Is your living space driving you around the bend? Got awkward spaces to fill or unusual shapes to work with? Is there a random pillar or irritating partition wall curtailing your space and cramping your style?
Whether cosied up to create an impromptu reading nook, hard at work at your desk, or pulling overtime as a relaxed nightstand, your dining chairs are primed and ready to become your home’s ultimate furniture multi-taskers.
Once upon a time, seating was a rather lonely affair. After a brief period of popularity that ran from ancient Egyptian to Roman times, the sofa (from the Arabic word, “suffah”, meaning bench) fell firmly out of favour, with society confined to a more solitary seating arrangement for the next thousand or so years.

Here at Timothy Oulton, we’re proud to make high-quality furniture that will last a lifetime… many lifetimes in fact! Nevertheless, they do still require a little bit of tender loving care to make sure they wear their years with pride.
Living in a small space doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style, and good interior decorating does not discriminate against a lack of square footage.

If you thought chandeliers always had to involve super sparkly crystals or countless ornate candelabra, think again. These days, the term chandelier encompasses a range of contemporary ceiling lights, reinvented into new styles crafted from all manner of materials.
A living room is the beating heart of a home. Whether it’s being used as a formal area for welcoming and entertaining guests, a practical space for the general minutiae of everyday life or a chill-out zone for the whole family to relax in – and all while looking great too
If you’re looking to creating an inviting hub in your home, then start with a great dining table. For many people, a wooden table is the only way to go – be that a contemporary reclaimed wood table that adds character to your dining space, or a classic oak table that exudes inviting, tactile warmth.
In this day and age of fast fashion, it can be tempting to apply the same thinking to home decor and furniture. However, unlike fashion items that you might wear just once or twice, furniture items like sofas, dining tables and desks are things that you could may well use for a whole lifetime
