Inside Out Contracts is 20!

- Apr 29, 2019


It all began in ‘99.

Founder of Inside Out Contracts Lisa Cluer had noticed a growing demand for contemporary, design-led contract furniture. Starting with a small selection of pieces from a handful of workshops, Lisa stepped forth into the world of hospitality furnishing and won her first big client; McDonalds UK.

Throughout the years, Lisa and her dedicated team of design enthusiasts have grown to distinguish Inside Out as a successful leader and trend setter for hospitality furniture design in the UK and beyond. Clients include; Curzon Cinemas, AEG Lounge at the O2, Novotel Hotels, Krispy Kreme, Gaucho, Central Saint Martins, Marriott Hotels, El&n café & British Airways i360.

All with their impressive and ever-growing collection of design-led furniture both ready-made and made to measure by our bespoke workshop here in the UK.


Today, 20 years on, Inside Out Contracts showcases an extensive portfolio of clients with projects spanning across the globe. This is all down to Inside Out’s continued dedication to maintain and excel in their primary aim to provide stylish contract furniture with a smile.
