As experts in manufacturing furniture for care environments, we were very excited to be approached to supply products for one the largest care homes in Southampton, Potters Court. With the build completed in spring 2021, it was the perfect chance to showcase some of our newest collections and innovative designs.
Alex Salway of Daring Designs was appointed as the designer for this project and worked alongside us to create an environment that would allow residents to feel not only comfortable but at home. Identifying the best pieces to do this, we provided all the furniture to ensure that every room had seating which promoted a calm and comforting feel.
The 83-room building features private areas for residents to recharge and relax, as well as dining and communal areas. The state-of-the-art facility is complete with breakout areas on each floor, providing an open space for residents to socialise. Alex decided to furnish the room with our award-winning Cubitt club chairs, a versatile range suitable for a variety of environments. Populating the breakout rooms are the Harvey pedestal tables, offering residents a space to enjoy a coffee with friends, read or work on a project or hobby.
Potters Court also features a main lounge area – a large, flexible space with a mix of seating, ranging in styles and sizes including the gorgeous Lucia and Sorrento ranges, instantly inviting residents and guests in with an elegant feel. The entrance to the residents’ block is also furnished with Sorrento swivel chairs, featuring bespoke safety modifications for Potters Court, useful for disabled residents with limited mobility.
Throughout the home, it was agreed a neutral colour palette would work best, with toned down hues featuring a splash of neon. Giving the building a mature, premium feel, the neon hints offer a fun twist here and there to put a smile on the face of its residents and staff.
We loved working with Alex to create the perfect interior setting at Potters Court, check out our other case studies here to see how we’ve kitted out other facilities…
