    Morgan, the design-led British manufacturer of contract furniture, has once again exhibited in Florida as part of the ‘Best of British’ line-up at Cruise Shipping Miami. From 11-14th March 2013, Morgan joined forces with Skopos, Brintons, Muraspec, Trimline and SMC Design on Stand 2209 where they presented attractive and authoritative furnishings and interior design solutions for the international cruise market. Products on display included the Pastille 5055 and Seville 753ASQ lounge chairs with button back detail. Pastille dining chairs and stools offer contemporary comfort and elegant show wood detailing; with the 5055 model featuring a hidden swivel mechanism, originally designed for Crystal Cruise Symphony. Seville chairs, stools and sofas feature sweeping curved arms which are reminiscent of vintage style, a diamond stitch and button detail was added to the Seville 753ASQ for Crystal Cruises Serenity. Both collections, created by Morgan Design Director Katerina Zachariades, offer timeless style, compact footprints and a comfortable long sit making them perfect choices for cruise liners.

    The cruise sector is a highly successful market for Morgan thanks to their ability to apply the Marine Quality Mark to produce attractive and practical furniture pieces of unsurpassed quality which fully conform to Marine Contract standards. Examples of recent projects include the Crystal Serenity and Saga Sapphire.

    Eight inspired collections from Morgan, including some specially-adapted designs, appeared on board the Saga Sapphire, providing comfort and ocean-going style for up to 706 passengers. Designed to appeal to more modern tastes, the Saga Sapphire has a fun, quirky feel which was inspired by the British seaside. Morgan chair and table collections featured are Siena, Como, Seville, Hampton, Verona, Atlantic, Boston and Rotunda.

    Seville and Pastille chairs were chosen by the design team of the Crystal Serenity, who travelled over from Canada to meet the Morgan team at the head office factory in Emsworth, Hampshire. Upholstered in white leather, the Pastille chairs are invitingly comfortable and elegant in the retail area onboard, while the Seville dining chairs feature a diamond stitched button detail for a uniquely luxurious finishing touch in the Penthouse Suites.

    Latest original Morgan collections include Lucca and Modena, both of which are ideally suited to the cruise sector. The fully upholstered Lucca side chair features a continuous piping detail which accentuates the radiused profile and looks striking when upholstered in a contrasting fabric. The seat appears to float on the elegant show wood base. There is also a matching dining height table. Contemporary and luxurious, the Modena collection features lounge chairs and sofa as well as a modular sofa. The chair is generous and features a sweeping upholstered arm detail that creates a sharp profile but also a soft inviting shape. The modular sofa has been designed with a hand crafted show wood base that links the units and avoids double legs.

    Morgan is recognised for its exemplary eco-credentials, a fact independently endorsed by the ISO14001 environmental standard. All products are manufactured in a low energy consuming factory, using sustainable FSC timber, top quality CMHR foams and non rusting fittings.
