How are YOU going to make Father's Day special? We’ve asked the Barretts Dads what they’d like to get on their big day...
Our Flooring Specialist and Marketing Guru Sam just loves this Smart Book Light, which closes like a book, and can be fully opened and laid upright or flat. It's USB charged, and gives off an surprising amount of light! Great for camping, late night reading in bed, or adding some atmospheric cool to your home. Available in natural Walnut.
Gary from our Flooring Department carries on the trendy lighting design theme with the groovy Octagon One rechargeable desk lamp. It has a touch sensitivite switch which also controls the lamp brightness, giving you just the right amount of light. It has 5 different standing angles, and it was Gift of the Year in 2018! Available in natural Walnut and Maple.
Our store’s Assistant Manager Louis is hoping for one of our Bluetooth Speakers to be delivered on Father’s Day morning along with his breakfast in bed… although it’s highly unlikely daughter Victoria will give him chance to listen to anything! Apart from the National Anthem just before bedtime, obviously. Available in natural Beech and Walnut.
If you've had a delivery from Barretts, then it's probably from our very own Colin! He'd like to do a bit more travelling, and quite fancies this American Tourister Sunside hardshell suitcase, in Sunshine Yellow. Easy to spot on the luggage carousel, expandable and with a TSA approved combination lock. All this with a 3 year worldwide warranty. Book that flight now Colin! (After you've delivered those beds, sofas, chairs...)
Lorri, the head of our furniture department has two boys, so hopes to get two presents, so he’s gone for the retro combo of classic Camden chair in a very Jean Shrimpton houndstooth and a GPO 764 phone in Sweeney blue. Yes it’s a real working phone! You can use it to book a room at the Crossroads Motel and a table at a Berni Inn.
Store Manager Michael has gone for luxury and dropped several hints that he’d love one of our Conform swivel chairs, they swivel, they tilt, they extend, they recline, they come in fabric or leather, they are THE most comfortable swivel chairs we’ve ever had and if you’re reading this, Michael’s daughters, please please oh please get him one so he’s happier at work and stops chaining us to a radiator until we’ve sold enough curtains. Thanks.
Although… store owner Jill Barrett has suggested a Hypnos pillow for her fiance Michael as maintaining correct neck support can reduce snoring by up to 80% #JustSaying
