Hugh’s News – June 2014

Fairtrade Furniture at Blenheim…


We are excited to be returning to Blenheim Palace this weekend for its second Flower Show. This a great show which offers an attractive alternative to the RHS garden shows, set in the most beautiful parkland, and also offering a fine opportunity to visit this historic palace as well. The show runs Friday to Sunday 10am to 5.00pm.

We are offering to refund the show ticket price for anyone who places an order with us this weekend. The on-the-day price per adult for Palace, Park and Gardens is £21.50, so hurry along now! Take advantage of our show prices and this ticket refund offer (up to two adults per order).

If you are unable to get to Blenheim, there are still plenty of other shows we will be going to this summer, starting with the Royal Norfolk next week… but you can see the full list here.

Garden PlanShow preview

There’s plenty to see and do at Blenheim this year: a magnificent floral pavilion is the centre piece, with 7 innovative show gardens, floral art and competitions, plus talks from 5 excellent presenters: Monty Don, Joe Swift, Frances Tophill, Charlie Dimmock and Tommy Walsh.

That’s not to mention touring the spectacular grounds and visiting the historic palace…

Semarang ChairWe ourselves have a large stand this year (M40-41) in the Shopping Arcade. We’ll be featuring the whole of our tsantai collection with some exciting new fabrics and colours, plus a couple of intriguing new products. We are keen to get your feedback. So come and relax in our feelgood chairs, and bring a friend; the more the merrier!

Shown here is an exciting new fabric on our flagship product the Semarang asymmetrical chair. It’s called Sarawak Pear, and comes in 8 colourways: perfect in a modern garden room!

Semarang CabinetSpecial Offer on Cabinet

We have for once got a little stock of our Semarang cabinet and are therefore putting it on offer at a special price of £250 including delivery (UK mainland). The normal price is £310, so that’s a very tidy saving of £60.

The cabinet has two doors which open from the centre and fold back on themselves, leaving an excellent storage space inside, plus of course a very useful and attractive surface on top.

This offer is only available until the end of June, so if you are tempted please let us know asap by phone (01722 340882) or email. If you want to buy online – use this promotional code in the shopping basket: WVB1J3CUB8


Did you know we can send you swatches of any of our fabrics?

We find this is much the best way to decide on a fabric for your chairs or sofas… you really need to see the fabric in the room where the furniture is going to be located. Swatches help you check that the fabric will look right with your flooring, your walls and curtains, and any other furniture you may have in place.

It’s a free service! Just let us know what you want and we will do the rest. Just bear in mind that the best place to make an initial selection is at a show where you can see the whole range in the flesh. But if you know what you want, send us an email.

And finally…

Don’t forget we have our showroom here in Salisbury, and we are always delighted to see people any day of the week, within reason! Salisbury makes an excellent day out, and we are happy to point out the best places to visit or stay if you want to make a weekend of it. Please note: we do ask you to ring or email to make an appointment.
