Decluttering … post summer holiday chilling / pre Christmas madness

It’s usually after the summer holidays and in the run up to Christmas, with thoughts of extra family and friends coming to stay, that (panicky) minds turn to decluttering (well… confessions from most of us on the team reveals this one!). So, in an attempt to make life a little less stressful we’ve pulled out a few of our latest designs to help put a little order into the chaos most of us surround ourselves with.

If it’s bigger changes you’re looking for then wall units will definitely provide a long-term solution.  There are lots of different styles to choose from, all modular, which means you can create exactly the design you want.

New design – from German cockerels to Italian graphics…

London is bursting at the seams with new art and design ideas: fashion, product technology, architecture and, of course, some of the best contemporary furniture around. Whenever the subject of art is discussed it always throws up those endless ‘but what is art?’ type questions.  We’re not sure how to answer that – we know good design when we see it but art is …whatever you want it to be isn’t it?

From our showroom on the Kings Road, we’re about four miles from Trafalgar Square, and recent visitors will have seen the latest piece of art to sit on the Fourth Plinth.  It’s a gorgeous powder blue sculpture of a cockerel entitled Cock by Katharina Fritsch.  Fantastic (although we’re not sure what Nelson would have made of it!).  What do you think?  Love it, hate it, just not sure?
