Now the January blues are well behind us, these long cold winter nights have started to get us all thinking about the year ahead and revamping our rooms at home.
Lots of Eclectic17’s customers are currently undergoing exciting extensions on their homes or redecorating some of their rooms and are in need of inspiration to change their old look, and there are also people who have recently just moved house and are on the lookout for that special unique piece to add some character to their new abode.
I really enjoy discussing ideas with customers and helping and advising them with their decisions and choices.
We currently stock over 1,000 different unique and eclectic pieces of furniture, seating, lighting, clocks, mirrors, pictures and home accessories here at Eclectic17, but we still have access to 1,000’s more items throughout the network of our suppliers.
We sell many variations of styles, vintage, industrial, rustic and quirky and are confident that we have something for everyone no matter what your taste.
I have some particular favourites as pictured below.
There’s some super cool tv cabinets with matching sideboards and shelving units, a range of rustic wooden topped tables and some really unique industrial iron fishtail stools.
So if there is something that you are particularly looking for that you can’t find anywhere else, or don’t really know what you want or where to look just get in touch and ask if we can help.
We have already sourced some exciting and unique items for some customers as well as two hair salons and a bistro – we do like a challenge!
