La Bandera – Authentic Spanish Cuisine in Manchester City Centre
In November 2014, Forest Contract were given the fantastic opportunity to supply an array of beautiful, bright furniture pieces; such as bar stools, chairs and a large statement piece to feature in the newly opening restaurant; La Bandera. The leather chosen for the upholstery on this project perfectly matches the vibrant personality of the restaurant, and located in Manchester’s bustling Deansgate area, further reflects the energetic flair of Spanish culture. With being given a lead time of three weeks to fully complete and deliver the order; we were excited to get started and quickly see our designs placed in their new home.
The Francesca side chairs and Kentucky bar stools, the largest part of the order in terms of quantity, were to provide the bulk of seating amongst the restaurant floor area. With style taking priority, both the chairs and bar stools were given bright white or pale wood legs to match the cultural and vibrant of La Bandera. Although contemporary, the buttoned finish on the base of the Francesca chairs provided both comfort and a somewhat vintage aspect to the décor. In turn this added an element of sophistication to the fun and lively appearance of the chairs and overall interior design.

The large 55mm oak veneer table makes quite a statement, placed next to the matching bar area, furnished with tall stools. Keeping in theme with the essence of the room the table is stylishly practical – perfect for a group of friends wanting to socialise over drinks or versatile enough to entertain a casual business meeting. The solid nature of the table makes for the perfect choice for a restaurant, with day to day use a given.
As we produce all of our furniture in the UK, and most of it is made to order, we are able to oversee the entire manufacturing process, during each and every stage. This also enables for a large amount of client insight and interaction – made easier by our Manchester showroom which has clear windows overlooking the factory. As seen in the case of La Bandera, manufacturing furniture in the UK also has the benefit of complete flexibility, so exclusive or clients own fabrics can be used during the upholstery processto upholster furniture.
Chris from our sales team talks of his experience working with the owners of La Bandera “Yashin and Dennis were great guys to work with. From the moment they stepped foot into the showroom, they had a clear vision of what they were looking and I’m really pleased we were able to make that happen and bring their ideas to life. The venue looks fantastic and it’s great to see the finished product in situ. I wish Yashin and Dennis all the best and it was a pleasure doing business with them both.”
