The difference is in the detail...

Happy New Year to all of our blog readers, we hope you all had an enjoyable time over the festive period and that you're looking forward to a busy and prosperous 2013. We look forward to bringing you lots of posts about interior trends, new products and news from John Dick & Son and the Sofa Barn.

If you've been watching television over the Christmas period you'll have found it difficult to avoid the many furniture adverts that have been appearing on your screens.  It occurred to us that there is an enormous variance in price for the 'great deals' the various retailers have on offer.  One advert will promote a 3 seater sofa at an 'incredibly low price of £499' and the very next advert can be another similar looking 3 seater sofa at and 'incredibly low price of £1599'!  What's the difference in these two great deals apart from the obvious £1100 price tag?  The answer is in the quality of the furniture, sofas vary enormously in quality and two pieces that, at first glance, look similar are indeed very different - the difference is in the detail.

We took a quick wander round the showroom with a camera to try and highlight some of the detailing that are tell tale signs of fine quality furniture, we hope you can appreciate from these pictures some of the design elements that make the difference.  If you're looking for a new sofa, take a closer look at the attention to detail and the little extra elements that make a sofa truly special, this same attention to detail is usually reflected in the materials and the build quality - and importantly, in the materials you can't see.



There are two things pictures and TV can't properly represent - the scale of the piece and how comfortable it is to use, for that reason we recommend you come in, kick off your shoes and try them out.  With over 80 sofas and chairs in stock, we're sure you'll find something comfortable and our furniture team will be more than happy to help you choose from literally 1000's of upholstery samples, making sure you get exactly the look, feel and comfort level you want.
