Posted onPosted on 12th Mar

Mansfield-based Deanestor, one of the UK’s leading contract furniture manufacturers, has won a £4m contract to provide kitchen and bedroom furniture for new student housing schemes in Exeter and Cardiff.

Deanestor will supply and fit bespoke furniture for ensuite bedrooms, studios and penthouses for The Depot in Exeter, which is under construction.

The mixed-use, eight-storey scheme will provide 601 student beds, retail space and high specification communal facilities, including study spaces, a games room and lounge.

Construction is also advancing on The West Wing in Cardiff for 644 rooms, including studios, ensuite bedrooms and penthouse apartments.

There will be an on-site media room, gym and yoga studio, private dining and study areas.

Deanestor worked with Mace to develop a range of student bedroom and kitchen furniture for use on multiple schemes.

Deanestor’s bedroom range includes three-quarter size double beds with integral storage, wardrobes, desks, book cases and shelving.

William Tonkinson, managing director of Deanestor, said: “We undertook extensive product development work with Mace, which included a high level of design engagement and the production of sample rooms to create a range of bedroom and kitchen furniture options that can be rolled out on multiple schemes.

“The furniture is designed to maximise storage space, provide a high level of aesthetics for an exemplary student experience, and long-term durability.”

Oliver Gardiner, development director at Mace said: “We visited the Deanestor factory, which was impressive and gave us the reassurance that the capabilities, logistics and capacity required for projects of this scale are in place.”
