All too often, we see fabulous designer magazines showing uber-stylish interiors that catch the eye and make us dream of a complete refurbishment of the whole house. But, when you start to look more closely at the highly styled furniture and the light-coloured carpets we soon begin to realise that, much as they are stunning to look at, they are perhaps not so practical for your own lifestyle.
It’s a common problem, we all dream about having a show house interior, however the reality is that you have to blend some existing furniture, perhaps a family heirloom, with something new. More importantly, we have to consider the practicalities; clever as it may be, can your Labrador be trained to wipe it’s paws at the front door? Will the kids (an even adults) stop having little accidents with their favourite tipple?
Living with an interior is invariably nothing like the glossy magazines suggest, ‘living’ is the operative word and that includes spills, ware and tear and Granny’s old display cabinet!
However, you don’t need to concede creativity for comfort and you don’t need to snub style for sustainability. At John Dick & Son we work with manufacturers that understand modern living; they marry style and comfort and they make furniture this is innovative in its design, but functional in its application.
Look at the highly styled ranges for Aleal; not only eye-catching, but available in a massive range of hard-wearing finishes and colours so that you get exactly what you want. Or, try out Fama; as comfortable on the eye as it is on the rest of your body. And, Catellan Italia’s dining furniture is feast for the eye and a perfect addition for any modern interior. These three manufacturers, from Portugal, Spain and Italy, are just a selection of what we offer in our showroom but they adequately demonstrate that style and comfort can live together in perfect harmony.
The best way to appreciate the true quality of the many manufacturers we represent is to come in and see (and try them) for yourself, we are sure you will be pleasantly surprised with the range of furniture we have and the quality of every piece we offer.
