Shackletons Furniture offers respite


Seating helps create a contemporary look at purpose-built care centre in Guildford

Shackletons have been chosen by design consultant, Three Percent, to assist with creating a contemporary look at the Geoghegan Group's purpose-built care centre in Guildford.

Specialising in respite care, Three Percent was looking to create a contemporary environment that would provide a comforting feeling for orthopaedic rehabilitation away from the domestic confines of patients' homes.

Tommy Cairns, designer and project manager, said: "It's incredibly reassuring to know you are working with team that understands the technicalities of furnishing a care environment - it isn't just about making things look pretty."

The Clavadel is a purpose-built short-stay care centre specialising in post-operative, rehabilitation and convalescent care. It caters for all types of orthopaedic rehabilitation, with a special expertise in post-operative knee and hip replacement.

As part of the contract, Shackletons provided seating throughout the facility, specifying the right seat heights, foam density,and fabric treatments to support the centre's services and clients. Sign up for your free email newsletter
