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.
