Lovely new Oak frame Futons

Just a quickie blog to let you know our lovely new Oak Futons are now in stock. These great quality futon sofa beds are using solid Oak timber for the arms and supporting areas that is free of the finger jointed timber commonly found on budget rubberwood futon sofa beds from certain high street supermarkets and catalogue stores!! The sleeping and sitting platforms are slatted with mature pine timber for strength and good ventilation to support the (Devon made) futon mattress.
The models now available in Oak are the Cavendish Oak 3 Seat Futon the Cavendish Oak 2 Seat Futon the Akino Oak 2 Seat Futon and the Akino Oak 3 Seat Futon and all are in stock for quick delivery.

Futon Beds and Glamping.

Glamping? I know you're thinking what has that got to do with Futon Beds? Well, over the last few years we've supplied our Futon Beds and Futon Sofa Beds into some great camping environments. 'Glamping' is the name given to, er, 'posh' camping! This includes Yurts, Bell Tents, Safari Tents and basically any traditional canvass tents which are made lovely and cosy with soft furnishings, often wooden floors and comfy beds or sofabeds. 
This lovely glamping site in Snowdonia has used our Osaka Futon Beds in their traditional Bell Tents and, as you can see from the picture, they look great and suit this style of camping perfectly.
For further information on our futon beds follow the links in this posting and, of course, if you fancy a glamping trip in Snowdonia follow the link below:

Google Rankings...go to page two to support independent businesses!

I'm sure that many of you have noticed the recent invasion of page one of Google organic listings and how the 'big boys' of business have started to take this page over?
Google Search used to be the one place that you could seek out alternative and different products and information from independent sources and retailers without having to conform to the ideas and profit driven motives of the multi-national chains but this now seems to be fading away as these companies have stepped up their manipulation of Google's search criteria. Do we really need to be told of the existence of Tesco and Argos, isn't the reason we're using Google in the first place to avoid them?
Well, if you want to support smaller, independent, businesses the do what I do...skip to page two! Better still, let Google know, tell them you preferred the old results, do something before the internet becomes just a virtual out-of-town retail park!!

Futons, Futons, Futons at Futons247...we have the lot!

Today's 'ultra quick' posting is just to remind you all out there in 'Google Browser' land that we have a great selection of futon sofa beds and mattresses with rapid delivery through the UK and Ireland and especially for you lovely people in London who really seem to appreciate the benefits of great quality futon furniture.

Oriental room divider screens, a great addition to any room.

With Spring just around the corner (fingers crossed!) this is the start of the time of year when we'll be spending more time in sunnier parts of the house such as a conservatory or sun room. If you're looking to add a bit of privacy why not have a look at our range of Oriental room divider screens which make a great addition to many rooms in the house.
I know from conversations with customers that these screens are great for dividing off area's of a room such as separating a desk / work area, a dressing area or kitchen space as well as making a great privacy screen for, as previously mentioned, a conservatory or a large window area.
We also seem to send many of these Oriental Screens to businesses as well, such as beauty and nail bars, restaurants and health clubs to name just a few.
We also now have a range of Decorative room divider screens which actually not only make a great room divider but are lovely decorative items in themselves. Anyway, if you have any questions please feel free to contact us through our website or via the blog.
