christy sloane towels

Featured Brand - Christy

The Christy brand story starts in 1950, when Henry Christy returned to England from Constantinople with a looped pile fabric sample (brand new to the Western World). He and his inventor brother studied the material, and a machine was created allowing terry towelling to be produced on a large scale.

One year later, the first batch of terry towels were on display at the Great Exhibition in London, with Queen Victoria herself ordering some!

In 1988, Christy became the official towel supplier of Wimbledon, and it is no surprise that the Christy towel used on Centre Court by the players has now become an iconic part of The Championships.

Christy’s knowledge of cotton, gained from 160 years in the business, means their bed linen is as well regarded as their towels. Their continual production of on-trend designs means they continue to innovate in their field.

Brand Spotlight - Parker Knoll

This month, our spotlight is on Parker Knoll.
The business that was to become Parker Knoll was started in 1869 by Frederick Parker. Over the next few years the business steadily grew, as he began manufacturing furniture for the gentry & leading London retail establishments.
Larger premises were soon purchased at 16 Wenlock Street in London.

Frederick took pride in using the best of British craftsmanship to create the finest furniture. His father was a cabinet maker who passed his skills on to his sons. As Frederick expanded his family, 3 of his 7 sons joined the business as innovators & inventors.
To this day, Parker Knoll continue to lead the market in innovative designs & technology.

In the 1920’s, Parker’s sons met Willi Knoll. His revolutionary ideas helped to modernise comfort & transform the business.
The coiled steel wire spring developed by Knoll remains unchanged in many of their chairs today.

In the 1930’s, Parker Knoll became the first British company to advertise nationally in the UK. They created their Man-on-Spring advert & radical window displays.
In 1932 Parker Knoll chairs are chosen to furnish a large proportion of the BBC headquarters at Portland Place.
When King Edward VIII abdicated the throne in 1936, he was sitting on a Parker Knoll chair.

By the early 1960s Parker Knoll entered a new period of transition by deciding to increase mass production and the constructed a new factory in Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire to enter the three piece suite market.
In 1976 Parker’s great grandchildren, Martin and Tom Jourdan, became the fourth generation to  lead the company.

In 1996, the company was named the number 1 furniture brand in the UK, and by 2005 the company had become part of Sofa Brands International Group.
Parker Knoll is truly a company that has reacted to one of the most trying periods in British history & come out stronger on the other side.

Brand Spotlight - Vispring

This month, our spotlight is on Vispring beds.
The origins of Vispring are at the turn of the 20th Century. English engineer James Marshall is working in Canada when his wife falls ill. He created a handmade mattress with coiled springs wrapped in muslin each enclosed in a pocket, with layers of horsehair. The Marshall Sanitary Mattress Company is created!
It’s not until 1901 that the company is incorporated & becomes Vispring = Vi being a reference to the amount of springs in each sewn pocket at this stage.

The quality & bespoke nature of their mattresses attracted the attention of cruise ships of the time, and the White Star Line ship ‘The Olympic’ was fitted with their products in 1911.
When they were developing its sister ship ‘The Titanic’ in 1912, each of its 39 suites & 350 first class cabins included a Vispring mattress.

In the mid 1920’s, Vispring introduced fillings other than horsehair. Cotton, silk & even cashmere were now included in their mattresses.

It wasn’t until 1932 that they came up with the worlds first pocket sprung divan. It was the perfect partner for their iconic mattresses. Vispring is still one of the world leaders for quality divan sets to this day.

Each mattress is made entirely by hand, to order.
This guarantees the quality & resilience of each item.
Choosing a Vispring could be the best decision you have ever made!

Vispring are so confident in their craftsmanship, they offer a Guarantee of Quality for the lifetime of your bed!
Buy your mattress or divan bed in a store with Vispring on display & you get the additional peace of mind of the Vispring Comfort Promise. You can exchange your mattress once, if the spring tension you have chosen is not suitable.
