It’s Christmas and our winter sale is almost here. From December 29th until January 23rd, we will be offering 15% off all orders over £1,000. Just quote coupon code JAN when placing an order.
The fabulous sofa you can see in our Christmas window is the Marc-U and we’ve had this one covered in a luxuriously rich velvety red fabric as befitting the season. Standing alongside the Marc-U is the stylish Mogg TRI.BE.CA. floor lamp, designed by Marzia & Leonardo Dainelli, with it’s clever USB dock built into the bottom shelf. This one’s in matt black but it’s also available in white. And to ward off the winter cold, our eco-friendly bio-ethanol fire from Cocoon is keeping the showroom nice and toasty.

A month or two back we started introducing 8emezzo (Italian for eight & a half) which is a fresh new brand from well established Italian company Pianca. Its a great brand, the designs are directional but easy to live with & their 2013 collection is just fab. But one of the things we really love about it can be summarised in four words.

We have quite a few US Queen size beds in our king size beds section, but these are a few cms bigger, so your mattress needs to be a generously sized UK king (ViSpring work well, but memory foam ones tend to be exact sizing so don’t), & you need to tuck your bed linen & duvet in under the mattress.

Did you know that a standard double bed is only 135cm wide – which means if two people are sharing they have just the width of a baby’s cot to sleep in. A baby’s cot??!!

“Sharing a bed is the ultimate intimacy and latest research from America suggests that this intimacy helps to lower stress hormones and encourage feelings of safety and security,” said Jessica Alexander of The Sleep Council. Continue reading “Why should you buy a king size bed?”
