Breathtaking Hotel Designs

Posted by adam

Our exquisite range of luxury hand-crafted rattan furniture is featured in some of the best hotels, resorts and corporate business establishments all around the world. As such, we like to keep on top of interior design trends within the hotel sector. We are always looking for inspiration for our unique designs - many of you will know that our stunning Sail Bed Lounger is even modelled on the Sydney Opera House, and thus it is important to stay in the loop with hotel design to ensure our rattan furniture remains current, stylish and able to fit in to any high-class hotel establishment. 

For this week's blog post we thought we'd show you some of our favourite hotel designs. Hotels which are truly breathtaking not only for location, but for the attention to detail and design of their fabulous outdoor spaces. The hotels we've chosen has truly incredible outdoor spaces, and we believe some of our pieces would be right at home in these joints! We've paired some of our furniture to these gorgeous hotels, let us know if you agree with our choices or if you think another one of our range would perhaps be better suited. 

1. Club Med Kani - Maldives 

This stunning paradise location is breathtaking in itself, but the hotel being physically located in the crystal clear waters of the Maldives is really something special. Each room is on 'stilts' and you wake up to the ocean every morning - which is pretty spectacular, we think you'll agree. We love the lounging and relaxation areas pictured above, but can't help but think our beautiful Ambrato Sun Loungers (in white, to match the decor of course) would be perfect for reclining in the sun and soaking up that gorgeous view. Don't you?

2. Grace Santorini Hotel - Greece 

This beautiful Greek hotel utilises a beautiful minimalistic design and really lets that incredible view do the talking, doesn't it? We love the minimal use of furniture to just maximise on the incredible landscape presented there for us, but we think that a glass of wine from our gorgeous Azzuro Dining Set would heighten the experience of true paradise.

3. Viceroy Hotel - Bali 

This beautiful hotel is truly exquisite in location high up in the trees boasting the most incredible exotic location. The impressive luxury design of this hotel is the best way to accentuate this incredible location - and we'd love to add to it! How perfect would it be to curl up in our Sail Bed Rattan Lounger and take in nature at its very finest?

Iola Furniture for Hotels, Restaurants and Bars

Posted by adam

We at iola have a fantastic track record with the hospitality industry. Of course, our rattan furniture looks amazing no matter where it’s placed, but we’re particularly proud of the work we’ve done for hotels and restaurants – our products have been used in some of the world’s most luxurious resorts, and the feedback we’ve received has never been anything short of stellar!

As you’d probably guess, our sun loungers are extremely popular where hotels and holiday resorts are concerned. No swimming pool should be without a row of sun beds along the side, and iola’s luxury loungers are the perfect choice for hotel pools of all sizes. Our dining sets have also been used in dozens of hotel restaurants.


And that brings us rather neatly to our other speciality: outdoor furniture for bars, restaurants, and other such establishments. Every restaurant ought to have an outdoor section (for those glorious summer evenings on which it would be a crime to stay inside), and as you’re already aware, nobody can beat iola when it comes to outdoor seating. Imagine watching the sun go down from your comfortable Cerino dining chair, or enjoying a summer cocktail while seating at the Azzuro bar set – paradise!

Luxury Bespoke Furniture for Your Needs

Posted by adam

We have supplied our luxury bespoke furniture to a number of high-end clients including Melia, Sofitel, Four Seasons and the Hilton. We won such clients over with our relentless pursuit for absolute quality and absolute craftsmanship.

If you take a look through our range of loungers, dining sets, and rattan sofas you will soon see the kind of beautiful bespoke luxury furniture we do as standard. All of the said furniture benefits from our superior alloy frame, marine grade stainless steel fixtures and fittings, and our quality German rattan which is all brought together by our master weavers. 

What you may not know is that we also do entirely bespoke pieces of our famous furniture too. If you have specific requirements that you want your rattan furniture needs to meet, we are more than happy to cater to those. We have crafted a multitude of completely unique pieces of furniture for our clients, and here are a few examples to give you a little taster.


This stunning outdoor rattan bed is the very epitome of luxurious lounging! Not only can this be used as a spacious outdoor bed, but each of the loungers is reclinable meaning you can relax in your desired seating position. 

This fetching egg chair makes for a beautiful place to sit, and comes with a handy chain should you want to gently lull yourself. Our clients took full advantage of our bespoke option and kitted out their premises with these luxurious chairs.

Another piece of bespoke commercial furniture we created was this sail bed lounger! Taking 27 days to construct these beds are true gems of craftsmanship, and this client enjoyed their bespoke weaving and sail colour options.

We go to extraordinary lengths to please our customers, and so when this client wanted a stackable chair in a slightly different design, we were more than happy to oblige! And doesn't it look great in this bold bronze colour?
