Contract Furnishings Limited works across a huge range of sectors and professions, using the full scope of our design experience and one million plus fabric and colour combinations in projects for student accommodation, keyworker accommodation and more.
Every project is a wholly bespoke, 100% individual design, colour matched where necessary with existing furnishings or corporate brand guidelines and all fabrics meet the required British Standard BS 5867 Part 2 type B/C for fire retardancy.
Working both directly with universities and with private contractors undertaking student accommodation upgrades, we have created cost effective design packages for many halls of residence and university owned student accommodation.
Designing for the higher education sector has its own challenges, not least including effective blackout fabrics to promote the restful sleep needed for effective study.
We’re used to working within the tight refurbishment deadlines dictated by the academic calendar and whether it’s a complete interior refurbishment of curtains, blinds, bedding and towels or a ‘refresh and revive’ operation using budget performance fabrics, you can be confident everything will be in place, ready for the influx of students at the start of a new term.
Contract Furnishing is an approved framework contractor for a number of university purchasing consortia, including:
The importance of a restful, comfortable environment to patient wellbeing and recovery cannot be overstated.
Contract Furnishings work extensively with public and private partners servicing the NHS to create interior design solutions for hospitals, GP practices, dentists and care homes in colourways that put patients at their ease and provide a positive working environment for healthcare professionals.
The critical consideration for soft furnishing in healthcare is hygiene. Conventional fabrics can harbour germs of all kinds, so we draw on state of the art antibacterial products that inhibit the growth of micro-organisms between washes and which are washable at 71 degrees centigrade in line with NHS infection control standards.
All the fabrics included in our healthcare solutions are hardwearing, easy to clean and fire retardant to the strictest safety standards and all blinds feature safety chain controls to comply with child safety legislation.
Contract Furnishing is an approved supplier to the UK Ministry of Defence – an achievement that has meant meeting and continuing to achieve rigid technical and performance specifications.
Designing to create a comfortable but practical environment for the many thousands of service personnel and their families living in MoD accommodation, we provide soft furnishings in performance fabrics that are hard wearing and reliable, drawing on the latest colour trends and contemporary designs.
Crucial to the KPIs we are expected to meet on a daily basis are the levels of stock we hold to guarantee as rapid a response as possible to the requirements of the armed forces. As a result, projects are brought to fruition with military precision, meaning a typical key contract is, on average, delivered 5 days ahead of its 14 day schedule.
Of all sectors, the hotel business is perhaps the one where the quality of bedding, towels, curtains and accessories is absolutely central to the customer experience and, ultimately, the the success of the business.
That’s why our services and products for the leisure industry include a huge range of luxurious, high quality fabrics, designed and finished to the highest of 5 star standards.
At the same time, we also cater for the budget end of the market with durable, performance products that score high on practicality and value for money.
Working to a large volume install or a planned delivery programme, our design and installation teams will create exactly the right ambience in hotel bedrooms, reception areas, lounges and restaurants using hard wearing yet stylish fabrics that wear better and extend intervals between refurbishments.
All tested and certified to the strictest standards for colour fastness, stain resistance and fire retardancy.
