Christmas is a very special time of year for the Barbed team in Barnes. The outdoor furniture market generally revolves around the spring and summer seasons, and our work is usually dedicated to helping our clients find the contemporary garden furniture they dream of to enjoy every glimpse of British sunshine we may have. However, at Christmas time, our goals are slightly different, and so are those of our customers. At this time of year, we help people find the perfect Christmas gifts and decorate their homes in a unique way – with a preference for chic Scandinavian themes.
Deck the Halls
Putting the showroom together to turn it into our very own winter wonderland is always our little ray of sunshine in the dark of winter (although technically we start setting everything up at the end of October!). It is very good fun, and we can be even more creative than usual when it comes to displaying furniture, decorations and other lighting options. As lights, baubles, Christmas trees and other seasonal items mix with more regular, non-seasonal pieces, we let our inspiration lead the way to present an eclectic mix of things that we love, and that our customers love, in a fun and exciting way.
Dreaming of a white Christmas
If you've been to winter fairs and shows this year, you’d have seen a colour palette of copper, silver and gold this year to complement or replace the traditional reds and greens. This Christmas, we’ve turned our showroom into an avalanche of white wonders, with a few glimpses of colour, for a dreamy and festive atmosphere. If you’re looking for beautiful decorations and last-minute presents, be they candles, snow globes, baubles, garlands or even felt reindeers and sleighs, come and visit our Barnes showroom and we’re sure you’ll find just what you need – and so much more!
Carol of the bells
You may see some Christmas bells in our showroom this year, but you won’t hear any Christmas carols! At Barbed, we like to do things differently, and although we do change our playlist for Christmas, we do not play (or sing, for that matter!) carols from October to December. If you visit our showroom, whatever the season, you will be welcomed by an eclectic mix of music that, like everything we do, is edgy and transcends boundaries. We like to think that we are a carol-free haven for Christmas shoppers!
We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has visited our showroom – and our website – and who has supported us this year. We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We hope to see you soon!
