If you are struggling for inspiration of what to buy your loved ones this festive season hopefully these suggestions will help.

The architectural model illustrated below is a fascinating decorative object. Models were first made in the Renaissance period to show how a building would look on completion and continue to be used in architectural competitions.

If your looking for something more practical the set of fire tools illustrated below would grace any fire place. We will all be using our open fires more than usual over the next few weeks and we have various fireplace accessories which are beautiful and useful.

If you enjoy toasting marshmallows/ toast etc. over your open fire the beautiful toasting fork illustrated is one of a large collection of toasting forks that we have just purchased.

We wish you all a happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year and we look forward to welcoming you to our showrooms in 2014!
