Reckon you need a pro to do it unless you are very handy with electrics and boilers

Yea I wasn't in when the guy came to install but don't think you need it unless you need to hide wires or a gap at the back.
Will try remove it when I work out how easy it is to take off Puzzled

Need some help please guys, in the process of getting a new flat and need some furniture.
Want a grey/white marble/slate 80cm-ish round dining table with a metal or white base, anyone seen one around? Saw one on John Lewis but it had horrible reviews.
Also want to get 4 eames dsr chairs in mauve grey to go with it, cheapest place to get hold of them?

I've heard from other Euros that importing Herman Miller is actually cheaper than going with Vitra over there.

I'd proxy/forward from YLiving with Shipitto.

Downunder we can source both locally, but Herman Miller is more available/you can haggle the price between importers.

HM can be cheaper on expensive pieces, lounge chair especially.
Vitra's DSx are quite cheap at around 150-160 gbp.

Edit: MOHD has very competitive price on most of the stuff.
DSR are on sale at the moment, and you can get an extra discount if you register to their newsletter, also their shipping fees are reasonable and the service is amazing.
