Celebrate with Irvine Interiors and win £300 of gift vouchers
If you’ve got an unexpected guest turning up for Christmas this year; if you’re looking for an unusual gift for a houseproud friend; or if you just want to get a new mattress so you can be sure of a good night’s sleep over the festive season, Irvine Interiors could be the place to find what you need.
Since the sale of the Lerwick Building Centre in July, owners Leslie and Raewyn Irvine have been able to concentrate on the interiors side of their business, offering an even better, more focused service. And, with 12 years’ experience of supplying furniture, Raewyn is a good person to turn to.
There’s certainly plenty to choose from at the large, well-stocked showroom on the Gremista Industrial Estate, with new ranges of occasional furniture for a smaller buy, plus plenty of leather sofas, dining sets and suites available for immediate delivery. And if you do need to find extra sleeping space for guests over the festive season, there are sofa beds and fold-ups available too.
It’s next door in the beds unit that Raewyn really starts to get passionate, though. “Yeah, I’ve got quite enthusiastic about mattresses,” she laughs. “People think it’s so boring to talk about mattresses, but when you learn what’s in them, and why, for instance, that mattress was really dodgy, you do get a bit passionate. So when people come in and say to me, ‘I just want a cheap mattress’, I say, ‘Do you really want a cheap mattress?’”
And without further ado, she gives me a demonstration of how to tell if your pillow is past it. You’ll have to visit Raewyn yourself if you want to find out – just don’t be surprised if you come away with a new mattress or three-piece suite as well.
