Design of the future trend by Stacy Garcia: Acid Hip

Acid Hip: one of eight future design trends forecasted by Stacy Garcia to be used as a category for BDNY's Trend Walk

"I am excited and honored to be curating this exhibit as a way for attendees to have an exciting peek into the future of hospitality design," says Garcia.

Hospitality designers and design firms from around the world are invited to submit digital renderings for the Boutique Design New York Trend Walk. Five winning designs will be installed and on display during the show in the connector between the International Hotel, Motel + Restaurant Show (IHMRS) and BDNY.

Curated by internationally renowned designer and forecaster Stacy Garcia, the Trend Walk will showcase five conceptual displays inspired by one of eight future design trends forecasted by Garcia including Acid Hip, Calcified, Modern Rustic, Garden Party, Wild Corners of the World, Speakeasy, Dark Fairytale, and Mid-century Ideal. Each trend will incorporate products exclusively from BDNY and IHMRS exhibitors. Design trend descriptions and visuals are available on the website.

“The Trend Walk is much more than a bridge between BDNY and IHMRS, it is a bridge to the future as well. The approach we took was journalistic in nature, by collaborating with outside designers to envision the concepts without the bias of paid sponsorships. I am excited and honored to be curating this exhibit as a way for attendees to have an exciting peek into the future of hospitality design," says Garcia.

Each of the five winning trends will be provided with 15’x15’ of floor space during BDNY 2011, including 10’ high white walls and a production installation budget of up to $7,000. In addition, the winning design firms and trends will be featured in Boutique Design and Hospitality Style magazines, as well as an accompanying trend brochure for 5,000 show attendees expected at BDNY this Fall.

Submissions are due July 31, 2011. Further details and the official entry form are available at
