One of the most recent additions to the Hillier family, since autumn 2019, the Three Legged Cross garden centre has recently opened a new restaurant on their premises. Comprising of mostly wooden furniture with a neutral colour scheme, this restaurant looks fresh and simple but extremely stylish.
A mixture of our popular Cambridge metal cross back chairs, Country chairs and Xavier metal chairs were mixed together in this restaurant to create a mix and match look for something contemporary, but we were consistent with the Weathered Oak wood colour and mixture of Saddle Tan and Saddle Pewter fabrics to keep consistency throughout the scheme. The combination of the mix and match with the co-ordinating seats makes the area look modern and fresh.
The tables chosen for the restaurant were our Milan single and double bases with square and rectangle table tops in Weathered Oak. The metal bases again were firstly chosen due to their durable nature but also because they a modern edge to a traditional design.
In this image you can see the mix and match of colours and designs but also how well it all goes together to create this fresh, contemporary look. For the country chairs, this client opted for the padded back and seat option adding to the comfort and design.
This restaurant also opted for comfortable bench seating which gives their customers another seating option for their customers, something with a little extra comfort and feeling of privacy. These benches are covered in Saddle Tan and Pewter and really do look fantastic.
New in and available for purchase, the Bentwood Fan Back Bar Chair! The twin of the Bentwood fan back dining chair, this bar chair is a classic design dating back to the 19th century. Michael Thonet's revolutionary manufacturing method uses steam to bend the wood into shape, ensuring the chairs are not only stylish but extremely durable. The curved design gives maximum comfort whilst showcasing a vintage chic appearance that will look stunning in any venue!
