projects like Amora

Hotel Mayfair in Adelaide,
One and Only Hayman
Island, Beach Club at
Hamilton Island Avenue
and Hotel Hotel and
The Avenue in Canberra
have all specified state of
the art technology and
design in their beds and
have all chosen to partner
with King Koil to develop
products that meet their
specific product brief.
“ These have all
included the latest
developments in both primary support systems, like King Koil
Commercial’s patented Reflex Pocket Coil, which provides unprecedented
comfort and support, along with the latest technology in comfort fills
which include Gel Infused Visco and Latex foams for the most luxurious
comfort and feel, Low Profile Pocket springs for an almost indestructible
comfort layer that will perform for many hundreds of guest nights.
“ These are partnered with plush, stretch knit fabrics to deliver that
not only feels incredible but also one that wows the guests when they pull
back the covers to see what has given them such a great night ’s rest.
“ The prevalence of review sites such as Trip Advisor mean that the
biggest item in the room is increasingly becoming the most important
and most commented on, for better or for worse.
“ The increase in the height of mattresses, as comfort and support
become paramount to guests, has led to the use of low profile bases as
design trends head towards lower overall height and a more streamlined
look in the room. Feature fabric upholstery on bases is also now the norm,
rather than the exception, with a range of linen and other look fabrics
being offered to suit the colour palette of the room.
“ There is now no excuse to not offer a luxurious, supportive sleep
system that will not only see guests leave your property talking about
the experience they have
had, but also one that will
deliver a cost effective and
durable investment for
operators,” Deveny said.
It’s not just about the
mattress when it comes to
a good night’s sleep, but
also linen, mattress toppers
and that ’s where leading
Australia comes in.
The company is most
famous for The Cloud bed
topper, but HotelHome
Australia CEO, Gary
Coman, says that ’s just a
small part of the business.
“Over 90% of
HotelHome’s business is
designing and producing
exclusive world class
commercial fabrics and
finished bed covering products for the higher end of the accommodation
industry throughout Australasia,” he said.
“Our philosophy is to continue offering and producing the best
quality fabrics for upholstery, bed covering and accessories, whilst
raising the bar with styling in every facet of interior textiles for
“In the past, the highest performing fabrics and modern styling
qualities were only available from leading fabric houses in Europe and
USA at exorbitant prices.
“HotelHome is taking on the best, with the use of premium Italian
FR yarns and chenilles and by designing and developing fabrics here
in Australia, specifically for luxurious Hotel bedding, foyer cushions,
upholstery and every other interior application,” he said.
Coman said HotelHome was a “unique supplier to this industry”.
“Not only do we produce exclusive fabric designs and bed-covering
styles, HotelHome is proud to incorporate the correct commercial
specifications including laundering, colourfastness, seam slippage, FR
when required, longevity and International accreditations OEKO-TEX
and Australian Standards,” he said. “All of the above can be achieved
with small minimums and quick turnaround prototypes.” n
CUSHIONS OF DISTINCTION
The trend is moving to hotel cushions with a
presence and they must be produced using
vibrant fabrics with durable and interesting surface
textures. While these new style fabrics, many with
a retro look, are eye catching, they must still retain
all of the commercial specifications required for
maintenance and longevity.
THE ‘CLOUD’ FEATHER
DOWN MATTRESS TOPPER
While many properties are jumping on the
band wagon with the installation of mattress
toppers, many are just installing these on price
and using synthetic products, just to say they
have one. Sure, these synthetics do add some
degree of softness to a hard bed, but there is
still no substitute to the real thing. Consider The
Cloud, a feather down bed topper that’s a leader
in the market.
Designs using the highest quality Italian Chenille
yarns with a velvet look and also the latest in
weaving technology where fabrics have a natural
cotton look and feel, while still retaining the
benefits of a true fire resistant, colourfast and
washable commercial bed covering fabric, are
just some of the exciting textile innovations the
industry has to look forward to.
GOODBYE WHITE NIGHTS
Too many properties still think that by dressing a
bed using the white third sheet presentation, that
this highlights a high standard as seen in some
of the world’s best hotels. If properties want to
use this full white presentation, it must be done
perfectly and the bed needs to look 110%. Most
properties struggle to achieve this and are left
with a dull white bed stuck. The answer to this
conundrum is a splash of colour in the form of an
upmarket cushion or bed scarf.
