Furniture Fusion visits Manchester’s Hotel Indigo

One of the UK’s leading contract furniture firm Furniture Fusion has unveiled the results of its contract to supply furniture, much of it bespoke, to the acclaimed new Hotel Indigo in Manchester’s Northern Quarter.

“We were delighted to be chosen by 3D Reid to work on the Hotel Indigo project.  It’s a high-profile launch that has breathed new life into a long-empty listed building in what’s now a really buzzy part of town.”  – Sam Samuels, Managing Director at Furniture Fusion.

“The Northern Quarter is a creative, vibrant area with deep roots in music, culture and design – all strong influences for Furniture Fusion. We loved creating the bespoke pieces to fit 3D Reid’s interior design concept and think the end result looks great” – Sam Samuels, Managing Director at Furniture Fusion.

The landmark 14-storey hotel has launched following a £30m development project, in a prime location opposite the city’s Victoria Station.  Part refurbishment and part new-build, the design by architects 3D Reid incorporates the grade-two listed City Buildings and a brand new building, giving a total of 187 bedrooms plus a 120-cover restaurant, Mamucium.

We’ve worked with Furniture Fusion many times over the last few years, so knew that on a project of this size and profile, their range of product, pricing and ability to deliver without fuss made them the right choice.” – Scott Torrance, Associated Director of Interior Design at 3D Reid.

Furniture Fusion has supplied furniture throughout the property, from marble side tables and upholstered chairs in the bedrooms to bar stools, bespoke dining tables, dining chairs and high tables in the restaurant.

“Furniture Fusion went the extra mile in supplying alternatives to come in at the client budget yet with no drop in quality, and met all deadlines that were thrown at them on this project, including sourcing additional items with only a week or so left before opening!” – Scott Torrance, Associated Director of Interior Design at 3D Reid.

All loose furniture for the bedrooms, suites, lobby, bar and restaurant were supplied by Furniture Fusion, as part of 3D Reid’s interior design, which blends the contemporary with the city’s Victorian and industrial past.  Several bespoke pieces have been created for Hotel Indigo, including plush velvet wing lounge chairs and sleek lobby leather sofas to set a stylish note on arrival.
