Who We Are

Take a seat and discover the world of Race Furniture

A team of innovators and creators, and thrive on turning good environments into great experiences…

The seats you choose for your venue should be a reflection of its character and enhance the audiences’ experience while using the space. This is why we never produce the same seat, each venue is unique and so the seats sat within it should be too.

Our process and skills allow us to create completely bespoke seats that not only meet expectations, but exceed them. 

Dive into our world and then get in touch, we’d love to discuss your project.
