• Best-selling Bianco II white extending table

    The star of the video above is the Bianco II extending table - click for price and size information.

    Our Bianco dining table began life after many of our customers asked us for a white extending dining table. It was a pub conversation with my friend Vicki that finally pushed us to the drawing board. She had searched everywhere for a white table that extended and couldn't find one that was still good quality. So we consulted with our wonderful table makers and came up with a system where the leg section moves, so everybody gets a good seat. Voila - the Bianco II extending table was born. more...


  • Do people really hate televisions?

    Probably not. But so many of us do hate bulky TV units. They are getting larger and brasher, more hi-tec and louder. Not exactly something you want in a central place in your living room. The pressure to get bigger and better screens is turbo-driven by the World Cup and Wimbledon, as demonstrated by Dixon's recent announcement of surging TV sales.

    Gone are the days when a modest TV can be disguised next to your plants on an alcove bookshelf. These days it's more likely to have replaced that painting you loved on your living room wall. Once every four years this might look like a thing of beauty as it shows in high definition detail the curling free kick that wins England the World Cup (ahem), but what about the rest of the time?

    The idea of enclosing your television in a large cupboard often makes the situation worse. Do you really have room for a monstrous wardrobe in your living room?

    Forget surround-sound, there is only one response. Surround-style. Make sure your new TV is accompanied by beautiful furniture and aesthetically pleasing accessories.

    We offer a wide of range of TV units. These can support the heaviest box or sit stylishly under wall mounted units. They can incorporate flip down doors, shelves or drawers. Large or small, oak or teak. All with contemporary designs and made from solid materials - no veneer or plastics here! Then add vases, picture frames, plants or objects you love to soften the look of the TV.

    Lead times are quick, and your new TV unit will last through many World Cups to come. They'll give you more pleasure than watching England too! View all of our lovely tv units. more...

  • How To Have your Wooden Coffee Table Looking its Best

    If, like me, you have spent time choosing your wooden coffee table, you want to show it off at its best. How do you do that? If you put lots of reading material on your table then that is likely to distract people from the main purpose of a coffee table- to socialise. Do you really want someone looking at your copy of “101 Gangster Films To See Before You Die” for the next 30 minutes while everyone else is discussing how nice your oak, teak, walnut or ash coffee table looks? A chum of mine has a set of those fiendishly difficult metal puzzles and seems to have one out for each day of the week. But again, it’s a distraction from social intercourse and unless everyone joins in it’s a dead-end. more...


  • How to Arrange your Large Dining Table

    Just as for most people, the bed is the main piece of furniture in the bedroom; the dining table is the centre and chief focus of the dining room. Even when not in use, a wooden one-piece large dining table with matching chairs is an imposing if not arresting sight. It should be treated with respect and given its own space, not shoved up against a wall, in my view. It should dominate the dining room with its imposing presence, and that’s why I would always splash out as much as I could afford on a quality wooden large dining table. It should last you a lifetime. And if you have to downsize in later life- give it to one of your children so that it may grace their home- a regular family heirloom!

  • Who's afraid of colour?

    Could it be that the British are shaking off their famous chromophobia? As a nation stereotypically characterised as being terrified of colour you might expect our dining rooms to be dull monochrome spaces with matching dining sets doing their best to evade notice in the darkest stains we can find. If the success of our new Spectrum range is anything to go by this couldn't be further from the truth. more...


  • How to Prepare for and Position your Extendable Dining Table

    I came across a certain degree of snobbishness when discussing extendable dining tables. There’s a long standing view that a dining table should be large, solid, and fixed to the same spot in the dining room (or whatever room you eat in) all the time- as a sort of statement that this is where we/I/the family eat. That may be, but when there’s just you at the table, or maybe just one or two others, it’s not a great use of space is it? If you are lucky enough to have sufficient rooms and sufficient space then by all means go for a non-extendable dining table. more...
