The Howies restaurants are a renowned name throughout Scotland, known for their expert knowledge in Scottish cuisine, and using this to create delicious dishes for us all to enjoy. Currently they have a number of restaurants open in Edinburgh.

The restaurants are revered for their use of fresh, local produce. Fresh seafood, locally grown vegetables and premium quality locally reared meats can be found aplenty, as well as Scottish wines and whisky.

Our design team at The Original Chair Company thought it was essential to convey these elements and their importance to the Howie’s name when creating the aesthetic of the premises.

We were approached by Howies team to create two private dining rooms of bespoke furniture and décor for their Aberdeen premises that best conveyed local Scottish element to their offering.

Using an array of Scottish fabrics and décor, we created a collection of unique pieces for each room.  

Flashes of pink and white tartan complement the highest quality wood, and create a timeless opulence for their diners to experience.

Our Director Kate was at the forefront of the creation of ‘The Game and Garden Room’, and ‘The Harbour Room’.

Work for these rooms included the sourcing of decor items with local interest, re-upholstery of furniture for the restaurants existing dining chairs, the creation of a new, relaxed seating area and all window treatments.

Kate was delighted to lead the Interior Design team by project managing this effort and defining the entire decoration scope also.

We were delighted to work with the Howies team to create these unique designs and were delighted that these met all of their needs and expectations and within time frame.

The chairs we featured in Howies were our Benson Wing Chairs – some of our best sellers – upholstered which were upholstered using a fabric by GP and J Baker, Game Show Fabric.
