    Stylematters, who are renowned for designing and manufacturing high quality contract furniture for many of the leading names in the UK hospitality and leisure sectors, have just completed a major project involving over 300 bespoke items for the new lakeside Fonab Castle development.

    Located on the lakeside by the world famous Pitlochry Theatre, Fonab Castle has undergone a grand refurbishment transforming it into a magnificent hotel residence. The boutique hotel offers breath-taking views and with the luxurious interior refurbishment, this is the most exciting boutique hotel to visit in Scotland.

    Stylematters were delighted to be selected to design, supply and manufacture all furniture for this truly unique project. Working alongside the owners Jed and Joanne Clarke, Stylematters have supplied over 300 bespoke pieces of furniture that reflected the true beauty and character of the Castle. These include traditional chesterfield sofas upholstered in contemporary colour palettes which contrast well with the restored wood panelled walls and feature ornate fireplaces in the drawing rooms and stylish bars. Furniture layouts and styles were important to create interesting and cosy corners to sit small groups or couples in the main lounge and a smaller lounge adjoining the main spiral staircase in the castle.


    We are delighted to have been involved in the transformation of the castle to 18 individual boutique bedrooms plus a magnificent bridal suite situated on the top floor. The extensive project also included a huge extension to the Castle houses, creating a dining room to house 120 guests, conference room, a further 26 bedrooms. Also within the grounds are 12 superb holiday lodges that have been designed and furnished to the highest standard.


    “It was a pleasure working on this project and particularly with a client having such enthusiasm and knowledge of Interior Design and the clever use of modern colours in traditional fabrics, wall coverings and flooring, resulting in a complete enhancement of the historic castle.”
