Supplying furniture for a school’s art gallery and dining area can be a challenging task, as it requires a balance between functionality, durability, and aesthetic appeal. The school wanted to create a new calm yet modern art gallery and extended dining room space.
The stylish black and white chairs pair well with the bistro tables of the same colour. With both low and high seating options, this truly creates a warm and inviting environment for both staff and students to enjoy their lunch and the amazing art work on display.
Here are some factors to consider when selecting furniture for the area:
- Comfort: The primary function of area furniture’s is to not only provide a comfortable place to sit and eat. Chairs and tables were designed to be ergonomic and be easy to adjust to different heights.
- Durability: The furniture in the area will be subjected to a lot of wear and tear. We looked and agreed for furniture made from sturdy materials that can withstand daily use.
- Cleaning: Dining areas can be messy, so furniture should be easy to clean and sanitize. Materials such as plastic, metal, and vinyl are ideal for dining area furniture as they are easy to wipe down.
- Style: While functionality is important, the dining area aspect should also be visually appealing to double as its art gallery. We chose furniture that complements the overall design of the space and reflects the school’s style. The colour of furniture should complement the artwork on display. Neutral colours such as white, black, or grey are often used in art galleries to create a backdrop that allows the artwork to stand out.
In conclusion, selecting furniture for a school’s art gallery and dining area requires careful consideration of functionality, durability, and aesthetic appeal. By keeping these factors in mind, you can create a space that is both practical and visually appealing.
