    Seating by Design at Knightsbridge is helping to create a special atmosphere for golfers and non-golfers alike in the clubhouse at the award-winning Gleneagles Hotel in Perthshire. From its idyllic position next to the King’s and Queen’s 18th holes, the intimate Dormy Clubhouse allows guests to enjoy panoramic views across the world-famous Gleneagles golf courses. Although the sporting heritage is ever-present, the clubhouse still exudes a relaxed and cosy ambience, thanks to sensitive interpretation by London-based design company Sedley Place. Arranged around a circular central fireplace, the comfortable lounge is complemented both by a distinctive horseshoe-shaped bar and by a restaurant where picture windows present diners with a spectacular vista.

    Helping to generate this warm welcome is an array of seating selected by Craig Abbott of Sedley Place from the exclusive Design at Knightsbridge portfolio. The Ticino collection is well-represented in the order, with a dozen two-seater settees, eight easy club chairs and nearly 80 upright armchairs. Created for Design at Knightsbridge by James A Wright, Ticino is inspired by timeless geometry, with its understated styling echoed across a wide selection of product options. Backs are buttoned or plain – as selected for the Dormy Clubhouse.

    The Ticino seating is complemented perfectly by 40 Maya upright armless chairs, also by Design at Knightsbridge. Making an equally subtle design statement, Maya features deep and supportive chair backs topped by curvaceous wooden capping rails which sweep sensuously down to graceful tapered legs. In addition to upright armless chairs, the collection includes armchairs in upright and easy forms plus matching bar stools.

    Both Ticino and Maya are available in fabric or hide upholstery. Show-wood details are in Cherry, Mahogany, Natural Beech, Wenge, Walnut and Oak, and the seating is manufactured at Knightsbridge headquarters in West Yorkshire, using timber from renewable sources.

    Contemporary in style and yet traditional in craftsmanship, Design at Knightsbridge furniture captures perfectly the ethos of a company which traces its heritage back over some 75 years. A dedicated sales division and supporting website are the global gateway to the company’s full portfolio of products and services: call 01274 731900 or visit www.design-at-knightsbridge.co.uk
