The Flower Bowl in Preston, Lancashire is a new mixed leisure destination that is home to Lyndon’s luxurious handcrafted and bespoke seating solutions specified throughout the venue’s cinema and bowling alley.
The Flower Bowl has a cinema with three screens showing a variety of classic films, recent release and live events. The design theme of each screen centres around a leading movie actress and flower. To emulate this and create an intimate and sophisticated viewing experience, each screen is adorned with Lyndon’s plush two-seater sofas and armchairs that are finished in velvets and patterned fabrics.
Whilst the Elizabeth Taylor screen showcases a rich midnight blue theme, matching a clematis ‘Rhapsody’ flower, the Ingrid Bergman smoulders in deep plum befitting a cosmos ‘Spellbound’. The Uma Thurman screen has a fiery orange look corresponding to a dahlia ‘Pulp Fiction’ flower.
Offering space and comfort, each sofa and armchair incorporates an oak side table, whilst complementary bespoke footstools in the same fabric grace the front row seats. Coordinating cushions and mood lighting accentuate the vibrant colours; helping bring each screen to life.
Lyndon bespoke banquette seating was also specified within the venue’s ten pin bowling alley that has eight bowling lanes, two of which are located separately for private parties. Featuring a series of one-armed banquettes placed back-to-back, the seating has comfort and functionality, and maximises the use of space.
Commenting on the specification of Lyndon’s seating, Julia Critchley, guest services manager at the Flower Bowl, said: “The owners of The Flower Bowl scoured the world for the latest leisure trends when designing this exciting venue. Lyndon’s bespoke furniture not only fits seamlessly with the aesthetic desired for The Flower Bowl, it helps create a stunning and distinctive space.”
Managing director at Lyndon, Tim Armitt, added: “It was a pleasure working with the team at this magnificent leisure complex. The project is a wonderful opportunity to showcase our bespoke furniture service and skilled craftsmanship that can satisfy numerous design and spatial requirements. At this venue, the furniture works perfectly in both the cinema and the bowling alley; enhancing the quality and sophistication of the interior.”
