Gypsy - Calming Aqua Mango

Tuesday, 17 June 2014

With its signature wave patterned plinth, bevelled top with antiqued metal knobs, all finished off with a softening aqua wash, our exclusive Gypsy Range is something a little different from the norm. Made from solid mango wood our Gypsy Range would look great in any room of your home with its sturdy storage pieces and practical coffee and side tables.

One of our most popular pieces is the pretty Gypsy Petite Storage Seat. Finished with a natural cotton cover this is the perfect perch for sitting and taking your shoes off and then storing them underneath to keep your hallway or conservatory looking neat and tidy.

 The Gypsy Glazed Cabinet makes an ideal bookshelf or display cabinet and would look lovely in a kitchen, dining room or hallway.  Perfect for both storing or showing off your favourite crockery or tea set this unit is as pretty as a vintage teacup!

One of our most popular storage ideas is the Gypsy Petite Six Drawer Chest. Designed to take up as little floor space as possible but offers lots of storage with its six useful drawers perfect for clothes in the bedroom or bits and pieces in the hallway.

The Gypsy Artisan Tables are available in two sizes both with the same intricate detailing on the legs. Both the side table and the coffee table arrive ready assembled and ready to use with hexagonal table tops and minaret style patterned legs.

The Gypsy Range is perfect for a standalone statement piece or works equally well with a group with other Gypsy pieces in a room. This range is perfect for your hallway, bedroom, living room or any room of your home.

Aping About!

Tuesday, 10 June 2014

Once a year the whole of the Myakka teams leaves HQ and heads out for a day of fun staff training. This year we visited Go Ape at Moors Valley Country Park in Dorset for a day of fun aping about and swinging through the trees.

Despite the ridiculous heavy rain on Wednesday, twenty five members of the Myakka team put on a rather unflattering safety harness and a rain coat and made our way to a safety briefing – the most important lesson being always stay attached! This is easier said than done as there was a lot of clipping, unclipping, other ropes and wires to deal with.

Once we were suitably briefed we started the first stage of the five stage course with an easy going course to ease us into the techniques and to make sure we had all listened to the safety briefing.  Once we had all completed that and answered some safety questions we were let loose on the rest of the four stages of the course.  After each course there was a long zip wire that was for most of us the highlight of each stage, especially the wire on stage three that was the longest and the fastest. This was the hardest wire to reach, as an extra ladder had to be climbed to get enough height to make the zip wire as long as possible.

After we had all come down from the trees having completing five challenging courses which included crawling through barrels, climbing up numerous rope ladders and cargo nets, balancing across rope bridges as well an extreme rated Tarzan, swing which was particularly scary, we sat down to a delicious BBQ -  despite the chilly weather.

A great day was had by all, not even the rain, try as it might, could dampen our spirits! A big thank you goes to the Go Ape team who made the day a real success!
