The HD Boutique hospitality design conference & expo in Miami Beach this year was fantastic! It was a great opportunity to share the latest interior design trends and innovations, view all the latest product lines, connect with new contacts and resources, and reunite with designer colleagues.
I enjoyed some great conference sessions hosted by designers, owners, and restauranteurs from around the world to stay up on the hottest design trends and strategies, including “Revolutionizing Hotel F&B,” “What Owners Want in Design Presentations,” “Hot Ideas for Profitability and Flexibility in Restaurants and Bars,” and a keynote address by design icon Glenn Pushelberg.
After soaking in everything the conference had to offer, I had a great time visiting the hundreds of booths and displays on the show floor, checking out all the trends in furniture, lines of fabrics, spectacular lighting, and innovative new finishes and materials… even before making the surprise discovery of the mini wine tasting bars scattered strategically throughout the displays, complements of the fabulous Stacy Garcia.
Some of my favorite products from the show floor: hot outdoor lounge furniture in striking modern shapes, increased flexibility in LED display lighting, incredible system for high-def artwork on stretched & backlit fabric, and acoustic panels that can look like anything but!
Adios, Miami! See you next year!
