How hotel furniture should be


Categories: Hotels, Restaurants and Shopping Centres

Choosing the furniture for a hotel is quite a job and demands having to think about the different room spaces in the facility. No matters if we are facing a large hotel resort or a small one. Anyone, regardless its dimension, will have different zones which require a concrete hotel furniture type: reception, multi-purpose rooms, dining-room....and above all, bedrooms.

Let's look carefully at each of the hotel room spaces and what the furniture needs are.

Furniture for a hotel bedroom

Undoubtly, the main issue when time comes to choose hotel furniture is bedrooms. Room size is to be considered, as well as they type of guest expected at the hotel. At SELLEX, we offer a  folding bed and bunkbeds system which solve the question at hotels, hostels and residences bedrooms. We talk about LA LITERAL series, a design of Lievore Altherr Molina. This LA LITERAL model can be found at hostels bedrooms such as DAN HOSTEL in Kopenhagen (Denmark), but also as a part of the bedroom equipment at smaller hotels. Such is the case of Petit Palace hotel chain that has trusted our LA LITERAL beds program for many of their 3 and 5 stars hotels in Madrid, Malaga, Barcelone, Seville, or Valence.



LA LITERAL folding beds and bunkbeds allow space saving as they hardly take 30cm depth when closed, that's to say even less than a chairs does.

Above said, a hotel can count on double, triple, cuadruple, quintuple or  even more, bedrooms. While at hostels, LA LITERAL gives the chance to have 12 people accomodated in 24m2 space.

Furniture for multi-purpose rooms

Besides bedrooms, hotels and hostels usually count on multi-purpose spaces in which different kind of events may take place: a working meting, a seminar, a book's presentation, a musical act and so on...Thus, a multi-purpose room at a hotel should need a multi-purpose furniture too. FAST Table, designed by Carlos Tíscar, is just a good example of the type of furniture these spaces require. It is a folding and knock-down table which allows to use different size and shape tops with the same frame, and have the chance to make the table composition required at each event.

Relaxing at the hotel

Other hotel spaces are aimed just to relax: a Reading room, a lobby where to quietly wait...Models known as ‘lounge chairs' are very suitable for these relaxing areas, meaning low seatings like our models BACK, STILL or HAMMOK, all designed by Burkhard Vogtherr. Also VALERI lounge chair  or SLAM, both a design of Lievore Altherr Molina, are ideal for this type of spaces

Whereas the type of table suitable for a hotel  lobby or chill-out area, the best choicee are auxiliary tables. At SELLEX, we offer two designs which fit finely into these spaces: EKER Table, designed by Lievore Altherr Molina and MIX Table, by O.T.S.

Tables and chairs for bar-restaurante

Almost all hotels and hostels have a bar or restaurant.For this purpose, we will need a furniture suitable for hospitality, which means a good design easy to maintain.

We will be able to cover all needs with our versatile SLAM chairs program (Lievore Altherr Molina) and the new barstool series, SET by Mario Ruiz, which combines with ZUBI High Tables, by Abad Diseño.
