The Williamson WOW factor


We were very excited by the arrival of the latest Osborne & Little collection into our design studio and couldn’t wait to share it with you all.

If the “Wow Factor” is what you crave then look no further! The stunning new collection “Eden” is by well known designer Matthew Williamson who is renowned for his signature aesthetic; a master of print, embellishment, attention to detail and a kaleidoscope of colour. Having celebrated 15 years in fashion last year Williamson’s love of colour, pattern and texture has now been successfully fused with Osborne & Little’s savoir faire in furnishings to give stunning results.

Within the two pattern books lie enviable fabrics and wallpapers in unique designs and breathtaking colours!






The Pegasus fabric depicts a majestic winged horse in a scrolling silk and linen mix damask with a bold edge in a contrasting flash of colour. Empress displays an ornate knot motif brought to life in an elaborate embroidery with velvet. Cheetah and Ocelot provide sumptuous, textured co-ordinates reminiscent of sleek feline coats.



Make art of your walls with show stopping wall coverings such as peacock and sunbird and if you’re feeling wild, maybe a touch of Tyger Tyger wouldn’t go a miss! Peacock displays Williamson’s signature motif which is given an exotic edge with the use of tiny beads, in stark contrast Tyger Tyger features a magnificent stalking tiger in holographic foil and jewel tones.





So why not treat your home to a touch of decadence using the striking fabrics and wallpapers or if you would rather a slightly more subtle touch of glamour why not add some ready made cushions from the impressive collection available along side Eden. A perfect way to make a bold statement without shouting about it!
  • Fabrics available from £65.00 Per Metre.
  • Wallpaper available from £52.00 Per Roll.
  • Cushions available from £90.00 Each.

We need to make space, perhaps you can help...


You may have noticed recent social media posts have mentioned our recent buying trips and some of the great furniture that we managed to buy.  Many of these pieces were purchased based on the fantastic feedback we managed to get from our customers who managed along to our special weekend in September.

The new stock we bought is starting to arrive in the showroom on almost a daily basis and that's creating a problem for us - we need to create space!

In order to make room for all of the great new stock we are having a clearance sale and we're launching it to our blog readers and Facebook fans first.  If you know anyone who is looking for a genuine bargain on high quality furniture please share this post with them, they really are good deals.

We have 2 and 3 seater sofas, corner sofas, leather sofas, chairs and snugglers all on display in the showroom and available on a first come first serve basis.  Here is a selection of some of the stock we have available.













Please use the share buttons on the top or bottom of this post to tell others in your online community about these bargains, there's a good chance you'll know someone that will appreciate them.

The Press reminds us its not all sofas and chairs...


We thought we'd share some recent press coverage with you here on the blog. Surprisingly, the coverage is not all about our sofas and chairs - with over 80 in stock it's understandable that we get lots of newspapers and magazines featuring our range.

The cuttings we're sharing here are about some of the other things we have on offer in the showroom.  Firstly, the Sunday Herald did an article at the time of the birth of the royal baby where they explored how the Royal nursery might look.  We were happy to contribute to the article and mention the beautiful range of nursery tales fabrics and wall coverings by Jane Churchill.  We have a full range of sample books for this range in the showroom.

The next piece of coverage we're featuring was in No.1 Magazine when one of our clocks was featured.  We have a fabulous selection of these trendy large scale clocks that are proving to be very popular with our customers.  We do tend to focus on the larger furniture pieces in most of our promotional material but it is worth bearing in mind we have a large selection of mirrors, lamps, wall art and ornaments - many of these make ideal wedding and house warming gifts.

Finally, it's almost impossible to escape the coverage we get for our chairs and sofas so we've picked one to feature here.  You will have seen details of our new Fama range in previous blog posts and it's nice to see the press taking an interest in it too.  The range has been extremely successful for us already with lots of orders for this fantastically well designed high quality furniture from Spain.

The Herald featured the Fama Moon Chair; as you can see, it is as beautiful as it is flexible, a real joy to look at and to relax in.  We have a special showroom dedicated to the Fama range and the best way to appreciate the quality and the comfort is to come in and try it out.  We'll even provide a coffee so that you can really relax and enjoy the experience.

You'll also notice The Herald featured an old favourite - The Kittoch Chair. Available in any tartan, it remains one of the most popular chairs that we stock and perhaps made a little more famous this year by Dame Helen Mirren! READ MORE

Our refurbished showroom is well and truly open but we're not resting on our laurels...


Two weeks ago we celebrated the reopening of our refurbishment of the showroom with a special weekend for our customers and we would like to thank everyone who came along to see what we've done.  Over 700 of you managed to pop in and see us and it was a pleasure to see each and every one of you.  We were especially pleased with the response to the changes and the wonderful complimentary comments we received about the range of furniture we have to offer.

However, at John Dick & Son we don't rest on our laurels so we've already been away on another shopping trip to buy new stock for the showroom.  The trip was perhaps made a little easier because we had the chance to speak so many of you about what you like and the type of furniture you're looking for.  We think we have selected pieces that will be a hit with our customers and we invite you to come in and see them for yourself.


The current trends are for strong, bold and contrasting colours in a mixture of fabrics.  Beautifully textured velvets are blended with patterned fabrics, tweed and leather used together are the perfect combination and bold stripes are complimented by cushions in strong contrasting colours.

  
We took some snap shots during the trip which will give you an idea of what to expect but the best way to appreciate the quality, detail, comfort and splendour of the furniture is to come in and see it for yourself.



Pre Christmas Deliveries
It's also worth mentioning that we're getting near the cut-off date for pre Christmas deliveries, we'll be announcing more about this in the next few days however, the general advice is to get your order in as soon as possible if you would like to have your new pieces for the festive season.
