  • Great Gift Ideas for the Home this Christmas

    Winter holidays are a time for family gatherings, delicious food, and festivities. But they’re also a time when people start thinking about home decor ideas, recipes, online sales, and Christmas gifts. Nothing quite compares to the excitement and thrill of the festive season!

    As always, a huge amount of planning goes into this event, and our buying team has been working closely with suppliers from around the world, creating a range of festive gifts, homeware, and decorations that will enchant and excite both young and old. Here are just some of the products available on the online shop for Christmas.

    Our charming whimsical wooden advent calendars are sure to become a firm family favourite, joyfully brought out year after year and brimming full of lovely gifts. Our brightly coloured and beautifully crafted wooden train advent calendar, will both enchant and entertain little ones this Christmas. We've also created a fantastic LED light up advent calendar in the shape of a house painted in white, which will add a magic sprinkle of Nordic style to the home.

    Following on from the popularity of our Christmas Boxes, we've introduced two new styles, one for Christmas Eve and one for Christmas Day, available in three sizes. This has to be one of our favourite Christmas items this year. Our Christmas boxes are made from sturdy wood, complete with solid lid, and they can be used year after year. Fill them up with all sorts of fun items; chocolates, DVDs, books, pyjamas, and toys. Kids will love the excitement of opening them up on that special day.

    Keep yourself warm and toasty with our comfy Christmas blankets with soft fleecy lining featuring two gorgeous festive designs (a grey tartan and traditional fairisle pattern). These over-sized blankets are perfect for wrapping yourself up beside the fire or throwing over a bed or sofa to add that extra special festive look to your living room or bedroom. we also have a range of festive bedding made from soft brushed cotton that would enhance a room and provide a striking talking point.

    If you're seeking to enhance your living and outdoor spaces with a cheery warm festive glow then our gorgeous contemporary LED light up signs, LED lanterns and Christmas lights will do the job. Our lanterns are available in silver, pewter, as well as antique white and, will provide that hint of sparkle to the home environment.

  • Sue Ryder Online Shop Spring Collection Photographic Shoot

    There’s nothing we enjoy more than taking some of our most vibrant and exciting products and creating fantastic new lifestyle imagery for the Sue Ryder Online shop. We regularly plan photographic shoots throughout the year, especially when we need to promote our exclusive furniture collections.

    Sue Ryder Occasional Chairs

     

    On 8th March 2017, the Online shop team, armed with various props, with cars stuffed full of chairs, tables and various other bits and pieces, including the odd drill to assemble our furniture, headed off to our location at Thorpe Hall, in Peterborough.

    Thorpe Hall Peterborough

     

    Thorpe Hall at Longthorpe in the city of Peterborough, is a beautiful Grade 1 listed building, built by Peter Mills between 1653 and 1656, for the Lord Chief Justice, Oliver St John. After a period as a hospital, the hall is currently used as a hospice for Sue Ryder.

    With its grand façade, lofty interior spaces complete with huge windows, high ceilings, and neutral backdrops, we decided that this was the perfect location for our latest photographic shoot.

    Luckily the weather was on our side and apart from a few drops of rain, we managed to assemble the furniture using our trusty hand-held drills but also shoot most of our new garden furniture and statues outside in the impressive landscaped gardens.

    The whole process is important to us – Planning – Shooting – Editing – all of these steps are essential when it comes to successful product photography.

    A great working relationship with a professional photographer is an absolute “must” especially if the objective is to achieve beautiful aspirational photographs. We were, therefore, incredibly lucky to have acquired the expertise of Northamptonshire Lifestyle and Wedding photographer Georgi Mabee who joined the team for the day. Her years of experience really helped us focus on what we wanted to achieve for every shot and because of this detailed planning, we managed to get through all seventy shots within the day.

    After several hours of unpacking boxes, shifting key pieces of furniture into the perfect position and then enhancing the shot with the right props we managed to complete the entire shoot by 4.00 pm!

  • Get the look - Scandi Style

    Scandinavian interior design combines simplicity, utility, and beauty with pared back style centered around warm functionality, clean lines, and effortless craftsmanship. The use of light is important within this genre as are muted tones,  natural materials, and minimal fuss.

    Create a fresh, vibrant and contemporary feel in your home this Spring with our range of Scandi style furniture. The Stockholm furniture collection is designed for modern living, offering style and practicality with a sympathetic minimalistic approach.

    The inspiration for our Stockholm collection came from the current fascination with Scandi interiors. We wanted to create a co-ordinated furniture range that could easily translate into any interior space but also provides the eye with a point of interest.

    The trend for a bold geometric pattern is still strong within the home and with this in mind, we opted for a fresh and zesty bold geometric design on a sleek modern-shaped chair. If you want a room that looks like it's hopped off the page of a magazine then adding a pop of colour and bold pattern are absolutely key to nailing this look.

    The use of natural wooden legs across all pieces within the range creates a consistent look and feel. You can soften up the look by introducing rugs, a great way to add an accent colour, perhaps taken from the chair, whilst adding a level coziness and comfort to your home.

    100% of the profits raised from the sale of these items will help our hospice and neurological care programme.

  • Why We Love Children’s Furniture

    It’s always exciting for the team when we first see new product samples in the Sue Ryder New Goods office. But the samples that we love to see the most are the children’s furniture.

    Here are some of the top reasons why we love furniture for children:

    It’s Fun!

    We think one of the most exciting parts of being a parent is watching your child’s likes and tastes develop. Furniture with fun patterns and bright colours, (more often than not, far from what we’d choose for our ourselves) is a great way to help children put their own stamp on their playrooms or bedrooms.

    We Can Personalise It 

    Some our our children’s furniture, the Funky Monkey and Funky Fairy stools, for example, can be personalised with your child’s name. We think the personalised items make a great unique gift for a special occasion.

     You Can Let It Get Messy

    Little people make a big mess. So if you don’t fancy felt tip all over your sofa or PVA on the kitchen table, furniture for children might just be a good idea! Our children’s furniture is priced modestly with this in mind. Find our range here.
