Nowadays it takes more than just a good price, clean sheets, and room service to make a hotel a memorable destination. Hotels all over the world are embracing up-and-coming design trends to make their decor stand out from the rest. 

From art deco elements to spa-like bathrooms, here are eight hotel upholstery and furniture trends that can transform a space from rest stop to stylish zen vacation.

Booths and Banquettes


Nothing says comfort and luxury like a high-backed booth. Hotel restaurants can benefit from adding comfortable, stylish leather booths to their decor to instantly create a sophisticated atmosphere. Booths and banquettes are easily customizable with several different tufting options, such as diamond tufting, biscuit tufting, and button-back styles.

Sustainable Materials


Sustainability is not just a trend — it’s a way of living that we should all be more aware of. Let’s hope we see more eco-friendly upholstery and sustainable design in the future. 

You can find “green” hotels such as Starhotels Echo that use natural furnishings and environmentally certified fabric, low-consumption lighting, low-water consumption taps, and thermo-insulated walls.

Bold Patterns and Wallpaper


Gone are the days of boring beige hotel rooms. In the next few years, expect to see splashes of bold color, wild prints, bright linens, and Instagram-worthy wallpaper.

Retro Style


Hotels know that combining the modern comforts of today with the lavish decor of yesteryear is the key to a memorable experience. 

One interior design trend for modern hotels is embracing an art deco look. Retro light fixtures, tufted back leather bar stools, and lush green and gold colors make the bar at The Norman in Tel Aviv a five-star design.

Multi-Use Spaces


As the world around us evolves, more and more people are setting up an office at home or traveling across the country for work. Multi-use spaces, such as rooftop lounges and open-space lobbies, include Wi-Fi, efficient lighting, comfortable couches and chairs, as well as laptop-level tables and desks so that you can get your work done and relax at the same time.

Spa Bathrooms


The bathroom shouldn’t be an exception to carefully thought out details and designs. Hotel bathrooms can be calming oases — a zen space where you can wind down after a long day. Oversized modern tubs, large mirrors and chandeliers contrasted with wicker and wood elements create a wonderful spa-like environment.

Peaceful Outdoor Areas


A hotel courtyard is a great place for social gatherings and outdoor dining, and can even serve as an escape from your room to read a book or enjoy a cup of coffee. 

Weather-durable couches and armchairs, steel tables, and bistro lights can create a romantic atmosphere while also being easy to rearrange and clean.

Extreme Coziness


Trends come and go, but when it comes to hotels, one thing is always true: a good hotel room should feel like a home away from home. 

Comfort is essential, and cozy throw pillows, soft lighting, big armchairs, and fireplaces are all timeless elements of an ultra homey hotel that will keep visitors coming back time and time again.
