I’m amazed how similar New England in America is to certain parts of England and how the design in England has influenced the design on the East Coast of America. And you see the similarities running through Interior Design and Furniture, Cuisine and in particular Men and Ladies Fashion. So the New England preppy style really comes from the English traditional look but with a twist as they have added in more color and more flamboyancy. Here at New England Lifestyle we draw on a lot of inspiration from looking at architectural designs and interior design companies from the New England area.
A lot of people say that our furniture reminds them of a holiday home that they would have visited in their childhood and the great thing about white furniture is that it gives you an uplifting feeling and unconsciously somehow reminds you of the beach and of that feeling of weathered wood and white sand. When people visit my house they are always completely wowed, as everything in my house is white. So I have white wooden floor boards, white walls, white canvas curtains, white sofas, white bed linen, and then the only real color I add is through using cushions and soft furnishings, bringing in navy blues, reds…No Comments

I have been involved in property development for the last 25 years and we have many customers who are buying new houses or building extensions or even building their own house from scratch. And a lot of our customers come to meet me at our show room and bring their plans with them so that I can advise them not only on the furniture that they would like to buy but also on finishing off their houses or helping with interior design. We have customers that come from all corners of the UK, also Spain, Portugal, The Netherlands, Germany and I’m more than happy to spend the whole day or an afternoon discussing in detail their furniture requirements and even drawing onto their plans our furniture to scale. If you would like any help and advice is best to ring our office and to either arrange an appointment or to make sure you come in a day when Nick Burrin is working.No Comments

At New England Lifestyle we also want our customer service to be how we would want it to be for ourselves. When you place an order with us we will always give you an estimated delivery timescale within two to five weeks depending to where you’re located within the UK.
We deliver all of our furniture normally with a two-man delivery crew using our own vans with a 2-hour time slot. When we arrive at people’s houses, we always ask which room the furniture is going in and have a look at the room so that we can assess the best route for access. We will then unpack the furniture, put the furniture in place and take all the packaging away for recycling. We always give our customers about ten days notice of the day that we would like to deliver and their 2-hour time slot. And we’re always amazed how satisfied our customers are with our delivery service. If you have any suggestions to improve our service we would only be too pleased to hear from you.
