We're looking forward to Spring

Friday, 27 December 2013

Every year in December we battle through the cold and grey weather to spend a week or so on location completing our photography for our new Spring catalogue. For this photo shoot we were based in two locations, Belmont House in Salisbury and Bazeley House in Micheldever. This was the third time we have been to Belmont House but our first visit to Bazeley House which was a beautiful house set in the Hampshire countryside.

The new catalogue which will be ready for early March and will feature new lines in the Surin and Chandra ranges and 11 new pieces added to our Kediri Teak range.  As well as the new furniture lines we also have lots of new soft furnishings and accessories that will appear in the catalogue.
The shoot took place over six days with the team making the most of all the interesting and different rooms that both houses had to offer.

Once again, we worked with the very talented photographer David McDowall who we have worked with now for a number of shoots. We always try hard to capture the detail of the furniture in a real setting so it can take more time to capture the perfect image, with lots of prop swapping in the process!

The design and creative team are now busy working hard to turn all their lovely images into a beautiful catalogue full of exciting new pieces designed especially for you. Don’t miss out… if you’re not already on the Myakka mailing list, make sure you sign up so you’re included in the first mailing of the new catalogue hot off the press in March.  Simply click here to get yours.

Create the perfect first impression

Wednesday, 11 December 2013

This time of year always brings more guests popping in and out and the occasional surprise visitor. Make sure your hallway is prepared for all that the season throws at it with our top tips to help you create the perfect first impression.

To help keep your hallway looking spick and span, a colourful doormat is the perfect addition. Our range of Hug Rugs are made from 100% recycled material and are all manufactured in the UK. Designed to absorb water, mud and dirt these rugs are a great way to keep your hallway looking great - especially if you have pets!. Our 'Welcome' Hug Rug is the perfect option to greet your guests.

Hallways are often a dumping ground for shoes and boots. We have all been guilty of kicking our shoes off the moment we get through the door. Give your shoes the home they need and a seat for you whilst you put them on and take them off with one of our Storage Seats. Designed by our team here at Myakka these storage seats make the perfect piece of furniture for your hallway and are available in a number of designs and finishes. Two of our favourites include the Hathi Storage Seat complete with hand carved elephants and the Gypsy Petite Storage Seat which is perfect for smaller spaces.

A well placed mirror in your hallway can make your space seem bigger and lighter. We have a great range of mirrors in a number of different designs and styles including styles in our classic Sheesham wood in our Hathi and Mallani ranges or something a little different like our Cream Distressed Mirror or Gold Heart Vintage Mirror.

Hallways can often become overcome by clutter so create somewhere to store everything with some of cleverly designed storage furniture. A console table is a great option for a hallway as it won’t demand too much floor space, is narrow enough not to overwhelm the space but still provides mountains of storage. Our Mallani Petite Console Table is great for all spaces and provides storage with two drawers and top surface and a large slatted shelf. The Mallani Open & Shut is a really useful piece of furniture that will fit your hallway perfectly. Designed with three roomy drawers with three open shelves, this unit provides plenty of storage options without taking up too much space.

For the finishing touches don’t forget a colourful rug can make your hallway looked smart and friendly. A runner is the perfect option in the hallway as it protects your floor form all the traffic and looks great. We have a great selection of Kilim Rugs and runners available in our classic Kilim designs such as the Bird Kilim and Ooty Kilim. We also have a great range of new Eco Braided Rugs which would be perfect for a high traffic area like the hallway. Coordinating colours and braided together to create a flat weave rug that will add a lovely splash of colour to your hallway.

We have got lots of ideas and suggestions to help you make the most of your hallway and create the perfect first impressions and there is still time for pre-Christmas delivery. For in stock items including large furniture, order by midnight on Sunday 15th December and for small furniture gifts and accessories order by Sunday 22nd December for delivery on Christmas Eve.

Myakka on TV!

So, we were delighted to be asked by ITV to help Peter Andre and his team with the new series of 60 MINUTE MAKEOVER and today a makeover with some of our furniture is on at 2pm.

A summary of today’s episode from the Radio Times….
Peter and the team travel to Camberley in Surrey, where they do their best to bring the vibrancy of India to Ali and Vini's lounge and dining room - all thanks to their daughter Kalyani.

The Myakka furniture featured in today’s episode includes the Mallani Slat Coffee Table, Mallani Small Dining Table with 4 Banana Leaf Chairs, Mallani Glazed Cabinet and our popular Mallani Small Bedside Cabinet.  We are sure these are all going to look great in Ali and Vini’s home and bring a real taste of the East to their home.

We can’t wait to see the finished rooms  and hope that our furniture can go some way to making the perfect living and dining room and Ali and Vini and that it is a welcome surprise to the pair. If this make-over inspires you to make some updates to your home, don’t forget if your order in stock large furniture by Sunday 15th December for pre-Christmas delivery.

Don’t forget to tune in today at 2pm to ITV1 to see the team work their magic. We are going to be watching from our desks so we can get some pictures to you as soon as we have them. Don’t forget to let us know what you think on today's make over on Facebook, Twitter and Google+. If you miss the episode today, you can catch up with it on ITV player. We will get the link for you as soon as it is live.

Shop when and where it suits you!

Tuesday, 10 December 2013

In September this year we launched our new responsive website. In simple terms this means that whatever ‘device’ you chose to use to shop with, the Myakka website should be easy to use from them. So whether you are using a tablet, mobile phone or computer – we have made shopping easy!

Whichever device you view the Myakka website on; for example a mobile phone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer, the website will work for you adjusting itself to suit your device. The Myakka website will respond to any device to use to make it easy to read and find all the information you need.

This makes for very easy Christmas shopping as you can shop whilst out on the go on your mobile, or whilst watching TV and using your tablet just go to the Myakka website and it will respond to whichever device you are using. This means when you are looking into the detail about the product you shouldn’t need to resize the screen at all to be able to view all the infor
mation you need.

Recently we have worked hard to make sure the stock availability advertised on site is as up to date and as accurate as possible. We think that this is especially important for this time of year for making sure people get their orders on time.

You can also be assured that the Myakka website is 100% safe to shop on. All your details are kept safe and secure, even when you are shopping whilst out and about.  Plus to make life easier, especially when shopping from your mobile, you can always pay using your PayPal account which saves you having to enter all your card details.

We have tried to make it a pleasure to shop with us however you choose to do it. But if you think we could make some improvements then please let us know, drop us an email to and we will look at what we can do to improve.

Happy shopping!
