    What an amazing furniture company

    I dont know if you are aware of this, but there is an amazing furniture company that advertises its wares on TV. I think that they are wonderful, because unlike other companies they only have sales once a week, 52 weeks per year. I really don't understand how they can produce items at this quality level and cost. 50% off is cheap at half the price Id say.
    After some research I have found that they aim at being environmentally friendly as possible, thus they are determined never to endanger forests around the world, but fill the unseen areas of their products with reconstituted sawdust. Also, they promise to continue to use actors worthy of their obvious skills. It is highly likely that they own shares in pharmaceutical companies, so if you reach for the aspirin when you hear their well chosen songs, all the better.
    The guarantee offered is sure to tempt the discerning buyer, for they promise, if you furniture fails within twelve months, they will replace it with a product of equal quality. What more could you ask for? As you shell out your hard earned case, remember that the furniture you are buying is perceived to endure at least one bounce from your pet hamster.


    PS. I have purposely refrained from using any company's name, just in case they are offended at this estimation of their products.

    What a totally meaningless statement! Is this the one they were done for?

    Started off light, but it did not look to great. It is now a mid-mahogany colour. The stain was Peruvian Mahogany with Light Oak varnish to highlight the grain.

    Sounds good - post a pic when you've got the time. ( I'm quite surprised that it didn't look great light!)

    I can't see what the slogans say - not much wrong (legally) with 'Sofa King low' I assume - were they done just for being embarrassing?

    Thanks - excellent like that and it seems to fit in with the rest of the furniture better than light might. I am very impressed.
    Have you got another project under-way yet?

    I remember loooking last year in one DFSCS store and the salesman slagging off Land of Plastic (his words) next shop down.

    No. I didn't get it AND I had to follow your instructions out loud to get it then !!:oops:
    Any way, what's the point of that when the most likely potential purchasers won't even get it??

    I am going to make two lamp tables for beside the sofa (not a DFS one) in the same style but if only one drawer. I suppose they'll be about a 16 inch square.

    Sounds good. I wouldn't bother with the lamps though - they get in the way of the wine glasses!!

    LOL. It'll have to be room for the coffee cups for me! Seriously though, I can't stand bright lights, so have table lamps dotted around. I only realised a few weeks ago that we had the same light bulbs in the ceiling lights for the past twenty years! We hardly turn them on.
