Luxury Toy Cars by British Designers, plus Christmas gifts and decorations!

The team at Barbed are extremely excited about the festive season ahead. It’s certainly turning chilly outside, and we’re beginning to pair our woolly hats and mitten gloves together to keep the cold bite at bay as we make our way to the showrooms every morning! But it’s not so bad for those of us at the Liffords Place showroom in Barnes, because with the countdown to Christmas not too far away, we’ve decked the place out by replacing our range of designer garden furniture with a plethora of Christmas goodies and colourful decorations!

You can still head over to our Chiswick showroom to browse through our contemporary outdoor furniture collections, and we promise we’ll still be getting into the Christmas spirit over there as well!

We’re stocking luxury toy cars, designed in Britain!

It’s always great fun picking and choosing what Christmas presents you’re going to buy for family and friends, but we’re usually stumped for ideas with at least one person every year! We often find that dad is the tough one to buy for, but the good news is we have teamed up with British toy designers Playforever this year, and we’re currently stocking a selection of their beautifully crafted luxury toy cars. The perfect Christmas present for dad, or anyone in the family who has a penchant for motors!

Playforever are creators and connoisseurs of luxury art toys, and all of their toy cars that we have available are made with fantastic craftsmanship, designed in England, and built to last a lifetime! Playforever began their journey with Bruno, a toy racing car that was born from a lifelong fascination with 1930s tin cars and classic cigar racers, and the selection of choice has continued to grow. The company are even collaborating with Hugo Boss this Christmas season, so we know we’re in good company with their virtually indestructible toy cars onboard!

The designs we have available at Barbed:

Colours Available: Green with yellow (GB)

A British Roadster designed by a British company!
The Bonnie design really is a typically British Lotus inspired 1930’s racing car.
