Counters Explained


Top edge overhangs by 1cm on all sides giving a clean and tidy edge

eco friendly

Honeycomb cardboard or black and white tops available. The size of the top defines the counter size, so a 500mm wide counter would mean the top itself is 500mm wide - including the overhang, so the counter underneath is slightly narrower


Counters are usually used as work surfaces primarily used for practical purposes like workspace, transactions, or displays.

Enhanced aesthetics



Rounded corners add a touch of elegance and softness to the overall appearance of your furniture. They create a more organic and inviting feel, which can be particularly beneficial for brands or businesses aiming for a contemporary, modern, or friendly visual identity.

  • With rounded corners of any size, you can create furniture that is not only visually appealing but also safe and functional.

Ergonomics: Furniture with rounded corners offers improved ergonomics. The absence of sharp edges ensures a more comfortable user experience where people may lean or interact closely, such as display stands, counters, or seating areas.

Wrap around graphics



Easy Installation: The Velcro attachment system simplifies the installation process. The graphic, printed on hybrid PVC/polyester 400-micron rollable media, has Velcro attached to the top and bottom edges.

Reusability: The Velcro attachment system allows for easy removal and reapplication of the graphics. This feature is handy when display furniture needs to be regularly updated or rebranded. You can easily replace the existing graphic with a new one by detaching and reattaching the Velcro, extending the lifespan of your display furniture and reducing the cost of replacing the entire unit.

Durable: Surface protected from scratches, stains, and general wear and tear, prolonging the lifespan of your furniture to maintain its appearance over time.
