Public spaces in healthcare facilities require furniture that allows its visitors to adjust and reconfigure as needed. In response to that need, Cumberland released a new, encompassing collection to add to their already well-established and elegant product offering. The Slide Collection addresses the changing need for how and where people sit and helps provide comfort for visitors seeking solace.
“The collection is designed to add a new range of flexibility, functionality and purpose to a variety of office and public spaces. The furniture can be grouped and re-grouped to define space, place and activity.” – David Mocarski, product designer
Although geared towards corporate work spaces; the Slide Collection offers comfort and flexibility for public spaces in healthcare settings, too. Groups of family members can easily configure seating options and occasional tables for small intimate conversation and larger settings.
The lounge chair, designed with extended “wings” for seating flexibility, allows the user to comfortably relax or swing their legs to the side and engage in conversation. It’s rigid polyurethane core and angular stainless steel frame provide elegant stability without adding unnecessary visual weight.Cumberland | Current Lounge
Refined seam and stitch details give this lounge series a tailored look. The Statuary Bronze metal finish option provides an extra level of sophistication.
The Current Bench has a 19″deep upholstered seat with a low back cushion and is available in 38″, 48″ and 60″ widths. When paired with its companion occasional table and a refreshing dose of daylight, this is the perfect solution for medical staff to sit and take a break to check emails or meet with a co-worker.Cumberland | Current Bench
Current Stool can be easily integrated into lounge settings, collaboration spaces or cafe areas within a healthcare facility – or shared between these zones and moved around when needed. It’s contoured seat allows for a variety of postures and is extremely lightweight, making it easy to move.
The variety of seated heights makes this piece even more successful in shared applications. Chair height, 21″h | Counter height, 27″h | Bar height, 32″h

Coffee tables and side tables round out the collection and provide space for visitors to set down their personal belongings. The thoughtfully designed table height creates a visually pleasing aesthetic line to it’s adjacent chair.The pull-up table is highly versatile and forms an impromptu working environment for medical staff traveling through the facility or family members needing a place to check in on their work.
Location within a healthcare facility and the associated level of cleaning regiments, dictate the type of upholstery needed. Spaces near, or within, patient areas likely require high performance vinyl because of their durability and resistance to harsh bacteria. Public lobby areas typically have less exposure to germs, so upholstery with less stringent cleaning processes can be selected. Both vinyl and upholstery work beautifully with this series. DesignTex’s Biophillia collection, which offers coated upholstery fabrics and high performance woven textiles, received a NeoCon 2017 Gold Award for Healthcare Fabrics & Textiles. It’s focus on the importance of nature within healthcare environments pairs well with this collection from Cumberland.
The Dock Lounge Chair brings a sense of solid comfort to the flexible, mobile environments of the Slide Collection. Sculptural in form, it adds visual dimension and invites those who would like to rest, wait, or work.The Dock Lounge collection is fully upholstered, with seats and backs of three inch thick multi-density polyurethane foam. Over-sized nylon caster glides, on both the ottomans and lounge pieces, allow for easy movement lock when occupied.Cumberland | Dock Lounge and Ottoman
The variations of the Port Lounge Chair were designed in response to differing needs for flexibility and mobility. With a seat design that can accommodate many different postures and a back that wraps the user with support Port is the perfect solution for many applications. Choosing between four legs or an airy swivel base can telegraph a mobile or more stationary piece: The four-leg version is easily moved, while the swivel with its self-return is intended to be more stationary.Offered in either high or low back, Port has an upholstered seat and back cushion with a rigid polyurethane core. The simplicity in its design encourages the selected upholstery to make a statement and compliment the sophisticated stitching.
Whether specified as a complete series or planned to stand alone and be sprinkled throughout a healthcare environment; Current, Dock and Port offer sophistication and flexible function to its users. The Slide Collection by Cumberland adds beauty to interior spaces and compliments its surrounding architecture with its clean lines and simple form.
