Commercial Furniture

Commercial furniture is furniture used by businesses and in other places of work; it includes furniture in offices as well as public dining and entertainment-type venues, most typically restaurants, hotels, pubs and cafes. Commercial furniture is generally hard-wearing and reasonably easy to maintain.

Commercial furniture is supplied by companies such as The Contract Chair Co and is generally made to order; as a result it is available in a wider choice of designs and finishes than is available in the retail market. Downsides of being made to order included sometimes substantial minimum order quantities, lead times being 4 to 6  weeks and returning of products being difficult.

Commercial furniture is subject to particular fire regulations that do not necessarily apply to furniture used in your home; our furniture comes with CMHR foam (ie foam that does not easily ignite or burn) and is usually specified with fabric that meets Crib 5 flammability test (a fairly stringent industry standard).
