What makes a space feel good? It’s a principle that guides us in every piece we design. Thinking beyond the curves of a chair or the grain of its wood, we see furniture as part of a bigger story, characters in a visual narrative.
So what stories do the most welcoming spaces tell? How do they invite us in, envelop us, and encourage us to stay a while longer than we’d expected? Hospitality interiors demand not only dexterity in design but also a deep understanding of how furniture occupies space and how our bodies move within it.
Our experience in this landscape has shown us the ebbs and flows of trends and how changes in our clients – and their clients’ lifestyles have created an exciting and challenging state of flux.
Offices, hotels, restaurants, and banks all existed to serve very clear purposes, housing solutions for very clear needs. But shifts in the way we experience the world have encouraged the stories of these spaces to transform, to evolve their narrative.
Hotels have outgrown their roles as temporary temples of rest for their guests, now inviting the outside world to work from their lobbies and bars. Offices flourish from purely practical workplaces, to embracing comfort and flexibility, fulfilling the visual, emotional and rational needs of a more nomadic workforce. Collections such as our Bilbao range embody this spirit beautifully, evoking a retreat-like atmosphere in commercial spaces.
So it is our role, as furniture designers, to understand this expansion. To support it and embrace the multiplicity of visual tales, encouraging new ways of designing and working with our clients. To imbue the pieces we create, with a bigger purpose. The Kyoto collection is a striking example of how we challenge our thinking – taking inspiration from Japanese gardens, it was designed to bring a delicate asymmetry to modular seating systems within commercial settings, empowering our clients to create a variety of stylish seating compositions.
Our background in hospitality interior design and leadership guided by our Creative Director’s architectural eye, allow us to interpret this new interiors’ landscape with more than just the outlook of craftspeople.
It frees us to collaborate with our clients in ways that are unique. We combine our understanding of ergonomics with the sensorial knowledge of luxury and comfort, as well as having access to an exclusive library of hundreds of fabric collections, which are accessible to us through carefully nurtured, long standing relationships with our trusted suppliers. This offers an unparalleled depth and richness to creative upholstery, piping and textural detail.
These close client collaborations bring dynamism to our interpretations of comfort and space and a malleability to interpret design briefs with a uniquely ‘Morgan’ vision.
“Our primary objective when working with our clients is to support them in meeting their design needs and challenges. Time and care is taken to understand their vision and ambitions. This partnership allows us to tailor our proposals with clarity and understanding, helping them fulfil briefs in ways that feel personalised to their individual projects. ” Daphne McMahon, Sales Director
Alongside our experience and creative consciousness sits our deep respect for sustainable furniture. Since our inception, our understanding of materials, consideration to sourcing and eye for design-longevity have guided us to create pieces that will live longer and work harder, ensuring their design conscience never outweighs their environmental conscience.To us, sustainability isn’t a footnote, it sits at the core of our craftsmanship.
The combination of our eye for craft, devotion to design, insightful spatial awareness and architectural sensibilities allow us to work with interior designers, as more than just furniture creators. We are storytellers, exploring and fine-tuning the narratives of high-end hospitality spaces.
We would love to hear what stories your spaces tell. How the visual narratives of your clients’ projects have evolved. We invite you to share your vision and get in touch to find out how we can collaborate, to reimagine visual hospitality interiors’ stories together.
Every piece we create is carefully designed to confidently stand alone or to sit in harmony with all our furniture collections. For more details or to book a showroom appointment, please get in touch with our design-led sales team today at email@example.com.
