You may have heard, in previous weeks, about our collaboration with Tinsley Wood Interior Design– first on an outside venue, The Secret Garden (pictured to the left), and then on an exciting new project for which Metal Design Furniture designed and produced special decorative pieces.

We will have more information about the second project soon – keep your eye out! – But until then, we’d like to bring another update, this time from designer Sam Tinsley-Wood herself!

The interior designer has recently posted a review on Metal Design Furniture’s Facebook page. “I have worked with Metal Design Furniture on two commercial projects now where timescales were tight,” she explains, and goes on to say, “Metal Design Furniture delivers exactly what it promises and its attention to detail and perfectionism is exemplary.”

We are so pleased by her positive review – and it has been a delight and a pleasure to work with her too!

Collaboration Series Part II: Metal Design Furniture In A Second Exciting Project…

A few weeks ago, we heard about Metal Design Furniture’s beautiful collaboration with interior designer Sam Tinsley Wood to produce a gorgeous outside venue – The Secret Garden – in Rochdale, Lancashire (for a reminder, click here for the full post).

But our collaboration doesn’t end here! Metal Design Furniture is now working on a second exciting project with Tinsley Wood Interior Design, this time in the restaurant and wine shop Cenetta.

A glimpse of our exciting new project

Though the project is still currently a work in progress, we can share some exclusive new details about Metal Design Furniture’s part in the plan and give you a taste of our work.

 Cenetta’s design idea is unique – it is decorated as a striking, venerable old church. Designer Tinsley Wood envisioned antique forged effect panels as decorative details for pillars – and we provided, pictured to the right.

 The pieces were created through sanding the laser-cut pieces with a special procedure to achieve the perfect rustic effect.

We hotly anticipate seeing the finished result – they will undoubtedly look magnificent! If you would like to see the end product, too, look out for more updates on this project, due in the near future.

Metal Design Furniture Sponsors Triathletes

It’s a great time for British sport right now in summer 2013, with our man Andy Murray having just become the first UK Wimbledon champion since Virgina Wade in 1977. Here at Metal Design Furniture, we love a bit of health and fitness… so what better way to show our appreciation for athletes everywhere than to sponsor two brave triathletes in the Virgin Active London Triathlon?

James Vallerine (left), a language centre administrator and Avi Reisman (right), an IT manager, are both based in London and ready to take on the challenge. The race takes place on July 28th and involves three elements: swimming, cycling and running. As you can see from the photo, our boys are all kitted out and ready to swim, even if the British weather stops behaving itself.

The swimming element is 1,500 meters and takes place in the chilly Thames, so those wet suits will come in very handy, boys! Our athletes then have to cycle for 40km and finally run to the finish line for another 10km. They will be proudly wearing Metal Design Furniture at they complete the epic race… and we’ll be waiting to cheer them on at the end. Good luck, fellas!

 

 

 

Three New Metal Design Furniture Gazebos for Grim’s Dyke Hotel

Keen followers of our blog may remember that the beautiful Grim’s Dyke Hotel, located just 12 miles outside of London, is a one of our most glamorous customers. Guests at the hotel can already relax in the shade created by our elegant Romano gazebos or enjoy some outside dining at one of our stylish Oliver sets of chairs and tables.

Our furniture has been such a hit at the hotel that the owners have come back for more, buying three new gorgeous gazebos from our collection. Holiday makers can start their days off just right with breakfast under the gazebos pictured to the right, taking in the lush lawns and rolling countryside surrounding the hotel.

Weary travellers arriving later on at the hotel might enjoy putting their feet up and drinking a cold gin and tonic beneath the gazebo pictured below. Whatever your purpose at the Grim’s Dyke Hotel, we can make sure that you’re as comfortable as kings during your stay.

Grim’s Dyke hotel offer guests a countryside retreat from hectic city life.  The accommodation is fabulous; four-poster beds and luxury en-suites, designed to reflect the period of the building. Gillbert’s Restaurant, serving modern British food, is also open to non-residents for lunch, dinner and cream teas.
