New for March – Desktop Clutter-Busters from STORE

Monday, February 21st, 2011

We just had to tell you about a couple of stylish new products that are coming into stock in the next couple of weeks from our chic European cousins…

Mobile phone charges are so boring, so our clever designer friends have come-up with The Solar Tree. This stylish wooden tree is covered in tiny leaf-like solar panels which offer a really unusual take on charging the mobile. Better still it’ll save your electricity bill too!

The Solar Tree will be available in STORE from mid March and retails at £110.  It’s made from solid wood and stands 22cm high. The Solar Tree containers both a USB and mini USB port plus cable.

We also love this neat idea to tidy your desktop and avoid cable clutter. Our new Desk Hub Cube has all the necessary slots to plug your peripherals in alongside your camera SD cards etc etc. It’s a real desk top clutter buster.

Our neat glossy white Desk Hub Cube is available at STORE mid March 2011 for £23

Finally, it may not be one of our famous storage solutions but we couldn’t resist ordering this simple Standby Button too. The button simply connects to your PC via a USB port and is a really strong visual reminder to prompt you to save a bit of electricity when you’re nipping off for a coffee.

The Standby Button is available in STORE from mid March and costs £10


Neat new ideas from STORE for Guest Bedrooms

Thursday, February 3rd, 2011

Solving customers storage issues in their guest bedrooms has always presented us with something of a dilemma. We’ve looked at several fold-up guest beds designed for occasional use and whilst many of them have clever double uses and fold into neat storage solutions when not in use they always seem to take-up precious storage space in space bedrooms that often have to double as home offices and general storage rooms.

However, we finally think we’ve found the solution in the form of something called the Smooff Lounge Cushy from our Dutch friends at Smooff HQ.  TheLounge Cushy is a super lightweight (just 5kgs) fold-up mattress with a special foam filling that moulds around and supports your body.  We think it’s a great idea for occasional use and for unexpected overnight visitors. Better still the colourful  Smooff can be folded away in seconds and then neatly stored in the bottom of a wardrobe etc. in the morning.

So if you’re looking for a temporary roll-up guest bed that’s super comfy and doesn’t take-up half the spare room then look no further than Smooff.

The Smooff range of roll-up guest beds is available in STORE from 2-week in February and includes both adult and children’s versions
