SEASONAL REMINDER TO TURN YOUR MATTRESS
It's time to flip and rotate again. (Your mattress, not you). It helps to prolong your mattress's useful life and even out the natural settlement!

WELCOME TO PLYMOUTH 2020
This year should have seen fantastic celebrations spearheaded here in Plymouth UK as well as in Holland and the USA on the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower sailing to land the Pilgrim Fathers at Plymouth Rock, USA. The city was listed by Conde-Nast Traveller as one of the World's Top Ten Places to visit in 2020. Covid19 stopped the celebrations in their tracks.
Plymouth is a beautiful city and should be on anyone's bucket-list with its magnificent setting twixt moor and sea, its history and the rare opportunity to "see a Sound". Being proud of our business and our heritage, we welcome all of our customers to come pay a visit. Let us know beforehand that you're coming and we'll be delighted to treat you to a wonderful Cornish Cream Tea on Plymouth's ancient Barbican where you'll find, amongst other things, the oldest working commercial bakery in the UK and the departure point of the Pilgrims' brave voyage.
Velvet. Even saying the word feels luxurious. Originating in Asia, velvet made its way to Europe along the Silk Road, found fame during the Renaissance and has been a pillar in fashion and interiors ever since. Velvet feels romantic, luxurious, but not too extravagant. It works in contemporary and traditional interiors and can feel glamorous and modern all at once. The texture is soft and plush, giving it a feel of satisfying cosiness.
It is a common misconception that velvet is high maintenance. The Lovely Collection from Warwick, one of our main fabric suppliers, for example, has a thick pile with a super Stain Guard finish which repels water-based liquids. Unlike many plain velvets, Lovely offers an antiqued look. With a matte finish, a subtle printed design and cloudy texture for an authentic aged patina, the antiqued feel of this velvet sets it apart and widens its versatility. The depth of the pile also shows dye really well, resulting in intense, rich tones, Sitting particularly well with leathers in your bedroom furniture and bold patterns in your drapes and cushion covers, it is the perfect choice for a subtle but proud statement headboard..
The collection comes in 36 colours including deep greens and oranges, offering strong jewel tones alongside on-trend pastel velvets for the ultimate colour selection. Soft and warm, Lovely feels as good as it looks. Standing out from other upholstery fabrics, adding depth and definition to the shape of any piece. See the Lovely II colour range here. https://www.warwick.co.uk/qualities/lovely.
Why wait until you need a new bed to change to this beautiful fabric and a new feature colour for your bedroom? We can supply any style of headboard to fit your divan-base and a beautiful corner-pleated valance to cover your divan-base if you'd like to make a change. Just ask us for more details and we'll be delighted to help.
