All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. Well, this rule doesn’t just apply to one’s actions – it’s as much about interior designing in commercial spaces as well! We’ve all been there before.

It might be surprising to hear this, but the trends in the hotel industry are usually reflections of the trends in our lives. In part, mostly because it is a hospitality service that is closely related to the most important aspect of our lives – how we live. Even without the onset of COVID-19, the hotel industry was already on the cusp of emerging trends that promise to change the scene. Now, they must evolve even faster. The core values of hospitality (e.g. service, trust, care, commitment) are not expected to change, but rather, become even more important and apparent in the world of social media. And the changes in consumer behaviour in this modern world is taking the lead to bring new technology, philosophies and operational ethics onto the grounds.

Design is an ever-evolving art form. Whether you fall prey to the whimsies of the latest fashion fads or fawn over the most buzzworthy artworks, there’s no denying that there’s always a new trend coming up. And much like the most meticulously planned outfits on the runway, restaurant design, too, follows its own path of intricate trends that develop throughout the year.
Great food. Excellent conversations. Treasured memories. These aspects of a great dining experience are brought together by one silent factor—an amazing ambience.
