Cormar Carpets made in Lancashire

There is no better combination of quality, value and choice than a Cormar carpet and the fact that they are manufactured on site at the two mills in Lancashire – Holme Mill and Brookhouse Mill makes them even more desirable in our eyes.

This enables Cormar to retain control of raw materials and quality throughout the production process. Cormar Carpets are suitable for most areas throughout the home as bedroom carpet, lounge carpet or stair carpet and are produced in various pile weights and a wear suitability rating is provided on all carpet samples.

They offer a free sample service enables carpet samples to be sent direct to your home for you to match to your own interior design scheme.

Sitting pretty: Choosing the right sofa-bed can be a bit of minefield can’t it?

You want to get the exact product you want to ensure the comfort of your guests. That’s why we love the high quality British made sofa beds from Alstons.

There are certain questions you’ll need to ask at the outset, such as what type of mattress you want. Pocket sprung are generally good, with the more springs the better. Memory foam tends to divide sleepers more with its lasting impression that moulds to the body.
Also, what type of sofa cushions do you want on the sofa itself? Softer ones that you need to plump daily or more durable ones that do not require much attention?

It is also worth making a decision about the sofa-bed mechanism, with my preferred option being the sofa converting into a bed in one easy movement with wooden slats to provide additional back support.

Interior designer Sarah Ward, of Sarah Ward Associates, recommends investing money so that you get the exact product you want to ensure the comfort of your guests.

She said: ‘The thickness of the mattress and the mechanism will dictate the overall height of the sofa. A corner will unit make the product seem more generous and luxurious. And remember that the bed size will be governed by the seating area within the arms of the sofa.’

Of course Alstons so sofas too. For example The Venice is available as a 2 or 3 seater sofa and the range includes chairs, accent chairs and footstools in a fabulous choice of fabrics.
