Recreating a Georgian style tea room

Our brief was to recreate a Georgian style tearoom for the Antique Storehouse in Portsmouth's Royal Dockyard, with a modern twist. 

Ensuring the furniture looked and felt authentic but needed to be sturdy, modern and guaranteed to last the course for this busy tea room.

DeFrae's Annabelle side chairs look and feel ensured that seating arrangement felt in tone for the storehouse’s retro theme.  The Annabelle’s have been upholstered in classic fabrics from Sunbury Design including Eno Calvados, Eno Gondola, Adelphi Vermont and Adelphi Priory to recreate a classic Georgian style environment. 

Our Denver table bases and bespoke tabletops have been designed to work with the uneven wooden floors to ensure an authentic feel.  Its paramount that the tables remained robust with adjustable feet to work with the floorboards.

“Thank you, it does look splendid” – a nice quote from our clients.

Newcastle's new Quayside Cocktail Bar, Tiger Hornsby

Situated on the site of the renowned Julie's nightclub, Tiger Hornsby is a luxurious new Cocktail bar in Newcastle's famous Quayside district.

Newcastle’s Quayside is currently going through a bit of a renaissance. Popolo’s, formerly on Pilgrim Street, is set to neighbour Tiger Hornsby, and Ladhar Leisure have already opened Hop & Cleaver on the site of former pub Offshore 44.

Tiger Hornsby has been inspired by the Grade-II listed building’s late Georgian and early Victorian heritage and it was paramount that DeFrae worked closely with the client to ensure the theme ran throughout the decor.

Our Lincoln bar stools have been upholstered in the wonderful Mulberry Flying Ducks fabric which has been treated to sustain heavy use of a busy bar environment to all UK fire and safety regulations.

The Mulberry Flying Ducks fabric has been paired with Herringbone Tan and Gold Honeycomb Velvet to give a very sumptuous and luxurious feel across the bar area. 

 Our bar height Spot flip top tables complement the Lincoln bar stools.  The Spot is an uber contemporary table that enables easy storage and space for diners / drinkers to converse naturally in close company making it ideal for this cocktail bar environment.

Kartell's Masters Chairs designed by Philippe Starck complete the look in white, mustard and grey.  The Masters is a tribute to three iconic chairs of the past, the Series 7, the Tulip Armchair and the Eames Eiffel Chair.  Find out more about our Masters Chairs here  

Finally our gorgeous black  Liberty table bases with bespoke tabletops help keep in tone with the Georgian / early Victorian theme of Tiger Hornsby.
