Education furniture at Gumley House School
Gumley House Convent School in Isleworth, Middlesex, knows the importance of providing the highest education for youngsters. Established in 1841, the school has prepared generations of young women to take their place in the world. So when they needed to find an art room furniture manufacturer to supply fitted furniture for three art rooms and a ceramics room they looked no further than David Bailey Furniture Systems.
Delighted with the new rooms
Headteacher, Ewa Kolczynska said: “It is important that our students have opportunities to explore their creative side in school, perhaps discovering a rare talent in the process. We wanted our facilities to reflect the high standards we set and we needed an art room furniture supplier who understood our needs in terms of space, storage, design, quality and, of course, cost. David Bailey Furniture Systems took on board our ideas and created a space that meets all our needs. We are delighted with the three new art rooms and the ceramics room.”
An important consideration for any art room furniture design is storage and creative space: storage for art supplies and materials and space for drying and displaying artwork.
20 different colourways
With the choice of 20 different colours as standard, David Bailey Furniture Systems’ Education range of fitted school furniture enables you to find a match for your school’s creative side. Gumley House School, with recommendation from David Bailey Furniture Systems, selected school storage units with duck egg blue doors and speckled white worktops to make full use of natural light in the creative space. Incorporating open shelving, enclosed cupboards, upright storage cupboards and extra wide drawers and shelves, the art room furniture meets all the needs of the art pupils.

Education furniture installations
Our specialist education furniture is installed in many schools, colleges and further education facilities. We have recently been selected by main contractor E W Beard to manufacture furniture for Headington Girls School in Oxford, in a £65,000 contract. This will be for 45 units and 100 metres of worktop in 11 classrooms. The work will start in November 2020. Other education customers include:
- Yateley Community School, Hampshire
- Channing School, London
- University of Wales
- Clore Shalom School, Hertfordshire
Architects and Contractors rely on us because they know we are well established and professional and our durable furniture is manufactured in Britain with craftsmanship and professionalism. We also install our own furniture into a facility, so there is no need to ensure a contractor has installation instructions.
School rebuilding programme
Update July 2020: We welcome the recent pledge by the prime minister, Boris Johnson, to provide a £1bn schools rebuilding programme over a 10-year investment plan for upgrades and refurbishments. This is the first major schools rebuilding programme since 2014 and will make sure our schools and colleges are fit for the future. It is part of the prime minister’s plan to provide a world-class education for children and to help the economy bounce back from this year’s coronavirus crisis.
