Leading shopping centre coffee shop chain selects Design & Contract Furniture again for new stores
As nationwide shopping centre coffee shop chain, bb’s Coffee and Muffins, expands across the UK and Ireland, Design & Contract Furniture has been selected to provide more bespoke furniture for the newly opening stores.
Renowned for its tempting range of freshly baked ‘made on site’ muffins and delicious barista coffees, bb’s Coffee and Muffins, as part of the Retail Food Group, has over 50 stores across the UK and Ireland with three recent new store openings in Maidstone, Ipswich and King’s Lynn and plans to open another 10 this year.
As the company’s long-term furniture provider, Design & Contracts worked closely with the opening stores to provide the right furniture to match the brand’s existing theme. Amongst the tailor made furniture is a range of faux leather arm chairs and banquette seating, as well as Billiani dining chairs and solid ash dining tables.
Design & Contracts has worked with bb’s Coffee and Muffins for over 15 years and provides furniture for the majority of the brand’s high street stores.
Andrew Moyes, Group CEO (UK and ROI) of the Retail Food Group commented,
“We have worked with Design & Contracts for many years and we have always found them to be extremely reliable and flexible in what they offer. As a brand we have an image that we need to portray across all of our stores and this is something we have been able to achieve through the furniture they have supplied.”
As a busy shopping centre coffee shop chain, bb’s Coffee and Muffins receives a high number of customers each day and therefore required furniture that is able to withstand constant use without compromising the quality or appearance.
Andrew Moyes commented again,
“All of the furniture supplied by Design & Contracts is very high quality and robust which has made them an attractive choice for newly opening stores. The team at Design & Contracts are always very helpful and supportive and continue to provide an excellent service long after each project is completed.”
Amongst the many seating options are a number of retro-inspired Milan and Ludo armchairs, upholstered in Skai Sotega Nature and Olive faux leather. The two vibrant colours present a modern, stylish twist on classic armchairs, with contrasting coloured buttons for extra decoration. The armchairs offer exceptional comfort with cushioned seat and back pads.
Design & Contracts also provide banquette seating in Skai Sotega Nature faux leather, with contrasting buttoned backs in Begonia and Elderflower Sunbury fabric. The style of the seating reflects the retro theme of the armchairs; however the earth-coloured leather fashionably contrasts with the entire furniture scheme. Like the armchairs, the banquette seating provides a comfortable option in the form of sofa-like seating.
Other seating options include traditional Bentwood chairs with a natural wooden frame, as well as sleek Billiani Pop chairs in a light and dark Zebrano finish, are supplied to add an element of simple elegance to the cafés.
Bespoke cushions are also provided for extra decoration, using Sunbury Aquaclean Belfast fabric in a range of colours, including Lizard, Begonia and Elderflower to add to the mix of pale pinks and greens presented across the stores.
All of the contemporary seating options are complemented with a range of mixed-sized, solid ash dining tables with a natural polished finish.
Design & Contract Furniture have worked with a large number of bars, cafés and restaurants nationwide to provide bespoke furniture and upholstery services. The company prides itself in offering furniture to match any corporate branding themes, or can work with its customers to create a fresh furniture scheme according to any interior design brief.
