As a forerunner in the hospitality industry we strive to be the leading furniture supplier which ensures we keep in trend with our furniture designs and styles. This year we have seen a few changes that have shaped the interiors of restaurants, bars, hotels and even the commercial spaces.

Comfort away from home is key, we all like to get that feeling of warmth, comfort and have the feel good factor when away from our home, therefore the products we are seeing on trend in hospitality and break out spaces are comfortable with a bit of ‘squish’, using warm colours, warm materials and design led products. “The busy lives we lead and all that is going on in the world with its distractions and digital interruption, that element of escapism is required and can be achieved through a well-designed space and the most successful hospitality brands are seeking out this look and feel”

We are seeing a move from the over used shiny, bright metals, perhaps moving a bit more to the refined industrial patina on copper, zinc, brass teamed with sumptuous velvets, plenty of greenery and pops of bold colour.

The creative team at UHS Group delves into many areas of fashion, design, architecture to engage with the specifiers and provide suitable materials, colours and products. www.uhs-group.com

The ship:

MSC Meraviglia is the newest and most luxurious cruise ship to launch. With 2,760 cabins carrying up to 5,714 passengers no expense was spared – this is the fifth ship in the MSC fleet to feature a Swarovski staircase. Scared you’ll get lost? No need, passengers are given a special wristband with many functions such as an interactive map and booking system for shows, restaurants and excursions. The wristband technology can even be used by staff for face-recognition purposes! I don’t think any of the passengers will get cabin fever on this ship with a 25 meter main open deck area with pool, and also a 10 meter indoor pool with retractable roof. And if that wasn’t enough… the ship also features a Polar Aquapark with 4 water slides.

The project:

The ship offers 20 bars and lounges including an authentic American Steakhouse, and a teppanyaki and sushi restaurant. UHS Group are delighted to have been involved in furnishing the restaurant and bar areas of the ship, which offer stunning panoramic sea views. We are also looking forward to working with MSC on supplying their contract furniture for future cruise ship projects.
