December 12, 2017

2017’s Sleep, Hotel Design Event was held at the Business Design Centre. It’s an annual event where designers and architects come together to showcase their work. This year, Treniq had created a special tour for bloggers. They introduced to us a selected few exhibitors to introduce their work.

I was a part of the small group of bloggers invited on the tour. What was great about this tour was that it gave us a great insight into the event and particular designers at the event. Their history, how they started and what exactly they specialised in.

One thing I found overall, which reoccurred with a lot of the exhibitors was their ability to make bespoke for their clients. So you had the option of asking for a particular design made however you wanted. I personally believe having the option of custom-made designs is great because it gives the customers more options to choose from. It also personalises not only the design but your whole experience.

Now, let’s get onto our tour with Treniq. The tour started with the Treniq team and the group of us bloggers at a networking breakfast. The breakfast was hosted in Vivo Italian. It was a great start to the day as we got to know each other, but also got a proper insight into what Treniq do.

So if you’re wondering what Treniq is and what they do, let me explain. Treniq is an interiors network bringing together design professionals. Buyers and suppliers have access to this platform 24/7. So for international brands and manufacturers, it is a place where they can stay connected to people who are interested.

After meeting the Treniq team and networking with the other bloggers, we headed down to the Business Design Centre for The Sleep Event.

I’ll show you a few of the exhibitors we met at the show. They spoke with us about what their brand does. A lot of them also showcased what makes them so unique.

It was wonderful to hear some of the thought processes that went into their designs.

Firstly, we started our tour with meeting Quasar, a Dutch lighting brand. This was a great place to start as we were instantly wowed by the beautiful lighting they had up. Quasar’s designs were available in different finishes such as aluminium, stainless steel and bronze. This made their designs more unique as you could choose the finishing depending on how you want to use it.

We next moved to Dare Studio. They are a family run company who create contemporary furniture and lighting. Their handmade designs were unbelievably sleek and beautifully crafted.

We next headed over to Colunex. I have to say, it was an experience seeing their furniture. They specialise in mattresses and bedroom furniture. We had a demonstration of how sturdy and comfy their mattresses were. By the end of our little tour with Colunex, I was convinced I needed one of their mattresses.

Next up is the bold and beautiful Lelievre. I couldn’t help but notice the striking colours that stood out as we walked over to them. It was interesting to find out about how long it takes them to design textures and prints.

Edmund Bell is a worldwide supplier of fabrics and accessories. It was really interesting to find out that they were first established in 1855. They later became the major suppliers of blackout fabrics throughout World War II. So with their wide range of fabrics, accessories and bespoke solutions, you can pretty much find what you’re looking for.

Next up, we headed over to Contardi. Contardi is a unique brand. It was clear from the minute we stepped into their mini showroom. From their designs to how each product is made, we were all very fascinated by each product we saw.

Mullan lighting was a pleasure to walk into. I remember just thinking I can really imagine myself with their lighting around me in a room. Particularly in a bedroom. The dark walls with their selection of lighting were quite a lovely experience to walk into.

Avivo was just breathtaking! Their lighting was the type you would see when you walk into those huge hotels with the statement light as you walk into the building. So detailed! I would say they had a lot of statement pieces, very sparkly and lovely to look at.

After our tour, we did get a chance to wander around and look at everything else the Sleep had. There were so many exhibitors that I thought were so wonderful. Here are a few others that I liked and found very interesting.

Overall, I really enjoyed the tour. It was lovely to have someone pick a selection of exhibitors to have a closer look at. The whole Hotel Design Event had so much going on, so at the end of it we did go around and explore a little more. The VIP blogger pass also included access to the VIP area and to programmes and talks at the event.

    This tour was absolutely awesome, I too was invited and enjoyed the fun we had that day. It was fascinating speaking to the designers, hearing where they started and what makes their designs so special. And the tour was excellent as they selected different companies for us to really experience a variety.

    I loved these photos! The clean lines and rich colors were very eye pleasing. My favorite picture was the one with your shoes. Love the pointed heels against the swirls!
