Restaurant Contract Furniture in Swanage, Dorset

The Village Inn, Ulwell, Swanage, Dorset



The Village Inn wanted to refurbish their restaurant and bar near Swanage in Dorset. They were looking to modernise the dated interior design to create a contemporary space that retained the classic inn vibe.

They appointed Poole-based interior design company Bocchetta Interiors to work on the project. Bocchetta Interiors has an excellent reputation for creating stunning spaces for commercial and domestic properties.

It was a pleasure to work alongside Bocchetta Interiors for the first time, for which we were tasked with designing banquette seating and supplying loose furniture for The Village Inn.

In keeping with its coastal location, the designers wanted to brighten up the space and create a nautical feel. They also wanted to make the most of the large room and its distinct features by creating a few different styles to mark the different areas.

The bench and corner seating in the restaurant was upholstered in warm mink brown fabric, with a plain and roll seating style and plinth bases. It enhanced the contemporary exposed brick and teal feature walls to complete the warm and cosy space.

In contrast, the booth seating was black faux leather, high backed and had legs for an alternative style. The monochrome furniture design complemented the feature walls to create a bright and modern design. The wooden panel feature walls create a distinct nautical look associating it with the landscape. The white wood wall looks like a ship’s hull and is complemented by the distressed wooden table-effect and the porthole mirror. This resulted in a much brighter space that bathed in the light from the windows.

The team supplied the various chairs each carefully selected and upholstered and finished to suit the different areas of the restaurant. We also provided the suede leather sofas for the bar area that matched the contemporary style.
