Left Bank Melbourne, Australia Adage Furniture

Nestled in the heart of Melbourne’s vibrant Southbank precinct, Left Bank Melbourne is a cocktail bar and dining destination with a rich history and a reputation for timeless elegance. Since its establishment, it has become a Melbourne institution, where discerning patrons gather to enjoy exceptional food, drinks, and an air of sophisticated charm that would make them forget their exhaustion from work.

However, time had taken its toll on the venue’s interior, and the existing furniture was no longer meeting the expected standards. With the chairs and tables showing obvious wear and tear, this is where Adage Furniture Melbourne stepped in, pivotal in Left Bank Melbourne’s successful transformation.

Left Bank Melbourne’s story is intertwined with the evolution of Melbourne’s Southbank. Established in the late 1990s, the venue emerged during significant development in the area. As Southbank transformed from a neglected industrial zone into a cultural and entertainment hub, Left Bank Melbourne quickly carved a niche for itself. The venue’s commitment to quality, impeccable service, and stylish ambience resonated with Melbourne’s sophisticated clientele.

It became a go-to destination for celebrations, business lunches, romantic evenings, and everything. However, maintaining its status as a Melbourne icon required constant evolution. The decision to upgrade the furniture was a strategic move to ensure the venue continued to provide an exceptional experience that matched its reputation.

Left Bank Melbourne worked with Adage Furniture, a premium restaurant furniture supplier in Melbourne, to bring their venue to life. The owner of Left Bank was looking for something a little different. He wanted funky colours and gold to bring out the venue’s luxury and set it apart from its competitors.

Our consultant put forward many options – with various colours available. Picking the options took some time as the client wanted to ensure that the chairs he chose were precisely what he wanted in his venue to bring it back to life.

Selecting furniture for a high-traffic hospitality environment like Left Bank Melbourne presents several challenges. Unlike residential furniture, these pieces must be incredibly durable to withstand constant use and potential wear and tear from spills and heavy traffic.

Beyond durability, the furniture must be aesthetically pleasing and seamlessly integrated with the existing design scheme. Creating an inviting and comfortable atmosphere is crucial for any hospitality venue, and the right furniture plays a major role in achieving this goal.

Adage Furniture understood these challenges and approached the project with a focus on functionality, aesthetics, and longevity. The custom furniture created for Left Bank Melbourne showcased Adage Furniture’s expertise in material selection and craftsmanship. The bespoke chairs, for example, featured a combination of materials chosen for their specific properties:

  • Solid wood frames: The foundation of the chairs relied on solid wood, known for its strength and ability to withstand years of use. Different wood types offer varying strengths and aesthetics. Adage Furniture consulted with Left Bank Melbourne to choose the perfect wood that complemented the venue’s existing design and offered exceptional durability.
  • High-density foam: The chairs incorporated high-density foam in the seat and backrest for optimal comfort. This foam provides excellent support while retaining its shape, ensuring patrons remain comfortable during extended visits.
  • Premium fabrics: The chairs’ upholstery played a crucial role in both aesthetics and durability. Adage Furniture offers a range of fabric options, each with unique properties.

Beyond the materials, the design of the custom chairs undoubtedly incorporated ergonomic principles. Ergonomics is the study of human-machine interaction, and furniture design focuses on creating pieces that support the body and promote good posture. Well-designed chairs help to prevent fatigue and discomfort, even during long periods of sitting.

The custom chairs for Left Bank Melbourne featured elements such as a curved backrest for lumbar support, a seat height that promotes proper leg positioning, and armrests for additional comfort. These seemingly minor details can significantly impact the overall dining experience, ensuring patrons feel comfortable and relaxed throughout their visit.

The successful refurbishment of Left Bank Melbourne stands as a testament to the collaborative spirit between Adage Furniture and the venue’s management team. Through meticulous planning, careful material selection, and a focus on aesthetics and functionality, Adage Furniture delivered a solution that seamlessly integrated with the existing space while elevating the overall ambience.

As Adage Furniture quotes, “As Melbourne’s most exciting cocktail, bar and dining destination with uninterrupted views of the Yarra and city skyline, situated on Southbank near Crown Melbourne, there is no other choice. Discover Left Bank’s spectacular views, superb menus and world-class cocktails.”

The project provides exceptional comfort for patrons and ensures Left Bank Melbourne can continue its legacy of providing an unparalleled dining and cocktail experience for years to come with the help of Adage Furniture.
