Tarkett Hospitality: What’s To Come For 2023

When the hospitality industry reopened completely in 2022, Tarkett Hospitality took advantage of a full year brimming with opportunity. Now, it’s time to look ahead to what an exciting 2023 has in store…

From collection launches and program expansions to attending events and sponsoring booths with immersive experiences, 2022 was all about getting back into the full swing of things for Tarkett Hospitality.

After a multi-year pandemic that caused uncertainty for the entire hospitality industry, Tarkett Hospitality was able to grow brand awareness, accomplish numerous objectives, as well as fill key roles within the company amid personnel departures.

One of the significant developments in the latter half of 2022 was the promotion of Amber Osiecki as Tarkett Hospitality’s newest Director of Creative Design. With her impressive design background and successful turn as Tarkett Hospitality Account Executive covering the DC Metro Market, Amber is a perfect fit for the role!

As Director, Osiecki works with the talented Tarkett Hospitality Design Team to forecast trends in the hospitality industry and the evolution of hospitality design, and then find ways to incorporate these eye-catching visuals into the quality and performance of functional products for the spaces they serve.

In this quick sit-down, Amber takes a moment to identify the emerging trends of 2022 that will continue to expand in the coming months, as well as outline some of the important company goals moving forward:

What are trends observed in 2022 that will influence what Tarkett Hospitality does in 2023?

Amber Osiecki: Maximalism is a trend that was exciting to see in 2022. Layering, collections, mixing old and new, bold color, and the concept of ‘more is more’. We will still see some of this in 2023, the layering upon layering of pattern and bold colors.

Curves came back and they are staying. We saw it come into residential design during the pandemic: soft lines and elegant curves created spaces of comfort during hard times. These curves are not going away. They lend a touch of sophistication, movement, and fluidity to spaces.

Brown is making a re-emergence. Grey has dominated the neutral palette for some time now, but the warmth of brown in rich colors plays well with other bold colors. Brown grounds spaces, and like green, brings a touch of biophilia to spaces.

How will Tarkett Hospitality incorporate these trends in 2023?

AO: We will not be afraid of color, even in running-line products. It is so easy to recolor our running line, so color should not be a detractor, but instead be more of an inspiration.

We are rolling out a new running line carpet tile with the curves you see in our Custom Nowhaus Collection. We also just rolled out a new Stacy Garcia running line with bold curves called Bridge (below).

As you saw in our Expression Collection, the neutral tones we used in this collection were dominated by browns and whites, with accents of black. Rich, deep browns that almost read puce or plum will become the new black in many colorways.

What are the key goals for Tarkett Hospitality in 2023? Are there any exciting Tarkett Hospitality product launches or expansions coming in 2023?

AO: You will see a focus on casinos with our new Axminster Carpet Tile Collections in multiple colorways as well as running line Hospitality Carpet Tile with a very luxurious look and feel. We are working with more and more design firms on custom carpet tile as an option, which gives designers many more options in construction type, budget, and style from Tarkett Hospitality.

Throughout 2023, also look for Tarkett Hospitality to network and have a major presence within industry-leading events and conferences including Boutique Design New York (BDNY), Hospitality Design Forum Series including Winter, Summer, and Fall Forums, Hospitality Design CitySCENE in key markets, and NEWH, The Hospitality Industry Network.

Tarkett Hospitality at BDNY + 2022 Year-In-Review!

Tarkett Hospitality launched the Expression Collection in November at the 2022 Boutique Design New York event. This exciting event capped a full year of growing brand awareness and innovative custom flooring. 

When the widely attended 2022 Boutique Design New York event drew to a close on November 14th, 2022, Tarkett Hospitality officially and successfully launched the Expression Collection at booth #1637. 

In addition to being one of the five participating booths for the BDNY Tour2Win raffle, Tarkett Hospitality had the chance to debut the Expression Collection and showcase how color customization can transform designs to better tell a captivating story. 

“What we really wanted to do was make a statement. We wanted to be bold. We wanted to bring up topics that matter to the designers, to our community, and to the guests that use and stay in our spaces,” explains Amber Osiecki, director of creative design. 

“We premiered a brand-new booth design and wanted to show as much product as we could to tell our custom collection story, as well as our Tarkett Hospitality Tailored Solutions story.”

The Expression Collection presents an inclusive, multi-layered design evolution that emphasizes self-expression, and pulls from an earthy color palette of creams, browns, and charcoal, with dashes of sage and fuchsia. 

The eye-catching blends of abstract, artistic creativity can be customized with Axminster woven, Digital Dye Injection (DDI), or tufted constructions, along with a variety of fiber types, texture, color, and pile weight options. According to Osiecki, the desired statement was certainly made and warmly received: 

“The collection seemed to resonate with so many people. We wanted to help designers create spaces that represent the people using them. Finally, as a community, we are recognizing that people don’t fit into predetermined molds, especially as it relates to gender. We love seeing how this has played out in fashion, but you have to remember that people express themselves through more than attire- they use art, personal spaces, writing, music, and beyond.

We want to help drive the concept of self-expression, the fluidity of our gender expression, and how ‘who we are’ is multi-faceted by touching on this topic in interiors, especially in hospitality, where we want people to feel welcomed.”

Tarkett Hospitality 2022: A Quick Year-In-Review

Throughout all the exciting events, developments, and product launches in 2022, the goal for Tarkett Hospitality is always to create brand awareness and tell the most important story: Tarkett Hospitality can create Tailored Solutions that work for all projects within different budget parameters: 

“We have such a wide array of products and construction types, that we can really work with any project at any level,” Osiecki explains. “I think the hospitality design community hears us and sees us. They know who we are and what we can do.”

“We have partnered with some of the greatest brands and rolled out some beautiful product in great room designs. We are honored to not only be included as a preferred vendor on so many brands but also as a partner with the brands to help them create their ultimate vision and find their voice.” 

In addition to impressive brand partnerships and the launch of Expression Collection, custom capabilities with Axminster were a focal point of 2022, as well as the soft launch of the versatile carpet tile program. 

With many new, emerging trends identified for 2023, the future of Tarkett Hospitality will offer no shortage of striking, innovative design solutions that tell unique stories and create more unforgettable experiences!
