Furnishings that are equally at home in residential and hospitality interiors
Interior designers once chose radicallydifferent products depending on the market: residential, contract, or hospitality. These days, however, the lines have blurred, and offices have lounges and casual eating areas; boutique hotels frequently offer a lived-in, residential feel; and private homes boast lavish, spalike bathrooms. Manufacturers have taken notice, producing objects that complement a full range of interiors. Marset’s Ledtube wall lamp, for example, is ideal for a hotel room but wouldn’t feel out of place in your bedroom either. And Janus et Cie’s Forest armchair is comfy enough for indoor repose, but its powder-coated aluminium finish will weather any storm. The products shown here, from Boss Design’s stylish new lounge chair to Whitespace’s high-performance broadloom carpeting, provide versatile solutions for any environment.
