Knightsbridge Furniture has provided a selection of care home furniture to the remarkable Broughton House, a veteran care village in Salford, North West of England, which was founded in 1916.
Gilling Dodd was the appointed architect for the project and worked alongside a team to carry out the interior design of the facility. Knightsbridge Furniture was chosen through Gilling Dodd due to its outstanding reputation, high-quality product range and innovative designs.
John Roughton, an independent furniture consultant who represents Knightsbridge Furniture worked very closely with the interiors team from Gilling Dodd, to ensure that Knightsbridge could meet the client’s needs and requirements. The colours and tones within the scheme were coordinated by Georgie Fearnehad, utilising warm colours in shared spaces, blue hues in reception rooms and neutral tones in bedroom and living areas.
With regards to the overall scheme, the care unit at the village was designed with the residents in mind. Featuring classic bedroom furniture, the scheme was populated with our Emily Grande Wing Chair, providing excellent levels of comfort whilst maintaining a traditional feel. Ultimately, as a team, Knightsbridge wanted to create a space in which residents could keep as much of their independence as possible, and our furniture not only looks great, but is made with its users in mind. Featuring removable cushions to make for easy cleaning, adjustable over-bed tables with automatic safety locks and our own ergonomic standards, our products will really make a difference to the residents at Broughton House.
The team at Knightsbridge Furniture believes that including the tenants in the design process is hugely important, as the furniture needs to be right for them. Taking the mobile showroom up to the care village allowed the client and the residents to view the furniture. The show truck was a huge bonus for the client as they were able to view and test the pieces before making a final decision. The Jenny and Lucia ranges really stood out to the team and when used within the scheme created a homely and traditional feel to the care village.
The installation and design process for Broughton House was a huge success and we are looking forward to completing phase two of the project in the coming months.
