Elements to consider in the design of custom-made hotel furniture

The manufacture and design of custom hotel furniture can be due to two factors: necessity or exclusivity. Sometimes, due to space constraints, it is necessary to have solutions that best fit the available space. In others, the design of custom-made furniture will have the function of bringing exclusivity and unique pieces to the hotel that have never been seen before.

During the product design and manufacturing process there are a number of elements to be considered. Do you want to know what they are? We invite you to read our article.

Features in custom hotel furniture design



Hotels are no longer just a place to sleep, but have become areas for sharing experiences. The main idea is to get guests out of the room and have them enjoy other spaces. Areas that allow guests to socialize or areas where they can enjoy activities such as exhibitions, concerts or workshops. In short, to make hotels a more human space.

To have at your disposal custom-made hotel furniture results in a unique interior that will be unlike any place they have ever been. The choice of elements such as dimensions, shape or fabric selection will make these pieces unique in their genre.

There is a subtle difference between custom furniture and
custom-made furniture
. Custom furniture is defined as an existing design modified or altered in a certain way. This usually involves keeping the frame or structure of the same, but with some modifications. Furniture customization can also include additional embellishments such as piping, bolts, buttoning, as well as brand logo engraving.

In contrast, custom-made furniture consists of unique pieces created from the customer’s idea to completion by the manufacturer. The concept may be based on an existing design, but will be manufactured completely from scratch. This requires us to compile detailed construction drawings of each component for our production team to produce. Fundamental components such as dimensions, stability and mechanics are of paramount importance when it comes to making furniture perform as intended.

Bespoke pieces are ideal for many hotel rooms as they create a sense of exclusivity for guests and a feeling that they are looking at something unique.



When it comes to custom hotel furniture design, it is important to remember that furniture should not only be beautiful to look at, but also sturdy, functional and, in many cases, tailored to fit a particular space. We must take into account the number of guests and the traffic that will come into contact with them. It is therefore essential to find a balance between function and form.

For the design of exclusive seating for weddings or events, it is important to take into account that these can be easily stored when not in use and that they are easily accessible. Designing a chair with armrests or that has a lot of detailing may not be the best option if you need to stack them for storage, as they can be easily damaged and may not stack at all

If you are looking for custom furniture it is important to talk and convey your ideas to the furniture designers so they can recommend and advise you with the best solutions to meet your needs.



Custom-made hotel furniture, even if designed from scratch, has to meet all strict quality standards. The joints must be glued, screwed and nailed to provide greater strength. The upholstery and fabrics chosen must comply with fire regulations. It is advisable to treat fabrics to make them flame retardant so that they do not burn easily.

The fabric chosen for furniture upholstery must be able to withstand continuous use by guests. Contract fabric has a minimum requirement of 40,000 frictions when tested with the Martindale abrasion test.

. This means that the fabric can withstand being in contact with something 40,000 times before it starts to show signs of wear. Ideal for high traffic environment such as hotels, bars or restaurants.
