Barker and Stonehouse is a retailer offering unique and high quality furniture and household accessories for all areas of the home. They are a well known traditional company with a long history of providing good service and well made items. The company has various stores although many of them are based in the north, where I live. There is one in London though. Their website is a great alternative to those who can't get to the physical locations and the company deliver all items nationwide.
The company sell everything you could possibly imagine needing or wanting for your household. Furniture for all rooms including the living room, kitchen, dining areas, bedrooms and office. They also provide flooring options and lighting. As well as larger pieces of furniture the company also sell general decorative items like pictures, canvases, ornaments and more. They are a bit like IKEA in terms of what products they provide but I've always found they offer more unique products that are perhaps more bespoke than other stores. Many of the items are specifically made for you after you order. This can obviously mean longer waiting times to receive your items however.
The company sell products by particular brands including Tempur, Tonelli, De Sede, Little Tree Furniture, Kartell, Somnus and more. You are able to search products by brand alone but I think searching by item is easier on the website. The photography is great quality and allows you to really see the items in close detail before you purchase. Full dimensions are provided as well as materials used and a thorough description of the item is given on the specific item page. Delivery and return options for each individual item is also provided.
In the past couple of years I've redecorated a few rooms in my home and made a couple of purchases from the Barker and Stonehouse website. I had shopped in their physical stores before and been very happy with the attitude and assistance of the staff as well as the quality and range of products available so I knew I would get just as good an experience from the online shopping service.
The prices of most items is justifiable although probably higher than a lot of high-street furniture sellers. Delivery charges depend on the item you are buying and you can also choose to 'click and collect', going to pick up your item in a selected store.
My personal recommendations for the company are their collection of rugs as well as their beautiful but functional office furniture which makes working from home a delight!
I would definitely shop with the company again as they are very professional and helpful during the ordering process and the items they sell are top quality.
