In September 2023, Footasylum approached us for a range of bespoke seating to place front and center in their flagship store in Oxford Street, London. They were looking for exceptionally high quality, handmade seats that would be a perfect fit with their brand style and colours.
They shared their vision with us, of a clear design concept that would perfectly pair with the store, and we got straight to work to bring their vision to life, hand-making two large bespoke benches and eight pleated seating benches.
On successful completion and delivery of our bespoke commercial benches, Alex Haidash, Footasylum Project Manager said she was thrilled with our response to their brief.
As a trusted and reliable partner, it was a pleasure to work on seats for such a well respected brand, with our seating taking pride of place in their central retail store. We hope to work with Footasylum in the future as they develop their brand and store presence throughout the UK.
In a similar manner, leading Shoe Shop brand Clarks Shoes approached us in late 2021, when their business was about to embark on a major rebrand and store revamp. Their brief to us was for modular cube seating - to enhance the layout of their stores and offer better accessibility for customers. It was critical for their seating to reflect their brand identity and fit with the style and colour of their stores.
We worked with them all through the roll out of their branded, bespoke seating range, throughout 2022, which was completed earlier this year. In all, we handmade and produced beautiful bespoke cube and footstool seating to over 20 stores, from concessions in Portugal and Cyprus, to UK stores including the Isle of Man, Glasgow, and Preston.
Andy Brook Construction Manager, at Clarks Group Properties said he was delighted with the store revamps and that “Footstools Direct was a key furniture supplier to Clarks and a trusted partner in their success”. We were immensely proud of the seating we made for them, which was a perfect fit with their staff, customers and shoeshops.
We have worked with many other businesses to offer branded, commercial and bespoke seating across the UK and beyond. Some of our most recent partnerships have been with The Sidemen clothing brand, Chelsea FC, Ibis Hotels, Jet2, ITV, Chanel, and BBC to name but a few.
We offer a great choice of high quality, comfortable seating that will last for years, even in a commercial or retail setting. Our seats ranges from lightweight, easy-to-move stools to larger, more heavy-duty storage seating if clients and businesses need something a bit bolder.
Whether you are looking for a new collection of stools for your bar, comfortable handmade seats for a hotel lobby, colour matched cubes for your office, reception, or waiting room, we have a great selection to choose from.
We also offer bespoke branded seating, Across all our branded seating we can add logos, straplines, and messaging using ultra-high definition printing to make your business seating stand out and seamlessly match your branding. You can put any logo or text on any one of our faux leathers!
All our seating is available to hire, so if you need seats for a single event such as an event or exhibition then we can ensure you get everything you need delivered right to where you need it, and collected after use. All our hire seating is handmade and thoroughly checked.
If you’re making a large commercial or business order with us, then you can take advantage of our large order discounts, offered on seating orders of 10 units or more.
