Statement from the Contract Furniture Group regarding Covid-19

25th March 2020

To help halt the spread of the Covid-19 virus, the Contract Furniture Group has temporarily suspended its regular manufacturing, delivery and installation services. This action has been taken to protect the health and safety of our own team, our customers' teams, and anyone else we may have otherwise come into contact with at this very difficult time.

If any of our customers do have reason to request our assistance please do not hesistate to get in touch through the usual channels. Despite the current state of 'lockdown', we will still try to help in any way we can. Any and all activity that can be carried out virtually, such as project planning, product selection and costing, will continue via online communications or telephone. We can be reached via;

T: 0115 965 9030
E: info

Please be assured that we are open for business at this difficult time and we will continue to deliver stock if required via our external carriers that are still working through these difficult times. We will update this message if this situation changes.

We will look to resume standard operations as quickly as possible, and will therefore assess the potential to do so after each official update. Hopefully the unprecidented government intervention will have the desired effect of having us all back to work as soon as possible. Until then, from all of us here at the Contract Furniture Group, we hope you remain safe and well.

Project: No. 1 Canal Street Restaurant, Manchester

April 23rd, 2018

Lisa Kettle and Danielle Condron felt that Manchester’s Gay Village was missing a great place to dine within the locale’s thriving nightlife scene – so the successful restauranteurs have stepped up the local food scene with No.1 Canal Street, serving a contemporary take on traditional British flavours.

Couple Lisa and Danielle have been successfully running The Bridge Pub and Dining in Sale before the launch of No.1 Canal Street.

Residing in the former Bandit, Mugger & Thief site, the venue has had a stunning renovation, with walls stripped back to red brick. We were commissioned to create chairs and armchairs and install fitted seating and booths in bold coloured Sunbury Design upholstery.

The pieces we created include Nina Carver chairsDart chairsLille armchairs, rustic reclaimed poser tables and stools, deep button fixed seating in Sunbury Design Aqua Clean range fabric.

The vision for the restaurant was to create a relaxed dining experience, moving into a bit more energy in the evening. Co-owner Lisa said, “Soft furnishings, bright, airy – a real female feel to it compared to what’s been down the canal before. I think that’s the difference; very soft rather than these crazy drink offers. It’s going to step it up a little bit.”
