Furniture for the Fuller Figure

We have a hard job, sourcing furniture for the larger person. There are literally thousands of websites out there selling clothing and shoes for the particularly large out there. On the whole, we are getting bigger and bigger according to statistics. The USA were always the forerunners, but now it seems the UK is catching up - we are now officially one of the biggest nations in Europe!

If this is the case and there is so much out there in the way of outer and under and foot wear, why on earth has no-one cottoned on to the huge market out there for well made, attractive furniture. Chairs, beds, sofas, steps, ladders (the list is almost endless around the home and office) could be made for the person with a more ample figure. This doesn't just mean the obese in society, but there are a lot of tall heavy people and athletes that don't fit the mould of average weight constraints that most furniture is made to.

Suppliers and manufacturers are thin on the ground! If any of you read this and know of any UK suppliers, your feedback would be greatly welcome. At present we only stock one poor lonely chair. It has a big name - Titan and can hold a weight of 27 stone. (I wonder what would happen if you were 27 stone, fully clothed, holding your morning coffee!).
We also have some chairs that are wider in dimension, can take 18 stone and our supplier is currently looking into these having a gas lift (no jokes please!) capacity of 25 stone. They are the Northland and Lincoln - perfect for those bootylicious customers out there!

Bye for now furniture lovers!

Salem House First Ever Blog

Here it is, after much trial and tribulation by Michael....the first, and definitely not the last SALEM HOUSE BLOG!! My only job now is to find interesting things to write about. Michael has gone to lots of effort today. Up and plugged in to his laptop this morning on his day off, working to set me up with this. I'm sure he is turning into cyborg!! Lots of coffee and frustration later, here I am typing away.....

Now, where to start, at the beginning would be best. We are Salem House, a furniture and home accessories company, based at you guessed it..... Salem House in Cornwall. We're a family owned business who have been trading in Antiques and Furniture for the past 20 years. What Mike doesn't know about furniture is not worth knowing and me, I just like pretty things for the home!

We sell a vast array of items, too many to list, but we've got all bases covered for every room - Bedroom, Lounge, Kitchen, Bathroom, Study plus all the little accessories that turn a house into a home. If you cant see what you you're looking for we can help there too, just click on our Live Chat and you never know, you may even get to chat to me!

I'm going to make use of what's left of the weekend now and think of lots of interesting things to tell you about. I think I'm going to enjoy keeping you all updated.

Bye for now furniture lovers!
