Experience Bryan Ashley at BDNY 2023

by Brooke Lueken

Bryan Ashley, an OFS company, attended BDNY 2023 from November 12 to 13th at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York. The hospitality spaces throughout the booth featured a tasteful, refined design, and tailored furniture pieces that created a grand experience to inspire hotel design. From guestrooms to public spaces, we curated a lavish design experience to epitomize the glamour, charisma, and luxury of a refined hospitality destination. With an overall sense of calmness and serenity, step into our booth and find a color tone and palette inspired by mid-late 20th-century photography of lavish and elegant lifestyles.

We strive to help create hospitality spaces that cause people to feel surprise, delight, and comfort all at the same time. When designing for hospitality, it is important to create a sense of place that not only looks welcoming but makes guests feel inspired. Our booth was designed by our talented in-house interior designer, Chelsie Fritz, showcasing Bryan Ashley’s custom furniture capabilities. We caught up with Chelsie where she shared her inspiration, process, and vision for this year’s booth.

Inspired by Slim Aarons' imagery, I wanted to recreate the essence of his famous photography within our booth space at BDNY. I imagined stepping into one of his photographs, grabbing a cocktail, and sitting by the pool. From the custom-designed furniture to the final styling details, every element captures the allure and unparalleled indulgence of Aarons' timeless compositions creating a sense of effortlessly chic luxury and sophistication.
