    Morgan Furniture, the design-led British manufacturer of contract furniture, has supplied chairs and tables for the newly opened Quarter Bar and Lounge within the boutique independent 4-star London Bridge Hotel. The new facility provides a Southwark central destination for social gatherings and informal business meetings for up to 70 people. Deep, warm colours, enduring designs and high levels of comfort ensure a relaxed atmosphere amid chic and contemporary surroundings. Opera, Seville and Verona are the three featured collections from Morgan created by Design Director Katerina Zachariades-McMahon. The Opera lounge chair has been designed with a deep seat and gently curved back for inviting comfort. Upholstered in vibrant red velvet, it contrasts wonderfully in seating groups with the higher backed Seville wing chair which is a contemporary interpretation of a traditional design. Generous and distinctive, the Seville chair features a long sweeping curve on the arm which is reminiscent of vintage style. Dining chairs with and without arms have also been used throughout the lounge from the same collection and continued at the bar, where the luxurious, curved back of the armchair is echoed in more compact form with the sumptuous Seville bar stool. Circular wooden tables from the Verona collection were also provided by Morgan.

    Morgan previously supplied bedroom furniture to the London Bridge Hotel and its sister property, the Kensington House Hotel, around 10 years ago. This furniture is still in use today – a testimony to its timeless design and high manufacturing quality, and key reasons why the client chose to return to Morgan to have the existing furniture re-upholstered and also supply a range of new soft seating designs for its latest destination bar.

    Designers for the project were Design LSM.
