With the days ticking down until the second BCFA Open in Dublin will be opening it’s doors, we continue our exhibitor Q&A series…

Celine Mallet

Have you noticed any design trends in your sector that differentiate British design and Irish design?

Although the Irish hospitality sector is booming, we’re seeing a move away from the use of luxury materials and high-end furniture contrasted with industrial-style backdrops to a more sustainable theme, echoing people’s growing desire for a simpler life. Here, like everywhere across the globe, interiors are becoming distinctly fresh, organic and natural. Muted pastels, earthy tones and natural materials, such as wood and marble, are becoming increasingly popular, as are more relaxed seating options to give hotels, bars and restaurants a more homely feel.

Why is the BCFA Open Dublin an unmissable opportunity for you?

 These exhibitions are a unique chance to meet new and existing clients face-to-face and discuss their hospitality interior needs as well as gain crucial feedback on our current range of furniture. It’s also an excellent opportunity to discover what else is happening throughout the industry as well as seek fresh ideas and inspiration for our designers.Forum Executive RangeWhat’s your current bestseller in Ireland?

 Our most popular range in Ireland is Forum, perfect for meeting or work environments, combining timeless style with enduring comfort. Both low and high-back options are available in a variety of colours and materials, and the collection includes a selection of executive chairs.

 What are you most excited about highlighting at the BCFA Open and why?

 We’re excited to showcase Junea – our new multifunctional chair collection that combines exceptional comfort with contemporary style. Designed by Peter Roth, it comes with a choice of six bases and a range of colours, offering superior seating for all spaces, whether hotel bedroom, lounge bar or restaurant. We’re really proud of its flexibility and on-trend design, and think it will continue to prove very popular.
