What We Did

With the opening of the Hotel, Nextrend was engaged to supply a range of furniture.  Going for the “wicker” or “tropical” look for the outdoor and pool area, our resin rattan range of furniture was selected.  The Tequila Range and Jamaica Barstools were used throughout this zone to provide the look the Hotel desired, while providing a product that will be long lasting while withstanding the elements.  It should be noted that in these pictures, the majority of furniture is approximately 5 years old.  Moving to the restaurant, conference and functions areas, a combination of of zeb chairs and tiffany chairs were used.  The Zeb chairs provide a luxurious look and comfort for the indoor areas, whereas the tiffany chairs provide style and durability to the function zones and outdoors where the equipment is expected to take more of a beating.  Some table bases and tops were also used through these zones.  Finally on most balconies in the accomodation you will find a combination of Tiffany Chairs and Tequila Side Tables.
