Working with local high quality suppliers

We do our very best to ensure décor and furniture positively helps in making life easy and comfortable for residents. All Colten Care homes benefit from elegant, well-appointed interior design with locally-crafted, bespoke furnishings the order of the day. Long-standing relationships with trusted suppliers enable us to prescribe the exact requirements of chairs, tables, drawer units, desks, bedside cabinets and so on.

Made to measure

Two Lymington businesses exemplify this. Webber Furniture, a third-generation family carpentry firm, have been with us for more than eight years. The work solely in hand-crafted oak, making many of our dining room tables and chairs and, more recently, bedroom furniture.

Around the corner from Webber, fabrication firm Fusion has been busy making 68 art-deco-style vanity units ready for Bourne View’s en suite bathrooms.

Our Head of Technical Design, Alan Portsmouth, specified the exact requirements to fabricator and welder Julian Bailey based on suggestions put through our recently-formed innovation group. This involves representatives from across Colten coming together to evaluate ideas on how to make life better for residents.
