There is an ever increasing push for people to “buy local, Made in the U.S.A.” products and adopt “environmentally friendly, green” business practices. That’s not always easy from an FF&E perspective. There are challenges inherent with each, but there are companies within the FF&E industries that are striving to adopt these principles.

Buying local can be easy or difficult, depending on your definition of local. If you’re buying your hotel, motel or resort’s furniture, fixtures, equipment and supplies from local suppliers you are buying local. You’re helping that local business employ members of your community and keeping money in the local economy.

The furniture and fixtures you’re purchasing may or may not have been made in the U.S.A., but you are still patronizing a local business. The idea of “American Made” is further muddied by the materials utilized in fabricating everything, from beds and faucets to automobiles and computers. Many suppliers you’ve likely purchased furniture and fixtures from in the past have assembly facilities in the United States, but they may be purchasing fabrics, lumber and hardware manufactured in other countries using components sourced abroad.

There aren’t that many FF&E suppliers that truly sell “Made in the U.S.A.” products that are entirely sourced in the United States. Many employ American workers in assembly facilities and at showrooms and warehouses, but they’re also likely sending money overseas every time they purchase a bolt of upholstery from one of their suppliers.

We live in a global economy, and that’s very apparent in the FF&E industry where mass manufacturing and wholesale bulk purchases are a requirement for every job. Still, sourcing your FF&E services and materials locally, from American companies, does in fact benefit your community, even if every component wasn’t produced here and every dollar doesn’t stay in your neighborhood.

From a green perspective, the FF&E industry has made leaps and bounds thanks to companies like Cash Liquidations. It wasn’t too long ago when the majority of the industry’s waste ended up in landfills, filling up our precious natural resources with discarded furniture and fixtures from countless hospitality businesses. That no longer has to be the case.

Working with companies like Cash Liquidations offers multifaceted benefits that make a lot of sense for the clients we serve. Updating FF&E is never cheap, but it also doesn’t have to be a total loss anymore. Instead of paying extra to have the moving company haul away and dump all the old furniture and fixtures you’re replacing in your establishment, you can now make your outdated and discarded assets work for you.

Even traditional recycling of plastic bottles and cardboard creates a carbon footprint, but selling off used hospitality-industry table or nightstand to a private individual who will take it home and use it for years doesn’t really add anything to anyone’s carbon footprint that wouldn’t already be there. You’re saving money by selling an asset you would otherwise entirely write off, and you’re saving it from the dump by selling it to someone else who will continue to make use of it. The Cash Liquidations approach is truly a win-win for the industry, defraying your cost of getting rid of old FF&E while ensuring your business is being as green as possible.

The styles and placement of hotel furniture can have a surprisingly significant impact on the assumptions people make about the establishment. Smart design and furniture choices can elevate guest perception without necessarily breaking the bank.

At Cash Liquidations, we know all about the benefits of smart hotel design and furniture, as we’re often on the front lines of implementing modernization and design efforts. As a company that warehouses new and used furniture, moves new furniture into rooms according to designers’ specific instructions and handles the removal and liquidation of old furniture, we have an up-close view of some of the latest trends in the business!

Boldness and Personalization

Today’s trends no longer revolve around one particular design genre. Mixing and matching furniture can present a unique appearance that is both stylish and unusual. Hotels have strayed from the beaten path to combine wood, metal and multiple fabrics that highlight a unique aesthetic. When it comes to color, bold is welcome in hotel lobbies and rooms. Utilizing bright colors can boost the energy of the space and make clients feel more positively about their experience during their stay. Of course, no hotel is complete without a touch of sophistication. Bold colors are often offset with more neutral or subdued hues to maintain an air of intimacy and neatness.

Recycling

It’s more than just a blue bin. Many hotels are taking advantage of the recycled furniture and materials trend sweeping the nation. From mason jars to apple boxes to vintage furniture, hotels have begun seeing the beauty in recycling creatively and moving toward a more sustainable design plan. Today’s furnishings are no longer about opulence. Comfort and environmental awareness are at the forefront of hospitality.

Unique Focal Points

In both lobbies and private rooms, hotels are reinventing the “wow” factor. While hanging decorations or table centerpieces used to be the eye-catching features of the space, today’s focal points are much more adventurous. Entire walls and ceilings can be used as jaw-dropping attention-grabbers, making a room feel luxurious and unique. Some hotels choose to coat an accent wall in metal. Others may build a glass wall to separate the space without sacrificing light. Still others opt for unusual painted patterns or vintage furniture to accentuate the room’s head-turning style.

Dress Up Your Office with Cash Liquidations Inc. 

Hotels are some of the most fashion-forward establishments in the world. Their designers research trends new and old to create an environment dressed head to toe in elegance. Now, hotels aren’t the only ones taking advantage of high-brow design. When the biggest names in hospitality like Ritz Carlton and Westin start to redesign their spaces (which happens frequently), Cash Liquidations Inc. provides a turnkey solution for liquidating that old furniture by selling it to other people who can put it to good use.

As a hotel, that means you don’t have to worry about warehousing old furniture while you figure out a way to dispose of it in an environmentally responsible way. Best of all, you can even recoup some money on a depreciated asset you may have just written off otherwise.
