Matchline designs Embassy Suites in Jonesboro, Ark.

MatchLine Design Group’s most recent project, the Embassy Suites by Hilton Jonesboro Red Wolf Convention Center in Jonesboro, Ark., has officially opened. MatchLine teamed up with O’Reilly Hospitality Management and BRP Architects for the project.

To create a welcoming atmosphere, the design team blended a cool-meets-warm color palette with honey-hued woods and bronzed metals, mimicking the diverse landscapes found throughout Arkansas. 

The hotel’s opening reception area has a gray accent wall with gold crackle and a lighting fixture that resembles modern tree branches. Biophilic elements are woven throughout the property: The lobby is outfitted with nature-inspired artwork, a green wall and fountain, abstract carpeting inspired by local lakes, along with wooden ceiling tiles and accent walls.

Hotel Optimization Part 3 | January 27, 2021

With 2020 behind us and widespread vaccine distribution on the horizon, the second half of the new year is looking up, but for Q1 (and most likely well into Q2) we’re very much still in the thick of what has undeniably been the lowest point of the pandemic. What can you be doing now to power through and set yourself up for a prosperous 2021 and beyond? Join us at Part 3 of Hotel Optimization – A Virtual Event on January 27 from 10am – 1:05pm ET for expert panels focused on getting you back to profitability.


An open dining and bar lounge area is located past reception and is similarly designed with a connection to nature. As the focal point of the hotel lobby, the bar has a dark metal front, industrial back bar shelving with gold and bronze metal mesh cabinet doors and custom drop-pendant lighting. 

The design team dressed the guestrooms and suites in a palette of warm and cool hues with curated architectural details.
