Passing our furniture on to future generations!

In 1988 my parents Chris and Joan Dyer bought a settee from you. They previously lived round the corner in Bolton-le-Sands on Marefield Road, if you have any staff from that time – they knew you well.

I remember the day it arrived at our then new family home ( Bambers Walk, Wesham, Preston, PR4 3DG – you may still have the record).

An exciting delivery for children aged 7, 6 and 3 to bounce around on for the first time (although we were strictly forbidden!!).

A lot has happened since then. They no longer have the couch – I do. Although I’m 34 now! And what I can’t believe is that it still looks better than other cheaper couches long since bought and sagged since. It seems I had the best deal with the hand me down. It has seen me through many twists and turns of life. It’s been a spare bed, a film buddy and a friend to so many of my friends and family over the years. I would have been lost without it.

So I just wanted to say thank you.

Now it’s my turn to finally get on the property ladder for the first time and I’ve bought my own place – an apartment. The couch is coming with me, until I can find a more contemporary design to match my decor… Although I may just get it recovered as it really does still look good as new.

Although it’s definitely time for a new mattress. And out of the blue I saw your competition. It made me smile. It’s definitely time for some new furniture once I’ve saved up!!

I bet you rarely find out what happened to your furniture and the lives it has shared, so I thought I’d share the story of just one.

Kind Regards

Rachael Dyer

You already know a peaceful home is a happy home. While that likely means choosing your furniture, lighting and home fabrics based on their comfort quotient, there’s one thing that’s easy to overlook — soundproofing.

Nothing zaps your zen quite as quickly as the sound of noisy neighbors above you, or honking cars outside. But we know what you’re thinking: soundproofing equipment is pretty ugly — remember those foam pads that covered the walls of your music room at school? There are, however, plenty of home decor choices you can make to help absorb excess noise, and they don’t necessarily mean skimping on style.
