I find that sleek, stylish and colourful furniture is not that easy to find when you’re looking for something that’s ‘just right.’ Something that will fit that cosy corner in your living room, (does anyone else call it a lounge, or is it just me?) or that spot underneath your bedroom window..
My first port of call is usually Habitat. It’s my furniture mecca. It’s where I go for a little sit down if things are getting on top of me. I’d get into bed there if I could, but I think I might get arrested. Arrested in Habitat. Arrested for sleeping in my pyjamas in Habitat.

So I have been looking for a little nest of tables for my lounge (ha) and a new bedside table for my bedroom. I had resigned myself to having to spend a good couple of hours trawling various sites on tinternet.. but I had a lovely little surprise.
I Googled (love that verb – to Google, one Googles, They had Googled..) ‘Habitat furniture’ and up popped Argos. Argos? Yes, Argos.

I don’t think I’m on my own in thinking that Argos only sold fairly low priced flat-pack furniture.. but turns out we were all wrong. Wrong!

Argos stocks all kinds of lovely brands of kitchen, living room and bedroom furniture, including Habitat and Schreiber… so I settled myself back on the sofa, made me some tea (there was lemon cake too, obvs) and browsed the one site for some lovely new bits and bobs for my home.

So there you have it – my little revelation saved me quite a bit of time and if I go ahead with the purchases, I’ll be able to use their handy stock-checking tools to tell me where I can collect my bits and pieces from. Or, if I want to have them delivered, there’s free delivery being offered on a number of products too.
