Guide to the Contract Furniture Industry

— 28 February 2020

Have a read of our latest blog post which answers some of our frequently asked questions on the use of contract furniture.

1. What is contract furniture?
Contract furniture is intended for commercial use. It is manufactured with added strengthening features to withstand use in environments such as bars, restaurants, hotels and other spaces that are subject to heavy traffic on a regular basis.


2. Why do I need contract furniture?
Contract furniture is more cost-effective for businesses as you don’t need to purchase new furniture every few months if it breaks or gets damaged. Bespoke contract furniture is designed and manufactured differently to ensure durability and withstand the rigors a contract environment endures. Contract furniture must meet contract quality requirements and its upholstery and finishes must meet the hospitality environment standards. Therefore, when specifying fabrics for your furniture they must meet all the British Standards for flammability including Crib 5 FR (Fire Retardant).


3. How much does contract furniture cost?
All our projects are custom which means that no two are the same. We don’t have a price list as our projects are individually quoted for.
