April 1, 2019

Discussing the very essence of relationships was where the design process for a sofa affectionately known as The Hug started, and now the range, called Anumo, is developing with a keen focus on delivering the future needs of the care sector.

Teal Living are designing and manufacturing design led, fit for purpose furniture of the future and staying true to the philosophy of breaking from traditional design standards by casting aside care home furniture pre-conceptions.

Breaking from traditional design standards the collection takes its name from the designers themselves ANUMO, Ali and Nick Munro #nickmunrodesigner. Designed with the art of interaction in mind, the Anumo sofa now has a complementary Anumo armchair designed to complete the overall principle of encouraging individuals to socialize and engage with those around them – indeed the standout range has become a talking point in itself.

“Developing furniture for the future of care homes happens very much in consultation. The sector is evolving, caring needs and practices are changing, and expectations are much higher. We are defined by our independent thinking; our R&D department’s genuine desire to transform residential care home interiors is always evolving as we work with our customers and industry design experts.” Say’s Sara Jane Farrow, national business manager at Teal Living.

Practical, strong and versatile the Anumo range is designed with longevity in mind. The super strong frame supports multiple components, such as lumbar support, comfort foam and pressure relieving cushions. The seat depth and seat height enable’s ease of maneuverability and the overall design avoids hidden crevices or seams making for an easy cleaning procedure.

Sara-Jane continues: “Not only are we offering something very distinctive but we’re very much part of the process of helping care homes develop the right environment, where choice, freedom and independence can thrive. We haven’t lost sight of the practicalities but we know customers are looking for something different, which is probably why this range is receiving enormous interest and success – perfect for those looking to create knock-out care environments.”
