Located in central Manchester, Havwood’s new 1060 sq ft showroom is well worth a visit. The company’s fourth UK location (joining Clerkenwell, Chelsea and Carnforth), it promises a destination experience, and adopts an industrial design that reflects the city’s cultural heritage.
The design brief commanded a space that reflected the personality of the city. Inspiration was drawn from Manchester’s iconic music scene, showcased across the showroom’s colour theme of black and yellow; a clever reference to Factory Records, the local record label responsible for some of the 80s’ most iconic acts, including Joy Division, New Order and Happy Mondays.
The black and yellow theme also celebrates one of Manchester’s best-known symbols: the worker bee. Adopted as a motif for the city during the Industrial Revolution, it has since been embraced as a visual symbol of unity and strength.
The Havwoods logo has also been given a Manchester makeover to celebrate the showroom opening. Industrial references continue throughout the new showroom, exposed brick walls, steel beams and metal-framed displays, embracing the history of the old mill site and nearby architectural railway arches.
