Back in 1957 MJ Bird & Son was launched with a simple mission: to celebrate great furniture and sell it at a great price.

Six decades later, and after several generations of the Bird family, we’re still here and still a favourite for people looking for leading furniture and carpet brands, style, quality and value.

For us it’s quite simply all about family and home.

Throughout 2017, we’ll be celebrating in lots of exciting ways – competitions, special discounts and plenty of fun on our website and via social media.

You’re looking forward to settling in for the night, but as you reach for the remote control, you trip over the bulky coffee table and find yourself face to face with the rug! If only you had more space in that tiny living room… Guess what? You’re not alone.

Even inhabitants of roomier living spaces often lament that they don’t have a larger area for entertaining, lounging or visiting with family.

The bottom line: unless a remodel is in the budget, we must appreciate the space we have. And there’s no better way to do this than by making some strategic design choices!

City dwellers often crave more space, but the second-best thing is space-saving, flexible furniture. Now manufacturers are finding new ways to shrink, fold and collapse furniture, and many also offer expert advice.

Keep the floor space as clear as possible. Make the walls work hard. Consider fold-down gate-leg tables and extending or wall-hung tables.

Choose beds with built-in storage and sofa beds that fold away. Side tables, coffee tables or stools with lift-up tops provide extra seating and storage.”

Choose furniture that is adaptable and flexible to meet the challenge. Coffee tables that lift to become dining tables, a “smart bed” can store sports equipment, TV units can offer storage and a footstool can open into a bed.

As for decor, you can use visual tricks to create an illusion of space. Where natural light hits a room, paint that surface white, glossy surfaces can bounce the light around.

Light & Space paint reflects twice as much light as ordinary emulsion, and glass-topped tables can increase the effect. Using the same floor coverings can link rooms together.

Worries over Brexit are keeping many awake at night, according to new research from Sealy UK. The study, which questioned 1000 people from across the country, was commissioned following Brexit, and reveals that 21% have since experienced disturbed sleep as a result of worries over job security, fears over economic uncertainty (19%) and the threat of impending recession (14%).

Meanwhile, July’s above-average temperatures also wrecked havoc on sleep quality, with more than half of people (62%) struggling to sleep as a result of the recent heatwave.

In response, Sealy has launched the largest worldwide sleep study in history, to help it comprehensively understand the impact major events can play on our sleep quality, as well to benchmark how well we are sleeping as a nation in comparison to the rest of the world.

Run in conjunction with Loughborough University’s Clinical Sleep Research Unit, participants in Australia, South Africa, China and South Korea are already involved. Sealy is now calling for Brits to head online and have their say.

Neil Robinson, sales and marketing director at Sealy, says: “We’re very excited to be conducting the census in association with Loughborough University’s Clinical Sleep Research Unit and our partners across the globe. Sleep is clearly an issue for many following the stresses caused by Brexit, and as such, the study will provide invaluable insights into sleep which will inform both our product development and the work of the Clinical Sleep Research Unit.

“This forms an important part of Sealy’s ongoing commitment to research and innovation in the sleep arena and it’s fantastic to be the country driving the study forward. We hope people across the UK will take the time out to complete the study for us.”

Professor Kevin Morgan from the Clinical Sleep Research Unit at Loughborough University adds: “Our mission here at the CSRU is to improve the understanding of evidence-based management of insomnia and chronic sleep disturbance through applied research, knowledge transfer and professional training. The Sealy Sleep Census fits perfectly within this. We’re pleased to be involved with the study and we’re looking forward to seeing the results, and identifying trends across the globe. This is certainly a groundbreaking project.”

The study takes around 10 to 15 minutes to complete and can be found here.

Quality in design and craftsmanship is guaranteed with every Axminster Carpet™ – each one is made in Britain using their traditional methods and is individually inspected.

Today Axminster Carpets is still a family run business based in the heart of Axminster, the Devon town that gave the carpets their name. The history of carpet making in the town dates back to 1755 when Thomas Whitty made carpets using what became known as the Axminster method of weaving.

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.
