Fabulous fabrics make our job fun...

We're enjoying using the exciting new ranges we have in from Harlequin. The wonderful Delphine & Floris collections are giving us great inspiration and at prices that surprised us!!

Delphine captures the heady essence of seasonal days and the frosty beauty of autumn mornings, providing a tranquil elegance and encompassing the allure of an English country garden. The collection is strong in design and highly usable with an eclectic mix of prints with damasks and crewelwork-inspired embroideries.

The non-woven wallpapers in the collection encompass both bold statement papers and smaller designs which can be used on all four walls, thus making a return to smaller scaled motifs, which can be used more extensively without being overpowering.


Interesting schemes can be created by using the prints & embroideries along with the tactile wools in Delphine Wools & Textures. The stylish range of check wool plaids and stripes in unusual but exciting colour combinations could bring warmth & texture into any room.


Floris Embroideries is composed of two designs: Allium, featuring flamboyant, embroidered allium heads and Flora, which depicts delicate flowers with finely detailed petals and stamen. The fine stitchery enhances both designs and gives them a timeless appeal. The collection conjures up the spirit of quintessentially beautiful country gardens and our love for all things horticultural!


We would love to share this beautiful range with you so why not come into the showroom or if you have a room in mind, make an appointment with on of our designers to have a chat about the possibilities!!

It was our pleasure Mrs Lawson...

I have just spoken to Mrs Lawson who called to thank John Dick & Son following the delivery of her new sofas, bedroom furniture, paintings and wall coverings for her new home. When I asked her what in particular impressed her about John Dick & Son she immediately replied, "everything".  She then enthused about the helpfulness of the staff in the showroom and the fact that nothing was too much bother for the delivery men.

Mrs Lawson is moving to a new home and she has purchased several major items from us; when I asked her if she had considered buying furniture on-line she said, "No, it is important to feel and touch furniture to check the quality".  This is something we hear lots of people talk about and, the scale of the furniture is often something that people seem to get caught out with.  Mrs Lawson also added that she prefers to deal with people face to face, especially with major purchases, so that any potential problems can be identified and resolved in person.

During our conversation Mrs Lawson also praised the fact that the delivery drivers turned up at the appointed time (something else you don't get from on-line stores) but, her real praise was reserved for the attitude of the delivery men and their willingness to make sure everything was to her liking before they left - taking all of the packaging materials with them.


Whilst Mrs Lawson didn't use our full interior design service, she did take advice on matching wall coverings to fabrics; a service with which she also expressed her delight.  All in all, Mrs Lawson summed it up by saying, "It was just lovely, a really nice experience and pleasure to find a company that genuinely cares."

Mrs Lawson, the pleasure was all ours and speaking to you earlier today was a "really nice experience", thank you.


The photographs in this blog post are stock images and are representative of the furniture purchased by Mrs Lawson.

Don't be too late...

First of all, we would like to offer our apologies for bringing up the subject of Christmas when we have only just said goodbye to summer. And yes, we know that it is questionable whether we actually had one in the first place. However, we have our reasons, allow us to explain. We often find that our customers leave their plans to redecorate a room or even just purchase a piece of furniture in the lead up to Christmas too late. Christmas is a time for family and all too often the time is spent at home with those who you may not have seen that much throughout the year.




It is at this time many people want their homes to be looking good and so the plans to decorate start in the weeks before Christmas. However, this is far too late and let us explain why. It is not that John Dick & Son are being unhelpful, but rather we are offering a word of advice. If you are planning to purchase a piece of furniture or re do a full room, we would advise you to start planning no later than the end of September.

The reason for this is simply that due to demand being high at this time of year, furniture manufacturers have closing dates for delivery in the lead up to Christmas. Furthermore, we understand that buying a furniture for your home is a big decision and many of our customers like us to come to their houses with samples in order for them to visualize how the furniture will look, meaning the process for choosing, ordering and delivering furniture can take weeks and the last thing we would want is for our customers to be disappointed.


We want to ensure you get what you want and in time for Christmas, therefore, if you are considering new furniture before Christmas, act now. We are happy to help you choose the perfect room set or piece off furniture to add to your home. So please give as a call or arrange to meet us for a coffee and a chat about what you would like and we can ensure you are not disappointed.
