Quality Craftsmanship

The Quality behind the Craftsmanship …

It’s that time again.

Periodically we like to offer an insight into how some of our furniture is made – a behind the scenes if you like.

We regularly audit our suppliers overseas and this offers the perfect opportunity to take pictures and videos of the various processes involved in the manufacturing.

It’s not good enough for us to talk up the ‘quality’ of our ranges we also feel we need to back this up with physical evidence to give you the peace of mind that we know what we’re on about and do uphold our end of the bargain.

In fact, before we delve head first into this post you may be interested in a couple of other posts in this series …

Super September Sale – 2 days only …

For two days only – 5th and 6th of September we’re offering you the exclusive opportunity to get 25% OFF everything you see in our Showroom *.

Yes, that’s a massive 25% Off everything for 2 days only* …

And why are we offering 25% off everything?

Simple really, as it draws to the close of the season we need to make some room for the new stock items that will come into the business over the next few months and a great way to do this is to hold an end of season sale and pass some massive savings onto you.

That way everyone’s a winner.

Love Your Garden 2015

Love Your Garden 2015 – our second appearance!

Earlier on in the year we were thrilled to be contacted by the makers of ITV’s Love your Garden for the second time asking if we would be able to provide some furniture for the show in August 2015.

Namely, our Curved Backless Benches.

The answer was a firm, ‘yes,’ as we know from previous experience what involvement with Alan Titchmarsh and his team can bring.

After all it was only in 2013 that we supplied one of our Mighty Apple Day Beds to the programme with great success.
