Innovation Lounges provides destinations for business-to-business luxury interior and exterior design solutions, with a strong commitment to environmental responsibility. This platform facilitates connections between developers, designers, and purchasing decision-makers, showcasing the craftsmanship of luxury brands that prioritise sustainable practices.  

With year-round showrooms in Miami and Hamburg, Innovation Lounges offers an environment for the discovery of new markets and direct engagement with industry peers to discuss future trends and innovations. 

Innovation Lounges has reported a notable recent upswing in activity, which it seeks to further propel with a presence at leading industry trade shows such as Cruise Ship Interiors (CSI) Miami 2024, SMM Hamburg 2024, Boutique Design New York 2024, and CSI London 2024. 

In January, the team spent two weeks in the Hawaiian Islands, engaging with over 25 properties. As a result, it secured initial orders that quickly morphed into larger projects, including an official partnership with architect and design firm Make Make NYC. 

Innovation Lounges has now established a presence in Canada too, and continues to conduct industry events, such as invite-only parties within the showrooms in Miami and Hamburg, Germany. 

Innovation Lounges says its success and expansion are indicators of the impact and necessity of more conscious practices in the hospitality industry, and highlights that it remains committed to not only meeting the current demands of the market but setting new standards in the process. 

“Susan Sadolin [founder of Innovation Lounges] has been instrumental in introducing us to key players within the cruise industry,” said Steven Davies, head of sales at Waterbury Bathroom Accessories. “Thanks to her, we’ve forged strategic relationships that have been invaluable for our expansion.”
