Danetti products were used to bring an old building screeching into the 21st century to create the gorgeous interior of Fuji restaurant in Stratford Upon Avon. We caught up with the Managing Director Marcella Conner, to see how she achieved the look…

DANETTI: What look were you trying to achieve at Fuji?

Marcella: We wanted to highlight the traditional features of the 17th century building and incorporate a contemporary element, creating an aesthetically pleasing design yet keeping it practical.

D: What pieces did you choose?

M: The Elma bar stool and Quadrato bar stool.

D: Why did you opt for Danetti furniture?

M: The first piece that we chose fitted perfectly within the design of Fuji and the second piece contributed to it. We used a lot of reflective surfaces and masculine lines to introduce the contemporary and elegant element of the design within the traditional building. The Elma introduced the feminine curves that we were looking for and the Quarato was in keeping with the masculine lines of that particular area within the restaurant.

D: What do you think of the finished look?

M: We are very pleased with the finished look and moreover extremely pleased with the response from our customers.

D: Did you find Danetti a good company to deal with?

M: I found Danetti extremely helpful, Daniel [the owner and founder of Danetti] in particular. We had an extremely tight deadline and he pulled all the stops out to get our furniture to us on time.

D: What has the customer response been?

M: The customer response of the overall design has been phenomenal, we are the first within our area to attempt a contemporary design within a traditional building.
