HomseDirect365 at the Yorkshire Wedding Sale…

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012

Yorkshire Wedding Sale
We are excited to announce this week that HomesDirect365 will be appearing at this years upcoming Yorkshire Wedding Sale on Sunday the 10th of June! The event is a wedding fayre based around a simple concept; 100+ exhibitors all offering discounted products and services for that one day only.

We will have a stall displaying some of our most popular pieces of furniture and accessories. This is one of our first foray’s into fusing our hand carved furniture with the perfect wedding experience, but we see such a strong correlation between the romance and elegance of our key ranges such as Rococo and La Rochelle and the beauty and tradition of creating the perfect wedding day.

The event will be ticket only, and with marketing and promotion featuring all across the North East via Capital FM, Yorkshire Post, Facebook and much more we anticipate this will be a packed event hall come Sunday 10th June.

If you are interested in joining us there and seeing some of the fantastic items we will have and the amazing one off deals and discounts, tickets can be obtained by visiting or calling 01924 331818. More information on the event can also be found here.

With this being one of the first times we’ve publicly displayed our French furniture in a showroom environment, we are extremely excited and can’t wait!

Our Staff Pick Their Favourites!

Wednesday, October 5th, 2011

Staff Favourites

This week to give a personal touch to the newsletter and give you a glimpse into some of the experienced opinions and thoughts of our staff, we’ve gathered together a brief sample of what each of their favourites are, and why it’s their favourite.

Dealing with the items on a daily basis and having to be versed in all styles of furniture to properly advise our customers, their word carries a little more weight to it than perhaps just a simple product description can. Many of us have various Homes Direct 365 furniture in our own homes, so we do truly stand by the passion we have for the items:

:: Michael ::
Favourite?: Bordeaux Collection
Why?: I love the intricate detailing on the Bordeaux, the bed especially… so much so I bought the BD4 (Bordeaux Double Bed) for my own bedroom at home.

:: Claire ::
Favourite?: RU8 (Romano Mirrored Console Table) / Mirrored Romano
Why?: I prefer a more contemporary and stylish feel. The Romano Mirrored Console table fits perfectly with the theme and feel of my other furniture.

:: Tanya ::
Favourite?: Mirrored Furniture / Victorian Collection
Why?: I think the Mirrored furniture oozes style and sophistication. I own an RU25 (Sorrento Mirrored Dressing Table) but if I had the room space I would absolutely get the RU8 (Romano Mirrored Console Table). I also really like the Victorian collection, and again would buy it if it would all fit into my room.

:: Kim ::
Favourite?: Paris Collection
Why?: I like that The Paris Collection is very elegant and understated in comparison to some of the more elaborate designs.

:: Sue ::
Favourite?: Victorian Collection
Why?: I live in a Victorian house and therefore think the style would be the perfect fit for my home.

:: Stuart ::
Favourite?: La Rochelle Black
Why?: The La Rochelle Black has a chique elegance to it, and I think the photo’s show the range off in a stylish way.

:: Lorraine ::
Favourite?: La Rochelle Silver
Why?: It has the perfect amount of ornate carvings combined with a modern feel. It’s a great combination of antique furniture meets hints of contemporary.

:: Debbie ::
Favourite?: Mirrored Romano / Victorian Collection
Why?: Victorian collection is a classic, traditional and on the verge of antique style but with modern touch. If I had a bigger bedroom I would buy the set.

In the spirit of Flickr and the great enthusiastic responses we get from some of our pleased customers, we’d love to make a folder on there showing off some of your own photographs of our furniture in your home. If you have the La Rochelle collection proudly displayed, take a picture and send it in!

New Government! Hello Mr Cameron

Wednesday, May 12th, 2010

Well, its the end of an era! 13 years worth! So its good-bye Labour, and hello Conservative party! It doesn’t matter what side of the fence you sit on, this election will go down in history as one of the most controversial of recent times! Whether you follow politics or not, you will have found it hard to hear anything but in the last week, and I’m sure there’s plenty more to come in the coming weeks!

David Cameron

David Cameron

I wonder if Mr Cameron, our new Prime Minister as confirmed by Her Majesty herself, is a fan of French furniture? If he will choose to furnish the famous no. 10 Downing Street with classic furniture collections in-keeping with the long, traditional history associated with the property, or try to bring it into the 21st Century (as all politicians seem to claim in their policies!).

We’d love to hear what your stance is on the election, who’s in power, or simply how you think David Cameron will decorate number 10!
