Alex Willcock and Felix Conran joined "Business Breakfast" programme on JAZZ FM
Thank you Natasha Knight; it was such a privilege to join this conversation with Jazz FM. From topics surrounding the growing interest in sustainable products to the joys of running a family business, we loved sharing our views. (The interview begins 16 minutes) Some of our favourite parts include “there is such a growing awareness to support craft, to support local industry so there is absolutely a step change that is occurring.” “A family company is not by any mean just about the family, it is about the family values.”

"October is traditionally the month to panic-buy a new sofa for arrival in time for the holidays. This year being unlike any other year, our Christmas plans are unclear, what we want from a new couch has altered, and the way we buy furniture has changed. This autumn Maker & Son launched NOW, a service allowing customers to choose from the brand’s five most popular pieces in the six most popular fabrics and colours, for delivery in as little as two weeks." We are thrilled that our Maker&Son Now service was featured, as well as a lovely image of our Malachite 100% Linen Song Sofa. Thank you so much to Katrina Burroughs for a really helpful overview and tips. You can read the Sunday Times article here.

How coronavirus changed the way we shop for homeware and interiors

Indeed, it's not just the wearing face masks that has changed the way we shop. Coronavirus has turned the world upside down, and The Times has written an interesting piece in both their digital and print versions about how consumers are shopping differently. We are grateful (thank you Katrina Burroughs) to be included, and happy that our Mobile Showrooms can continue to be an source of enjoyment, inspiration and education as shoppers look to new and innovative ways to shop.
