Research & Development

When working with clients to determine which additional designs should eb developed for their portfolio, Taylor’s Classics found there was a high demand from Commercial Interior Designers for a more expansive choice of upholstered traditional style high stools, furthermore clients were interesting in having a collection of designs which compliment either other and have the option of customisation. 

The Sudbury High Stool has distinctive art deco design influences, including the front leg detail

The new Sudbury and Audley stools are both adaptations of popular traditional chairs that were already available in the Traditional Classics range: Sudbury Tub Chair & Audley Armchair. Designed in-house at Taylor’s, the new designs were launched at Northern Restaurant & Bar Show 2023.

All of Taylor’s Classics new contact furniture ranges are built to last, using high quality materials including FSC registered timber throughout.
