High-end partner-led project in Central London receives commendation

A recently completed partner-led project, which involved the relocation of the business’ workplace from its established home in the St Paul’s area of London to Victoria has gained high commendation from the client.

The high-end brief, which was led by the partners of the business, demonstrated significant investment to achieve a discerning and quality finish, providing the team with a first-class workplace experience.

Selected by the project team led by the client, together with Project Managers Gerald Eve, to provide furniture consultancy, Jon Odey, Managing Director of furniture forum “excelled himself”, according to the client. Jon and the team at furniture forum were selected as the chosen supplier as they had great access to leading furniture suppliers and the client has praised furniture forum for their efforts on delivering over 80 pieces of bespoke, high-end design furniture.

The client, who explains that they had a distinguished eye for “forensic level detail”, recognised that “furniture was such a major component of an office”. They understood this was integral to the overall design and invested to ensure the finished workspace met with stakeholder expectations.

The partner-led approach required Jon and his team to be very hands on throughout the project, starting from the initial design stage at the outset of the office relocation. Jon seamlessly integrated with the initial professional team which included the PMs, an architect, M&E and AV consultants. He provided considered pricing and furniture options, allowing the clients to make informed choices, both in the early design and planning stages and throughout the project. During the planning, the client comments that “Jon was very responsive to feedback and evolved his proposals in line with our design.” The considered approach continued as the project team appointed a main contractor and interior design team as well as an acoustician.

During the design phase, Jon spent time with the clients, both at their existing offices and by inviting them to visit a number of furniture showrooms – providing them with tangible examples and inspiration. Recognising the benefits of his approach, the clients explains that “Jon got a feel for our existing space and the quality we required”.

During the project, the client evolved the design, which required all contractors and suppliers to react accordingly. The client explains that “Jon was quick to adapt and worked hard with manufacturers to meet lead times”. One of the major changes to the design was to address issues with the acoustics in the building. furniture forum worked with the designers and adapted the necessary areas, using furniture to create zones.

Commenting on the completed project, the client exclaims that the office has “the wow factor”. It has staff breakout areas with furniture that “defines the space”. One of the clients’ objectives was to give something back to their staff and they believe that the result of this design has certainly achieved that, and they explain that they’ve had “lots of compliments” from colleagues.

An element of furniture forum’s service which impressed the client was their encouragement to re-use existing furniture, where possible. The client comments that “by following Jon’s recommendations and re-using some of the furniture, we saved £75,000”. This saving enabled the client to invest in other pieces of furniture and stay within budget.

The client also praised the furniture forum team for their logistical support – managing the removal and disposal of old furniture and moving the new furniture into the new workplace.

In a final statement, the client says: “we would definitely recommend Jon Odey and the furniture forum team”.

Our Values - Be Brave | Commit | Be Fair | Enjoy It

For Curve Workplaces and furniture forum, 2020 represented a year of great change and transition. Both businesses achieved significant growth, despite the challenges brought about by the global pandemic. Operating in line with COVID-19 restrictions provided a catalyst to bring about the transition to remote working – a change for both our day-to-day business operations and the way in which we work with our clients, suppliers and partners. Addressing both the challenges and the developments within the businesses, we have committed to a set of values, which we believe underpin the essence of what we do and who we are.

Be Brave

We ask all our people to be brave as we go into 2021. To look forward and invest in the future. Each day we are confronted with challenging situations and we encourage and empower our teams to make brave decisions in order to face these. This might mean being brave and speaking out, even if that means having a controversial conversation or questioning how or why. As a business, we want to encourage and nurture this value, both within the team and across all our working relationships.


We value commitment as a core attribute of our business. This might be demonstrated through the commitment to the decisions being made, through the steadfast dedication of the team to deliver on projects or the absolute levels of commitment we have to our clients, people, suppliers and partners.

Be Fair

Fairness, decency and professionalism are at the heart of what we do. They are the key to the successful and loyal relationships we have with our teams, our clients and everyone we work with in our supply chain. We ask our teams to approach everything they do with bravery, commitment and fairness and in return, we are dedicated to reciprocating these values.

Enjoy it

We love what we do and how we do it. Enjoying it is an important part of the success of the business. Both Curve Workplaces and furniture forum are owner-led, which results in true passion for the businesses, the clients and the projects; being driven by the leadership and nurtured throughout the team. We believe in our people, our clients and everyone we work with, and being able to enjoy what we do makes everything so rewarding.

Golf Day - Summer 2020

Here’s a quick flashback to this years ‘Covid conscious’ Golf Day, which took place once restrictions had relaxed to the extent whereby fourballs could play.

Director, Mark Bradburn commented, “Whilst it would have been easier to cancel this year’s event (normally held over the summer), we felt that it was important to give people something to look forward to. Furthermore, it was also a chance to show our continued support to a local golf club, after what had been a difficult summer.”

Whilst it may not have been as as sociable as previous years’ events, with all fourballs remaining in their groups throughout the day, staggered tee times to avoid grouping and winners being announced via email after the event, the Golf Day was blessed with great weather.

Awards presented: Nearest the Pin - Stephen Holt from Haslams Chartered Surveyors

Longest Drive - Sim Khatkar from COREP

Team award - Team 3 Michael Potter - Curve Workplaces Ltd Sim Khatkar - COREP Jack Pugh - Savills Tom Barton - VSL and Partners
