The Business of Hospitality
We're in the business of hospitality, but what does that mean? Hospitality is defined as the friendly and generous reception and entertainment of guests, visitors, or strangers, and so as suppliers to hospitality interiors, it’s our job to make it easy for designers to create spaces that do just that. We must challenge ourselves to leave those we interact with better off through our engagement.
