2012: ANOTHER YEAR, CONTINUING CHALLENGES, NEW OPPORTUNITIESIt was generally agreed that 2011 was a poor year for the furniture trade. Retail seemed to suffer whilst the Contract sector stalled and major projects were routinely shelved.
We believe 2012 however will mark the turning point. At Chart Interiors, we are hugely encouraged by the resilience and seemingly boundless enthusiasm of our clients and partners.
For 2012 we will be concentrating on our public area seating as we are better placed now than ever before with the broadest portfolio we have been able to offer covering tip up lecture theatre seating, fixed concourse and waiting area seating seating, metal seating and all free standing chairs to complement these ranges. Visit our dedicated website at www.chartareaseating.com for more information on these ranges
Our excitement is also renewed regarding Pierantonio Bonacina who's offering has significantly expanded as a result of the collaboration of Architect/Designer
Piero Lissoni. Lissoni has brought to us outdoor furniture at last with a flair and
style not historically associated with this area of furniture. Pallet, Stave and Maine genuinely offer the possibility to turn outdoor spaces into additional living spaces with no compromise on style or comfort. These ranges utilise advances in technology to offer imaginative water tolerant fabrics covering a foam which has been specifically designed to reject any water build up and avoids the mildew that was the greatest problem in the past.
The outdoor sofas, produced in Iroko but with soft upholstery are perfect for patio, decked areas and elegant outdoor spaces which can now offer the same degree of comfort as the inside areas.
Look at the new Ellipses programme which will provide the capability of snaking across open areas in many configurations and allow designers the freedom to create a unique
presentation. Piero Lissoni will continue to bring his unique genius to create further programmes for Bonacina and has the freedom to use all of the handwork skills that
exist within the factory.

We look forward to speaking with you soon and wish you a positive and productive 2012.Michael Piggott
