Award-Winning Restaurant and Bar Designs 2018

The Allegory

The results of the 2018 Restaurant and Bar Design Awards are in and we'd like to say a huge congratulations to all 18 of our nominated projects that we had the absolute pleasure of working on.

Here are this year's award winning designs that we supplied furniture to.


1. The Allegory - Fusion Design & Architecture. Winner - London Bar

Colourful interiors with murals of Midcentury Manhattanesque ladies who inject a touch of glamour to the contemporary feel. An exemplary fusion of patterns and textures by Fusion DNA and worthy winner of the Best UK Bar in the Restaurant and Bar Design Awards 2018.

2. The Good Egg - Gundry & Ducker. Winner: UK Fast/Casual

Gundry + Ducker's water blue design for The Good Egg in Soho is off to a cracking start after being shortlisted for the Restaurant and Bar Design Awards in the Fast/Casual category. 

The curvaceous wooden banquettes & wall panelling and pink paint tones make the dark teal shades pop beautifully. Throw in some egg-shaped lights on painted blue steel table tops and you'll soon see why this eggcellent design was a deserving winner.

3. No.29 Power Station West - Box 9 Design. Winner: Best Overall UK Bar

An independent neighbourhood bar and restaurant from the designers of No 197 Chiswick Fire Station which won Best Pub last year. We had the pleasure of doing the outside furniture, but the interior design is also a gem to behold. 

Furniture picks: Michigan Armchair, a wooden chair in the style of the classic early 20th Century Adirondack chairs with modified backrest, painted white with bespoke seat cushions in dark blue Sunbrella.

Design: Box 8 Design

4. The Savill Garden Kitchen - Path Design. Winner: Restaurant or Bar in another space

A glorious heritage design in an iconic building, Path Design have created a warm and welcoming space for people from all walks of life. In their words "A blend of reclaimed and off-the-shelf tables and chairs enhance this melange of new and old, so whether the customer wants a restaurant table for two or eight... or just tea and cake after a walk in the gardens, there is always the perfect spot."

Our furniture can be seen outside The Potting Shed in the third image.

Design: Path Design.
