    Throughout August, Hotel Designs will be putting the spotlight on two massively talked-about areas of international hotel design, namely: Hotel Concept and Flooring & Carpets…

    Next month, Hotel Designs will be digging beneath the surface to uncover the most extraordinary hotels from around the globe as we celebrate the weird, the wonderful and the very brave world of Hotel Concepts. In addition, we will be laying down all the latest from flooring and carpets as many flooring suppliers gear up to present their latest collections at London Design Week in September.

    The editorial team at Hotel Designs is always on the hunt for bold hotels that unapologetically stand out from the crowd. Next month, we want to celebrate these fine examples of truly exceptional spaces by revealing the craziest hotel concepts from around the world. We’re looking for overnight accommodation that completely challenges conventional hotel design.

    Flooring & carpets

    Technological advances in flooring manufacturing continue to dictate the trends. Vinyl can now mimic hardwood, stone, concrete and much more, while random-coloured woods – or replications of wood in vinyl or laminate – marry together to create an interesting and playful look and feel.

    Waterproof carpets are making a splash with their durable qualities making it ideal for heavily used areas in hotels. Many companies are choosing to go ‘carbon-neutral’ in an effort to be more green, and abstract patterns are making their way to the front with a number of companies using aerial shots as inspiration to create some truly unique products.

    If you’re a supplier in either of these categories and want your products to reach more than 41,000 hoteliers, interior designers and architects per month, there are plenty of ways you can get involved with these features next month, from supplying an opinion piece to working with us on a targeted mini-series.
