Harvey Maria authentic wood effects have been fitted, throughout Gould Barbers, at 18 Tesco stores across the UK. Installed by Norfolk-based Featherby Flooring, the family-owned barbers offers a traditional barber shop experience for customers of all ages. Registered emboss designs from Harvey Maria’s new MSeries and Premium Wood Collection were chosen to reflect the shops’ authentic interior design, providing a real wood look with a host of practical benefits.
Gould Barbers was founded by Darran and Leigh Gould, in Kings Lynn, in 2013. The brothers opened their first Tesco-based shop in 2016 and now have 19 outlets in stores from Chesterfield to Gatwick. Over the next year, they plan to expand into 50 additional Tesco stores, creating around 400 new jobs.
The chain’s interior design is sleek and clean. Mono-toned paint finishes, black leather and chrome contrast with rustic oak counters and Harvey Maria’s authentic wood decors. The two wood effect plank designs – Spring Oak from the MSeries Natural Oak Collection and Premium Wood Walnut - give an authentic, richly grained wood finish with the practical benefits of an LVT. The surfaces provide a durable and waterproof floor finish, ease of maintenance and slip resistance; all essential within a high traffic barber shop environment.
“The Gould Barbers projects had one strong criteria, quality. This is clearly the business model Darran and Leigh are successfully emulating throughout their growth. Installing a floor covering of our choice for the continuation of this quality into the business was very important to Gould Barbers as a brand, its clients, staff and the Tesco stores they are situated within. Our chosen product to fulfil this criteria was Harvey Maria, who worked tirelessly to fill every order and ensure the product was delivered on time and to a very high standard; a fantastic team to work with and for this we thank them,” commented Dean Featherby from Featherby Flooring Ltd.
