What you mean "actually?" 'course it's decent.

Can anyone recommend recliner chairs? US, UK or AU design, I don't fit into the Eames recliner lengthways (6'2"). I like the Robin Day stuff but don't know any stockists? Do they even make it anymore?

Fallback is a Muji recliner. Pretty comfy.

Thanks

We bought bathroom floor tiles from Topps Tiles and wall tiles from Tileflair. Topps have decent offers on from time to time, the floor tiles we wanted were half price when we bought them.

Porcelain Superstore had some decent stuff but we didn't end up going with them. Also looked at CTD.

If you find a tile you like double check if the manufacturer has their own website. The kitchen tiles by British Ceramic Tile we wanted were cheaper direct from them than from any retailer we found. Although I see they're now in administration so they maybe should've been charging more….

I’ve used all of the above before. Bert and May are really good and have a refurb/discount section where you can usually pic up a decent deal. All of the above are encaustic tiles which means all handmade. The thing with the high street tile companies are that they are digitally printed and therefore you end up with repeated sections. Hand painted just means they’ll all individual. If you speak to Popham and Marrakech they let you go to Marrakech and watch your tiles being painted Cool

If you go with a high street tile company though speak to your ruler and they’ll have a discount card so get them to buy them for you. Can save between 30-40%.

Thanks everyone for the advice, lots to check out.
I think anything that involves going abroad to view their creation is going to be out of our price range sadly but good to get ideas.

Anyone know where to get anything like this desk from in the UK? Be looking at over £3k to import it from the US with the accessories I’d need, which is quite a bit over my budget.
