all furniture to create an entirely new marble

chosen due to its great looks and texture,
durability, 3D conformability, waterproofness,
and easiness of cleaning and maintenance.


Using our cutting-edge interior film solutions
can help refurbish restaurant furniture
without the need for replacement and hiring
skips. In addition to this, when using our
interior films, any damaged parts can be

Interie is the perfect company to work with for renovations as they have multiple options to choose from when resurfacing furniture & their support team are  incredibly knowledgeable.
Transforming existing furniture, modernising the space in question with efficiency. The restaurant was completely refurbished but some of the built in furniture needed
a facelift, without closing the premises. The product we chose allowed for clean and fast installation and the finish is unbelievable.
