New this month from Design & Contract Interiors is the Hippy collection of upholstered chairs for upmarket restaurants and hotel interiors.

Designed by Emilio Nanni and brought to life by the established Italian manufacturer Billiani, the new Hippy range follows on from the success of the company’s Croissant collection, now widely adopted in the retail leisure market for its sleek contemporary look and its beautifully detailed upholstery. 

The Hippy chairs have a modern style with superbly proportioned upholstery finished with subtle stitch work for an elegant form.  This stylish collection of quality seating is available as a dining chair, a bar stool and a lounge chair.  With a wide range of fabrics available and a choice of either stained or lacquered solid beech frames or lacquered metal frames, there is a combination to suit any interior design that requires an up-to-date, stylish and comfortable look.

Established for over a century, Billiani has a deep understanding of combining fabrics, woods and metals to create attractive seating for ever-changing lifestyles.

Design & Contracts Interiors has over 27 years’ experience in the manufacture, sourcing and supply of leisure refurbishment for cafes, restaurants, hotels, pubs, night clubs, bars and office break out areas.  The company team works closely with designers and clients to provide bespoke furniture solutions for all interior settings.
