Glass Display Cabinets for Marriott
With a name like Marriott, you already know that it’s quality that counts. With no margin for error and only the very best being good enough, we set to work to create some beautiful oak display cabinet units for the shop at the Marriott Hotel.
Marriot Hotels are one of the world’s best-known hospitality brands, boasting over 6,000 properties in 122 different countries around the globe. Founded originally by Alice and John Willard Marriott, the company has been trading for almost 90 years from its headquarters in Maryland. Revenues exceed $17bn per year, and for anyone who has spent any time travelling, the brand is synonymous with quality and style.
Our customer’s goal
Marriott needed to update the window display of a shop inside their hotel. They wanted to buy bespoke furniture to house various toiletries and other products being sold in their in-house retail premises. They needed glass display cabinets that were high quality, aesthetically flawless and versatile to complete the window display.
We understood the priorities of the Marriott Hotel, which was to obtain oak display case units that were both functional and beautiful for their shop display. The product had to be hard wearing, well-built and custom made to their specifications; not any old cheap glass showcase would do. With a track record in producing gorgeous display cabinets UK wide, we knew we could get this job done well. We had to think about:
- Style: The hotel needed something both in-keeping with their sophisticated brand and yet still modern. It needed to be elegant but not stuffy. For this reason, we picked the light oak colour of wood, as this presents beautifully in a classic yet contemporary surrounding.
- Construction: The cabinet had to be safe as well as beautiful, so we used 8mm safety glass in the doors and shelving for maximum visibility and safety. The cabinets were manufactured here in the UK, to British standards, using high quality wood and approved joining techniques.
- Design: We installed internal lighting within the roof of the display case, and used glass shelving to allow the light to penetrate right down to the bottom. The glass shelves were designed to be fully adjustable, so Marriott could alter their displays and use of the cabinet in the future if necessary.
These bespoke furniture UK manufactured display cabinets were created to the precise measurements supplied by the Marriott Hotel, so that they would fit beautifully into the required display position with no compromises necessary.
The end results
Our customer was delighted with the end result, and made good use of the cabinets in their shop display, as you can see in the photos. Later on, the customer came back to us to purchase a matching surround board. This was used along with the oak glass cabinet units to create a partition wall in the hotel, proving just how flexible these investments really were.
