Spent the day in the Peaks yesterday, amongst other things, buying a sofa. I cannot tell you how impressed I was by Tim and Gareth at Authentic Furniture. They know their beautiful products inside and out (literally) and were so warm, welcoming and accommodating of the fact I needed to sit on every single sofa and stroke every single swatch of fabric. They even took the opportunity to look at the dimensions of my front door and hall to ensure I can get my custom made velvet Old Bessie into the house! The whole experience was a real pleasure – I can’t wait for the finished product!
