RMB Projects were asked to provide two furniture schemes for the Hallward Library Café and Vespers Bar for Nottingham University. Their brief was “to create more colour, comfort and rhythm to currently sterile, symmetrical and lack lustre environments”. RMB Projects worked closely with Vickie O’Mara, sales agent from Abbotsford, and proposed two schemes specifying several fabrics from the Abbotsford collection, specifically chosen for the vibrant colours and patterns.

London Classics Westminster, Fathom Cayenne and Sunny and Exhilarate Dawlish were all fabrics from Abbotsford’s collection used to upholster a variety of dining chairs, high stools, lounge and contemporary wingback armchairs to create an interesting mix of style, shape and colour.  The schemes were completed to budget and to plan, achieving positive reactions from the client.
