January 2019

Happy 2019 to you all, the time of year when we're making plans for the year ahead. Here at Needle Rock, I'm launching a new arm to the business with some highly desirable and unique creative upholstery pieces available for you to buy. Check out the one-off pieces on the For Sale page. With access to some of the world's most desirable designer fabrics, I am reworking both vintage and antique seating options into pieces of beauty. If you are looking for something different then give me a call at Needle Rock, I can design something just for you. I have lots of stock available ready for the magic to begin, and if you're after something we don't have - we can source it for you from our network of dealers across the UK. I'm just absolutely loving it! I could do with another me really - but the days are already getting longer, and with more daylength there's a natural rhythm of increased productivity! With the brand new website launched last year, coupled with social media campaigns - yes you are finally going to see me on Instagram, Pintrest as well as Facebook, I am hoping it will be the most enjoyable year yet!

"Dear Ali, Just a word to say thank you so much. The Furniture Cave delivered the chairs last night and they look fantastic! I felt quite emotional, to be honest, because they are my grandmother's chairs – she would be delighted too! With thanks from a very satisfied customer."
