Introducing Forever 100% recycled fabrics - from Lifestyle Furniture

A Greener Lifestyle: Forever 100% Recycled Fabrics

We need to talk about plastic.

Since Leo Baekeland created the first fully synthetic plastic in 1907 — the tough as old boots ‘Bakelite’ — we’ve been hooked. We’ve been obsessed. We just can’t get enough. From car parts to ketchup bottles, toothbrushes to t-shirts, we’ve used it in everything.

And why not? It’s light. It’s cheap. It’s just so incredibly versatile.

Are you sitting comfortably? Chances are it’s thanks to the synthetic plastic fibres that form a large proportion of your comfy seat, giving your rear a cosy treat. Did you grab a pre-work coffee this morning? Along with the often entirely plastic lid, disposable takeaway coffee cups are completely coated in the stuff to prevent leakages. But maybe you’re more of a ‘good strong cuppa’ person? Surprise! There might be plastic in your teabags.

Being so useful and flexible means it’s almost impossible to get through your day without coming into contact with some form of plastic. But just because it’s everywhere doesn’t mean it’s good for us — or for our planet.

The plastic problem.

By now, we’re all facing up to reality: as a species, we have a serious plastic problem, and our reliance on it is causing untold damage to the world around us.

Sometimes it gets recycled. Most of the time it ends up in landfill. When it’s dumped it just sits there, taking anywhere between 400 to 1,000 years to break down and decompose, all the while releasing harmful toxins into soil and surrounding water sources.

Then there’s our oceans. We’ll never forget the mix of unrelenting sadness, horror and anger we felt watching the BBC’s Blue Planet II; dolphins playing with discarded plastic bags, the heartbreaking footage of a mother pilot whale mourn the death of her calf — poisoned as a result of plastic pollution.

The numbers are simply staggering: there are over 5 trillion pieces of plastic littering the world’s oceans, and it is estimated that up to 12.7 million tonnes of plastic end up in the sea every year.

Turning the tide.

Though the statistics are grim, there’s a lot of room for hope.

Thanks to the huge efforts of conservationists and campaigners — along with a helpful push from “The Blue Planet Effect”; Sir David Attenborough’s stark warnings having been seen, heard and listened to by more than 14 million viewers — many individuals, households and businesses have been spurred into action, cracking down on those problem single-use plastics.

Positive change is happening, and we can all do our bit.

Introducing Forever: Sumptuous sofas with 100% recycled fabrics.

As a family-run business on the Isle of Man, the world’s only entire nation UNESCO Biosphere, we’re well aware of our responsibility to our environment, and our need to leave a better, cleaner world for future generations.

That’s why at Lifestyle Furniture, we’re delighted to offer our sumptuous sofas in a beautiful new range of Forever 100% recycled fabrics.

Available in a dazzling choice of styles and colours, Forever fabrics are made from 100% recycled yarns — perfect if you’re trying to lead a greener, more sustainable lifestyle.

Luxuriously soft and extremely hardwearing, the recycled polyester yarns that make up Forever fabrics begin life as a mix of regular recycled plastic bottles, repurposed ocean waste plastics and upcycled cotton garments. Because producing these yarns doesn’t require any petroleum, which would normally be used to create standard ‘new’ polyester, CO2 emissions are reduced by an astonishing 75%.

The yarns are then woven into the gorgeous 100% recycled fabrics that make up our lovely, super comfy, eco-friendly sofas.

They’re also brilliantly easy to clean, meaning you don’t have to buy any harmful chemicals to keep them looking and feeling at their very best.

Love your home, love your world.

Pop into the Lifestyle Furniture showroom at Snugborough Trading Estate, Union Mills to try out one of our Forever fabric sofas for yourself.

You won’t believe how beautifully soft and cosy they are – and they’re currently available on special offer in our sensational Summer Sale.

Summer at Home with Lifestyle

“Summertime, and the livin’ is easy.”

Summer. What is it to you?

Long, lazy days soaking up the rays by the beach? Sheltering in the shade with a cheeky Calippo? Throwing the paddling pool at the kids while you nurse something sweet, fruity and just a little boozy from the comfort of your favourite sun lounger?

Sheer. Bliss.

As the mercury hits “please stop, I’m melting” and rain clouds become but a distant memory—well, maybe not so much here on our loveably unpredictable island—the primal pull of the great outdoors becomes irresistible. But what about the great indoors?

For us at Lifestyle, summer is vibrant, vivacious, dazzling. It’s light and life; warmth and nostalgia. Reflecting all that seasonal colour, energy and brightness in your home’s décor is a wonderful way to connect with those glorious summer vibes all year round.

And as you get ready for sunny days to come, we’ve chosen a few favourites to help inspire your own Summer at Home. True to our ethos, each piece of furniture has been hand-picked to give you a diverse choice of items, pairing pristine quality and on trend interior design.

Want to take a closer peek at our stylish selection? Visit our showroom to enjoy special offers on our Summer at Home items and more. To keep you safe as you shop, we have extensive measures in place including hand sanitiser, floor markings, gloves and safety signs.

You can also book your very own Personal Appointment between 5pm – 8pm weekdays, or at a time that suits you best. Simply contact us by phone or email.

Sitting Pretty.

From the sun lounger to sumptuous lounging.

Whether you’re considering a cosy cuddler or a spacious corner, a brand new sofa is a joyful thing.

Let's Dine.

It’s not all barbecues.

On those long summer evenings, these gorgeous dining tables, benches and chairs make beautiful use of natural wood, bringing the al fresco feel indoors.

Raising the Bar.

Now here’s a treat.

Beautiful, refined and just little indulgent, a bar and wine rack is a delightful addition to your dining and entertaining space.

Here at Lifestyle Furniture, we pride ourselves on giving our lovely customers the best shopping experience possible.

As a family business, it’s in our DNA: striking a balance between carefully choosing the most beautiful, finely-crafted furniture and furnishings – and offering the warmest welcomes with a personal, friendly service.

It’s been a strange few months for all of us. But, as our wonderful island begins to ease the lockdown, we’ve been overjoyed to welcome customers back to our showroom. We were thrilled to have launched our online shop last month, but there’s nothing quite like being able to help our customers and offer advice face-to-face – albeit at 2 metres apart and with plenty of additional safety measures!

Although we’re taking extra precautions to protect our customers, we understand that not everyone is comfortable to head back out to the shops just yet – especially the most vulnerable.

That’s why we’re now offering Personal Appointments, giving you the chance to browse and shop privately at your convenience.

Simply contact us by phone or email to arrange your Personal Appointment slot between 5pm to 8pm weekdays – or at a time that suits you.

Our staff will be on hand to help whenever you need it, and our showroom has a number of safety measures in place, including sanitising stations, protective guards on desks, clean paper sheets to test our sumptuous beds, and more.

Pop in. Browse. Relax.

Welcome to Lifestyle Furniture

Welcome to Lifestyle Furniture

Like many businesses on the Island during these most challenging of times, we have had to temporarily close our doors to normal business here at Lifestyle Furniture.

Knowing that so many of our customers would be stuck at home for lengthy periods of time, just like us, we have decided to push ahead with our new website in double-quick time.

We wanted to give you something to enjoy. Something to help you start making plans for when life gradually reverts back to some form of normality. I’m sure like us you can’t wait!

Welcome to the new Lifestyle Furniture website. Make yourself at home.

Information

There’s quite a lot to explain, so grab a brew and we’ll take you through what you can and can’t do, and how to make the most of our new website.

IMPORTANT: We will be adding new products daily, so don’t forget to pop back to see all the latest items!

Your Wishlist

This is the best part, especially while we are all stuck at home.

Just create an account, browse through all the items for every room in the house, click the Add to wishlist button on items you really like and it will all be saved for future reference! It’s a great way of planning a new room.

You can view your wishlist here, and you can add or edit items as you want.

If you want to take your wishlist a step further, send it to us and we can advise what may be in stock, what may need special delivery, different colour/fabric options, etc.

We can also help you through our 0% finance forms and advise potential monthly payments.

Purchasing Online

To start with, we’ll be making Clearance items available to buy online immediately.

This is to ensure that you don’t miss out on a bargain, but please remember that we have limited delivery options until the situation changes – more on this below.

We will be bringing more sections live for online payments so please keep checking back.

REMEMBER: You can still call, email or message us through our Facebook page to make orders and for any general enquiries. We would love to hear from you.

Click here for our contact details.

Ordering and Delivery

As mentioned above, you can still contact us to discuss your requirements and order anything from our eclectic ranges. Click here for our contact details or message us through our Facebook page.

Deliveries are obviously more complicated in the current situation. Like everyone else, we are adhering to the non-essential travel guidance from our government.

However, as these restrictions gradually start to be lifted, we will contact you to arrange free Island-wide safe delivery of your new item(s).

Finance

As before, we are able to offer 0% Finance (subject to status).

It’s a great way of spreading the cost of your purchases. Simply find the item(s) you wish to purchase on our website – or you can pop into our showroom when we can reopen! – and contact us by email, telephone or through our Facebook page. We will do the rest.

Finally…

We just want to say a genuine and heartfelt ‘thank you’ to all the wonderful customers who have been so understanding during these difficult times, especially those waiting on delivery of their new items. We also wanted to thank everyone for showing us so much support, we have continued to take orders and you can’t believe how much this means to us and our team.

We’re all going through challenging times, but so many of our wonderful community are doing what they have to – staying at home. We will get through this and we can’t wait to welcome you back to our showroom.

In the meantime, please enjoy our new website and do send us any comments and suggestions.

Stay safe. We’ll see you all very soon.
