Friday, March 15th, 2013

The offers section of Heal’s is currently bursting with plenty of great deals and up to 70% off some items, so is a definite must for fab Friday bargain hunters.

Here are some fab kitchen accessories for kitting out a fresh design kitchen.


Designer mugs

As fan’s of MissPrint designs, it’s a brilliant bargain to find the green woodland design mug for just £2.10. Buy a set of four and still have change from a tenner.

Quirky contemporary dining accessories

We love the quirky design of the Bliss in the Woods acorn salt and pepper set, with the ceramic acorns pots sitting on an oak tree shaped leaf (made of oak wood, of course). The set is now half price at £17.50.

Kitchen baking weighing scalesBlack and white contemporary kitchen scales

If you’re going to be baking or measuring cooking ingredients, then you need a reliable set of kitchen scales. These Typhoon electronic kitchen scales are sleek in design, yet lively in style. Choose from a multicoloured or black dot design, now half price at just £18.

And finally, it’s not for the kitchen, but we can’t resist mentioning this rug….

Purple rug home accessories

The purple flat weave wool rug was £230, but is now reduced to £69. Great for adding a splash of colour to your floor and an extra layer of warmth for your feet to step on.

Luxury fresh design felted wool pebble rug

Luxury pebble effect rug

If you’re back at work, but still pining for the beach, then here’s a contemporary rug that could help keep your beach memories alive.

The Brighton Beach rug is cleverly designed to create the effect of pebbles on a beach. It’s made from felted wool, so is super soft to walk on or sit on.

Like a beach, each of the ‘pebbles’ is different, with varying colours and darker and lighter shades of stone.

It’s a brilliant and fresh design and so effective. The Brighton Beach rug is available in two sizes, small and large, from Frances Hunt.

The rug is currently on offer, with 20% off the usual price.

This cushion depicts a scene that’s all too familiar at the moment – a rainy day!

The cosy cushion by designer Donna Wilson is knitted in Scotland from 100% lambswool. The front of the cushion has blue and white fluffy clouds with rain pouring down and it’s filled with duck feathers.

Donna Wilson is renowned for her collection of fun and quirky knitted cushions and rugs and the Rainy Day cushion, along with some of her other work, can be purchased from Heal’s.

Jigsaw rug and puzzle rug from Unique Boutique

Contemporary felt jigsaw rugModern and contemporary rug ideas

We’ve just discovered Unique Boutique and they certainly live up to their name, by selling some unique and quirky products!

The jigsaw rug and create your own puzzle rug caught our eye, as they’re both rather novel – they’re made from woollen felt and have an interactive element to them, as you can change the design and look to suit your mood.

With the jigsaw rug, you can design your perfect rug layout by putting the jigsaw pieces together in the design you want. The pieces come in stone and lime green colours for a modern look.

The puzzle rug is made of white woollen felt with an all over cut-out design. It comes with lots of tiny triangles in a rainbow of colours that can be placed in position on the rug as you see fit. Have them as an ordered pattern, or create random designs. It’s bit more fiddly than the jigsaw rug, but still looks like lots of fun.

There are some other similar rugs available too, so check them out if you’re after a rug with a difference.

Iconic stamp design rug

Purple Queen's head rug Pink stamp rug wall art

Remember the Stamp Collection mugs we featured before? Well now you can take your love of stamps even further, with these great stamp-inspired rugs.

Made from 100% New Zealand wool, the stamp rugs feature the distinctive image of the Queen on a plain coloured background. The edges of the rugs are white, finished off nicely with the classic scalloped detail you see on the stamps. The rugs measure 1.2m long by 1m wide (although other sizes are apparently available) and come in a choice of colours, representing the appropriate stamp prices:

Purple / burgundy rug – 1p stamp

Pink rug – 16p stamp

Grey rug – 50p stamp

Olive rug – 56p stamp

Red rug – 62p stamp

If you don’t want to use the rug on the floor (or can’t bear the thought of standing on the Queen’s head), then the rugs can also be hung on your wall as wall art.

The quirky stamp rugs are sold by Isabel Ballardie Interiors. Sadly they cost somewhat more in price than the stamps they represent!

Anorak kissing rabbits picnic rug

Kissing rabbit rug

Kissing rabbit rug

If you told me before that I’d be marking our 500th post by writing about kissing rabbits, I wouldn’t have believed you.

But wonders never cease and we couldn’t resist writing about this fun picnic rug!

Produced by Anorak and featuring a kissing rabbit design, the lightweight cotton blanket has a nylon back, which makes it perfect for use outside. The rug folds up really well and, when done correctly, you end up with two handles at the top for easy carrying.

The red rabbit design is rather unusual and you can’t help but be charmed by it. The rug is available from Heal’s, who also have more great products in their outdoor range that will be perfect for using for summer picnics and other outdoor dining activities.
