Q: What is restaurant furniture?
Restaurant furniture consists of two essential elements; seating and tables. Without these two elements there is no restaurant.
Seating can come in a variety of shapes and sizes and include restaurant chairs, bar stools, booths, banquette and sofas.
Restaurant tables are made up of bases and table tops and can be ordered separately or as a whole.
Like chairs, commercial tables come in a range of shapes and sizes and includes dining tables, bistro tables, Poseur tables and coffee tables.
Q: What is the difference between indoor and outdoor commercial furniture?
In order to be weather resistant the materials used need to be able to withstand the elements. Not just rain and sun but also wind.
Q: How is Contract Furniture made?
Contract furniture may look like residential furniture and it may look like the inexpensive furniture available at large retail furniture outlets. However, there is a crucial difference in contract furniture in that it's specifically made for a different purpose.
Contract furniture is specifically made to withstand the heavy use associated with the contract environment (restaurants, cafes, bars, clubs, hotels, educational facilities, leisure environments and all other contract environments). It is the strength and durability of contract furniture that sets it apart from furniture for a commercial setting, and makes it ideal for a the contract industry.
Contract furniture may appear to be the same quality, but the materials used are a shade better - a shade more consistent - a shade more expensive, and the manufacturing process more precise and careful.
If you are really interested, the manufacturer will send you product specifications. Don't be afraid to ask and don't buy anything you're not comfortable with. These days, with OSHA and EPA requirements, full disclosure is the norm.
Q: Can you make bespoke items?
Yes we do, have a look at the bespoke section of our website. Inside Out benefits from a UK based workshop and in-house design team who together design and build an extensive range of bespoke items to meet specific design briefs and budgets.
Q: I’m starting a restaurant. At what stage in my design process should I contact you?
As soon as possible. Selecting the right style of restaurant furniture is critical for setting the mood, maximising the number of covers in your restaurant, and communicating the high standards you may wish to portray to your customers. It is important to purchase restaurant furniture that is contract quality to ensure durability, and the restaurant furniture supplied by Inside Out Contracts is the highest quality and the highest durability. We will happily visit site, take accurate measurements and discuss models and upholstery options as well as how to make best use of your space.
Q: Is there a standard price for bespoke seating?
No, there is no standard price for bespoke seating because every piece we create is different, and we take all factors into consideration when pricing a bespoke unit including the fabric, finish, dimensions and style, making it impossible to give a standard price. Each piece of bespoke furniture we hand make is tailor made for your environment; Inside Out create these pieces for those looking for something different and unique specifically created for their venue.
Q: When can I expect to receive my order?
We hold many products in stock for a 2-3 day delivery time. However, we also manufacture many items to order, when it usually takes 4 – 6 weeks for us to complete your order. We are aware that you may have urgent furniture requirements and we are often able to deliver within a very short time-frame – do please ask and if we can possibly help we always will.
