1. Mallani Storage Seat

‘Had been looking for a storage unit with seat, to fit in our hall, for a long time. The Mallani storage seat fits the bill perfectly. It is an excellent piece of furniture which is functional and aesthetically pleasing. The service we received from Myakka was first class and I have no hesitation in recommending them and this product.’ Sandra from Cardiff, August 2011

2. Moti Ari Cushions

‘We purchased the footstool a few months ago and feel in love with it. When we spotted these cushions on a 3 for 2 we HAD to have them. They are so very beautiful. They finish our room off to perfection (that is until we see something else on your website). Thanks Myakka!’ Janet from Lincoln, May 2011

3. Thakat 4 Drawer Column

Well this once again surpassed my expectations - I am thrilled with my purchase completely and am so sorry that I did not know about Myakka years ago. Brilliant service - speedy delivery and polite driver. I give Myakka 10 stars!’  Judith from High Wycombe, July 2011

4. Surin Infinity Table

A wonderful design crafted from a single piece of hard wood. It is admired by any one that sees it. It is a size that "fits in" but remains very usable. Words are inadequate to sum up its impact. Just excellent.’  Cyril from Monmouth, August 2011

5 . Chandra Coffee Table

‘Great table, perfect size and shape. Would highly recommend both the product and company. Service was excellent and speedy. Delivery was on schedule and delivery men were polite and helpful.’ Lesley from Hook, May 2011

6. Mallani Corner TV unit

We bought this TV unit along with the petite console table and the nest of tables and it has totally transformed our room! The storage in the cupboard at the bottom is fantastic and we can shut away the stereo along with all the DVD's etc that used to be clutter. This range looks so much more expensive than it is and I won’t hesitate to come back for more.’ Karen from Kilwinning, June 2011, who even included a picture of her new Mallani Corner TV unit and Contemporary Nest of Tables

7. Hathi Cupboard

This cupboard sits in a little alcove on my landing outside the bathroom where it fits perfectly! I use it to keep clean towels handy. My house is quite small, and I love the way Myakka do scaled down pieces to fit smaller properties. Excellent service as ever!’  Jacki from Scarborough, June 2011

8. Antique Sari Seat Pad

‘I'm really thrilled with these cushions - they are luxurious, and the quality is great. Delivery was very quick. I'd definitely recommend the service to anyone.’   Mrs Gadd from Dursley, August 2011

9. Hathi Blanket Box

Completely satisfied customer. Beautiful box - looks amazing on my top landing - will definitely buy from Myakka again. The Customer service was unbeatable - there was a bit of trouble with the delivery company as they said it had been delivered when it had not - I got straight onto Myakka and problem was solved immediately. Other firms could learn a lot re customer service from this company. Thank you.’  Jane from Cowes, July 2011

And finally with a total 278 customer reviews….
