Sometimes we might be guilty of talking about the list of brands we stock in a way that sounds like everyone should be aware of what they produce and the story behind them. We have come to know a great deal about the offerings out there but that doesn't mean everyone does...
More realistically, the general public won't know a great deal about the individual brands we stock until they are doing a bit of their own research when they decide to fit a floor or perhaps replace a sofa.
So we thought we'd put together this handy list of our brands and a brief description of what you can expect from products produced by them.
At WB Jamieson we have always had a focus on quality. Quality means a few things to us: products that serve their purpose exceptionally well, are made to last and are durable, have a design which looks beautiful, unique and is original.
So below we have divided some of our biggest brands into categories such as flooring, furniture and soft furnishings and added a brief description as to what you can expect from their offerings.
Biegert & Funk
Biegert & Funk are the brand behind one of the most striking and contemporary clock designs: the Qlocktwo. A clock that is very different from any other clock on the market and one that looks incredibly stylish. The Qlocktwo comes in a plethora of styles from small wristwatches to bedside table clocks and the classic which is the most widely recognised of the Qlocktwo designs. All variants feature a square face with in a range of interesting fascia materials and colours with a seemingly random collection of letters cut from the face. It is only when the clock is turned on you can appreciate that the letter spell out the time, backlit by LED's. A truly fascinating timepiece which is as much a conversation starter as a time teller.
Bonaldo has been making furniture for a while. Since 1936 to be exact. Bonaldo is synonymous with luxury. Made in Italy, Bonaldo delivers design that you would expect from a country that is known for it's output of authentic, high-quality, luxurious designs utilising fine materials and sharp modern design.
