Silvercrest Care Home Group has brought an extra dash of comfort and style to four Welsh properties.
The group commissioned designer Angela Gidden MBE creative director of accentu8 to create a range of chairs for each of the homes.
“Just because our residents are older or have different needs doesn’t mean they don’t care about style, said Bikram Choudhary, director of Silvercrest Care Group.
“We want our homes to be welcoming and inviting places for both residents and their friends and families.
“What we love about accentu8 is that their ranges of both rise and recline chairs and static furniture embraces independent living and modern healthcare designs expressed through colour, texture and functionality.
“We wanted to establish something really unique which set our care homes apart from others and we believe the accentu8 represents our ethos and brand.
“Each of our homes have their logos in their own unique colour to give them their own identity to represent their home so accentu8’s fresh vibrant colours and the quality of design was the perfect fit for the Silvercrest Group.”
Angela Gidden added: “Silvercrest care homes were keen for us to produce high back armchairs and sofas for four of their properties using healthcare fabrics. Each home is represented by a different colour so it was important to keep to the colour scheme.
“We decided the Halcyon collection, from fabric manufacturers Camira, was the perfect fit for the finish and quality SilverCrest wanted in addition the retro motif reflects the Silvercrest brand.
“The lotus furniture was styled in slim-line and compact form, with a classic 1960s modernist and Scandinavian feel and integrates the healthcare and hospitality applications with a range of fabrics and colours.”
