Maid to last
Country-style kitchens and Victoriana have been interior staples for years now, and now The Domestic Paraphernalia Company has brought an iconic ‘appliance’ of days-gone-by once again to the fore. The Sheila Maid is the quintessential Victorian airer-dryer – and has really taken off of late as it replaces electricity guzzling tumble driers. Beautiful in its simplicity and functionality – I wonder why we ever got rid of them in the first place! And readers can exclusively claim 10 per cent off all Sheila Maids. To claim, enter discount code LONS10 when shopping at http://www.sheilamaid.com
A bit of all white
Antique furniture has always been popular, but heavy mahogany pieces just don’t fit in with many modern lives or homes. So Painted Wooden Furniture has come up with a solution. Set up by an ex-antique dealer who noticed people don’t really like ‘brown’ furniture anymore, the company transforms unloved and unwanted ugly ducklings into gorgeous swans like this 19th Century French Chest (pictured). It also offers to paint items you already own in any one of its antique paint effect colours. A great way to save money and the environment! Have a look at www.paintedwoodenfurniture.co.uk for details.
Me old china
Everyone likes to put their own stamp on a function or party – but as rule, quirkiness comes at a price. Not so when ordering from Vintage Touch… Set up by a bride disgruntled at the lack of vintage tableware available for her own wedding, the company now hires out all manner of gorgeous vintage crockery at suitably old-fashioned prices. Tea-cups and saucers are just £1.20 each, Plates start at just 30p and crockery a mere ten pence. It delivers nationwide – so what more excuse do you need to throw a party?! See www.vintagetouch.co.uk for details.
A kitchen classic
Family-run Classic Kitchens has been supplying quality fitted kitchens at sensible prices for twenty-one years this month. And to celebrate receiving ‘the key to the door’, it is offering you the key to a beautiful yet affordable kitchen, thanks to a 21 per cent discount on its entire range of units.
It stocks around 50 different kitchen collections, including traditional farmhouse style kitchens, sleek, modern high-gloss creations and pretty much everything in between. And because it is an independent retailer, it has access to - and can source - many more products and lines than chains that are tied into contracts, meaning you are much more likely to find exactly what you are looking for.
On top of this generous birthday present of 21 per cent off, Classic Kitchens is also offering 50 per cent off all granite work surfaces for the first 21 customers to order. To claim, just mention this column when calling 0208 503 4498, Or pop into the showroom. For directions and details visit www.classic-kitchens.ltd.uk or email at email@example.com. Both offers end 27 September 08.
High design and low prices don’t tend to go hand in hand. But Fantastic Furniture’s top-quality reproduction “Barcelona” is affordable and true to the original design. One of the company’s perennial best sellers, it pays testament to the enduring popularity of iconic design.
Following the original classic as closely as possible, it features 12mm polished steel and a full Italian Leather, hand-stitched upholstery created from individual pieces of a single hide, to create a consistent finish.
And for one week only, Fantastic Furniture is offering readers the "Barcelona" chair for just £395 instead of the recommended £795, with the “Barcelona” footstool (worth over £200) thrown in for free. It’s available in black, white or dark brown leather. Delivery is available to any UK mainland address for £45.
