  • Best-selling Bianco II white extending table

    The star of the video above is the Bianco II extending table - click for price and size information.

    Our Bianco dining table began life after many of our customers asked us for a white extending dining table. It was a pub conversation with my friend Vicki that finally pushed us to the drawing board. She had searched everywhere for a white table that extended and couldn't find one that was still good quality. So we consulted with our wonderful table makers and came up with a system where the leg section moves, so everybody gets a good seat. Voila - the Bianco II extending table was born. Continue reading

  • Do people really hate televisions?

    Probably not. But so many of us do hate bulky TV units. They are getting larger and brasher, more hi-tec and louder. Not exactly something you want in a central place in your living room. The pressure to get bigger and better screens is turbo-driven by the World Cup and Wimbledon, as demonstrated by Dixon's recent announcement of surging TV sales.

    Gone are the days when a modest TV can be disguised next to your plants on an alcove bookshelf. These days it's more likely to have replaced that painting you loved on your living room wall. Once every four years this might look like a thing of beauty as it shows in high definition detail the curling free kick that wins England the World Cup (ahem), but what about the rest of the time?

    The idea of enclosing your television in a large cupboard often makes the situation worse. Do you really have room for a monstrous wardrobe in your living room?

    Forget surround-sound, there is only one response. Surround-style. Make sure your new TV is accompanied by beautiful furniture and aesthetically pleasing accessories.

    We offer a wide of range of TV units. These can support the heaviest box or sit stylishly under wall mounted units. They can incorporate flip down doors, shelves or drawers. Large or small, oak or teak. All with contemporary designs and made from solid materials - no veneer or plastics here! Then add vases, picture frames, plants or objects you love to soften the look of the TV.

    Lead times are quick, and your new TV unit will last through many World Cups to come. They'll give you more pleasure than watching England too! View all of our lovely tv units. Continue reading
