    Once more, Hill Cross Furniture is proud to play a part in the London 2012 Olympic Games which commences on the 27th July 2012. Working alongside Penhaligon Event Consultants, Hill Cross has been completing the quick turnaround of various corporate lounge sites. White upholstery and white laminate table tops dominate the theme throughout the lounge venues. Corporate colours of the individual sponsors personalise each separate venue from bold orange polypropylene tub chairs (EDF Energy) to striking green fixed seating (Lloyds TSB).

    The EDF Energy lounge has been furnished incorporating 13 meters of straight banquette seating. Each individual section of the seating has been precisely measured and designed lining each join of the seating accurately to each table. The seating is upholstered in a stunning Jasmine white faux leather, matched with the simple Lia side chairs with chrome legs, completed finally with premium white laminate table tops.

    Various loose seating furnish the space, from the shapely square frame of the fully upholstered Verona tub chair (Jasmine white, of course) to the cube low stool in a daring and EDF-appropriate ‘paint pot orange’. The ultra modern Gliss tub chair will be also be making a statement in a transparent orange with chrome skids.

    Feature seating in a corporate bottle green is spotted through the LLoyds TSB Olympic Lounge. Floating button banquette seating will line the walls of the venue, while a large deep buttoned back to back bench sofa with bolster cushion, a grand 3 meters by 2 meters dominates the centre space of the lounge. Valentina side chairs finish the space upholstered in a vanilla fabric.

    Other venues yet to be announced are underway. From arrow head banquette seating booths precisely designed and manufactured using the CNC machine due to their complex shape, to various loose seating in shades of white and chrome, the venues truly are coming together thick and fast in preparation for this huge event.

    It is not the first time Hill Cross furniture has supplied furniture for Olympic events. In October 2008, Hill Cross furniture furnished the International Olympic Committee lounge at the winter Olympics in Turin. With the 2012 London Olympics just around the corner we are proud to be part once again of such a prestigious event.
