Art, music, culture, design are all the things very close to all personnel at Furniture Fusion. When we were approached by the hot new startup Keakie, whose influences and values equal ours, we knew this was the project for us.

Keakie isn’t your typical office, two floors are open plan, with plenty of lounge spaces, meeting room and even a recording studio. We suggested a mix of classic shapes and bespoke retro pieces, leather and fabric, with a touch of wood and metal, to keep with the current design trends.
The upstairs meeting room features a bespoke, 6 metre long table with a cross base and waney edge character oak top. Each of the Sonny PB Q chairs was upholstered in Camira River, the sustainable fabric made from recycled plastic bottles. We selected various hues of the range to give the room a bit of colour.
Desks and office chairs are staple in any office, but pairing it with the Baron sofa and lounge chair, makes the office super cosy and comfortable. The ideal place to record any music related podcast.
The downstairs area feels very relaxed and we suggested two retro sofas, custom made for the space. The Tonella sofa and lounge chairs in two sizes are trendy, comfortable and perfect for any breakout area. Poufs and a mix of Apelle Chic and Buddy Coffee Table complete the modern tactile look.
What really catches ones attention is our bespoke, 2.8 metre long reinforced glass fibre concrete DJ booth. Possibly the first of its kind in the UK. We love unusual materials and when we suggested concrete, the Keakie guys were as excited as we were. Designed in-house with the Keakie logo embossed, it stands for everything Keakie is about – it’s different, trendsetting and new.
Proving that office spaces don’t need to be boring, we are super pleased with the final look and can’t wait for the next office project.
