LUSH wanted to update the York store with new shelving and display units to better reflect their brand and values.

We were introduced to Lush by Total Design Shopfitting Services to work directly with Lush. Total Design Joinery were chosen for this project after LUSH carried out rigorous quality checks and workshop inspections to make sure their standards and values were met throughout the manufacturing process.

To become an approved contractor we put together a sample base unit, which was trialled in Bournemouth, and was presented to Lush for their scrutiny, to ensure we were able to manufacture to their exacting standards.

We passed with flying colours and given our first project, their York store.

Lush provided us with truckloads of reclaimed timber which we worked into fabulous display units and counters.

Being conscious of their Ecological approach, we worked hand in hand with Lush to meet their values. We used environmentally friendly and recycled materials such as formaldehyde free boards and a beautiful recycled yogurt pot surface from Smile Plastics.

Keeping with the LUSH principles it was agreed that we would use reclaimed wood for the shelving and display units. This type of wood is difficult to work with and labour intensive but we love a challenge that comes from working with different sizes and thicknesses of planks and converting these from a very rough surface to a smooth finish. That’s a lot of splinters!

We pride ourselves on attention to detail so we also re-designed the bottom of the display units to create new custom-designed wheels. Metalwork expertise is just one of our USPs.LUSH were really pleased with the final look of the store and that we had completed the project in six weeks.

Since then new shelving and display units have been delivered to Exeter, Manchester Arndale and Trafford, Poole and Bournemouth stores.
