It’s 2018! Happy New Year and welcome to our newsletter edition TWELVE. After our last newsletter it went into a busy period for inspiration at events such as Design Junction, London Design Fair and so on… We burnt up a few miles whilst visiting these and have some inspirational images included in this edition. This year is a year of focus on many key areas of the business and the teams will be having a number of quarterly targets to hit in order to develop some exciting projects from product development to the new catalogue and global development. If you would like to find out about a specific project or product, please email us at [email protected] or contact our team on 0330 1222 400.

ANOTHER PLACE HOTEL

Another Place is a new collection of hotels. Whether on the coast, by a lake, in the countryside or the city, each hotel will reflect its distinct, exceptional location. Another Place hotels are for people who want to experience a new environment to its full, without losing a sense of home and belonging. UHS worked closely with the design team and the team from Watergate Bay to come up with a fantastic range of furniture for the inside and out to enhance the experience and comfort for the guests.

TRENDS

Our favourite trends at the moment is that comfy lounge look with the eclectic mix of sofas, ottomans, sheepskin rugs and coffee tables all perfect for that impromptu meeting or agile workspace where you can let the creativity with a coffee flow.

ALESSANDRO BORGHESE RESTAURANT

“Cooking is an act of love, I want to convey an emotion, I want to please you who comes to visit me, I want to make my guests happy” Alessandro Borghese. In this project we supported the architect Alfredo Canelli to achieve the outstanding restaurant for Celebrity Chef Alessandro Borghese.

WHO IS NEW?

Spot light on our newest team member – Kelly Gilbert:

WHAT DO YOU DO AT UHS?
As Key Account Manager I’m responsible for maximising opportunities with key accounts with the aim of becoming the sole or primary supplier. I maintain and nurture key stakeholder relationships enabling me to best understand and meet the needs of our customers. Representing UHS at all times with the highest possible levels of professionalism and integrity.
WHAT CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT YOUR LIFE OUTSIDE OF WORK?
I love to cook and to share that with family and friends whether they want me to or not! Travelling is a passion I try to indulge as often as possible and often has the bonus of leading me to new culinary discoveries. I love meeting new people, seeing new places and learning about different cultures and ways of doing things, which fascinates me. I also love going to live music events and can often be found at various gigs and festivals.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE FOOD?
Too many to list based on mood, season and which way the wind is blowing at any given time. However being South African I can’t really not say, quite simply, a well seasoned rare steak accompanied by a great Pinotage.

FOCUS ON CO-WORKING!

A new trend that is revolutionising the workplace! A new generation trend… UHS are currently collaborating with some of the top Co Working providers supplying a great range of products to furnish the spaces.

NANDO’S RESTAURANT | SOHO, LONDON

Located on Frith Street in Soho, London – this brand new Nando’s restaurant shows it’s true South African colours. Gold and Green leathers are ever present, with exotic reds and bright yellows popping out on selected dining chairs and tables. The table tops and fixed dining tables are real show stoppers, with light and dark stains creating the most amazing patterns. This restaurant is truly one of a kind, and we at UHS Group are delighted to have supplied the furniture for it!

EVENTS

ADVENT CALENDAR – We sweetened up our clients with a months’ worth of traditional sweets, every day in our advent calendars there was either a lemon sherbets, lime chocolates, rhubarb and custard or humbug!

END OF YEAR MEAL – As always we had a fantastic and happy ending to the year with a meal set on by the Directors! This time we had festive burgers that consisted of a high quality burger with bacon, deep fried camembert and cranberry sauce, fries and Beer battered onion rings… followed by a chocolate brownie and cream. We did not go home hungry!

ITALY STRATEGY DAY IN ROME – The Global team got together at the end of the year to strategise a collaboration and move forward on a global scale. A great couple of days with, as usual, amazing food that you al ways get in Italy.

As well as providing stylish furniture, UHS Group understands the importance of furniture safety in commercial and public settings.

UHS Group is known for its hospitality projects. As a result, our knowledge of developing resilient furniture fit for use in challenging public environments is comprehensive (furniture safety is of paramount importance to us).

 

 

After realising the need for a hospitality furniture endurance standard, we developed RIGAtesting – an independent hospitality furniture testing house. The knowledge required to develop this standard puts us in a unique position as a student furniture supplier – we’re able to combine established furniture standards and perform additional unique tests in line with our clients’ requirements. For more information, visit: www.rigatest.com

 

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!

Who doesn’t enjoy classic pub food on a lazy Sunday after a lovely countryside walk, or perhaps as a mid-week treat? As well as the food, sinking into a deliciously comfortable armchair by a wood burner, or perching outside in a bright beer garden, are some of the experiences that make spending time in a rustic pub so great. In addition to the beer, wine, and food, the furniture plays an integral role in the pub experience and should be carefully considered.

Rustic pub furniture ideas by UHS Group

Discussions surrounding rustic pub furniture evoke images of wooden tables and chairs, benches and stools, complemented by exposed brick and beams. As a pub furniture supplier, we’ve worked with a number of establishments to create their ideal look – ranging from modern, to industrial, to retro, to rustic. Our case studies area will provide you with some inspiration for your furniture project.

If you’re acquiring furniture for your rustic pub, or your working on a concept, consider some of the options below.

Banana Barstool
The Banana Barstool would look great up against a smart yet old-fashioned bar. It’s upholstered in EP 90 black and has piping in EP 81. At 1070mm high, it’s the perfect size for standard bar top heights.

Dion Barstool
The Dion Barstool exhibits a wooden walnut finish with brown faux leather upholstery. A robust barstool, a number of these seats would look great lining a high table.

Chadwick Tub Chair
The Chadwick Tub Chair can be upholstered in fabric or leather. It’s the perfect choice for rustic pubs with a focus on comfortable and stylish dining areas.

Wyndham Armchair
The Wyndham Armchair is a contemporary yet classical armchair with a button back. It’s available in standard fabric and leathers within the UHS Group range. Insert a pop of colour with this chair.

Battersea Armchair
The Battersea Armchair is upholstered in leather and would look great situated in the corner of your pub or restaurant – perfect for newspaper reading!

Rustic pub garden furniture

Our outdoor furniture selection consists of tables, chairs, benches, and stools. We believe that rustic pub beer gardens look best with understated furniture – such as the Mill A Frame Picnic Bench and Monaco P Chair.

Acquiring quality, rustic indoor and outdoor pub furniture is important in creating the perfect country pub vibe – whether you are in the middle of a city or situated alongside a popular countryside walk.

What’s next after rustic pub furniture? We’ll keep you updated.
