The importance of choosing a quality seating manufacturer

The importance of choosing a quality seating manufacturer

Choosing a quality seating manufacturer for your bar or restaurant

By nature, your restaurant or bar seating will see a high volume of traffic on a daily basis. Having high quality, stylish, and comfortable seating in your venue will play a key role in the success of your business.

Banquette seating is often the top choice for busy bars and restaurants due to its versatility, style, and durability. Plus, they’re popular with customers due to their privacy, cosiness, and comfort. Banquette seating offers an efficient use of space, allowing you to maximise the unique features of your building’s layout.

At Atlas Contract Furniture, we always put quality first. From the seating we manufacture and install, through to the comprehensive service we provide – quality is what we stand for. And there’s a good reason for it. Discover why you shouldn’t compromise on quality when it comes to upgrading or replacing the seating in your bar or restaurant.


Making a good first impression

It’s so important to give a good first impression to your potential customers. When walking into your establishment for the first time, they’ll be immediately drawn to the furniture, décor and ambiance to determine whether it’s somewhere they want to eat or drink.

Quick assumptions will be made to determine the comfort, cleanliness and experience on offer within those first few glances - and those impressions need to be positive! Customers who are impressed by your interior design, are comfortable during their visit, and feel they’re in good hands are more likely to become repeat visitors. They’re less likely to return for tired designs and worn seating.

At Atlas Contract Furniture, our seating is fully customisable to suit your design needs and help you stand out from your competition. So you’ll be able to create and design your seating to fit the character and specific needs of your bar or restaurant. You can choose from thousands of high-quality materials, limitless seating designs and variations, different leg styles, decorative elements, and unique added extras. We specialise in completely bespoke seating solutions that are unique and tailored to your exact requirements. The possibilities are endless.

Consider you seating durability

Hard-wearing upholstery covers

To build those positive first and lasting impressions, your seating not only needs to look the part, but also be able to hold up against the high amount of use it will see during its lifetime. Ensuring your banquette seating can stand the test of time should be high on the agenda when choosing your options.

Our devoted team will be able to talk you through the best upholstery cover choices for your type of venue. We’ll help you strike the right balance between durability, maintenance requirements and style. After all, you don’t want the expense or hassle of having to replace poor-quality seating on a regular basis.

We have a huge library of thousands of contract-grade fabrics and leathers for you to choose from in a variety of colours, textures and materials. We can even send you samples of the upholstery cover that you’re interested in, so you can get a real look and feel for the design. If you’d rather source your own material, then we are happy to work with your supplied material too.

Construction you can trust
