An article about pure hotel luxury at home! Every now and then you come across something in hotel rooms that you actually want at home. For example, a few years ago we slept at Brown’s in London, a lovely hotel with excellent bedding. In the morning my husband was already googling where he could buy Egyptian linen of 600 grams in the Netherlands. It would have been a lot easier if there had been a Brown’s Home collection, such as the Pulitzer hotel in Amsterdam just started. The complete Pulitzer Bed and Design items are now available in their online shop, the Pulitzer Home Collection. The Pulitzer experience but then at home, it’s now possible with the launch of the new Pulitzer Home collection from Pulitzer Amsterdam.

Trends we spotted | Week 29

19-7-2019

At hospitalitytrends.eu we spot many national and international trends on a daily basis. We pick the most interesting ones to write about, the smaller trends we use in our weekly column ‘Trends we spotted this week’.

This week, among other links to articles about a new site where DSM and Evonik started the commercial production of omega-3 fatty acids rich in EPA and DHA from natural marine algae for sustainable salmon farming. And JuiceBrothers opened their 9th store in Downtown Memphis, to celebrate this they serve a special Memphis Smoothie!

We spotted a hotel room with a very cool amenity, a full-sized flight simulator! If you want to book the room at the Haneda Excel Hotel Tokyu you need to travel to Japan.

And another step in emancipation: Pampers announced that they will provide 5,000 baby changing tables for installation in public restrooms. This in response to the movement #SquatforChange! And Solar foods invented the Solein, a revolutionary natural protein source! And have you ever heard of Hala fruit?
