Italian Furniture: Timeless, Stylish and Cool

Modern Italian furniture with led lights
The Planeta Range

Great Italian Furniture at reasonable prices is very hard to come by. This is especially true here in Glasgow, where there’s little choice. For this reason, Modish Furnishing put great importance on supplying top quality, luxury Italian Furniture.

Imagine there was a World Cup of cool, in which nations battled it out to decide which country is worthy of sitting upon the throne of chic. We’re fairly certain that more often than not, the Italians would win it!

Few other nations have what it takes to compete with those suave and stylish Italians. They make it all look so effortless, while we Brits spend fortunes on the high street in the constant struggle to look semi-presentable.

But luckily for us, the Italians are keen exporters of everything that makes their nation so great and enviable. Fashion and food come right at the top of this list – chances are if you’re reading this blog you’ve probably had some sort of Italian meal within the last week.

There’s something else though, something much more synonymous with the Italian nation and its identity – furniture.

Rich History of Italian Furniture

The Alena Range

When it comes to design and ingenuity, Italy has long been at the forefront of the industry. From architecture to art to interior design, Italy is a beacon for anyone looking for the latest trends and styles. ‘Made in Italy’ is a label which carries a lot of prestige in these fields, and Italy has come to be greatly admired for their continued contributions in these areas.

Italian made goods are synonymous with high quality, and this is certainly the case when it comes to Italian furniture. In Modish Furniture’s relatively short lifespan, we’ve come to learn than almost everything we bring in from Italy is masterfully designed and built to a higher standard than other furniture.

People regularly ask us specifically about Italian furniture, something that can’t be said about items made in other countries. That’s because the prestige of Italian furniture is so strong; whether we’re talking Italian beds, Italian dining sets or Italian sofas, people understand that Italy do it best.

Down here at Modish Furnishing, we’re constantly looking to Italy for inspiration and ideas. In conjunction with some of the biggest and best Italian designers, Modish Furnishing is able to offer high class, luxury items from the home of style.

Among the many great products in our showroom you’ll find plenty of Italian craftsmanship and design. Items of the utmost quality, just as you’d expect from the renowned Italian design houses we work with.

Our advantageous partnerships with these Italian design houses means we are able to bring luxury Italian furniture to Glasgow easily, and at great prices. People assume the costs for Italian furniture are extravagant, but Modish Furnishing gives you affordability as well as opulence: bringing sophisticated, stylish and classy Italian furniture well within budget.

Affordable Italian Furniture

One of the best things about fine Italian furniture is its versatility. It doesn’t matter what kind of home you have, nor the style of the interior, Italian furniture will look great anywhere. That’s because items of the finest quality will always look good, no matter the surroundings.

No matter your style, there’s always room for quality. This is true of ultra modern homes, classical homes and everything in between. When furniture is well made it becomes more adaptable. A shoddy sofa won’t fit in anywhere, but an item of premium build and class will always stand out.

Italian furniture comes with style that is utterly irreplaceable and a feeling that can’t be replicated by anything else. Many manufacturers sacrifice build quality for aesthetics, or vice versa. This is something you don’t need to worry about when you buy Italian furniture.

Bespoke Italian Furniture

We supply unique ranges and collections from some of the most renowned designers in Italy. Sleep like a Roman Emperor in the Bellino and Alena bedrooms or give your home the millionaires touch with the LA Star collection.

By shopping Italian, you’ll be furnishing your home with a prestige that you can’t find anywhere else. This is home decor like you’ve never seen it before. This is Italian superiority.

Make my Wardrobe a Wiemann!

Avore Bedroom

Well ladies and gentleman, I can’t believe what I’m about to write. I’m struggling to fathom it. Should I pinch myself? Am I in a dream? Have I opened the wardrobe door and entered into Narnia? Or can it be that the sun has finally joined the party here in Glasgow!?

At the time of writing, the Glaswegian weather is delightful. So much so that I’m wishing I wasn’t sitting in front of a computer hammering away at the keyboard with such vigour and gusto – this enthusiasm should be spent out in the sun, with something cold to hand!

Alas, I’m down at Modish HQ, doing my bit to help keep this ship sailing. As for ships, even the most lush and lavish cruise ships would gaze into our showroom with palpable envy! So what’s going on down here at Modish Furnishing that’s enough to keep us away from the fantastic weather out there?

Earlier on I mentioned about entering the wardrobe and going through to Narnia, and it’s wardrobes we’re excited about this week at Modish. Our eye wateringly stylish Wiemann Wardrobes to be exact!

A German company, you can be assured Wiemann will deliver when it comes to the all important points of efficiency and practicality – obviously two of the most crucial aspects to consider when choosing a wardrobe. You need to make sure your new wardrobe actually functions well enough as a wardrobe and does the job it’s supposed to do.

Imagine spending all that money on a lovely new sliding door wardrobe, only to find there’s nowhere to hang your shirts, store your clothes, hang your ties, or even worse: no specialised compartment for your socks?

Wiemann Sunset Wardrobe

For us, each one of these details, no matter how small they seem, are key when it comes to a wardrobe. Secondly, but by no means any less significant, is how it looks. And you only need to look at the photos of these Wiemann Wardrobes to realise they’re doing that part right.

A wide selection of colours, varying numbers of doors, sizes to match your needs and the option to choose how many mirrored panels you want, Wiemann wardrobes’ diversity and versatility helps them to stand out from the crowd. All of these factors coming together help to make Wiemann one of the leading suppliers of Wardrobes in Europe.

Wiemann also make great use of their range of accessories and add-ons to help make your wardrobe even more stylish and useful to you. Wiemann say they will turn a bedroom into a “haven of ordered tranquillity”, and it’s easy to see why. Handy add-ons such as self-closing doors and racks for your ties, trousers and socks are all available to purchase. Wiemann Wardrobes also give you a choice when it comes to the LED down-lighting above the doors.

Wiemann Berlin

One massive benefit to note when buying a Wiemann wardrobe is that the cost you pay includes Wiemann’s tailor-made home delivery service. Both the delivery and build of your wardrobe is covered in the cost. All you need to do is sit back and relax as your dream wardrobe is installed in the room of your choice!

Everything you need to know about: Ottoman Furniture

Chelsea Ottoman Bed

History of Ottoman Furniture 

The history of Ottoman furniture is as rich and varied as the Ottoman Empire itself. The Empire, which lasted just over 700 years before crumbling after the First World War. As you’d expect, with an empire that lasted for so long and spanned so much of Eastern Europe, Northern Africa and the Middle East, many of the cultural remnants can still be found throughout modern civilisation.

Cultural artefacts such as language, religion, architecture, food recipes, art, and fashion are all items which have survived the death of the once great Ottoman Empire. However, something which has not only survived, but has also spread itself across western culture and even assimilated itself more prominently than any of these things is the furniture of the time.

Ottoman styles of furniture was a name traditionally given to wooden chests or boxes which would be used as chairs, footstools and benches, as well as doubling up as a way of storing things. These wooden pieces of furniture would be upholstered and padded, in order to make them comfortable to sit on. A lot may have changed in the world since the 14th century but we still share the need for comfort with our distant ancestors!

Ottoman furniture is believed to have begun being exported from the Ottoman Empire more commonly at around the 18th century, when it started to make its way into French and English homes. At around this time, it would have likely only been the higher, more affluent classes in society which would have been able to afford such luxuries.

It is for this reason that, while Ottoman furniture is now much more widely affordable, it still retains a certain aura of luxury and class. It’s not difficult to imagine Ottoman furniture gracing the castles and stately homes of high society types a few centuries ago.

Ottoman Furniture today

Nowadays, Ottoman furniture is extremely popular. Its versatility means it can fit in to just about any surroundings and still look fantastic. Also setting it apart from much of the competition is its practicality.

Storage space is becoming harder and harder to find in this day and age. We have more ‘stuff’ than ever. Today’s human beings are experts at acquiring things they don’t need,  resulting in almost every single one of us suffering from a lot of unnecessary clutter around the house.

It’s no wonder then that Ottoman furniture, a discreet and subtle storage solution, is so popular in the 21st century.  Most commonly now, Ottomans come in the form of beds. Beautifully designed and upholstered beds with a wealth of storage space underneath the mattress.

These inexpensive items are a fantastic way of adding charm to the room as well as tactfully hiding away your clothes or clutter. These are especially excellent solutions for kid’s bedrooms, which as any parent knows, can be a minefield of toys and playthings.

The advantages of an Ottoman bed are clear and it really is no surprise that these are some of the most popular items in our showroom and on our website. They look great, provide an excellent storage solution and exude elegance, class and sophistication.

Dine Differently

Victory Dining Table

I went out for dinner in Glasgow last night. I had a lovely meal. I don’t get out for dinner very often, but when I do, I make sure I go somewhere interesting. I do all the research, read all the reviews and trawl through the Instagram archives. Making sure I have the highest quality dining experience is essential.

Experience is the key word here. A dining experience isn’t all about the food on offer, although obviously that’s a big help! No, a dining experience means the full shebang: absolutely everything that’s involved around the act of you enjoying your meal.

That’s the ambiance of the room, the tranquility of the environment, the quality of service, the location, the noise, the decor, the company, the dining table.

It’s the dining table which is at the heart of the entire experience. The dining table is equivalent to foundations of the house. Start from there, build up and around and eventually you’ll have the complete package: the whole dining experience.

At Modish Furnishing we place a great deal of importance and emphasis on the dining table. Some will say it’s just a table, but to us it’s a whole lot more. As well as helping to create the feel of your entire dining experience, it will most likely be the focal point of the dining room; a key area in your home.

Moon Dining Table

The dining table is where the family will gather to discuss their problems, talk about their days and spend quality time with one another. It’s where disagreements will be discussed, and hopefully resolved. It’s where relationships will be built, friendships solidified and differences of opinion will be debated.

Your experiences at your dining table, alongside your friends and family, will be unique to you. So your dining table should be something unique too. It should light up a room. Inspire conversation; perhaps even debate.  Quite simply, it should make your home a better place.

At Modish Furnishing, when picking out our next selection of dining tables, we’ve taken all of this into account. We’ve chosen dining tables which are one of a kind. Dining tables which you won’t find anywhere else. No one wants to be asked to dinner at a friend’s house and see the exact same dining table at their house.

Modish Furnishing’s distinctive range of dining tables comes in a variety of different sizes, styles and finishes. From luxurious and unmatchable marble tops to ultra-modern dining tables with a sleek glass top, there’s something for all tastes.

Elba Dining Table

Matching the feel of your home is another crucial factor to consider when choosing your new dining table; a contemporary glass-top dining table with unconventional stainless-steel legs probably won’t match up in a classical style of home. Equally, a home filled with ultra-modern furnishings may not suit an oak-wood table dining table.

That’s why we make sure we have all manner of styles of all the furniture we stock. This ensures that no matter the feel of your home, you’ll find something that will fit right in and work within your home environment.

Nothing is more important to us than the satisfaction of the customer. We strive to bring our customers the best, the latest and the most interesting products. And with the latest selection of dining tables that have become available… we really do believe we’re succeeding in bringing the most interesting dining tables to Glasgow.

Espresso Dining Table

Our Glasgow showroom is home to a small but impressive selection of dining tables, but our online store and our social media channels are where you’ll find the majority of what we are able to bring you. Our social media channels are especially good places to see the very best and most notable of what Modish Furnishing can offer.

As ever, you’re more than welcome down at Modish HQ (82 Seaward Street Glasgow, G41 1HJ) to browse our ranges and talk to the experts. Likewise, if you see something online you like and would want more information, you can pop down or give us a call and tell you all you need to know, helping you to make an informed and sensible decision.

The tables featured in this blog are from a brand new supplier, and as such aren’t yet available on our website, please call us on 0141 429 3541 if you are interested in any of these tables.

What are the benefits of Pocket Sprung Mattresses?

There’s nothing more important than getting a good night’s sleep. It allows you to shake off the hardships of the day before and unwind. Giving your body that much needed rest it needs to perform throughout the following day. Having spent years selling mattresses in Glasgow, we know a thing or two about the best type of mattress, and how to get the best night’s sleep!

Unfortunately, many people suffer from a poor night’s sleep. With the quality of their mattress coming in high on the list of causes. This is why we’re delving deeper into the complicated and confusing world of mattresses in this series of blogs.

Last week we looked at the advantages of memory foam mattresses, which you can read here… and this week we’ll be taking a closer look at the memory foam mattress’ arch nemesis, the traditional, pocket-spring mattress.

Pocket Spring Mattresses Last Longer

When you purchase a top-quality pocket spring mattress, with a high spring count – you’re getting a mattress that can go the distance. By maintaining the mattress well and regularly flipping, you will easily be able to get up to 10 years out of it without noticing any sag. This is in contrast to memory foam, which by its very nature will unfortunately suffer from sag over time.

Memory foam mattresses have a great deal of benefits, but longevity isn’t one of them. Opting for a pocket spring mattress will future proof you and save you having to worry about the inconvenience of buying a new mattress again for a while!

Pocket Spring Mattresses Utilise Independent Springs

This may seem like an obvious point. However, it is one of great importance -especially for couples! Having springs independent of one another means that two people sleeping on either side of the mattress are using different springs. Independent springs, therefore, means one person not affecting the other’s side of the bed.

In open coil mattresses, if one person is heavier than the other, then the lighter person will end up rolling towards the middle of the bed. Likewise with memory foam. Once one person has their ‘groove’ moulded into the memory foam mattress, there’s no room for manoeuvre. This means memory foam mattresses could prove problematic for some couples.

Pocket spring mattresses are a great choice for people who struggle to get a good night’s rest while sharing a bed. Couples with differing weights and support requirements should consider a pocket spring mattress.

Pocket Spring Mattresses Offer Great Support

Mattresses with high pocket spring counts are able to offer an incredible amount of support. As the pocket spring count goes up, the mattress becomes more firm. This allows the weight of the body to be distributed over a greater number of pocket springs.

This allows you to carefully select the level of firmness which is best for you. Some people prefer firm mattresses and others prefer soft; some people require a certain kind of mattress to aid them with various issues such as back or joint pain.

As your weight is distributed over each of the springs, the mattress will completely support your body. This allows the body to fully relax giving you a great night’s rest.

Pocket Spring Mattresses Feel More Luxurious

This may seem like more of a subjective point and something that comes down to each person’s own personal preference. However, we believe there is no greater feeling than a pocket spring mattress of the right firmness packed with a dense mixture of natural materials. We recommend lamb’s wool for extra comfort!

This is a feeling that a memory foam mattress just can’t replicate with its man-made, synthetic mix of lab-produced foam.

Pocket Spring Mattresses Aren’t Warm

If, like me, you prefer to sleep in a cool environment, then a pocket spring mattress is the choice for you. Memory foam mattresses are well-known for the heat they give off and can leave you tossing and turning through the night. No one likes kicking the duvet off and on, just to escape the horrors of a sweltering hot night’s sleep.

Pocket Spring Mattresses Don’t Smell

Ok, you might be wondering what on earth we’re talking about, but if you’ve ever owned a memory foam mattress you’ll completely understand!

Memory foam mattresses unfortunately come with a very distinct smell due to the synthetic foam and the chemicals used to create it. The smell doesn’t last forever but will be around for a few weeks or so and isn’t the most pleasant fragrance.

Pocket spring mattresses don’t suffer with this issue. So in this case we give this point as a win for the mattresses with pocket springs!

Pocket Spring Mattress in Glasgow

Modish Furnishing offers a wide range of pocket spring and memory foam mattresses. Many of these mattresses are available to view and demo at our Glasgow showroom, where you can also benefit from speaking to one of our expert advisors.

We offer pocket spring and memory foam mattresses to suit a range of budgets. With each mattress chosen individually for its build quality and comfort. You don’t need to take my word for it though, pop down to our Glasgow showroom and test them for yourself.

Everything you need to know about: Memory Foam Mattresses

Buying a mattress is not an easy thing to do. As well as the monetary investment, there needs to be a lot of time and thought put into the mattress buying process. And rightly so, it’s a huge decision. We spend roughly one third of our entire life in bed. That’s a lot of time on your mattress. So you’d better make sure you choose the right one!

Luckily, Modish Furnishing is on hand to guide you through purchasing your next mattress. We will help you avoid all the common pitfalls, while ensuring you make the right choice. One thing we’re consistently asked about when it comes to mattresses is the pros and cons to of a memory foam mattress.

The popularity of memory foam mattresses has soared in recent years and there’s good reason for that. Memory foam mattresses come with benefits that their pocket sprung counterparts can only dream of. Here at Modish Furnishing we have a massive selection of memory foam mattresses to choose from. Many of which are on display at our Glasgow showroom, ranging from economical to luxury.

So, here for you, are some of the advantages of memory foam mattresses:

Less strain on the body with memory foam

Memory foam mattresses mould to the shape of your body when you lie on it. This allows your weight to be distributed evenly across the top of the mattress. There is a thin layer of memory foam is located above a base of more solid and non-memory foam. This feeling of soft foam moulding under your figure is the ultimate in comfort. It can give a much better night’s sleep than a standard pocket sprung mattress.

Memory foam mattress can relieve aches and pains

Are you one of the many people who suffer from sore joints or a stiff back in the morning? A memory foam mattress might just be the answer you’ve been looking for. The nature of the conforming foam has a big impact on your sleeping posture. Sleeping with a bad posture is one of the main causes of aches and pains and a memory foam mattress can help to correct your posture while you sleep.

A better posture can result in a better night’s sleep and allow you to wake up and start the day free of aches, pains and discomfort.

Memory Foam Mattresses Can Help Alleviate Stress

As mentioned before, with memory foam your body won’t be blighted by the same uncomfortable pressure points as other mattresses, meaning your body can be allowed to fully relax when sleeping. This gives your body the opportunity to de-stress during the night, allowing you to wake up feeling refreshed and re-energised.

Memory foam mattresses are perfect for people with allergies

People who suffer from allergies or breathing problems relating to dust will benefit greatly from switching to a memory foam mattress. The foam used to make the mattress is hypo-allergenic, meaning it is highly unlikely that the products will cause allergic reactions in people.

Memory foam mattresses are a much cleaner way to sleep, the hypoallergenic and antibacterial nature of memory foam mattresses means bed bugs are a fear of the past. For people who suffer from allergies and complications related to breathing such as asthma, making the change to memory foam could have a huge impact in the quality of your sleep.

Memory foam mattress in Glasgow

For memory foam mattresses in Glasgow, coming to Modish Furnishing really is the smart choice. We have the expertise and experience to match our wide selection of memory foam mattresses. From cheaper, more economical memory foam mattresses to more costly memory foam mattresses at the top of the range, as well as everything in between; Modish Furnishing will help you through the often stressful and taxing process of buying a new mattress.

What’s a wardrobe if it’s not Wiemann?

What makes a bedroom? What makes someone walk in and think ‘I wish this was my bedroom’. Is it the bed? The layout? The fancy TV in the corner? These can definitely all bring some character to a room… but nothing can light up a space and inject life into it the way a good wardrobe can; and few do it better than Wiemann Wardrobes!

What are the benefits of Laminate Flooring?

So it’s time to get a new floor. This is a big decision, not to be taken lightly. This is a choice you are going to be stuck with for a good number of years. No pressure!

We understand that this can be a daunting task for people, after all, many questions need to be asked:  Which type of floor should I get? What are the benefits of Laminate flooring? Why should I choose Laminate flooring over carpet?

Don’t worry though, you’ve got Glasgow’s finest on your side to help you through the process – the team down here at Modish Furnishing know a thing or two about flooring! So let’s have a look at the benefits of choosing laminate!

Laminate flooring is cost effective

One of the main factors for anyone when purchasing a new floor is cost. As with any purchase, this is a crucial element that needs to be taken into consideration when redecorating – where the costs can easily soar and you can quickly find yourself over-budget.

Laminate comes out on top against hardwood flooring and carpet when it comes to its cost effectiveness. When compared with hardwood flooring, made of natural materials such as oak and maple, the synthetic laminate is a lot cheaper to buy and fit. With carpet, it and laminate can be similarly priced; however, you’ll find yourself paying a lot more for a higher-end carpet than you will for the top-quality laminates.

Laminate flooring is easy to maintain

Another important thing to consider when buying a new floor: how much maintenance does it need? It’s tiresome enough having to choose a new floor and then to have it fitted, you don’t need the further inconvenience of cleaning, protecting and maintaining it.

This is what is required when you opt for a hardwood floor or carpet though. With natural wooden floors come the necessary upkeep, such as daily cleaning (with the right kind of products), ensuring it doesn’t get wet and making sure dust isn’t allowed to rest between the floor boards. Not to mention the anxiety you’ll face about scuffing the natural wood – shoes off at the door please!

Similarly, carpet comes with its own challenges – if you live in a house with pets, young children or even clumsy adults, you risk staining the carpet. Carpets with stains aren’t always easily cleaned up, and replacing a whole carpet because of one stain is something people often have to deal with.

With laminate, its composition protects it from spills and stains, which makes maintaining its appearance exceptionally easy to do. Semi-regular sweeping or vacuuming a laminate floor is all that is required to keep it in good shape.

Laminate flooring is versatile

The versatility of laminate flooring is another one of its great advantages. It can be installed over any existing flooring in the home, other than carpet. This makes the installation of laminate both easy and more cost effective than other types of flooring.

Its versatility also extends to where you can have it in the home; Laminate is an acceptable and suitable choice for any room in the home, whether it be in the living room, bathroom or kitchen.

There’s something for everyone

The synthetic nature of laminate flooring means you are met with mountains of choice when it comes to actually picking your design. For some, too much choice may seem like a burden, we say it’s a blessing though! Laminate gives you the opportunity to make your home feel unique to you. With such a range of options, you’ll definitely be able to find the right floor for you.

So there you have it, some great reasons why laminate flooring is the right choice for you. Here at Modish Flooring we have a wide selection of high quality laminates, all at great prices. Pop down to the showroom to browse our ranges and speak to our experts.

The COREtec revolution reaches Glasgow

Modish Furnishing are once again leading the way in Glasgow, bringing its customers products you’ll struggle to find anywhere else. This week, we are thrilled to be able to bring the most advanced flooring technology on the market to our Glasgow showroom: COREtec Plus!

What is COREtec Plus?

COREtec is a solution manufactured by US Floors and now stocked by Modish Furnishings. COREtec Plus represents the next revolution in luxury vinyl flooring. If you’re looking for an alternative to glue down LVT, solid locking LVT or laminate flooring, COREtec Plus is the right way to go.

What are the benefits or COREtec Plus floors?

COREtec flooring comes with a patented construction and features the innovative COREtec core structure, which is an extruded core made from recycled wood and bamboo dust, limestone, and virgin PVC. The design and materials make for a warm and comfortable feel underfoot, as well as providing excellent sound insulation.

The unique way in which COREtec Plus floors are designed and constructed brings many benefits that you simply won’t find in other flooring technologies. As COREtec Plus flooring is 100% waterproof, you can safely install them in wet areas, without ever having to worry about the floor swelling or suffering any kind of ill-effects due to exposure to water.

The floors also won’t expand or contract under the normal conditions that would cause other floors to do so; as COREtec Plus is inert and dimensionally stable. This means you can safely fit a COREtec Plus floor in a room which will be bathed in sunlight all day long, without having to worry about it affecting the floor.

Further, COREtec Plus never needs expansion strips in large rooms. Each COREtec Plus plank has an attached cork underlay for a quieter, warmer vinyl floor that is naturally resistant to odour causing mould and mildew.

Where can I find COREtec Plus technology?

You can find it at Modish Furnishing in Glasgow! We are one of only a few retailers in the Glasgow area that are certified to stock COREtec products!

Just pop in to our showroom – 82 Seaward St, Glasgow G41 1HJ – and talk to our sales experts about the technology and start reaping the benefits of the most advanced and innovative flooring solutions on the market right now!
