B Seated is proud to announce our debut exhibit in the United States of America! We are so excited about this opportunity and we’re going all out. On May 2nd- 4th we’ll be attending the HD Expo, presented by ‘Hospitality Design’ magazine. Hosted in Las Vegas, the entertainment capital of the world will become a mecca for commercial interior design. So, here’s the run down of the event that design dreams are made of.
About the HD Expo:The HD Expo has been running since 1992 and has become a leader for design inspiration. Over 800 innovative vendors are setting up booths alongside ours to exhibit to an audience of nearly 12,000 hospitality leaders. The event focuses on networking and at the heart of the show will be a ‘Social Hub’ to transform presentations into conversation. The expo goes well beyond just networking however. The organisers’ have brought in some of the world’s leading commercial design experts to conduct a series of conference sessions, sharing their knowledge and key experience.

By making it the mother of all parties! On the first night will be a giant ice-breaker event dubbed the ‘Opening Drive Party’. It’s hosted at the Topgolf in MGM Grand with a DJ, cocktails, interactive games, and views of the city. Then if one party wasn’t enough, the following night will have a ‘Party by the Pool’ at Drai’s complete with a dance floor. If you’re not ready to book your HD Expo tickets for next year you’re crazy. [caption id="attachment_1849" align="aligncenter" width="960"](image) Topgolf at MGM Grand[/caption]

Velvet is coming back in style full force and we’re jumping on board. The lush fabric has transformed beyond vintage floral patterns to become sleek and versatile. Its subtle texture can add depth to any space whether on custom banquettes or barstools. Below are some of our favourite inspirational projects using velvet.
№2 BehanceRestaurant No2 in Belarus is essentially a how-to guide on the use of velvet. The pastel colour palette of the fabric against the concrete floor and textured wall give a tough edge to the feminine aura. The Quadro Chairs and Brass Edge Table tops are the perfect match to the U shape banquettes. [caption id="attachment_1839" align="aligncenter" width="900"](image) Design by Maxim Tsiabus[/caption]
Cod’s GiftCod’s Gift gets a lot of mentions in our blogs and we’re certainly not stopping anytime soon. The rich sapphire tones of the venue are nothing short of dreamy. Though the whole wall is painted in a similar shade to the furniture, the velvet of the banquette stands out. Coupled with the Tess Upholstered Chair with a gold frame it adds a punch of modern luxury. [caption id="attachment_1838" align="aligncenter" width="919"](image) Design In-house[/caption]
SketchThe Gallery at Sketch in London is sea of bubblegum pink that appears straight out of a 1960’s interior magazine. The pink velvet in the scalloped chairs and banquettes against the gold accents add a luxe vintage vibe. Finishing off the look with a multicolour chevron floor and wall of illustrations provides contrast and dimension to the space.

The StarWe recently worked alongside The Star to update their lounge area in a major way. Their use of abstract carpet is like walking on artwork. Our Cher Tub Chairs in fuchsia velvet and matching cushions gives the room a vibrant kick. Jackson Teece then finalised the look with custom coffee tables, tying everything together flawlessly.
