Bespoke Contract Furniture – Spotlight On A Recent Chaise Longue

Posted on: December 15th, 2015 by Steven Hawkins add your comment / view existing comments

Bespoke Contract Furniture – Craftwork Design And Build A Chaise Longue 

Chaise lounge3-2

Our team was approached by a customer to produce a chaise longue for a specific location in an overall scheme.  Craftwork designed this modern twist on a classic piece of furniture and as we manufacture ourselves, we could produce a sample within 2 days of receiving the request.

We built this bespoke chaise longue with a solid timber frame, a flowing drop arm across the back and a cap on scroll arm on the side. Two tapered and two turned legs completed the look.

The result was a generously proportioned chaise that precisely fitted the customer’s brief. An elegant feature piece, manufactured to exacting contract furniture standards.  By building on our furniture manufacturing and design experience, whether you’re furnishing a hotel, care home, student accommodation or a sports club, we can help you achieve what you’re after.
