New chair design

Master upholsterer and furniture maker Crowther & Sons has strengthened its contract furniture collection for residential care and challenging environments with the launch of the innovative Hatton chair.

Specially designed by Crowther & Sons for care environments where challenging behaviours mean that conventional furniture lacks the durability and safety features required, the Hatton is hand built in the company’s Lincolnshire workshop by a team of highly skilled furniture makers and upholsterers. It features a rugged, heavy hardwood frame and lockable seat ensuring it is both secure and tamper-proof. 

The Hatton is available in a wide range of colours to co-ordinate with existing interior schemes in easy-to-clean, liquid resistant specialist fabrics so daily and scheduled hygiene and infection control is easily facilitated. The modular seat can be lifted out when unlocked for easy cleaning and the lipped edge on the undersides ensures any liquid spills run away from the chair.

“We have worked closely with clients over many years in the specialist residential care home market and have now responded to increasing demand for a high quality, heavy weight, tamper proof chair that is easy to clean yet provides comfort, an element of fun and design aesthetic with added durability and safety,” comments Edward Crowther.
