to generational shifts, as Millennial travelers usurp Baby
Boomers as the most coveted demographic. Millennials
seek out experience above all else when they're staying
at a hotel, McInturf says. "To meet that demand, we're
tweaking our product to make more personalized
experiences."
In lobbies or restaurants, for example, instead of
the barstool matching the dining room chair that
matches a chair in the waiting area, now there is
variety: a wood dining chair, a metal barstool, and an
industrial-looking booth all in one spot. "It creates a lot
of interest," McInturf says.
Kelley Karvandi, design coordinator at D'style says
mixing materials like wood and metal creates "a few
special pieces [for customers] that simply define a space and
make it unforgettable." Because those pieces are not always
readily available, D'style works with designers to craft unique
furnishings envisioned for a design. Lately, she says, they've been
creating designs with custom brass, bronze, and blackened steel
finishes.
"Customers are tired of the mass produced and cheaply made
furniture of previous decades," Hunt explains. "They are now
clamoring for high-quality, irreplaceable furnishings that will
withstand even the highest level of use while still maintaining a
'like new' appearance."
Designers, too, want to flex their creative muscles. They are
drawn to modifying products because it allows them to "put their
own style into it," says McInturf. At Shelby Williams, working
with designers who crave originality means "meeting the fastpaced world of what designers are doing" and giving them a
standout rather than more of the same. ❙❘❚
