From dingy dining hall to attractive cafeteria - stylish furniture makes the difference

As a family run firm that provides furniture to many schools around the country, we've been doubly interested to see the recent launch of the School Food Plan which identifies and recommends on the issues that face schools in persuading more children to take up school meals and keep this valuable service viable.  

They have spotted that children care about good food, social life, price and brand (school meals must be "cool") - and, of course, having an attractive environment to eat in. Those of us of an age to remember the cabbage-scented dining halls of yesteryear can only agree with them.

The Plan says that the area where children eats needs to be attractive, clean and light and we believe that the right furniture can help provide this whilst being robust, easy to store and move, and easy to clean as well as reflecting your school's brand colours.

Here are some of our recommendations to help your school dining hall compete with a packed lunch or the local caff.


Transparent chairs in juicy colours create a light and airy atmosphere.  


Indoor-outdoor furniture helps you make the use of outdoor space in warmer weather. 

Stackable chairs make your dining space more flexible.

Spacious tables mean you can use the space for more than just meal times. 


Or informal cafeteria style tables and seating. 



Create a more informal eating area with bar stools.
