Reimagining Community Spaces: A Collaboration Between JB Commercial Furniture and Haysey Designs

Community centres serve as the cornerstone of neighbourhoods, offering a space for individuals to gather, connect, and engage in various activities. The Centre Community Centre at Mawsley in Kettering, Northamptonshire, is no exception. Recently, this beloved venue underwent a remarkable transformation, thanks to a collaborative effort between JB Commercial Furniture and Nichola Haysey from Haysey Designs Interior Design company. Together, they embarked on a journey to enhance the functionality and aesthetics of The Centre, ensuring that it remains a cherished hub for the local community.

Community centres and village halls often evoke thoughts of being outdated spaces, characterised by dowdy decor and utilitarian furnishings. These venues, while serving as vital hubs for community engagement and social gatherings, have long been associated with dimly lit interiors, hard, uncomfortable seating, and often, foldaway furniture that prioritises practicality over aesthetics. Despite their shortcomings in terms of ambiance and comfort, these spaces play a crucial role in fostering a sense of belonging and togetherness for many neighbourhoods.. There’s now an emerging recognition of the need to revitalise these community centres, transforming them into dynamic and inviting environments that better meet the needs and expectations of modern-day patrons. This is one of the many reasons our team at JB were happy to jump on board to support this project!

At JB Commercial Furniture, we pride ourselves on our ability to create inviting and practical environments tailored to the unique needs of our clients. The Centre Community Centre hosts a diverse array of multipurpose events, ranging from birthday parties to christening celebrations. Thus, it was essential for our team to curate a selection of furnishings that not only met these varied requirements but also maintained a cohesive design aesthetic throughout the space.

A cornerstone of any successful community centre is comfortable seating that encourages relaxation and social interaction. To achieve this, we provided a range of seating options, including plush armchairs and sleek side chairs, each adorned with custom fabrics meticulously chosen from our range by Haysey Designs. These pieces not only compliment the space with warmth and sophistication but also ensure that visitors feel welcome and at ease during their time at The Centre.

In the expansive function room, capable of accommodating up to 200 people, we installed banquet seating, paired with stylish tables, offering a seamless blend of form and function. Whether hosting a wedding reception, a community meeting, or a fundraising event, these furnishings provide the perfect backdrop for any occasion, while also standing up to the rigours of daily use.

Of course, no community centre is complete without a well-appointed bar area, and we were thrilled to lend our expertise in sourcing and supplying bar stools that perfectly complemented the overall design aesthetic. These contemporary stools not only provide patrons with a comfortable place to sit and socialise but also seamlessly integrate with the existing décor, enhancing the overall ambiance of the space.

What sets JB Commercial Furniture apart is our unwavering commitment to quality craftsmanship and innovative design. Each piece of furniture selected for The Centre Community Centre reflects our dedication to excellence, ensuring that the space remains both functional and visually striking for years to come. Our collaboration with Nichola Haysey from Haysey Designs allowed us to harness the power of creativity and expertise, resulting in a transformation that exceeded expectations.
