It's not all about furniture...

Although we like to think that we know all about furniture, we do know that it's not all about furniture!

At John Dick & Son we have an extensive range of soft furnishing, ornaments, artwork, mirrors, clocks and lamps. These "accent" pieces are the things that finish a room off; the things that change the look and feel of your room as demonstrated by Sally Dick in her last video.

Moreover, they make great gifts; if you've got a house party to attend over the festive season or, maybe a Christmas wedding, you will find a massive selection of suitable gifts at John Dick & Son. Or, if you want to club together and buy something more substantial you can purchase one of our gift vouchers or, John Dick & Son can manage a Gift List for you.

In this short video Managing Director, Bruce Dick talks about "accent" pieces and how the team at John Dick & Son can assist you to choose the right thing, whether for yourself or, as a gift.

How to change the look and feel of your room...

We're delighted to announce the latest of our interior design video tips with Sally Dick.  In this video Sally demonstrates exactly what can be done to change the look and feel of a room just by changing soft furnishings such as cushions, tie-backs, lamps and ottomans.

The interesting thing about this video is just how much you can change the overall look using the same suite in each set.  Sally takes us through what she has done in three different sets which all use the same wall coverings and suite but, they all look and feel entirely different.  So, you could adopt some of these tips to make seasonal changes or to freshen up an otherwise "tired" room without incurring too much expense.
