My weathered old ancient leather sofa. It’s a wonderfully comfortable item and I’m loath to replace it so I decided to look into extending its life with some simple techniques from those in the know and which I pass on to you lovely readers.
Like wood, leather is natural and so breathes and expands and contracts over time and no two hides will ever be the same so caring for them is varied, especially for the more obscure types out there (I have sat on a horse leather sofa which was lovely and a friend has an ostrich leather cushion). Leather is durable, timeless, comfortable and gets better with age in my opinion gaining a patina over time which can only serve to add to its character, and with these few
Stick to these few simply do’s & don’ts and your leathery loveliness will feel and look beautiful for years to come. Unlike ancient Moroccan women flogging oil!…
Here at OKU Home we’re not just about top quality, ready to use furniture that you can enjoy right away but flat-pack is an option many are turning to for convenience and savings, comparative to pre-built. The range currently in stock should fulfil your needs in almost any room in the house from the little bedside table to the full chest of drawers right up to double wardrobes. With instruction manuals being more clear now than ever, building it yourself has never been easier.
What’s that you say? ‘Flat pack is not as good as regular furniture’, think again. We don’t deal in the rough & ready stuff coming from China and the like, ours is quality sourced from Sweden so you know you’re getting the real deal which will last. And you know those Swedes – style and form are everything! We want you to enjoy the things we provide not get irritated by them falling apart after a year. And if you skipped the link above to a lovely garden table, go back and check it out, it’s solid wood with granite top – no chipboard here!
I bet friends and family will never know which furniture you have is flat pack and which isn’t – it’s that good these days. And you can be secretly chuffed that you built it yourself! And to help you out with your build here are
1) When opening the packaging, don’t use a super sharp Stanley knife as you may damage the parts within.
2) Check all the parts with the instruction sheet – if anything is missing, give us a ring.
3) Make sure you have the tools for the job at hand (some are included) as it’s very frustrating running to and from the tool shed every five minutes.
4) Dust components down as tiny bits of sawdust may still be present and you don’t want them in your knicker drawer!
5) A cordless drill is a real time-saver but not essential, and use with caution as a slip could scratch.
There you have it.
