Homes come in all different shapes and sizes, and as house prices rise there’s a very good chance that when I move it will be to a small place so I need a furniture range that caters to that. With Bensons for Beds Bespoke Collection and Harvey‘s new Ashley Manor you can truly customise your home no matter the space and if you live in a smaller house you don’t need to compromise on style.
Personally the most important piece of furniture for me is the bed, as sleep is such an important aspect of life especially to your health. The Bespoke Collection is a range of luxurious handmade beds from the UK, exclusively for Bensons for Beds by Staples Beds, and you can truly personalise every element of your bed to have your own perfect place to rest and relax.
Starting with the mattress you can choose between a range of sizes, comfort ratings, colour options and natural fillings. The fillings include wool, cashmere, silk, pashmina, alpaca wool, bamboo or the exclusive super soft Supima cotton, and all work in harmony with the Staples pocket spring system which has added strength, durability, support and comfort.
When choosing the size of bed to go for go up a size if possible as a larger bed will give you more space to enjoy an undisturbed sleep. If like me you struggle with the lack of storage in your room you should consider adding storage to your with a selection of drawers in your Bespoke divan or by getting an ottoman base. There are three different drawer configurations, as well as a cavernous ottoman divan option and you can choose a firmer platform top or a softer sprung edge comfort option.
There are a range of fabric options for the divan bases, and also the headboards and complementary bedroom furniture so you can stick to a particular theme in your room. The bed photographed above has the Knightsbridge headboard, one of nine designs which come in eleven upholstery colours, and I just love the dainty little silver edging that it has.
As we are officially in a digital age, and most of us can’t handle being away from our phones for too long, it’s not surprising that the world has moved with the times and Bensons have created some revolutionary pieces for the modern smart phone user.
I’m always stumbling around in the dark trying to find my phone to turn off the alarm because it’s on the phone somewhere out of my reach. This would no longer be a problem for me with the amazing Bergamo, the new revolutionary charging headboard. The Bergamo offers users unique USB charging portals on either side of the headboard, is finished in Artemis Light Grey, and prices start at £399.99.
The other option for the modern tech lover is the industry leading, REVIVE wireless charging bedside cabinet which comes in a sleek, stylish and contemporary look in both white and grey. No searching for your charger as all you need to do is place your phone on the charge spot and watch it charge. If your phone emits a light when charging it can have a negative effect on your sleep but the charging cabinet has Patent Pending technology that means no ambient light can disturb your sleep.
Moving on to the living room Harveys has got you covered with their new Ashley Manor EDIT collection, comprising of compact, modular furniture that lets you make the most out of your home space. All their products are hand-crafted and made in Britain, using fashion forward fabrics and lively on trend colours. There’s a selection of seasonal colour trends from mustard yellows and emerald greens to stand-out teal and dark charcoal.
My favourite piece from the new collection has to be the Edit Love Seat, a gorgeous intimate seat that can cosily fit two or as pictured yourself on it how I did, sprawled across it wrapped in my mermaid blanket and blogging the day away with Netflix playing in the background. Pictured above you’ll see it in the Sundance fabric in the shade Clementine but it is available in three different fabric types and 14 different colours. I also really like the Love Seat in the Luxor fabric in the shade Aubergine.
They have a wide range of footstools in the new range, including a storage footstool, so you have the option of giving yourself more storage options without taking up too much space and you can use them as additional seating when you have guests over. Aside from the storage footstool, which is a square shape, the rest of the footstools come in an array of shapes including hexagons, ovals, drums and square so you could pick and choose between them and you have the option to stick with the fabric you have chosen for your sofas or mix and match with the extra colours available.
Both brands have got an amazing range of products and try to cater for all sizes and styles of homes. I would definitely encourage you to have a look on their websites if you are planning on buying any furniture, and they both currently have sales on too. Has anything caught your eye from either of the new ranges from Bensons for Beds and Harveys Furniture, and what do you look for when purchasing home furnishings?
