Definitely go taledakt if you can find someone to do it. I'm trying to find someone to come and do it in Bristol for me at the moment. Proving harder than I thought to find someone.

Cheers dude. Have spoken to tadelekt.co.uk but they can’t fit us in for when we need it but will try the others. Cool

I think they might be one and the same, i only mentioned as when we were looking at its as an option for our bathroom i recalled them being in bristol

I might re look at it for next place, just did nit work out for home as we only have 1 bathroom so it was tricky with the time for it to cure etc and also it requiring an outside contractor which always tends to break up flow of jobs

I've got one of the OG quooker boiling taps in chrome if anyone fancies. Good condition. Red plastic at the top of the tank has snapped, but works perfectly. Will sell for relatively low sum, pick up only.

Yeah they also tend not to want to do the floors in Victorian terraces because of subsidence etc. Will undoubtably end up cracking at some point. I don’t mind the cracks if they’re repaired well but I guess others might see it as a fault.

If I was looking for a replica Sunburst Nelson clock, where would I look? Anyone had any personal experience?

Anyone seen a decent looking chair for working from home? Think my spine might collapse if I carry on with my current set up for much longer.

You’re better off investing in a sit/stand desk if you’re planning to wfh permanently.

Both the horizontal steel bits are independant of each other and held by the steel pieces at right angles at each end. The top is then screwed onto the larger horizontal steel bits. If that makes any sense at all.

I got a Herman Miller from here for a really decent price.

My parents are looking to redo all the furniture in their living room and kitchen, thought it might be fun for them to leaf through some magazines for inspiration.

Recommendations? Was thinking about stuff like apartemento, casa brutus, kinfolk etc but to be honest Im pretty clueless.

I had mad lower back pain pre Xmas for around 6 months ordered a sit/stand from Fully.com went in 2 weeks. Ikea do a cheaper version probably give you the same benefit

Enki has some lovely homes in and is only a fiver, worth picking up.
If they have an iPad and a library card download press reader, use your library card to sign up and you can access hundreds of magazines from around the world, including Elle Decoration from UK and elsewhere, Casa Brutus etc

I've got a Vitra one somewhere that is missing its label. I'll try and dig it out this weekend to check condition if you're interested?
