We worked closely along side Swank Interiors on this exciting project. Lanassir Lawes at Swank Interiors had the creative freedom and vision to come up with some stunning but homely designs for each room in the show home, with the aim of emulating a stylish, modern day family home.

    Lannassir managed to achieve her aim by handpicking items from our 40,000 square foot showroom here at John Doe of Diss. Everything in the Roxbury Drive showhome from the flooring, dining furniture and curtains to lighting and beds is straight from our Diss superstore

    Roxbury Drive is a stunning new development of mixed housing built by Cloverfield Homes including two, three and four bedroom houses and three bedroom bungalows, all with generous parking and gardens. Roxbury Drive is superbly located on the outskirts of East Harling, a thriving rural village in Norfolk with an extensive range of facilities.

    The development has been planned, designed and built in a style sympathetic to its rural location with each property given its own individuality, while retaining the practical needs of today’s lifestyle with generous parking and gardens. All of the houses have been built to the latest Building Regulations for efficiency and environmental impact.

  • #Sleeptember ... Promoting healthy sleep across Norfolk & Suffolk!

    Beds Diss Mattresses Norfolk Suffolk
    #Sleeptemper is here!!... A whole month dedicated to promoting healthy sleep across Norfolk & Suffolk, are you on board?

    Considering we spend at least a third of our lives sleeping, the bed that you're actually sleeping on can have a huge impact on your every day life!

    Based on years of research, The Sleep Council recommend that you change your mattress at least every 7 years. Here's some key sleep facts to consider:

    • Majority of Britons (70%) now sleep for seven hours or less per night with more than a quarter (27%) experiencing poor quality sleep on a regular basis. And the number of Britons getting just five-to-six hours per night has risen dramatically in the past three years: more than a third of us get by on that amount of sleep compared to 27% in 2010. (The Sleep Council's Great British Bedtime Report, March 2013)

    • Getting a good night's sleep is just as important as diet and exercise when trying to lose weight. People who shifted their sleeping pattern from less than six hours to between seven and eight hours a night put on 2.4kg less weight over a six year period. (Eastern Ontario Research Institute and Laval University in Quebec, September 2012)

    • 51% of adults struggle to nod off or remain sleep. Women suffer far more than men with 75% reporting problems compared with 25% of men (Professor Colin Espie, University of Glasgow and Sleepio study, November 2011)

    • A bed may have deteriorated by as much as 70% from its 'as new' state after 10 years. It also showed that beds as little as six years old could offer significantly less support and comfort than a new one, thanks to wear and tear not just from body weight and movement but also sweat and debris such as skin, scales, hair etc. (Research by the Furniture Industry Research Association, 2011)

    Beds, Norfolk, Mattresses, Diss, Divan Sets, Suffolk, Sleep, Bury St Edmunds

    • One in six women acknowledged that their tiredness was caused by an uncomfortable bed. And seven out of 10 women would be prepared to pay £500 and considerably more to buy a new one. (Sleep Council 'Sleeping Beauty' survey, October 2011)
      • We need at least six hours of sleep a night to recharge your batteries and learn new things the next day scientists have claimed. Light, dreamless sleep which can take up half the night allows our brain to recharge our learning capacity. (Researchers at University of California, March 2011)


      • A recent French clinical study to compare sleep on a new bed versus an old bed showed that both young and old experience not necessarily more sleep but better quality – that is, less disturbed and more recuperative sleep – with three times fewer physical movements and two times fewer micro-awakenings being recorded. (Etude clinique initiée par l'Association pour la Promotion de la Literie, en collaboration avec le Professeur Damien Léger et l'European Sleep Center, 2010.)

      • Adding regular moderate exercise to a daily routine for 16 weeks showed middle-aged to older people could fall asleep about 15 minutes earlier and sleep roughly 45 minutes longer. (Stanford University, February 2011)

      • One in 10 people attribute poor sleep to a bad bed. (Sleep Council 'Grumpy Old Women' survey, 2006)


      • Instead of hitting the coffee take a 20 minute nap. A short kip can give you as much energy as two cups of strong coffee, but the effects are longer lasting. Twenty minutes is sufficient to turn off the nervous system and recharge the whole body - 30 minutes, however, is long enough to put you in a deep sleep and leave you feeling groggy when you wake. (Gregg Jacobs, Sleep Disorders Center at the University of Massachusetts Medical School; Jersey Evening Post, March 2003).

      • When replacing an uncomfortable bed, a new bed was associated with an increase of 42 minutes sleep. (Sleep Council and Dr Chris Idzikowski two-year research project 1999-2001)

      • Ergonomic studies have shown that couples sleep better in a bigger bed. Before trials only 15% said they would buy a larger than standard bed while afterwards, 50% said they would. (Ergonomic Pilot Study of Bed Size and Sleep Quality by ICE Ergonomics, February 1995)

  • Commercial Furnishing & Flooring @ The Oaksmere - Eye, Suffolk


    Based in Eye, Suffolk and originating from Tudor and Victorian origins, The Oaksmere has achieved a distinct blend of contemporary style across the hotel including its 10 individual boutique bedrooms. When the Oaksmere asked us to help them bring their vision of a new state of the art restaurant, kitchen and lounge area to life, we knew it had to be something unique, whilst carrying their brand of exquisite quality.

    We made the tables seen in the restaurant out of Karndean flooring in order to give them a distinct, stylish look whilst knowing that the quality of the materials meant that they were built to last. Once the tables had been cut to the required shape, we then edged the Karndean with a copper finish to add that extra element of class that The Oaksmere is known for. In order to keep with a consistent theme, we also floored the restaurant with Karndean. Karndean is a leading global brand of luxury vinyl flooring, known for it's durability and style.

    The lobby features leather models from our Vintage collection, placed to give off a warm, classic feel that's naturally complimented by the impressive, resident Victorian fire place. Due to the existing character featured throughout the hotel, there was no need for dominating ornaments or extras. Instead we added hand picked finishing touches that we felt enhanced the individual features of each room. An example of this would be the white Stags Head located above the fire place in the waiting lobby. Similar to the lobby, the Bar area also featured strong character through the inherant Victorian windows and wooden beams. We felt that simple hanging bulbs and steel, rustic stools would compliment the area nicely without taking the attention away from the existing craftsmanship.

    Each of the 10 individual boutique bedrooms feature luxury, British made Hypnos beds, distinct wallpaper and hand picked bedroom furniture that we felt complimented each individual room whilst keeping in line with what The Oaksmere was trying to achieve.
