Interiors Entirely Furnished by IKEA Furniture
Lausanne (CH), 1st. December 2008 – A new Tulip Inn will be opened on December 1st near Ikea Concept Center in Delft; the interior will be exclusively furnished by Ikea.
Golden Tulip proudly announces the opening of its new Tulip Inn near the IKEA Concept Center in Delft, the Netherlands, on the 1st of December 2008. The design of the hotel’s exterior and interior is the result of a close cooperation between Inter IKEA Systems Holding B.V., which is the property owner, and Golden Tulip Hospitality Group, the hotel operator. Due to this collaboration the hotel will be exclusively equipped with IKEA furniture in different IKEA style expressions.
The Tulip Inn Delft will embody an innovative, three-star hotel concept
called “from staying to living”. The aim of this concept lies in creating
home-like comfort for the guests. It will offer accommodation to the thousands
of IKEA co-workers who are visiting the IKEA Concept Center as well as
to other guests. It will also offer a natural meeting point for both business
and leisure visitors while displaying IKEA know-how in interior design.
