Since launching a London showroom in May 2014, Morgan has established itself at the heart of Clerkenwell. The showroom is a versatile gallery for Morgan’s eye-catching designs with 2500ft² of office and display space, including a mezzanine level with views down onto the main showroom floor.
One of Morgan’s latest designs, the Paris Collection, can be viewed in the showroom. The collection combines classically-inspired silhouettes with striking timber detailing. The collection consists of three dining or meeting chairs with the same fully upholstered seat but different back treatment.
A traditional wave-shaped top edge, a handle-shaped show wood top detail and a large curved back give each of the three chairs a different distinctive character. All pieces in the collection offer a generous sit with a fully webbed frame which is manufactured from solid beech as standard, and can be made in walnut or oak species on request. Paris has a classic contemporary feel that is ideal for boutique hotels and restaurants.
The Lucca side chair is perfect for informal dining. It has a modern and versatile design with a fully-upholstered seat, featuring a continuous piping detail which accentuates the profile and looks particularly striking in a contrasting colour. The seat appears to float on an elegant show wood base either in solid oak or a black painted finish.
Original design is pivotal to Morgan’s success, led by design director, Katerina McMahon. Morgan has received a total of six Design Guild Marks with the latest two awarded in 2014 for the Brompton and Pimlico original seating collections.
Brompton offers classic 5 star style and utilises Morgan’s expertise in fine upholstery and beautiful timber detailing. Finely-tailored square upholstery with a fitted seat cushion is combined with an elegant profiled walnut frame. The Pimlico compact lounge chair features smooth curved lines with a unique inset oval seat pad which is wrapped by the frame.
