We have completed many projects for the Hilton chain over the years. For the DoubleTree by Hilton in Coventry, we were asked to produce and install bespoke furniture for the refurbishment of the meeting rooms. The brief required that we created booth-like cells, in which people could have meetings, but not be overheard. This was essential, bearing in mind these pieces were in an open plan area.

The solution was to employ the Sound high back sofas, which are acoustically stable. The height of the piece combined with the upholstery used deadens the sound coming in and more importantly getting out. These were finished in a striking, dark slate Sintra fabric with contrasting navy-blue cushions. Sky lounge chairs accompanied the sofas, which match perfectly as they are a modern take on the wing-back chair. Once again these were chosen for their acoustic qualities. The pieces were finished in the same dark slate fabric. To finish off the ensemble, we commissioned an in-house bespoke coffee table. An Eggar, Hacienda Black laminated top was inset into a black metal frame.
To furnish the adjoining breakout area we chose the Curvy lounge chair, upholstered in the same navy-blue fabric as the cushions above, tying in the whole scheme perfectly. Once again, we went down the bespoke route for the coffee tables. This time we created tri-legged metal table finished in black, including the solid metal circular top. Finally, we supplied a bespoke Poseur table, surrounded with Ola stools, which had the frames finished in black and upholstered in a stunning Panaz Brookland fabric.
The deadline we were given was 4 – 6 weeks, which we met even with the number of bespoke items. This was a great project to be involved with and the result looks stunning.
