Modern seating for student accommodation providers

By Luke VanBentum, Graduate Design Student, Ellis Furniture

From quirky tub chairs on stylish wooden rockers to an all-singing all-dancing modular seating system, seating in student accommodation has quickly become a design feature, setting the tone instantly when you walk in. Seating has become the new popular room accessory. Used by designers and architects to create a unique and creative final touch to every space.

A great deal of thought goes into the shape, design, size, colours, fabrics; the list goes on! Seating has become an expression of design and trends, and along with the function of socialisation, it’s no longer just a practical place to sit down and rest weary bones.

Whilst designer looking-seating can have a designer price tag, there are many designs in the market now that are much more affordable. However, the cheaper the product, sometimes the sooner it will need to be replaced, especially in a high-traffic environment. Along with style and design, today’s student accommodation seating needs to be durable and able to withstand a heavy use / student environment. 

Ellis has launched a brand-new seating collection with an extensive range of on-trend and durable product options to enhance any space. Download the brochure here: – Contact us for more information at
