The Designer Walls team spent the fall of 2016 helping the new Hampton Inn & Suites in North Olmsted get all the furniture installed and assembled. We love working on Hampton Hotels and we’ve been doing it just about as long as our company has been around, so we’ve seen first hand all the changes. The brand’s new furniture is modern and functional, but it’s certainly a little more complicated than it used to be, which is why every hotel should have a competent and experienced installer on their team! We were happy to be able to help make this project a success.

We’re proud to be among the first companies in Ohio to install FF&E (furniture, fixtures, and equipment) at Home2 Suites – the new extended stay brand by Hilton. Home2’s signature furniture design includes the “Working Wall:” a full wall of built in furniture designed to provide everything you need to feel like you’re in your second home. The installation required our top team members to install as many as 20 separate pieces of furniture in each room, attaching each piece together and to the wall to create the continuous “Working Wall.”

We’ve worked our process to perfection and we’re able to change out an entire occupied hotel’s TVs in just a few days. This property threw some added challenges our way with three separate buildings and no elevators, but we were still able to replace 144 TVs in two days–just in time for the crowds to arrive for orientation at Ohio University.
