Wagstaff opens Umbrella up for A&D one-stop procurement needs

An innovative, new service providing loose furniture solutions tailored specifically to support the architectural and design community has launched in Clerkenwell, London.

Umbrella Furniture is a one-stop furniture procurement specialist run by a multi-disciplined team of project managers and designers offering extensive experience and knowledge of furniture for the office, higher education, hotel and leisure design sectors.

“We’re essentially providing design practices with an out-sourced furniture specialism managing every aspect of a complex FF and E requirement,” explains team leader Nick Shann. “We’re also a zero-risk partner for clients to work with.

“As a subsidiary of the Wagstaff Group, we enjoy tremendous financial and logistics support as well as access to well-known and some of the not so well-known brands and products from across the globe to deliver a multi-product supply service from design brief to installation,” he adds.

The Umbrella service is highly comprehensive, spanning project meeting attendance, global market sourcing, organising showroom visits for product review, tender documentation process support, tender outcome reporting (on open-book basis), user trial arranging, provision of fully-costed FF&E schedules with product data sheets for selected products.

Additional to these, Umbrella provides design clients related support including all full SKA rating, carbon footprint data, BIM information on all specified products and undertake CPD seminars both in-practice or at its parent company’s London showroom.

“Ultimately, Umbrella provides a safe haven for creative professionals who simply want to work on their projects in a confidential, collaborative way without the ‘fuss and hassle’ that can be associated with dealing with the furniture industry,” Nick Shann sums up.

“We provide a single point of contact to work should-to-shoulder with designer clients through all stages of a project and evolve appropriate solutions across all aspects of a scheme.”
