In the fifteen years that Craftwood have been in business they have become one of the leading specialists of upholstered banquette seating, working with huge brands such as Nando’s, Gourmet Burger Kitchen and many more.



Nando’s, the Afro-Portuguese restaurant is famous for its PERi-PERi chicken and its vibrant restaurant design. Our friends at Craftwood have recently completed three Nando’s projects using Yarwood Leather.

Craftwood have created a wow factor in several Nando’s throughout the UK by using Yarwood’s leather to create striking dining spaces. Craftwood have used different leathers to add individual character to each different restaurant, for instance Tribe Ecru was added to the St James Street branch along with pre-distressed seating in order to increase the African vibe in the restaurant.


Gourmet Burger Kitchen

Gourmet Burger Kitchen is famous for, you guessed it, its amazing burgers! Our friends over at Craftwood have used Yarwood Leather on two recent projects with Gourmet Burger Kitchen.

Our natural, full grain leather Hammersmith was used in Gourmet Burger Kitchen Earls Court, London with the cool Summer shade being chosen for the button backed seating.

Way further up the UK in Gourmet Burger Kitchen Vincent Street, Glasgow, our popular Style range in Bright Orange was used on the booth seating throughout the restaurant.



Galley Restaurant, London


Combining contemporary food with style, Galley Restaurant has recently been opened in Islington, London, by brother and sister team Marcel Grzyb and Oriona Robb.

Installed by our friends at Craftwood, Galley Restaurant prides itself on its design led interior where “open plan elegance meets vintage cool.”


Brasserie Blanc, Bournemouth

Brasserie Blanc Bournemouth is Brasserie Blanc’s first venture with Marriott Hotels, situated within The Marriott Highcliffe, which boasts seaside views and a large outdoor decked area. Craftwood provided seating for the bar and restaurant, “Designed to marry a “chez nous” French home feel with the warm welcoming ambiance of Bournemouth’s most iconic hotel, designers PNW chose Craftwood to realise the seating, using Yarwood Leather’s Mustang Bottle on twin sofa banquettes, the deep button style and earthy tones and “cracked” effect finish of the Mustang complementing the design brief perfectly.”
