November 2012 - Blue Leaf Hospitality and Coast to Coast Designs Launch BLUECOAST
Leading hospitality furniture suppliers Blue Leaf Hospitality and Coast to Coast Designs are officially partnering to form BLUECOAST Hospitality. This merger unites two of the industry’s biggest players, resulting in a single entity with an even stronger global platform to serve the hospitality market.
Blue Leaf Hospitality president Stan Shockley and Coast to Coast Designs founder Doug Olson, industry friends and Miami neighbors, had two complementary business models that focused on delivering excellence in service, design quality and craftsmanship to four and five star hotels worldwide. With 75 percent of Blue Leaf’s sales concentrated in seating and upholstery and 75 percent of Coast to Coast Designs’ in casegoods production, the combination creates a unified
powerhouse, doubling their global network of vendors and dedicated sales force. “This merger positions us as an even stronger industry supplier than ever before” added Shockley, “with the ability to fulfill all of our clients FF&E needs at the highest quality standard.”
Headquartered in Miami, Florida with offices in Indonesia and Vietnam, BLUECOAST manufactures high quality furnishings for clients, offering both standard and fully customizable product solutions that range from traditional carved seating and custom casegoods to contemporary outdoor collections. As industry veterans, Shockley and Olson have serviced an impressive client list that includes Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Wyndham, Marriott International, Hilton Hotels & Resorts, Ritz Carlton and Mandarin Oriental.
Future growth plans will include new product lines to be unveiled to the marketplace in 2013, an expanding sales force in South America and Asia, increased domestic production, as well as newly renovated corporate headquarters.
