We were delighted to be part of Nandos’ first 100% eco-friendly restaurant, a first for not only the UK but also the planet! Hill Cross Furniture supplied both the fitted and loose furniture. The banquette seating was manufactured using FSC timbers and fillings sourced from locally sourced sheep’s wool and coconut fibres. Loose furniture included chairs from the Load, Luna & Dixie ranges from refurbished stock all upholstered in sustainable fabrics. Table tops were bespoke items and featured a combination of wood, metal and printed designs.
All Fabrics used were made from natural materials such as nettles which are inherently CRIB 5 and leathers were reconstituted or stock remaining from other jobs all wood stains and varnishes were all water based and low VOC. All this helped the Nandos achieve RICS SKA Gold, the highest possible sustainable fit-out rating, creating a blue print for all sustainable restaurants going forward.
