Looking for an arm chair like these, but cheaper hopefully. Any ideas? And ideally without a three month wait.

Anyone know of any wireless, USB-C/Rechargeable lamps that take E27 bulbs, struggling to find anything at all. Below £100 preferred as it's just for lightening up a wardrobe.

Probably not for regular e27 bulbs as they are wired for 240 volts.

https://www.fatboy.com/gb-en/transloetje - has a usb rechargeable fixture and a 3.7v bulb in e27 shape. Only works with their bulb though.

Or use a dummy fixture and one of these - https://www.proav.co.uk/aputure-b7c-led-light.

Cheers for that mate, as I know nothing in this area, would it be possible to use another bulb with a dummy fixture? as my setup would be slightly more complicated with a differing bulb as I use around 5 Xiaomi Yeelights.

You'd need the bulb to have an inbuilt battery like the one I linked. They're becoming more common though so Xiaomi might release one at some point.

Yeah sensors are a good shout for a wardrobe. Xiaomi do all sorts of wardrobe/sensor lights/portable led lamps. Not used their smartbulbs but maybe you could even pair them in the app with one of your existing bulbs to come on at the same time if that's the functionality you're after.

Can anyone recommend a way to get plaster dust out of the grain of engineered flooring?

We vacuum and mop and it looks great but as it dries the residual dust is still there. We have dark oak in this sort of colour so it's quite noticeable. Have tried a microfibre cloth, various brushes etc.

Check these hg guys https://hg.eu/uk/products/hg-parquet-cleaner-extra-strong they have loads of specific cleaners… really struggled with some cement dust but their cement cleaner stuff got rid of it no problem.


Can anyone recommend a good coffee table that has some storage? Not looking for anything too big would prefer round. No real budget.
