From design to installation: How is bespoke seating made?

If you’re thinking of investing in bespoke seating, you might be wondering what the manufacturing process involves.

Craftwood is a leading manufacturer of bespoke seating in the UK and across the world. Here, we explore Craftwood’s bespoke seating process from initial design to installation.

Initial consultation

The bespoke seating process begins with an initial meeting. Our sales team will be able to provide a quote for your project after understanding your requirements. When the project gets the go-ahead, you’ll be assigned a dedicated project manager. With your project manager, you’ll discuss all requirements and assess the scope of the project. Everything from design to installation and post installation will be covered, including estimations of cost and scheduling of work.

Planning & design phase

When the project details have been agreed with your dedicated manager, the planning and design phase can begin. The design team will create designs for your seating using innovative computer-aided software. Working closely with your project manager and the production team, your vision will be brought to life.

All furniture is made to measure, so we’ll need precise measurements of your premises to make sure your seating fits perfectly. We offer a site survey service if required.

There are limitless design possibilities for your seating. During this stage, you’ll be able to choose everything from fabric and wood type to leg style and stitch type.

Seating manufacture

When the designs have been perfected and approved by you, the manufacturing process will commence. Our highly skilled production team use a range of industry-leading equipment to produce our bespoke furniture, including a CNC machine and specialist hand tools.

Seating installation

On installation day, our team of CSCS-certified site fitters will deliver your new, fully constructed furniture in our branded vans. They will then install the seating exactly to your specifications. It’s our aim to impinge as little as possible on our clients’ businesses and operations, so we will arrange an installation day and time to minimise disruption to your venue’s operations.

If you’d prefer to install the seating yourself, we will have it ready for you to collect on a pre-arranged day.
