Hospitality interiors specialist Andy Thornton has developed a range of industrial style 'lived in' look furniture ideal for restaurants, hotels and pubs and bars who want to create a vintage look in their venues.

The Urban Vintage collection includes lighting, tables, chairs, sofas, stools, shelving and storage in a mix of materials - from aged leather to distressed denim and reclaimed pine to heavy duty cast iron. All items in the range are designed with heavy-use in mind.

One item key for pubs and bars is the Factory leather bar stool with a hard-wearing tubular steel frame that the manufacturer claims is both lightweight and sturdy.

The frames are finished in a tarnished iron patina and have plastic bungs fitted to the bottom of the legs to protect timber and tiled floors. The upholstered seat and backs are available in a choice of either distressed leather, as shown, or hard-wearing washed denim. They are fixed to the frame with leather loops and rivet-style fixings.

Also included in the range are tables made of reclaimed timber and pendant light fittings. For more bespoke pieces, Andy Thornton will look at designing and manufacturing to order with minimum quantities applying.
