Modernizing Hotel Lobbies

Modernizing Hotel Lobbies

I read an article in USA Today recently about how major hotel brands such as Marriott, Hilton, and Hyatt are updating the feel and look of their hotel lobbies so that their guests are more comfortable, productive and happy, which is great for travelers!

As I was reading the article, I wasn’t surprised that these brands are also using modern furniture to spice up the experience of their customers. In reality, almost anything is going to be better than the pastel patterned furniture that was prominent in the ’80s and ’90s, but I’m glad to see that the people in charge of hospitality for these big brands are making strides to be in line with the trends of today.

It’s not only hotels, but I’ve been seeing more and more businesses and organizations with common rooms opting to use a modern style for these spaces. And why wouldn’t they? Modern furniture stylistically has become widely sought after recently, and has a timeless feel to it. I can imagine that these types of organizations will continue to focus more on what makes people happy, and right now, modern furniture is the thing that’s going to make people more comfortable.

Mid Century Modern Furniture: What’s the deal?

Why is mid century modern furniture so popular right now?

Well, that’s not an easy answer. Mid century modern furniture can mean many things depending on who you speak with.

Simplicity

One of the great things about mid century modern furniture is that it really focuses in on a minimal and simplistic approach. The focus is on functionality rather than on complexity. With mid century modern furniture, the colors are often very simple. Maybe black, white, a dark finished wood, or a rad. Other than that, color is saved for any accents that might be present in the room.

Elegance

Elegance and simplicity often go hand in hand, and with mid century modern furniture, there’s no difference. Elegant design is one of the key elements of what defines truly modern furniture.

Design

Design might be an obvious way to define what mid century modern furniture is. Of course, it’s going to look a certain way and conform to a certain set of standards that is common for all mid century modern furniture, but the way that the whole category of furniture is conceptualized and built really differentiates mid century modern furniture from other types and styles of furniture.

For me, I like the way that modern furniture looks. Maybe it’s because I’ve got a simple outlook. Maybe it’s because I like the clean and polished look. Who knows. What are your thoughts? Is mid century modern furniture the best thing that has happened to the furniture world, or is it an over-hyped fad? What kinds of furniture do you prefer?

Iconic Modern Pieces: The Eames Lounge Chair

Eames Lounge ChairThe Eames Lounge Chair was designed by Charles and Ray Eames in 1956. This is a classic example of the mid-century modern movement. The Eames chair has lasted for over 50 years, and is still a popular choice today.

It was originally produced by the Herman Miller Company. Herman Miller is still producing this model today. While the Herman Miller variety can be very pricey, there are some brands that have imitated the design of the Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman, and can be found more moderately priced.
