A 31-bedroom boutique hotel on the South Coast, the Orchid Hotel offers guests a relaxed and tranquil atmosphere close to the heart of Bournemouth’s town centre.
As part of the hotel’s refurbishment, Atlas Contract Furniture was contacted by the hotel’s interior designer to design banquette seating solutions for the restaurant and lounge bar. The requirement for contemporary seating designs that would complement the boutique hotel’s subtle and stylish decor with a seaside twist, was key in our brief from the client.
What we did
To create a relaxed, grown-up lounge bar for guests to relax in, we used a deep aubergine soft fabric for the curved seating with a square pleated back style. The rich purple banquette seating was paired with various loose seating options in mustard yellows, moody greys and olive greens. Combining textures from soft fabrics and wooden flooring to on-trend metallic finishing’s, the hotel’s bar is every bit ‘boutique’ and stylish.
We needed to maximise the amount of seating available in the hotel’s small restaurant without detracting from its spacious feel. We used a selection of banquette seating styles around the restaurant’s walls in soft sea-blue hues to stick with the modern-seaside theme. At one end of the restaurant, we fitted a bench seat with a square button back design and the other end with a 3 horizontal panelled back. In the centre of the restaurant, we fitted another 3 horizontal panelled back bench seat, this time in a natural tan colour that matched the warm wooden tabletop tones and oak frames around the room.
The Orchid Hotel was delighted with the end results for both the guest lounge bar and hotel restaurant. Both spaces complement the hotel’s overall modern boutique style and provide guests with relaxing social areas to enhance their stay.
