Launch of Lucy and Sierra Extreme collections
Following significant demand from existing and potential customers, Knightsbridge Furniture is set to expand its Extreme furniture collection.
The Extreme range, which has been designed specifically for challenging environments, will be boosted by the additions of Extreme Lucy and Sierra settees and chairs, improving choice for care homes and hospitals across the country.
Made in accordance with the company’s Extreme specification, which includes the provision of reinforced frames, hidden staples and feet with security fittings, the collection will be enhanced by the additions of the Lucy Armchair Extreme, Lucy Two-Seat Settee Extreme, Lucy Three-Seat Settee Extreme, Sierra Armless Chair Extreme and Sierra Armchair Extreme.
Furniture from the Lucy Extreme range also includes removable seat cushions to ensure users cannot easily store foreign bodies and contraband between and underneath them.
Jason Brown, head of design and development at Knightsbridge Furniture, said: “Following positive feedback from a number of customers, we’ve been able to grow our collection of Extreme furniture to better meet the needs and requirements of the healthcare furniture market. The new additions include the necessary practical features needed for use in challenging environments, including safety, durability and ease of cleaning, but have been made with a less institutional appearance.
“We understand that some patients try to hide things down the sides of settees and chairs so our new Lucy Extreme collection comes with removable cushions. This option also means the cushions are easily replaceable, minimising the risk of having to upholster the entire item if it gets damaged.”
