Decorum: New Inspiration for 2013


The Autumn Fair at the NEC Birmingham surpassed our expectations.

Since the economic downturn, we have seen a deflated and depleted supply of furniture and of interior decorative inspiration.

No longer! Green shoots are now definitely emerging, although the volume of trade stands is still well down. So what has inspired us?

Top of our list – unusual new artwork. 3D shapes on glass, handmade in stunning colours and sizes – we have ordered a selection. A new style of oak furniture involved us committing to a container load to keep prices sharp. It will not arrive until early Spring, but that is soon enough for 2013 projects.

A wide range of ‘feature’ items of furniture to give our schemes that vital ‘wow’ factor; including 2 stunning sets of dining chairs, an unusual curved sofa & giant footstool, stunningly trimmed easy chairs to complement sofas for smaller properties.

Eclectic accessories: choosing the right lamp, mirror, even cushions & throws makes the vital difference to a scheme, without which the basics can look bland.

It is all too easy to overstock our store; so other useful supplier contacts were also collected so we can order as necessary.

Let new client orders roll in: we have never had a more exciting supply of unique pieces!
