  Almost simultaneously, as the clocks went back just under a week ago, the temperature has noticeably dropped; the nights are drawing in and winter suddenly seems to be upon us.  So, what better than putting your feet up for the evening in your nice cosy home? One good way to add warmth to any room is via the lighting; lamps are an especially good way to make a room warmer and much more welcoming in the … Continued

If you’d turned up at our showroom last Thursday night you’d have been forgiven for thinking you had arrived at the wrong place; all of our furniture was on display, but every seat was occupied by people enjoying the memorable sounds of Fleetwood Mac.  It was of course our special Linn Lounge evening with Loud & Clear.  Guests were not only enjoying tracks like The Chain, Dreams and Go Your Own Way, they were experiencing the incredible sound quality … Continued
