I came up with the idea of the blog 'Chic & Cheerful' while going through the process of planning to build my first home. This was a very stressful process and I found it very hard as I had no one to turn to for advice. I wanted to help others who are also going through a build, give advice, talk about design ideas and home decor that I love. I also want to document our journey of building our first home together.

Chic & Cheerful's Visit to Robert's Furniture
Last month I was invited to meet the
lovely team at Robert’s Furniture in Ashbourne County Meath.
I was blown away by the story of this
family based company, the success they have had over the years, their story of
how they would not let the recession bring them down and their passion for high
Robert’s Furniture strives to merge
design, style, quality fabrics and value for money along with their first class
Robert’s Furniture specialises in the
repair, reupholstery and recovery of both residential and commercial furniture.
A perfect way to preserve family heirlooms, restore high quality furniture, and
to steer clear of overpriced mass produced furniture.
At Roberts Furniture there are a range of services available from
custom made furniture to the reupholstery of preloved pieces. With the vast
variety of fabrics available your piece of furniture will leave their warehouse
Robert’s Furniture was set up in 1949
and to this day stands for the same qualities it started with – excellence, creativity
and value for money. When recession hit, Robert’s Furniture decided that they
would not let it bring them down, instead they looked to the future and further
into reupholstery. This turned to be a massive success for the company leading
to many new contacts both residential and commercial. Robert’s furniture has
had contracts with Brown Thomas, Tattersalls Ireland as well as serval restaurants,
bars and embassies.
Since meeting the team at Robert’s
Furniture I now see the importance of preserving furniture. High quality
furniture if properly cared for can last a lifetime and can also help the environment
against mask production and throwaway consumerism.
I was always a fan of revamping
furniture to give it new life, but I now see the importance of preserving furniture
– it is good for the environment and your pocket.
I would like to thank Robert’s Furniture
for inviting me to their showroom and workshop and for teaching the importance
