Preparing for the Christmas Rush

Market trends show that customers are looking for pieces of furniture that offer storage and style, as well as function. Having already earned a reputation for excellence in manufacturing high quality sofas and upholstered beds, Whitemeadow is proud to be able to cater to all demands with a range of multi-purpose furniture.

This time of year sees people preparing to welcome friends and family over in the next few months, especially with so many not being able to do so earlier in the year. We expect to see a higher than usual demand for sofa beds, storage stools and additional seats to accommodate the extra guests that have been missing in our homes for much of this year.

With many homes restricted in size, many people are trying to make the most of their available space. Multi-functional furniture is a God-send at this time of year, so it’s worth investing now in sofa bed displays in time for the Christmas rush.

Below are a few of our multi-use heroes!

Mikki and Kitty Bed Stools:

Brand new this year are our Mikki and Kitty Bed Stools! When used as stools they are handy for an extra seat or table to put a tray of drinks on, but when opened up they turn into a handy single bed for the overnight stay! Available in a huge array of fabrics, make sure you order yours now in time to display in store for the Christmas rush!

Maison Sofa Bed

The Maison sofa bed is based on inviting proportions and a super comfortable sit. It’s clean and contemporary shape exudes a feel of comfortable, modern living, that is versatile enough for most living spaces. The range includes several sofa bed options, which can be upgraded to include an exclusive Hypnos sofa bed mattress, a first for the brand.

Brixton Ottoman bed

For those wanting to invest in a new bed, either for the guest room or themselves, the Brixton Ottoman bed frame is a great choice. The Brixton is one of our bestselling bed frames, distinctive and bold in nature, it creates a super soft, luxurious and inviting look. And with the added storage, its perfect for any bedroom.



Many of our upholstery and bed ranges come with an optional storage or accent stools. At this time of year they will double up as extra seats, places to store bags and coats and even make-shift side tables. Make sure you have one on display with your sofas and beds, as our research suggests up to 50% of customers will buy an accent piece when displayed with the sofa or bed of their choice.

Please note, that with pent-up demand at an all time high, we advise you to get any pre-Christmas orders in as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Speak to your sales manager today if you are looking to refresh your displays in time for Christmas.
