Starting out as a small collection of customisable tables and chairs, filling gaps of demands in the global market, Table Place Chairs has since grown into a full range of design-led contract furniture.

This week, we’re getting to know Philip Macaulay, Global Hospitably Director with some quick-fire questions!

It’s a newly formed role to expand the Table Place Chairs portfolio within the hotel and cruise markets on a global scale.

What has been your favourite project to work on?
Too early yet with TPC, but in my previous role I’d have to say the Pan Pacific Hotel – London.

Do you have an industry insight or top tip that you can share with the community?
We do like to socialise!!

What do you love about the Cruise Interiors industry?
It’s a very close knit community

Seeing the back of the last 2 years and reengaging with Operators and the A&D community

Let’s get to know Philip a bit better…

My first real position within our industry was with Skopos Design. Patience is very much a virtue!

Road biking, playing cricket, using the gym, horse racing and spending time with my 3 rather grown up kids!
