Biophilic design, the study of human connection between the built environment and nature, is widely accepted to promote positive wellbeing in spaces.
How exactly do you incorporate nature with furniture? In this blog ‘Holistic Hospitality: FurNATURE Inspiration’, we have chosen three case studies which demonstrate how to incorporate nature and furniture.
- Project Sphinx
Nova worked with Office Principles design team to deliver a range of social and wellbeing environments. This including quiet libraries, coffee lounges, a winter garden and wellness rooms. Nova manufactured all the slatted wall panels, bespoke coffee bars and fixed seating. The fixed seating are booths, which double up as planters to incorporate nature into the built environment.
Indoor plants are an essential for connecting interiors with nature. These living furniture pieces build upon the living wall trend, where guests can quite literally sit amongst nature.

2. Hampton by Hilton (Canterbury)
Our client CMC Limited, engaged Nova to manufacture a full suite of loose furniture and joinery for the development of the new Hampton by Hilton in Canterbury. Nova manufactured the bespoke joinery, including oak and glass screens, fixed seating, and a metal and oak media unit.
Working with the design team, Nova also took an active role in selecting the fabrics for the loose furniture. This included a selection of standard models and items designed and manufactured specifically for the project. The desk chairs, lounge chairs and sofa beds were also manufactured in accordance with the designers brief and Hilton brand standards.
The vast use of wood and natural materials created an atmospheric space in which nature has been considered. Consider using oak furniture and fixings to create a dreamy forest vibe in your next project connecting your guests to nature.
Nova Interiors were briefed by Project Orange to create the feature headboards for all 70 rooms, each comprising of an upper plywood section with dual tone finish, a clear lacquer, and a whitewash paint finish.
The lower section of the headboard shows Nova’s attention to finer detail. The detail seamlessly continues the circular line through the upholstery. We particularly enjoy the contrast between the oranges/blues in this hometel, representing two subtle elements of nature – sunset and water.
