially known as the Republic of Fiji is an island country in the South Pacific. Fiji is among the most developed islands in the Pacific. Tourism and travel contributes majorly to the economy. The most popular regions are the Coral Coast, Nadi, Denarau Island and Mamanuca Islands.

fiji furniture

Fiji is probably best known for its white sandy beaches and soft coral reefs. Fantastic diving spots also adds a touch of adventure to the beauty of these islands. Whether you are on a honeymoon, or need a family getaway spot, or simply want to enjoy a solo trip, Fiji will not disappoint you.

 

Tourism on the Rise in the Fiji islands

Fiji consists of more than 300 islands spread across roughly 1.3 million square km of ocean. Because of this, its aviation industry is highly developed despite being a small nation. The country is home to 19 commercial airfields, plus seven private airports.

Arrival Hall at Nadi International Airport, Fiji

Over the years, an increase in direct flights to key destinations in Fiji has played a major role in the increase of tourism to the country.

Visitor arrivals have continued to increase over the past 20 years. In 1993, visitor arrivals stood at 318,874 which increased to 660,590 by 2012, an average increase of around 4.5 percent annually. In 2017, Fiji welcomed more than 840,000 visitors, and the numbers are continuing to increase.

 

Hotels & Resorts in Fiji

sofitel resort Fiji

Sofitel Resort, Denarau Island, Fiji

Fiji has over 50 hotels and resort spread across its two largest islands, as well as some of the smaller ones. In Fiji you will find many hotels that offer facilities of international standards. Alternatively, you can also choose to stay at the village to experience the real Fiji. Backpackers and adventurers are also well looked after, with a huge range of affordable hostels and island resorts that offer eco-tours.

In order to keep up to international standards for tourists, Fiji resort furniture suppliers are in high demand. These suppliers have a huge responsibility of keeping themselves up-to-date with the latest trends in furniture designs. Most resort and hotel owners look for a custom hotel furniture supplier. These suppliers customise the furniture to suit your preferences, keeping in mind the aesthetics of the hotel.

 

Furniture and the Fiji Climate

Fiji is blessed with a warm, tropical climate. During the period from March to November, the southeast trade winds bring dry weather. Fiji has rainy season from December to April. The tropical coastal climate brings along its fair share of surprises. In comparison to The Maldives, Fiji weather is quite similar, although the air is not as saline.

Not all materials used for furniture can withstand these drastic weather changes and begin to fall apart quickly. Even the most durable of fabrics used for upholstery break down if not maintained properly.
Vacuuming once a month and spot cleaning can go a long way in maintaining the fabrics. Patterned fabrics, tone on tone or textured fabric make the furniture look better for longer as compared to plain single colours.

Choosing the right furniture for your Fiji Hotels & Resorts

Currently, the usual Fiji furniture for resorts tend to be simple and functional. However, the trend is now moving towards more contemporary styles as tourists to Fiji become more design conscious.

With the majority of Fiji’s tourists come from Australia, Fiji is quickly developing to be a leading beach holiday destination, rivalling the nearby island of Bali in Indonesia – a popular hotspot for Australian tourists.

fiji resort furniture suppliers

When selecting furniture for hotel rooms, it is important to understand that the Fiji climate is humid. Memory foam mattresses absorb heat and can begin to sag if used for longer periods of time. Hence spring mattresses or latex mattresses are a better choice. Also for mattresses covers, bed sheets, pillow cases it is wiser to choose breathable fabrics like cotton with light colours.

Hotel furnishing trends concentrate more on common areas and lobbies, giving the guests an opportunity to leave their rooms more often and socialize.

One point to keep in mind when choosing furniture for public areas is to ensure that the furniture pieces are developed with sturdy construction and strong joints for seating. These should also be built strong enough to accommodate guests of various weights or sizes.

luxury fiji resort furniture suppliers

Fijian hotels also give importance to waiting areas. Considering the lunch rush hours or the dinner queues, having a large group of customers waiting inside for their meals is not a pleasant idea. Not only do they get in the servers’ way but also do not let the patrons currently having their meals enjoy them.

Fiji Furniture Manufacturers

Keeping in the mind the warm climate that the waiting customers will have to face outside, these hotels and resorts have pleasantly furnished waiting areas. These waiting rooms make sure that the customers do not wander away searching for food elsewhere.

Suppliers You Should Know: Onestop

Originally published on Hotelier Maldives.

The Maldivian hospitality industry has today grown to a level previously unthought of. With the country labelled as one of the top luxury destinations, guests expect the very best in all aspects of a resort. The design and furnishings of a resort are key to creating a lasting impression and ensuring a luxury tropical island vacation for all visitors.

In the “Suppliers You Should Know” segment of Hotelier Maldives issue 33, we put the spotlight on some of the leading furniture suppliers. Here, we take a brief look at Onestop.

 

Have you introduced any new products?

We unveiled our A+F range during the Guesthouses Maldives Conference 2017. Unlike large resorts and hotel chains, guesthouses often have limited budgets for international marketing and trade shows. However, there is growing support for guesthouses to work together with the government to promote this market overseas.

The Onestop display at the conference showcased four different room styles, including loose furniture and accessories. During the event, guests were able to view the actual furniture and even test it out. We are currently working on an outdoor range of furniture that will be launched towards the end of 2018.

 

What makes your products stand out from the rest of the competition?

We are consultants with well-versed backgrounds in design and engineering. We have our client’s best interests at heart, and with everything we have learned over the years, we’ll guide our clients through each stage of a project, from idea to design and engineering to the finished product. Our technically qualified staff will help translate an idea into a workable vision that fits perfectly into any development’s needs.

 

What makes your company unique?

Instead of the typical assembly-line process adopted by other hotel furniture manufacturers, our projects are underpinned by our unique blend of Chinese high-tech machine-centric production and traditional Indonesian craft techniques. Our strengths come from a combination of skills and expertise rooted in various manufacturing techniques – both modern and traditional. Most importantly, we employ a close collaborative process to ensure every project’s success.

Why More Hotels in the Philippines are using Custom Contract Furniture

Customised furniture in the Philippines is getting to be a growing trend. This includes hotel furniture in the Philippines, as well as furniture for restaurants, bars or cafes.

There are many reasons why hotels might opt for custom contract furniture, rather than off-the-shelf or ready-made furniture.

Some of the main benefits of choosing customised furniture include getting urgent projects done on time, finding a unique solution to your needs, or working together with a reliable team that can deliver according to your requirements.

 

Onestop Customised Hotel Furniture Philippines

china furniture manufacturer - onestop china factory

Shipping your furniture from China is extremely cost effective due to free trade agreements between China and the Philippines. With 19% of all goods imported to the Philippines coming from China, and Philippines being part of the ASEAN Community, a number of taxes and duties are greatly diminished, and shipping costs can be close to zero. Usually, the shipper would only need to pay taxes and land charges for goods imported to the Philippines from China.

 

Our Custom Contract Furniture projects in the Philippines

Over the years, Onestop has provided custom furniture solutions for a range of leading hotels and resorts around the world. Some of our projects in the Philippines the prestigious I’M Hotel – the first 5-star hotel in the Poblacion district of Makati.

4 Easy Tips To make your Teak Furniture last longer

Teak is an exceptionally durable wood and is a popular choice for hotel and resort furniture. The wood is particularly ideal for outdoor use, such as patio and garden furniture. Teak is stronger than many other hardwoods due to its natural oil finish. This helps it to withstand harsh weather conditions better than other kinds of wood, and even protects it from moisture as well as insects.

Because of its unique properties, teak is much sought after. Teak furniture is often used in tropical or coastal climates, such as in the Maldives, Philippines, Singapore and more.

 

Indoor and Outdoor Teak Furniture for Resorts

Teak furniture can be used for a number of uses, both indoor and outdoor. It can also come in different finishes, whether natural, oiled, sealed & varnished. Although teak is very strong and durable, it still requires care in order to last even longer.

Of course, outdoor furniture would require a little more care than indoor teak furniture.

 

Caring for your Teak Furniture

There are several important steps that you can take to ensure your teak furniture lasts a long time. A little maintenance can go a long way Here are just a few tips you can follow.

 

1. Cleaning

Keep your teak wood clean. This can be done using a soft cloth, sponge, or brush. Keeping your teak free from a build-up of dirt is just the first step to making your teak last longer.

 

2. Following the Grain

teak furniture singapore grain

When cleaning, always be sure to follow the direction of the wood grain to prevent unnecessary scratching. Also avoid using rough brushes or cleaning equipment that may scratch your wood.

 

3. Oiling your Teak

This is not necessarily to do with maintenance, but rather in helping your wood to retain its colour. Oiling your teak is more applicable for indoor furniture. Before beginning, ensure that you have thoroughly cleaned your furniture to remove old oils. Once this is done, re-oiling can help to restore its original look.

 

4. Natural Colouring

Outdoor teak furniture will eventually change from a deep brown to an elegant silver-grey. On the other hand, indoor teak furniture will gradually become darker brown over a period of perhaps a year. these are natural changes which do not affect the quality or durability of your teak.

In summary, while teak furniture may be a very durable and long-lasting type of wood, its important to know how to care for your teak furniture properly to keep your teak looking beautiful for years to come.
