Blue Leaf Hospitality announced its continuing operations following the dissolution of BLUECOAST out of its main warehouse and facility in Miami, Fla. Established more than two decades ago, Blue Leaf Hospitality produces casegoods, indoor and outdoor seating, upholstery, tables and banquettes for the hospitality and commercial industries.

The company also welcomed the return of John Taber to its executive team, as the newly appointed hospitality market manager.

Taber, who brings over 20 years of experience in the furniture industry, will oversee market development and client relations, working closely to deliver quality product solutions that are sensitive to budget restraints and meet production schedules. Formerly a regional sales manager for Shelby Williams, and later the founder of Just Hospitality, where he served as an independent representative for various furniture manufacturers, Taber has experience working with designers, architects, hotel and restaurant owners, healthcare managers and timeshare operators.
