The Wine Room

Keith Hobbs

When you travel across the country servicing a growing client base, it’s easy to forget about the wealth of fantastic hospitality options on your doorstep. So when we are called in to take care of the upholstery on a local project we are always delighted. 

The Wine Room City opened last week following the success of its sister bar, The Wine Room Mapperley. Situated on High Pavement at the entrance to the Lace Market, it really makes the most of its beautiful surrounds. They offer hand-picked wines from across the world and a great range of sharing plates, cheeses and charcuterie – all in a plush and stylish setting.

Opening night was fun. Often when we do an install we don’t always get to stick around and see the new furniture being enjoyed, so it was great to be able to experience the buzz and see our upholstery being appreciated and admired.

If you are looking to open, enhance or protect your boutique venue in Notts we would love to help. Locally based, we install, maintain and protect all types of furniture, specialising in upholstery.

Behind the Scenes

Keith Hobbs

Ever wondered how we create such stunning upholstered furniture or restore the glory of well-used items? Wonder no more! Film-maker Tim Hobbs, of Whittle Films, has been documenting some of our processes for us so we can show you what happens behind the scenes in our upholstery workshop.

Our Master Craftsman, Colin Price, is an experienced upholsterer with an eye for detail. It’s a treat to watch him work as he creates, restores, repairs and maintains a broad range of furniture items.

It takes skill and experience to create such consistently high quality items, to install them correctly, and maintain them expertly. We are fortunate to have Colin in our team.

Installing Success

Keith Hobbs

As we’ve all enjoyed a summer of reconnection, it’s been great to see so many venues full again with everyone enjoying eating out and drinking with friends once more. We’ve certainly been busy as demand for stylish, safe and well maintained interiors continues.

But we know the hospitality sector is ever-evolving too, and it’s really exciting to watch so many new restaurant and hotel groups embracing UK culture. From Wendy’s to Whistle Punks, expansion is the order of the day!

It seemed a good moment to remind our readers of our installation services. Whether it’s custom ordering stations, bespoke seating or supplied furniture, our expert team manage all aspects of installation as part of your new fit out. We can dovetail with your construction team or work independently, offering specialist hospitality installation and fit out.

From our central Midlands location, we work across the UK, installing success for large hospitality groups and small independents. You can get a flavour of one such project in this short video:

Our dedicated installation team is highly skilled in providing refurbishments and fit-out for the hospitality and leisure industry, on budget and to deadline, with minimal disruption to your business. With services ranging from architectural joinery and frame making, to bespoke upholstery and laminating, we offer a complete solution – all carried out at our dedicated workshops.

We also know the job isn’t done once installation is complete. Our brand image maintenance service can protect your investment by providing a programme of regular maintenance to keep your venue looking fresh. So, looking to expand your network of venues? Get in touch – we would love to be part of your dream installation team.
