Benedict Heaver, Managing Director at Streets Heaver, was in attendance and he said: “The showroom looks great and the benefit of seeing it first-hand is that it provides inspiration on what’s possible for contemporary workspaces.

“The VR room provides an enhanced experience as it allows you to really visualise how a space will look and feel. The halo lights, fabric swatches and furniture displays are a great addition to the showroom and impressive for those visiting for the first time.”
