Bar stools – an integral part of a venue’s design and comfort

  • POSTED ON: Friday 01, 2018

UHS Group is a leading supplier of  quality bar stools – perfect for the hospitality and commercial industry. We understand that bar stools are so much more than “space savers” in venues. They are an integral element of an establishment’s overall design and comfort. Our durable and stylish bar stools range from ultra-modern wire framed metal stools to classic wooden pieces.

The biggest hospitality chains have selected UHS as their quality bar stool supplier:

Be At One cocktail bars has worked with UHS Group across a number of venues to create the perfect cocktail bar. The well-known bar chain asks its customers to “leave the world outside and join us for a cocktail, crafted just for you by our energetic and skilled bartenders, whilst getting lost in the music and atmosphere around you”. Our furniture (especially the bar stools) certainly adds to the Be At One party atmosphere – as well as stylish, they are of great quality (so can withstand the energy of Be At One!).

• We’ve worked with the Sheffield branch of Australian bar, Walkabout, to supply them with a range of seating – perfect for a venue with a chilled out day-time vibe followed by a busy night life.

The Cabin Bar, Bristol Airport is electric luxury! We’ve created bright blue barstools for this premium bar (complete with rooftop terrace). With fine wine, craft beers and delicious food on offer, our barstools fit right in.

Design or Durability… why not both?

When selecting the best bar stool – or any other furniture – for your venue or refurbishment project, is durability at the top of the list? Or do you value design over “robustness”? At UHS, we believe that both demands should be of equal importance.

We’re able to subject furniture to a set of tests created specifically for the hospitality sector, as well as British Standards of endurance contract level 2, and BIFMA – the American furniture standard. Products passing these tests are “RIGA certified” and are marked as fit for purpose for the hospitality public sector.

But if you’re looking to create your own masterpiece, using our product configurator, you can do just that. The configurator allows you to select from the following specifications:

• Design: wire or wood frames, solid or soft seating, high back, low back or no back, choose the stool design to suit your establishment.

• Colour: from the frame, legs, seat pad and back pad, your colour schemes are completely flexible.

• Material: choose from a range of leathers and fabrics in virtually any colour to match your décor.

• Finish: from wood to laminate and metal finishes, you have complete creative
licence to design the perfect look.

Printeriors approached UHS to help them supply furniture for their stand at the Fespa event in Berlin – this came after they saw images of the futuristic but retro looking Kite Chair.

Printeriors is a unique exhibit showcasing the many developing opportunities and benefits of using print in the interior design sector.

Forming part of the visitor experience at the FESPA Global Print Expo, in Berlin from 15-18 May, join designers, printers and manufacturers from all over Europe in discovering the innovative print applications and technology open to the interior design market.

Print is revolutionising the way designers and architects work and leading the way for digital technology in production. This means shorter lead times in addition to more economical, straightforward and environmentally friendly processes.

We supplied furniture for the Printeriors stand at the Fespa event in Berlin. The theme of the stand was an “Airport Lounge of 2030” so our timeless Jack Coffee table, and retro Kite chairs fitted perfectly with the design.

It’s that time of year again when the outdoors opens up… We see some great inspiration from London terraces, Rome rooftops, Parisian streets and the riverside in Cologne.

An outdoor terrace, eating or social space is an area that requires as much attention as the interior as it become increasingly popular to eat outdoors. Nestling into a corner with sheepskin rugs, scatter cushions and a Rosemary Lemonade Cocktail as the evening dusk settles is a great time for friendly chats, happy laughter and refreshing social gatherings!

To create that space that is stimulating we have a range of outdoor contract furniture that is colourful, in metal, plastic or timber. Add some seating in an Olive green tone with some Pastel pinks along with the Mill Collection tables, throw a rug over the seat, backdrop it with a plant scheme and climbers and there you have it a space to chill!
