You'll find that most of the companies in the NC are making pretty traditional furniture, the fact that you are on this site would suggest to me you are interested in more modern and contemporary furniture, if this is not the case head to NC and be happy.
Southwest Michigan is a hub of Contract Furniture
Not familiar with the "Hospitality Design" as furniture genre.

Are you talking about the furniture found in hotel lobbies and guest rooms? Restaurants?
"Contract" equates to airport waiting areas, public areas, etc.
Post a few generic images, if you would.

However, the big office furniture guys (Knoll, Steelcase, Allsteel, Herman Miller, etc.) all make/design or both, this type of furniture.

I like your attitude and passion for furniture design. I am thinking about trying to get into it any way I can and have started to build up a collection of woodworking tools and would like to move make my own furniture in the next few years.
One thing though, as a woodworker I think more detail on how your designs are constructed would be great. People like to know that a piece of furniture has mortice and tenon/lap/dado/dovetail/etc... etc... joints and not dowelled or screwed together. This is my pet hate with "designer" furniture. A lot of it is constructed just like ikea crap but with a hefty price tag.
Even if it's not wood, it would be good to see the joint details.
Maybe check out finewoodworking.com and other sites to see the terminology.
