Beautiful wood, oak bar stool

Beautiful wood, oak bar stool

It's no secret that Danetti is known for its design-led, cutting edge modern furniture. We love chairs in bright molded plastics, huge modular sofas, glass tables with chrome legs, and statement bench seating. We actually think most of these pieces can be easily incorporated into any interior scheme, modern or more traditional, and will add a designer look wherever they are placed. But if your tastes are more traditional, and you would rather a wooden bar stool to a plastic one any day, and if you like your tables to be made from real wood as well, then we can help. We've tracked down pieces that we think are timelessly stylish, with some modern features.

For instance, there's our hugely popular oak bar stool (above). This little gem is one of our best sellers and it's easy to see why. The sturdy wooden frame and seat make it a piece that you could have for generations to come - and it will never look out of date for the simple reason that it's got a timeless appeal. The Russi sofa (left) is another item that's a bit of a classic and would look right at home in a traditional living room - it's perfect for families to lounge around on. These items are perfect if you want to create a cosy home, full of natural materials, and accessories like throws and cushions. Just call us on 0844 804 2222 if you would like advice on styling a more traditional home.

Creating a love nest at home

Green modular sofa

The Soho sofa from Danetti is perfect for cosy nights in

As the working week draws to a close, everybody at Danetti is thinking about heading home for the weekend. The weather's so cold and windy, most of us are just planning to hibernate for the next 60-something hours until Monday morning comes calling. This set us thinking about how important it is that our homes are comfortable, cosy places where we can snuggle up. It's even more relevant because Valentine's Day is approaching. Great furniture can really transform your property into a home, give you a sense of belonging and of permanence. If you keep buying basic, flimsy flat-pack furniture then you're unlikely to create a particularly welcoming home. At Danetti, we're passionate about the quality of our furniture (you can tell by the fact that we advertise many of our products as suitable even for commercial use that we are very confident of our quality). So what do you need to create a love nest at home that's so welcoming you'll never want to go out? First off, you'll need an amazing sofa. Don't opt for one that's too small or too structured, go for something that you and your partner can sink into while watching a film, and one that's good for lounging about on. Next, make sure your home feels ordered by investing in great storage. If you're looking around thinking you need to clean up then it'll make you unsettled. Large multi-purpose cabinets and sideboards are best, as they can house different types of things, from books to bed linen.

You'll also need a dining table. Too many of us have become fans of TV dinners so a formal table starts to seem unnecessary, but it's essential if you and your partner or family are going to have proper conversations without interruptions from Eastenders! Buy comfortable dining chairs to match the table so you won't quickly be dashing off to wash up - instead you'll want to stay around the table chatting. For your home to seem extra cosy, it's great if you can create informal relaxing areas where you can chill out, maybe read magazines or listen to music. If your home is lacking an area like this, then clear a corner of a room, or the spare bedroom and fill it with soft, comfortable, low cube seating. We have lots of choice at Danetti. So there you go, your home will become a place to chill out as a couple away from the rat race. If you've created a relaxing environment at home with the use of Danetti products, we'd love to hear from you. Email us at customerservices@danetti.com.
