Blueprint-style interior hotel design in the art style of cyberpunk

A design for a hotel in the world of Tron, apparently. Thank you, AI!

Congratulations to the fourteen winners across the thirteen 2024 Hospitality Design Awards categories, and each of this year’s incredible finalists.

As you’ll see while scrolling, these awards cover essentially everything you need to outfit a hotel, glampground, restaurant, or bar.

Looking for furniture? Check out the finalists and winners below. Standout flooring? Of course. Lighting, seating, textiles, and more? Just scroll, my friend.

For this list, I’ve included an Instagram (and in one case, LinkedIn) post from the category winner. Interestingly, there are two winners in the flooring category.

However, one of the finalists really stood out to me when I attended this year’s HD Expo. I think it will be a game-changer for our boutique hotel and lodge clients.

From Functional Furnishingsquite the apt monikercomes the Armoire Kitchen. Not only is this item an innovative and attractive space-saving device, I think it would perform very well with wall beds.

Not to be confused with Murphy beds, wall beds flip up against the wall to save space. When flipped down, they could flank the Armoire Kitchen. Conversely, when flipped up and away to save space, the Armoire Kitchen doors should be able to open fully without interference from the wall beds.

Boutique hotel, motel, lodge, and glamping site operators looking to maximize space should look into this inventive item.
