For Architects and Designers

Commercial Furniture for Architects and Interior Designers

An architect or interior designer has a multifaceted role, which relies on ideas, creativity and juggling to create THE vision that wows your client. When it comes to hospitality furniture concepts, we understand that there’s a balance of bespoke and functional, costings and style.

At Strand Hospitality Furniture, we partner with hospitality designers and commercial architects to provide all the relationship building skills that your client needs. Your clients are paying for the best in design and service and we facilitate every aspect in the area of commercial dining and venue fit outs nationally.

A Furniture Company with Hospitality

Stage 1 – Facilitating Service

As a leader in Melbourne furniture solutions, we offer the following services with you in mind:

  • Meeting client requirements within a budget
  • Facilitating ideation and creation of bespoke pieces / ranges
  • Altering and customising existing designs to suit you
  • Crafting in particular metals, fabrics or woods
  • Australian timbers and fabrics
  • Australian made manufacturing
  • Overseas manufacturing

Stage 2 – Furniture Built for Commercial Use

As one of the leading stockist of modern commercial furniture all our products are exclusively designed for commercial wear and tear. This is a grade above residential or general furniture manufacturers.

We use the the Martindale test, which is a measure of the durability of a fabric. The tests are undertaken on upholstery fabrics to check their suitability for various uses – i.e. decorative chairs, heavy-traffic areas or commercial furniture. You might know this as the ‘rub test’ and it is designed to account for abrasion resistance on commercial fabric. The Martindale test is just one example of the level of professionalism that we offer to your clients.

Stage 3 – How we Wow your Clients for You

You may also have many clients within a year, all with their own style or requirements. Running around servicing all aspects of each project is an immense job, so we do some of the ‘heavy lifting’ for you. We:

  • Deliver samples directly to your clients
  • Deliver and set up (if required) furniture nationally
  • Will customise any existing piece
  • Create bespoke dining furniture from scratch
  • Vary existing tables, benches or chairs to your specifications

Our Hospitality Manufacturing Capability

We always carry stock from several countries and this years’ schedule includes visits to major global furniture fairs in Milan (Italy) and Birmingham (UK) to source new seasonal stock. While some pieces are best-sellers season in and out, new ranges are always important for Australia’s cutting-edge venues in Melbourne and Sydney.

We favour Australian made and also manufacture bespoke pieces locally and in Asia. Our current range includes native pieces from leading design countries such as Italy, Poland and Turkey and we expect to update and complement our existing stock.

While we carefully choose our pieces and the range of furniture that we supply, we can source or create any designs that you know will suit the hospitality industry. Your imagination is our template.

Your Design and Build Team 

We design, build and stock a comprehensive range of modern commercial furniture, and we only deal with fabricators and suppliers that are able to meet commercial standards.
