Our favourite pieces

Selected design highlights from our Motel One hotels that you can enjoy at home

At Motel One, we try our hardest to integrate the most beautiful pieces from international designers and artists into our interiors to create that wow effect. Maybe you’ve already fallen in love with a piece you discovered at one of our hotels? We’ve handpicked some of our favourites, which you can use to give your own home that je ne sais quoi.

Highland Highlights

Leaning back on the Messina sofa by Style Matters is as peaceful as stepping across the moss-covered stones that line the Scottish Highlands. The Rothschild & Bickers Standing Pendant and Spindle Pendant lamps are inspired by whisky decanters and grey storm clouds. A Net side table by Moroso, which is reminiscent of the tracks of the West Highland Railway Line, and custom Motel One tartan fabric round off the look. There’s no more scenic way to enjoy an afternoon tea or whisky. Cheers!

Sleek but reserved

Sometimes less is simply more. Take Moroso’s Redondo velvet armchair for example, which holds its own as a design highlight. The Aérostat F27 desk lamp by Fabbian and Grand Cru hanging lamps by Massifcentral are sure to put you in a good light.

SHOW YOUR COLOURS

Colour is all the rage when it comes to interior design – and nowhere is this more clear than at our Motel One Cologne-Neumarkt.
From all-natural hanging flower baskets by Atelier Haussmann to the delicately shaped Strike XL armchair by arrmet, subtle and transparent Pick-n-Mix glass lamps by Rothschild & Bickers, or an ornate carpet with vintage flair, such as the Serapi Queensbury by Jan Kath.

A BOOK-INSPIRED LOOK

Once upon a time, there was a hotel at Frankfurt-Römer ... featuring a midnight blue Vuelta 72 velvet armchair by Wittmann, the Ingo Maurer 24 Karat Blau lamp and the small, refined Clip Hexagonal end table by Marelli – standing on the exuberant blossoms of the Fool’s Paradise carpet by Moooi. Then you came along and felt right at home. What a happy ending!

EXPRESS YOURSELF

The Spanish family business Nanimarquina is famous for its extraordinary creations, which have revolutionised the world of carpets. Their Hayon x Nani carpet resembles an abstract painting – one that you walk on – and decorates our Motel One Barcelona-Ciutadella.

A SECOND CHANCE

Designer Alvaro Catalán de Ocón was inspired by traditional basket-weaving techniques on his mission to find a sustainable solution to the accumulation of plastic waste. He launched his PET Lamp initiative in 2011, which transforms plastic bottles into stunning hanging lamps, such as the Eperara Siapidara – which can be seen at our Motel One Barcelona-Ciutadella.

CHILL, LAID-BACK BERLIN

We’ve created a dolce vita atmosphere in our Motel One-Alexanderplatz with the uniquely shaped Bohemian lounge chair by the Italian label Moroso – experts in upholstered furnishings since the 50s – where you can relax in style and take it easy.

BLUE HOUR

The Lake Floral Blue carpet that graces our Motel One-Alexanderplatz makes guests feel as if they were floating over a pond of water lilies. Manufactured by the family business Golran, the carpet is hand-knotted from a blend of wool and silk. Today, the tradition-steeped brand is based in Milan, but they were originally founded by a Persian great-grandfather, who brought his knowledge of craftsmanship and trade to Europe.
