    Morgan Furniture, the design-led British manufacturer of contract furniture, has exclusively supplied the soft seating and tables for refurbishment of the iconic Met Bar in London. Armchairs, low stools and bar stools from the Pastille Collection from Morgan were chosen for their ideal blend of comfort and elegance. There is also a strong element of bespoke design to meet specific project requirements.Created by Morgan Design Director, Katerina Zachariades, Pastille is a modern and versatile seating collection which combines generous upholstery with show wood detailing. In the Met Bar, padded cushions and upholstered chair backs are smartly dressed in orange and chocolate brown leather and teamed with dark wood to create a prestigious, elegant space.

    An exemplary example of bespoke design from Morgan is the L-shaped seating that takes pride of place in the window of the bar. Based around the Pastille 5052 model armchair, the approximate 3.5 x 1.5m seating section is one of the first items on view when entering the bar so was important to make a positive impact. Bespoke tables were also designed for the project with an inlaid glass detail and bespoke base.

    Set within the cool and contemporary Metropolitan Hotel in Old Park Lane, the Met Bar was first opened in 1997 and fast became an established location for a great London night out. This iconic bar has now received a major renovation resulting in a new look and style that is fit for a new era of sophisticated living. Morgan worked successfully to a tight deadline and closely with the design team throughout the project including designer, Linzi Coppick, from Forme UK and client, Comojo UK Ltd. Close contact was maintained on site with Mark Oberney and General Manager of the Metropolitan Hotel, Thomas Orchard.
