Nusa Collection: A new Range in Luxury Island Furniture

Furniture and furnishings have been a part of civilization ever since the beginning of time. The cave men made use of naturally available materials like rocks and stones to make his shoddy furniture. As the times have evolved, so has man’s choice of furniture. We look for high class furniture that not only is in union with the aesthetics of the surroundings, we also want them to be durable and long lasting.

Starting in 2019, Onestop is putting together an annual in-house catalogue of unique products that we offer.
 

Introducing Nusa Collection Outdoor Range

Our new Nusa Collection brings together an assortment of island inspired furniture pieces, specially constructed by our craftsmen in Indonesia. This range offers coffee tables, dining tables, sofas, sun beds. Each of these is carefully designed to create an oasis of tranquil island living anywhere in the world.

1 - custom synthetic wicker furniture

The materials offered in the Nusa Collection include solid teak, synthetic wicker, and a variety of outdoor fabrics. As a native to tropical climate, teak is resistant to sea spray and environmental challenges. Teak is not only durable; it also has tactile dimensional qualities.

Fibres and fabrics are important in order to give the furniture a classy look and add the upholstery when required.

These qualities allow these materials to be cleaned without fearing fading off of the colours.

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 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.

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, 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.

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.

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.

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

Choosing the right partner for fully customised furniture can be a daunting task. That’s why our custom furniture consultants focus on providing top quality service, to guide you through each step of the way.

From the initial discussion till project completion, our team is ready to provide input in design, material selection, shipping and assembly.

Affordable Shipping Rates from China to The Philippines

Onestop maintains a fully owned and managed furniture factory in Guandong, China. The factory employs over 200 craftspeople and highly-skilled artisans.

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.

Custom vs Ready-Made: Finding the perfect Furniture Solution for your resort

Selecting furniture for your resort is an exciting process. There are so many styles and manufacturers to choose from, and each item you pick will shape the look and feel of your property. Deciding between ready-made and custom pieces may be the first step you take on this journey. There are several factors worth considering when choosing your resort furniture.

1. Don’t forget the climate

Many luxury hotels and resorts are located in places known for their hot, sunny weather, like Hawaii, Bora Bora and the Maldives, and Seychelles. However, humid air, salty sea breezes and endless bright days can quickly destroy furniture that’s not made with the climate in mind. To avoid having to replace tables, chairs and other pieces every few months, ordering custom made resort furniture from a company familiar with your local environment is a smart move.

 

2. Resort Furniture, Just the way you want it

Every piece of furniture should enhance a resort’s ambience . This is something pre-made items can’t always do. After all, a bed picked from a catalogue can’t match the appeal of an ornate four-poster model designed to fit perfectly under the high ceilings of a luxury suite. If your property has a specific theme or incorporates local culture into its look, you may find industrially-manufactured furniture doesn’t capture its spirit. For instance, a mass-produced chair probably won’t mesh with a tapa cloth from Fiji or an ornate Balinese carving.

 

3. When you can’t wait

How about if you need to order something fast? This could be a replacement for a broken dining table, perhaps. Ordering a bespoke piece of furniture might not be a wise idea. Ready-made items are often available for immediate shipping and will arrive at your property in a few days or weeks. A custom order, however, may require much longer. The exact time would depend on the complexity of the piece and the availability of the craftspeople you hire.

 

4. Differences in Resort Furniture cost

Pre-made furniture is often less expensive than something bespoke. Replacement parts for mass-produced items are usually easier to find and cheaper, too, so review your budget before placing an order. However, don’t forget that custom-made pieces are often stronger, making them better value over time.

No matter what kind of furniture you invest in, always make quality your top priority. If you go the custom route, ensure you’re working with a professional outfit that produces pieces as durable as they are appealing. For ready-made items, ask if they have tested them to reflect typical use over time. Don’t forget to enquire about warranties, either. Knowing you’re covered if something goes wrong provides peace of mind money can’t buy.
