A small yet smartly designed hotel suite can not only be luxurious, but can also provide all the comfort, spaciousness, and boutique hotel amenities today’s demanding traveler requires.
New York, NY (PRWEB) October 01, 2014
Resource Furniture, North America’s largest retailer of space saving furniture, will present Hotel Resource, an innovative, luxury hotel micro-suite that will be revealed at Dwell on Design New York, October 9-11 at 82 Mercer Street. The 240-square-foot hotel micro-suite was designed by Resource Furniture to demonstrate how a small yet smartly designed hotel suite can not only be luxurious, but can also provide all the comfort, spaciousness, and boutique hotel amenities today’s demanding traveler requires, including an eight-foot reclining sofa, work space, mini-bar, media center, and conference/dining facilities for up to six people.
With the average luxury U.S. hotel suite estimated to be 600 square feet, excluding the bathroom, Hotel Resource shows how the same comfort, high-end amenities and features found in these luxury suites can be easily provided in less than half of that amount of space.
Among the exclusive new products debuting at Dwell on Design is Tango, the latest sofa/wall bed innovation from Clei; Smart Living, a revolutionary new media center that conceals a dining/work table plus seating for six; and the Kinetic Collection – a unique collaboration between award-winning, Brooklyn-based design studio Think Fabricate and Resource Furniture.
Designed for both hospitality and residential applications, Kinetic is an exciting new collection of high-end, innovative, multifunctional furniture not previously available in the market. Proudly designed and made in Brooklyn, each piece is obviously beautiful, secretly clever and profoundly functional. The first three Kinetic pieces that will debut at Dwell on Design New York are Lift, Hide & Seek and Slide, and together they transform Hotel Resource into the home-away-from-home every boutique hotel guest is looking for.
Lift is a perfectly proportioned coffee table designed to function as a work station and storage space for remotes, laptops and magazines. Hide & Seek is a modular, customizable, wall-mounted cabinet system that cleverly conceals a wide variety of functions. For this installation, Hide & Seek contains a bar, an espresso maker, and an ironing center. Completing the room is the Slide, a beautifully crafted credenza with a secret mini refrigerator and storage drawers.
The Tango modular sofa/wall bed system features dual reclining sofa seats and the finest Italian upholstery. With a wide variety of available components, Tango is making its North American debut as the latest multifunctional furniture innovation from Clei, the global leader in transformable furniture design for more than 50 years. The result of years of research and development, Tango features a high-end, modular sofa and hidden queen wall bed. Resource Furniture will also unveil the freestanding Smart Living media system, which cleverly conceals a complete dining set/work space for six behind the rotating television panel.
