Any Open House recommendations? Mean to do it every year
Thinking of heading down to the Walter Segal houses on the 21st

I think the title of the talk is: "Vitsoe, how we sell the same shit as HM, but at a lower spec with a higher price, to Eurotrash idiots."

Any recommendations for fitted wardrobes? Or even wardrobes in general?
Looked at building a pax with some custom front bits, but that looked like it was gonna run about 1.5 so id rather spend a bit extra for a proper job.

Can anyone point me in the right direction for general furniture websites/shops? Getting a house and will be needing sofas, chairs, tv stand, tables etc.
Not wanting to spend the Earth and pretty clueless so any recommendations/advice would be appreciated.

High end check
My most used are probably Heals.com and John Lewis heals do a wide range from there own lines to high end not the cheapest but decent also John Lewis do a lot of good quality stuff at decent prices, usually have some kind of sale or discount and do high end stuff as well.
Sofa workshop and arlo Jacobs do decent quality sofas also sofa sofa are supposed to be decent
Made.com better quality than IKEA and Habita, was cheap but the prices seem to be creaping up
If your in the North redbrick mill in battly is worth a look
Heals and John Lewis are a good place to start if your after something specific give me a shout

I definitely wouldn't say Made is better quality than IKEA or Habitat.
Made is masquerading as affordable 'quality' when most of it is shite.

John Lewis have 20% off homeware that ends today, includes Hay and Vitra (in-stock items only)
We bought most stuff, especially electronics and white goods, from John Lewis because their customer service is second to none.
Bought our sofa from Sofa.com and they were faultless, with order and delivery.
We purchased some small items from Habitat, but the quality you get for the price is very poor. Certainly not the same Habitat from 10 years ago.
Dining chairs, lounge chair and bar stools from Hay. Bought a La Palma dining table from Nunido (German version of Nest). Only trouble is, is the 6 week wait you have to go through with items like these #firstworldproblems
We have a new bed from Ikea, because surprisingly they were the only ones that had decent looking beds that weren’t upholstered in any way.
Agreed on Made. They’re very good at stylising their items online but in person the quality isn’t great.

Which lounge chair did you get from HAY, always liked the look of the about a lounge chair on a swivel base but never found it to be that comfortable.

Any recommendations for blackout curtains? Looking for a dark grey colour.
The new flat I've moved into has lots of light coming across from the next building and the curtains in the bedroom at the moment do nothing to combat it. Now the mornings are darker, it's gotten worse.
I was just going to grab a pair from John Lewis but reviews don't seem that great.
