BDNY (Boutique Design New York) 2022 Recap
If you’re planning a hotel project in 2023, you want your design and FF&E provider to be up to date on the latest trends and products so your hotel can impress guests while properly reflecting your brand, style, and taste. It’s also beneficial for your FF&E consultants, logistics managers, and designers to interact with others in the industry in person to gain perspective and build valuable relationships and connections that can benefit your result and bottom line.
One way Innvision stays ahead is by attending hospitality industry events such as the annual BDNY trade fair and conference. This event brings together “designers, architects, purchasing agents, hoteliers, owners, and developers with inventive manufacturers of design elements for hospitality interiors for a highly curated experience.”
In this post, you’ll learn our highlights from the conference and what we plan to bring back to our clients.
Hospitality Design Trends at BDNY
At BDNY 2022, we noticed a few prominent trends: feminine design, tones and textures, innovations in smaller spaces, and ongoing biophilic design.
This year, there were many elements of feminine design throughout the show. For example, we saw softer tones and colors alongside organic forms and shapes within the furniture. The industry is moving more towards organic designs and away from the geometric designs of past years.
Tones & Textures
We also noticed the use of different textures within the same tone with pops of bold artwork. For example, we saw sand-colored furniture with throw pillows of the same tone, varying textures, and bright artwork featuring orange and red.
There have been recent innovations in designing small hotel spaces. For example, we saw headboards with an attached lounge chair to save space, making for a great, compact design. Case goods with wallcovering also presented a fresh and unique design look.
While we saw many shifting trends at BDNY 2022, some past trends have withstood the test of time. Biophilic design is one that has only increased in popularity within hospitality’s boutique and lifestyle design community to bring the outdoors in and the indoors out. We observed the use of organic materials throughout the show, with rattan featured in many products.
At Innvision, we apply what we’ve seen and learned at the BDNY conference and other industry sources to benefit our clients and their projects. We share this knowledge internally across our team so we can immediately begin implementing these latest trends into future designs.
