Contract Platform Murcia. Major suppliers of contract furniture and services

The contract furniture and furnishing formula refers to the supply and installation of equipment and decoration products for collective and private use under a specific work order. It includes a series of services that spans from the design of spaces and the specification of furnishing products to the coordination of sub-contractors for the completion of the projects.

In practice, it is an alternative sales and distribution channel focused at meeting the global and specialized demand for architecture, interior design, and civil engineering. Due to its transversal character, it involves different kind of products (upholstery, textiles, mattresses, bedrooms, seating, tables, lamps, office, bathroom, kitchen and outdoor furniture, decorative items, cladding…) and services (architecture, engineering, interior design, industrial design, lighting design and landscaping).

Key market segments for the contract industry are corporate (workplaces and offices), hospitality and leisure (hotels, restaurants, bars, leisure venues, sport centres and stadiums), marine (cruise ships, ferries, and yachts), healthcare (hospitals, old people’s homes, medical facilities), education (schools, universities, libraries and further education establishments), public institutions (embassies, government offices…), residential and real estate.

Companies included in the Contract Platform Murcia offer two different kinds of services:

  • Industrial production: they manufacture and supply contract quality furnishing products and construction materials, which meet the appropriate fire and durability requirements for the exacting market in which they are used.
  • Support services: can include project management, selection of materials, layout of a space, complete fit out of spaces, custom furniture design or the specification of specific furnishing products…

Furniture firms from the Platform Contract Murcia are experienced suppliers of a wide range of products in different style and price-ranges, including haute décor collections for exclusive spaces, traditional furnishing products, contemporary interior design and décor, outdoor furniture  and top-quality sofas and armchairs.

Most of them can also offer pure turnkey contract services that cover the complete arrangement of a space, from the design to the assembly and final fitting of furniture.

In this heterogeneous market, architects and interior designers play a key role in the process of selecting products and materials. Although the final choice of suppliers depends on the clients, architectural studios can decisively influence decisions. That is why is so important for furniture companies to work in close collaborations with them and be extremely reactive in meeting the need of professionals.

The Platform Contract Murcia offers also a roaster of engineering, architecture and interior design studios, which are very dynamic across different market segments, carrying out the design of interior and outdoor spaces, the decoration and the project management of private houses, hotels, restaurants, bars, workspaces as well as some urban planning and landscaping services.

European countries are main markets for the companies from the Murcia region involved in the contract furniture business, although good opportunities of collaboration open up also for extra-European projects located mainly in the Middle East, America – Central America and the Caribbean area -, North Africa and Asia.
