5 Unique Hotel Designs

Posted by adam

Here at iola, many of our rattan furniture designs are inspired by nature or even beautiful buildings (note, our Rattan Sail Bed Lounger was inspired by the beautiful Sydney Opera House!). The most unusual of all our designs, however, is the stunning Hanging Egg Chair. This hanging dome chair is without a doubt an extremely unique design which stands out from the crowd, and has been the frequent recipient of interest in the design world. The gorgeous hanging dome design is truly unique and modern and can actually be found in some extremely executive hotels around the world.

We at iola are clearly fans of the unique and innovative when it comes to interior design, so we decided to bring you 5 of the most unique hotel designs from around the world, inspired by our innovative hanging egg chair! 

 

1. Free Spirit Spheres, Vancouver Island, Canada 

These suspended tree houses are a truly magical design based in the rainforest of Vancouver Island, Canada. 

 

2. The Ice Hotel, Jukkasjärvi, Sweden 

Incredible hotel constructed entirely from ice. Every year 500 artists flock to Sweden to rebuild this phenomenal hotel, thus every year it is slightly different!

 

3. Kakslauttannen Glass Igloo Village Resort, Finland 

A stunning collection of glass igloos in Finland, perfect for viewing the Aurora Borealis Northern Lights in peak season. 

 

4. Giraffe Manor, Nairobi, Africa 

A luxury hotel in Nairobi where giraffes roam freely, encouraged to pop their heads through the window for a head rub or some delicious treats! 

 

5. Poseidon Underwater Resort, Fiji

A luxury resort built entirely underwater with the most astonishing views of the depths of the ocean.

Our Top 5 Hotel Views

Posted by adam

iola supply our luxury rattan furniture to 5* hotel establishments all over the world, which means we are naturally appreciative of an exquisite hotel design. However, we also understand that sometimes even the most beautiful of hotel architecture and design can be compromised by a less than desirable location or view, and similarly a fairly average hotel design can be accentuated by a wonderful location. One of the best parts of any holiday is taking a moment to relax and reflect whilst admiring a breathtaking view - no matter where in the world you are. 

Curling up on some beautiful furniture in front of an outstanding view is a real privilege, and we've scoured the net for some of our favourite hotel views out there. Here are 5 of the most gorgeous hotel views where we would love to see some of our beautiful rattan loungers for the ultimate relaxation out there. 

1. Mandarin Oriental Hotel, San Francisco 

2. St Regis Hotel, Bora Bora 

3. InterContinental Hotel, Hong Kong 

4. Hotel Tremezzo, Lake Como, Italy 

5. St Regis Deer Valley Park, Utah 

We'd love to see our gorgeous Sail Bed Lounger in any of these stunning locations - we could sit for hours and take it all in. What do you think? Tweet us and let us know.
