Downsizing with Style

Downsizing with Style

Having lived in a large family home for almost forty years, Mrs J Andrews downsized four months ago to a smaller, modern property. None of her heavy dark furniture fitted into the new house and therefore she had to completely rethink what furniture was required and also what style she would like to see in this new, modern space. Mrs Andrews was looking for an attractive piece of furniture that would provide practical, accessible storage for books in the new lounge. As the house has no window sills, she also wanted a surface for plants, ornaments and table lamps.

So she searched the internet for potential suppliers and invited Conquest to provide a priced proposal. Mrs Andrews was visited by Richard Adey, senior Conquest designer and son of John Adey who founded the family business over forty years ago.

‘The experience with Conquest was a total delight. Richard was very knowledgeable and professional; we discussed what I was looking for and he measured the room and put together a proposal there and then. It wasn’t hurried but completed most expeditiously. There were no pressure tactics or haggling – both of which I hate’.

Mrs Andrews chose a light Savannah Oak unit which had the clean and modern look she wanted, in keeping with the rest of her home, and which helped to maximise the sense of natural light within the room. It gave her a modern, up to date feel and style whilst also capturing a sense of the classic and timeless with its rich grain and hand-crafted fitting and finish.

‘Everyone bent over backwards to be helpful and the two fitters were great. I have put the books in the unit which I’m really pleased about but I haven’t yet put lots of items on display as I’m rather enjoying the lack of clutter … although I’m not sure how long that will last.’
