Lockdown 2.0 – Here we go again!November 13:11:20
As the year draws to a close, we are faced with yet another lockdown and more uncertainty. This year has been tough and we have spent more time than we expected in our homes. Therefore, it is really important that we take the time to look after ourselves and our homes over the next few weeks or months.
Here at Fire & Co we remain open in order to serve you as best as we can with everything from Interactive Design Appointments to DIY essentials to heating and plumbing spare parts.
Can’t get into the Showroom? Our new Interactive Design Appointments allow you to book an appointment over Zoom/Facetime with one of our Interior Stylists so that we can advise you on the best pieces for you, and answer any of your design queries.
As well as your home looking fabulous, it is important that it is functional too. Perhaps you are back working from home? Or you need some extra storage to house all of the kid’s toys that are needed to entertain them indoors over the next few weeks. Maybe you want to update your sofa or bed as these have quickly become your ‘soft office’. Whatever your needs we have a range of stylish and functional pieces in the showroom to suit.
Look for items that can be doubled up for other uses. No room for a desk? Why not update your dining room table so that you can set up for work during the day and swap over for dinner entertainment in the evening. Or perhaps you need a coffee table with storage so that those work papers can be put away and out of sight once 5 pm hits! We love the Saltash, El, Warwick, and Vibe coffee tables which you can find on our website. Did we mention that they are perfect for resting a glass of wine on too…!
A footstool is a great option for an extra seat around the tv or with an ottoman footstool you also get the added benefit of more storage.
If you do have space for a desk, the El desk and the Lulworth desk are great options if you want something on the smaller size. The Stage desk is perfect for those who have lots of bits and bobs that need storing on a busy work station.
Struggling with space in general? Benches are a great option around a table instead of chairs as they can be neatly tucked away out of sight. The London bench is a great leather option that is not only practical but stylish too.
Don’t forget to make your space appealing and one that provides all the comforts that you need. As ever we have a great range of soft furnishings in store to keep you cosy so why not treat yourself to a new set of cushions or a throw so that the little ones can snuggle up on the sofa with you and have some much-needed chill time.
Why not opt for faux or dried flowers to help bring a little of the outside in and lift your mood; we have a range of beautiful vases in store and online.
When you are decorating, think about light and space. Mirrors are a great way to add the illusion of space, and lighting helps to soften areas, giving you that much needed cosy feel. We have a range of table and floor lamps throughout the showroom for you to take a look at.
During this time it is important that we all stick together and be kind to one another. If we can help with your design and interior needs, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
