Furniture, Fabric, and Finishes Promote Patient Healing

In healthcare spaces, creating positive patient rooms to encourage healing time can be supported by thoughtful furniture.

Recently featured on, St. Luke’s unveils private patient rooms for Miners campus, “The one-person rooms in the suite provide patients with access to care and technology in a private, home-like setting. The model allows patients to stay in their rooms while having certain procedures and treatments, including blood work, diagnostic tests and dialysis services.”

“Similar to a newborn staying with a new mom, we know that patients who have their family members or caregivers with them throughout a hospital stay do better than those who do not,” said Kim Sargent, vice president of patient care services for St. Luke’s Miners Campus.

“Often, these individuals play a critical role in the care plan and education process, as they oversee the follow-up care once a patient leaves the hospital.”

Encouraging caregivers to spend the day and night with ease, KI Furniture’s Affina Collection is a stylish way for patients and families to lounge, KI’s Athens table provides the perfect occasional surface, and the LaResta Day Bed allows for comfortable overnight stay for visitors.

Additionally, Pallas Textiles was a featured fabric on the furniture including the patterns Deeply RootedBevel,  Stipple, and Holy Cow.  The organic swirls of the Deeply Rooted pattern certainly reflect natural elements, which promotes not only Biophilia in healthcare design, but is also part of the WELL Building Standard.

See below for photos of the space showing how the design of the furniture, fabric, and finishes seamlessly tie together:
