Year in Review: Top 7 furniture products from 2021

With more to celebrate in Hotel Designs’ ‘Spotlight On’ feature this month, we are shifting our focus to furniture. To do this, our editorial team have been whittled down this year’s new furniture items to a list of just seven stand-out pieces. Our ‘top picks’ list includes curves, comfort and cutting-edge design…

spotlight on the sideways sofa and cabinet by carl hanson & son

Forget about a bucket list, investing in furniture rather than a flight seems a whole lot more appealing right now as we all settle into staycation mode! These furniture designs are the standouts from a year full of creative content, and between them they tick a full range of boxes; starting with the eco-conscious Leo range by Adrenalina, and moving down the list to end with the cutting-edge concept of 3D-printed furniture, we’ve got it all covered!


Table Place Chairs: Circle of Life (as seen at HIX)

In collaboration with Stansons, Circle of Life is a structural free-standing framework with hanging recycled plastic curtains, which can be seen in the Table Place and Chairs’ new home in Clerkenwell. The sustainable products was the answer for Conran and Partners, Areen Design and stroop design recently for their three installations at HIX.

Carl Hansen & Søn: Sideways Sofa (as seen at HIX)

The Sideways Sofa, part of the WFHotel installation at HIX this year, is, quite simply, beautiful. From the curve of the seat to the materials used, and the intricate design details of its structure, it is a sculptural piece of furniture that is as much as a design statement as a place of comfort and refuge along with a strong coffee and a good book.

Crosswater: Artist

With the conversation about wellness getting louder, the bathroom has become an integral part of the design process rather than a practical add-on. With this in mind it seemed appropriate to include the Artist range by Crosswater in our furniture list for 2021 as it crosses those boundaries elegantly.

Fredericia: The Spanish Chair (as seen at HIX)

The Spanish Chair in wood and leather by Fredericia

Despite its name this is a Danish design that has all the lines and details of a modern classic. Beautifully constructed with strong simple lines and attention to and combination of materials make this chair both practical and decorative.

Minotti: Superquadra

The strong architectural lines of this range by Brazilian designer Marcio Kogan for Minotti, are what make these pieces stand out. The graphic minimalism of the design is contrasted with an exciting combination of materials that create a strong design statement.

Morgan: Lugano

The Lugano collection has been described by designer Rock Galpin as being ‘like a human hug’ with its well proportioned wrap around contours. Beuatifully designed, and beautifully made, you can read more about the collaborative journey of this chair in our interview with Morgan and Galpin earlier this year.

Yasmin Mahmoudieh: The Flow Chair

It seems fitting to end this list by looking firmly forward into the future, although with this range it feels very definitely like the future is now! Made from plastic waste, this design harnesses technology from materials right through to production and opens up the conversation about the future of furniture production.

Innovation in shower design: introducing Crossbox Push by Crosswater

Innovation in shower design: introducing Crossbox Push by Crosswater

One year on from the successful launch of the original Crossbox – a single universal installation box with multiple trim set designs – Crosswater has extended the range with the introduction of Crossbox Push

Crossbox Push is Crosswater’s recently launched shower unit, which has evolved out of the success of Crossbox that launched last year. It comprises an all-metal backplate, rotary and temperature control which delivers a high-quality, premium feel – with five different MPRO trim-sets available.

Available in a two or three outlet variant, the new coloured trim-sets offer enhanced choice, allowing the homeowner to select a trim design that will complement their existing décor.  Intelligent push technology relies on NEOPERL® ABS push buttons and FSG cartridge to provide a seamless showering experience, the user can easily transition between sources or alternatively, stop the flow completely.

Comfort and safety is guaranteed with the vernet thermostatic cartridge technology, this means that whilst the temperature will be regulated, if there was a sudden change in water temperature, the thermostatic cartridge can adapt quickly and return the water to its comfortable pre-set temperature. Flühs precise 45-degree rotation, allows the water flow to be easily adjusted.

Extremely easy to install, the Crossbox Push device requires installation via one single universal installation core. Enhanced with deeper 16.5mm projection, the backplate can easily accommodate the push technology whilst retaining its sleek aesthetic.

Developed with all of the intelligent features seen in the original Crossbox design but with an enhanced trim, the new Crossbox Push benefits from the built-in ‘Easy-Switch’ module, to allow for simple and quick flow reversal if the feeds are plumbed the wrong way around making it an ideal choice for installers and retailers alike.

While you’re here, why not check out the Matt White finishes in Crosswater’s MPRO Collection?

With ease of installation and ease of use at the forefront of its design, Crossbox Push is, in our opinion, the perfect addition to the modern bathroom and ideal for lifestyle hotels that are looking to future-proof their showers.

A natural living finish, this new addition to the collection is specifically designed and manufactured to oxidise over time, resulting in a changing, unique look which offers even more personality to the bathroom.

Its silky smooth and reflective surface makes it ideal for achieving a high-end and modern look in period-style bathrooms and is strikingly coordinated against the details of Belgravia’s white glazed ceramic levers.

Features of the range include elaborate bath fillers, traditional shower handsets, exposed shower valves and decadent showerheads, all sympathetically curated in the style and essence of the Victorian era.

Perfect for those looking to embrace the trend for natural materials in the home, the wood veneer finish offers customers a refined take on the ever-popular ‘rough luxe’ interior design style, whilst still retaining all of the range’s signature functionality.

Pair the Driftwood finish with timeless white bathroom fittings to achieve a minimalist Scandinavian space, or for a more dramatic style, look to a darker colour palette. Expertly crafted from superior quality and durable materials, the Driftwood finish offers a deep grained hard-wearing surface, ideal for withstanding the hustle and bustle of day-to-day living.

Reflecting time-honoured cabinet making skills, the entire Glide ll range epitomises fantastic value, no matter the finish you choose. Designed to cover a variety of individual preferences, select from the collection’s three alternative finishes in Wenge, American Walnut or White Gloss for a crisp and contemporary bathroom design.

Offering ample storage space, a concealed pull down laundry drawer and user-friendly soft closing drawers, the furniture solutions are perfect for creating a practical and stylish space designed to suit the whole family. For a clutter free environment from all of the family’s essentials, choose from multiple layout concepts that sit neatly inside the pull out, soft closing drawers for effortless organisation.

Bauhaus Svelte

Product Spotlight: New corner unit joins Svelte range by Bauhaus

1013 386 Daniel Fountain

Space-saving design without compromising on style, the new Svelte corner unit is the latest addition to Bauhaus’ best-selling Svelte furniture collection.

Making the most of every inch of space, the wall-mounted unit is the smart choice for smaller bathrooms and cloakrooms. A hugely practical offering, Svelte’s signature curves and seamless finish have been incorporated into this stylishly compact unit that fits perfectly into most corners.

Deep double drawers provide ample storage for toiletries and cleaning material, with up to 40kg capacity for heavier items, and are complete with soft close runners to provide a smooth and quiet closing motion.

Offering a look to suit all bathing spaces, Svelte Corner is available in four contemporary finishes: Matt Coffee, Eucalyptus, American Walnut and White Gloss.

Complemented against the crisp white surface of the inset marble basin, opt for a minimalist look with a combination of white-on-white, or combine with the warm tones of the wood-effect finish for a luxurious, hotel-inspired appeal.

As with all designs in the Svelte collection, the lacquered and veneered finishes feature a ground-breaking and permanent anti-bacterial treatment called ACTIVE, as standard. ACTIVE guarantees unlimited protection and reduces the proliferation of common bacteria by more than 99%, making this the ideal choice for busy family bathrooms.

Svelte Corner Unit with Cast Mineral Marble Basin:
Eucalyptus: £1,159
White Gloss: £1,029
American Walnut: £1,159
Matt Coffee: £1,064

Pier Range - Simpson's

Bathroom Accessory Focus: Pier range by Simpsons

750 364 Daniel Fountain

Bathroom furniture allows designers to add additional storage space while also completing a room’s finish. Often, dead space under sinks is a difficult spot to fill successfully – with plumbing and piping to cover up – so using units is a brilliant way of solving this problem; and at the same time adding a cleaner finish to the look of the room.

The units within the Pier range by Simpsons are a perfect example of stylish units to complete bathroom furnishings. With a range of mobile and fixed units – with cast mineral marble basins included – the Pier furniture selection offers finishes to fit numerous overall styles, being both aesthetically appealing and practical. The three finishes of Anthracite, Steel and Ebony will especially complement hotel designers going for colourless bathrooms.

Likewise, for designers dealing with spaces too small to install a bath, choosing a small shower enclosure with a hinged or sliding door is the most practical option; both of which are included in the Pier range.
