Does this look alright at the price or would I be better off spending my money elsewhere? Was thinking it looks decent but I'd have to reupholster the chairs in something wipeable or it's just going to get absolutely disgusting, does anyone have any idea how much that would cost/whether it would be worth it? I have no idea really.

Apologies for posting cheap furniture on here, I know you all spend more than this on one dining room chair but I'm doing my best to get by in this post brexit economy and all my friends are even more broke than me and can offer no advice.

Not swayed one way or the other on thermostats…just want the best one and this was cheaper than usual. Is Nest better? I need to control an ufh system and a separate radiator system for the rest of the house.

I think you'll probably need two Nest units.

I've just had Nest installed as I got underfloor heating put in an extension. Told the geezer I wanted one box to control everything and he recommends a Nest.

Doesn't work, he put 3 underfloor zones in so I have a Nest controlling my radiators and 3 crap digital thermostats, one controlling each underfloor zone. Going to get a second opinion to see if it can be done with only one Nest or we'll need two. I'm not getting 4.

Surely your bro must have it all on the one circuit? I thought if you want to create more than one independent zone for heating then you need other thermostats?

Nest is very basic, won't work for your situation saxon as I don't believe it can deal with multiple zones.

DSRs? Why not? I prefer made in USA, Herman Miller, seems more authentic to me but of course Vitra is quality and official/properly speced.

Are yours white? I'd use those "magic eraser" spot cleaning blocks where you break off a piece and just ad some moisture. Leave any white surface pristine (personally used to excellent effect on walls & coffee cups). Thing about modern Eames plastic shell stuff is it's not made of some super fine rare materials or anything, it's hard-wearing ABS and you don't have to treat it with any special care. That follows the basic Ethos of the Eames, they never used rare or expensive materials. Basically you should only be using a wet cloth for normal cleaning.

Got about 1.4k to spend on a sofa.. Looking at www.johnlewis.com/g-plan-vintage-the-sixty-seven-large-sofa/p374634 - is there anywhere else that does sofas in a similar price range that I can also view/sit on before purchasing?

It was just a joke because I was expecting you to say HM, old fiberglass ones in particular, are better…

Anyway, thanks for your suggestion but unfortunately I was more referring to light scratches rather than marks. Wrote it quickly at work and didn't think too much whether the words I used were correct (i'm not native english speaker Smiling )
