Our commercial bar furniture decorates renowned locations across New York and abroad, offering modern design solutions and expert craftsmanship with impressive durability.
What separates commercial furniture from residential furniture?
Commercial-grade furniture has several distinct characteristics, mainly associated with durability and speed of production. Our hospitality products represent the best quality furniture, as they benefit from special treatment throughout the production process. All of our upholstery materials offer high double rub counts, which indicate exceptional durability and resistance to continual wear and tear, and we can additionally treat them with fire-retardant solutions, as well as fade-resistance treatments, to ensure adherence to safety regulations and weather resistance. Our sofas, lounge chairs, and armchairs, feature premium padding, strong spring support, and highly durable frames, that can withstand the usage requirements of high-traffic areas.
For solid wood hospitality furniture, we use premium American hardwoods such as walnut, maple, oak, cherry, mahogany, and other sustainably harvested species. For outdoor hospitality furniture, we use teak, guarapa, black locust, ipe, tigerwood, and other South-American species that have a high tolerance for temperature differences or sun exposure, and excellent resistance against moisture and decay. Solid wood furniture pieces are polished and coated to perfection, with finishing solutions that add impressive protection and aesthetic finesse.
As an experienced furniture designer and manufacturer, we can produce commercial furniture at scale, and with the right specifications, matching the requirements of each project.
What other features does the custom hospitality furniture contract include?
Apart from customization, we offer on-site measurements and full design support, as well as ad-hoc iterations, delivery, and installation.
We deliver our furniture personally across the Northeastern region of the United States or collaborate with reputable partners to ship the finished products nationwide and across the sea to any destination. We can also deliver our contract furniture securely, to warehouses or storage facilities around the world.
