Creating our upholstered beds

I went to visit our upholsterers today, based in Northumberland I took the train from London and made the journey up to where all our upholstery is made. The building is a beautiful big stone house, where everything is made lovingly by hand using all British materials.

The skilled craftsmen make it seem so easy, from cutting the wood, scoring the fabric, sewing, pinning and buttoning, the amount of work that goes into making one of our beds is truly amazing....

Sleep Tips

As sleep lovers, we are always interested learning about how to get the perfect sleep – all night every night. After investing in your ultimate mattress here are some tips to help you sleep soundly… Prepare yourself for sleep by indulging in a good book, listening to relaxing music, having a bath with lavender or lighting a scented candle. It is essential to avoid big meals, brandies and espressos before bedtime. Instead try a chamomile tea or Horlicks for something much more soothing. Really indulge in silk or bushed cotton PJ’s (I love this pair from Hush) a hot water...
