Summer Sale on Furniture Makes it Easier to Redecorate for Less


North Yorkshire, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/22/2011 -- For more than 60 years, Barker and Stonehouse have been the largest independent, family run furniture retailer and online store in the United Kingdom, stocking and selling just about everything anyone could want or need to make a house a home.

This summer, redecorating a home, upgrading furnishings or just adding in a new sofa or other piece of designer furniture is even easier and more economical, thanks to Barker and Stonehouse’s summer sale.

“There are some prices cut online and up to 50 percent off in all eight showrooms,” said company spokesman Christopher Fletcher.

For example, the Whitford Maxi Sofa (Split) is currently on sale for £1699.00, instead of its usual price of £2429.00. Other Whitford sofas are also featured at reduced prices.

“Whitford is an oversized, chunky sofa with stylish, traditional details like buttoned arm detailing and a scatter cushion back,” Fletcher said. “With its signature blend of half fabric and half distressed leather, complete with wooden bun feet this sofa is a definite must-have.”

If a new wardrobe is on the summer wish list, the Inline brand has many selections on sale, including the contemporary ash dark and white glass wardrobe, normally priced at £859.00 and on sale for £599.00.

“Inline is a sliding door wardrobe that remains true to its line,” Fletcher said. “The five panels of the sliding doors can be combined in different colours, allowing you to design your personal striped look.”

Whitford and Inline are two of many high quality brands of designer furniture sold at Barker and Stonehouse. Others include LigneRoset, Natuzzi and Ekornes Stressless as well as British brands like Ercol and Duresta.

“They stock a huge range of the leading designer brands, which aren’t available anywhere else,” Fletcher said, adding that Barker and Stonehouse are a one-stop shop for the home.

“Alongside our designer sofas and wardrobes, we offer exclusive dining ranges, bedroom furniture, bookcases, home office, bar stools, display cabinets, top quality beds, and flooring and rugs of all descriptions,” Fletcher said.

As a bonus, once customers have selected the perfect new piece of contemporary furniture for their home, the company’s expert delivery service will go to work, bringing the new designer furniture to the buyer’s home and then placing it exactly where the customer wants it to go. The delivery crew will even unbox the new items and take away the packaging materials.
