This National Hotel Chain asked us to reupholster their dining room benches like for like, using a similar faux leather vinyl in a similar colour.
The problem with trying to match existing colours is, if they are not an EXACT match, the results will look awful. In these instances we always recommend a contrasting fabric and colour.
In this instance we recommended Sunbury Aquaclean faux suede fabric. The client could look at this fabric in practice on the Sunbury Designs website, and see for themselves how easy it is to clean regardless of what has been dropped or spilled on it, using just a wet cloth. The feel of the fabric is soft and luxurious, and it is incredibly hard wearing. It is classed as a “Severe Contract” fabric, but many Domestic customers also prefer its comfort and convenience.
Given the go ahead, we collected the benches mid-morning on a Monday to avoid the breakfast rush, leaving the Restaurant manger with our loan chairs free of charge, for the short time he would be without his benches.
Fully reupholstered benches were refitted on the same Thursday morning. The whole project completed, on time with no fuss, no disruption, but a happy customer and, we think, a very pleasing result.
