When a guest walks into your hotel, the first room they see is the lobby. This is your chance to make the best first impression possible by extenuating the uniqueness of your hotel through creating the right atmosphere. Your goal when designing a hotel lobby should be to find the most effective ways to make your guests feel welcomed.

Personally greeting each guest entering your hotel is unrealistic, but you can still show your guests that you appreciate them through designing and accessorizing the lobby with the right furniture pieces! Little details in the lobby will set the tone for the rest of your hotel.

It’s likely that guests entering your hotel have travelled from long distances, may have had a hard week, are stressed for a conference or are simply experiencing exhaustion and really needed a vacation. Make visitors feel welcomed by providing big, comfortable armchairs or a cozy loveseat and sofa. This way, right when they walk into your hotel they can feel a sense of relaxation.

A few examples of modern chairs or sofas that will complete the look of your lobby include the Simon Lounge Chair pictured above, and the Betty Sofa. These items offer a contemporary, sleek look while still boasting a warm feeling that will entice your guests to sit down and comfortably sink into the chair.

Other chairs that are convenient for your guests include different styles of bar stools, paired with a high table top. Bar stool chairs engage guests to pause for a drink or take some time to open their laptop, tablet or phone and answer a few emails. This seating is ideal for areas that you want to become flexible and where the traffic is fluid so that seats can be moved around, if need be. These chairs take up less floor space and are practical and essential to have in your lobby.

When choosing the right chairs for your lobby, it’s crucial to select ones that are proportionate to the size of your space. You don’t want your space to be too crowded or too empty.
