Within Arsenal Emirates, Andrew Muirhead leather was used at the premium tier within both the WM Club, an exclusive members-only restaurant, bar and lounge and the Foundry, for seasonal buffet dining.

Following a concept from design company 20/20, the leather selected was based around the clubs heritage and designed to represent Arsenal club colours. Chosen for their luxurious finish, hides were primarily used in Mulberry, a bespoke colour specially created through Andrew Muirhead’s flexible manufacturing process.

At the WM Club, hides in Ingleston Mulberry were used for the concierge desk, seating booths, wall panels and ceiling. Elsewhere, Ingleston Gunmetal leather was chosen for seating cubes, dining chairs and wall panels. For the Foundry, Ingleston Nutmeg hides were used in the deep-button booths.

At Manchester City Football Club, Andrew Muirhead leather in Ingleston Sable was used in the boardroom suite on fixed bench seating. Bridge of Weir leather in Explore and Warm Beige was used in the Chairman’s Lounge on wall panels and tapered ceiling panels. On the Chairman’s VIP linked corridor, Warm Beige hides were also used for wall panels from the stadium entrance to the private suite.

Design company APM Design selected Bridge of Weir and Andrew Muirhead leather.

Archie Browning, sales director for Andrew Muirhead commented: ‘We are delighted to have been chosen to provide the leather for the refurbishment of both these iconic stadiums. Furthermore, having worked with Emirates on the outfitting of their aircraft interiors since 2008, the opportunity to work with them once again is an endorsement to our quality.’

Jamie Davidson, sales director for Bridge of Weir leather said: ‘Providing the leather for such a prestigious area of Manchester City football club is testament to the excellence of Bridge of Weir Leather.’
