From Ideas to Installation - UK Manufactured

From Ideas to Installation - UK Manufactured

Situated in the pretty harbour town of Christchurch in Dorset, our friendly and highly skilled team of specialists create bespoke contract furniture, from ideas to installation in our very own production factory. This includes banquette seating for restaurants, hotels, cafes, pubs, bars, clubs, universities and many more types of venue in the UK and across Europe, all from our Dorset base.

We have a clear process for each order to make sure no detail is overlooked and every piece of furniture is completed to the highest standard.


Every stage of this process is managed by our experts:


Gather your initial details and visit your site to get a comprehensive understanding of your needs.

Design team

Put together the design ideas and produce CAD drawings to give you a clear understanding of the products. Once production has begun, they CNC program the components ready for construction.

Joinery experts

Build the frames in-house, paying close attention to detail and measurements to make sure everything fits together perfectly.

Spray team

Any timber and even metal components are then finished to suit the design.

Upholstery team

Bring the initial designs to life, by using the material picked out to upholster the seating.

Installation/Site team

Deliver and fit the final furnishings in place, to the highest standard.

For a detailed view of our process, take a look at our step by step guide from design to delivery.

Curved Seating

Specialist Seating

Many restaurants and pubs don’t have straightforward layouts, and the character we love about a place, such as alcoves can provide a challenge for seating. Atlas can create complete bespoke seating designs to fit in corners and alcoves or around protrusions and pillars.
