We were first approached the owners of the restaurant chain to re-upholster the existing booths in their Akbar’s Manchester restaurant. After some thought, the owners decided they wanted a full restaurant re-fit, which was to be completed by ourselves and a Bradford based shop fitting company.
After many visits and meetings with both the owners and the shop fitting company, a fabric choice and seating style was confirmed, and the project was underway.
The existing booths in the restaurant were curved, and that was a feature they wanted to keep. Keeping with the curved seating, they chose a fluted back in an Orange abstract fabric, and the seat was left plain in a Dark Grey Vinyl.
As their Manchester restaurant is one of their busiest, they couldn’t afford to close for the refurbishment. So, we had to deliver and install the seating out of restaurant hours.
Once the Manchester restaurant was completed, we were then asked to do the same for their Bradford restaurant. For the Bradford restaurant they chose different fabrics with the same fluted fabric back and plain vinyl seat.
Working with the shop fitting company for this project has been great for us, as we have been given additional jobs and are currently pricing for future jobs!
