at home with Alfresco

When it comes to choosing furniture there are many things to consider. Comfort, sizing, practicality and style, and one of the things that often defines our choice is the character of the piece. Furniture choices can make or break a room.

If  you are looking for furniture with character you can't go past the Mariner collection. The range offers everything from bookcases, coffee tables and side tables to full library and entertainments units. Made with care and traditional dove tail joinery the Mariner collection is high quality with great attention to detail. Many of the pieces have hidden drawers, secret cupboards and plenty of storage to hide all your little gems.

Each piece is individually hand painted and even the smaller pieces have enough character to really make a room go from something average to something very special. The range is reminiscent of a bygone era, with pieces such as the suitcase coffee table and Bombay box replicas of old traveling wares. The handles and details are made from brass which adds to the character and quality of the piece.

They look great in a dark moody study or to bring a nautical feel to a room. The hardest thing will be deciding which piece to go for!
