Case Study

GBK Richmond


REF: 14-1132

The Brief

When MBDS contacted Craftwood to discuss the manufacture and installation of banquette seating for Gourmet Burger Kitchen Richmond we already knew the high standards that were expected. With Craftwood having worked alongside other designers on various GBK projects previously we had the insight and expertise to help make the required seating not only stunning visually but practical too.

The Solution

GBK Richmond is a contemporary styled restaurant with rustic overtones. After several changes to the initial design it was decided that to fit in with the free standing furniture, the banquettes would have timber legs with matching timber show rails for added effect.


Fluted style back banquette upholstered in leather. The fluted back style was chosen and upholstered in Rimini Caramel leather, which of course as with all our leathers/fabrics meets the Crib 5 requirements for inflammability. Other banquettes Craftwood manufactured for GBK Richmond have the seating upholstered in leather with a double front border on solid oak underframes with tapered oak legs and fabric float button style backs. The leather for the seating is Crest Old English Tan and the fabric for the backs is Sekers Kiki Turquoise.

With the different seating styles, textures and colours this restaurant really comes into its own in creating a unique dining experience with an eclectic mix of classy yet practical furniture. It is yet another example of Craftwood helping to create the right product with the right look to compliment and enhance its surroundings.
