Homesmiths Interior Design Ltd are an innovative interior design company who produce beautiful interior spaces. They also specialise in practical solutions for institutions and homes with special requirements for residents with special needs. We were very lucky to be asked to be part of their solution for the Young Epilepsy Centre in Lingfield, Surrey. We created tough, durable, but soft and user-friendly beanbag furniture in close collaboration with Jenna and the Homesmiths team. We are very grateful for their generous and wonderful review of our work and the way in which we work.

Business news from Edge Beanbags – Amazon Direct: we have declined Amazon’s kind offer of taking our portfolio directly. A couple of reasons: 1. We enjoy working for and with our customers – we get ideas, we get to meet people, to push ourselves, to help people and generally bounce 2. Online business we can do ourselves directly. We are after a bricks and mortar retailer who can let people touch and play and say….”ooo”. Similarly, we believe a bricks and mortar retailer would also bounce ideas around, if we get the right one. 3. Top line, financially, their proposal did not make sense….and Amazon declined a cheaper product solution saying they wanted our premium product but ……for the pricing that they wanted. So here we are: if you are after an Edge Beanbags beanbag, whether a Techbed, outdoor, indoor, bespoke….you are going to have to come through us xxxxx
Having returned from our trip away (business as usual now) we found out that we have won an award! We have been awarded the Best of Houzz 2017 – Client Satisfaction! ‘Houzz’ is an online platform “for home renovation and design, bringing homeowners and home professionals together in a uniquely visual community”. We take customer satisfaction very seriously. We make our products using top quality materials and create by hand with skill and care. Whether you have ordered a Techbed, a Hollow, or a bespoke creation, your product is accompanied through its journey to you with a level of customer service that we take pride in. We are thrilled to bits that Houzz has awarded us this accolade in recognition of this and we thank all our customers for trusting us with their projects and for giving us such positive feedback.
A very happy new year from all of us. We have been a bit quiet on the social media front so far this year but will update facebook & twitter shortly but thought we would do a quick update here first. We have reloaded our beans, Paul making the 6 hour round trip in a 4 metre van in record time. The leather sewing machine, which was fabulous, has been returned although we can call upon it again should we require it. The leather has been an absolutely fantastic learning experience for all us. As an example, the leather poof attached, we kept the first one, the second one went to Paul’s mother (our biggest and most helpful critic!) as this is what she wanted for Christmas and we will be selling the third one. We have a rather large corporate job on at the moment, but can not shout about it until their launch, but all is in place because….. ….Paul & Philippa are away for a couple of days to celebrate Paul’s 50th Birthday: we will be closing the shops down from the afternoon of the 9th January through to the afternoon of the 17th January. More to follow upon our return, but rest assured, we have beans, we have our other secret filling, we have the inners for large beanbags, for pet beds, for natural outers, we have fabric and most importantly, we have each other :-). Have a good one!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to one and all xx We are despatching until Wednesday 21st December, when we will be closing our shops at 1.00pm. For UK Mainland deliveries of Techbed, Techbed Maxi and 3+ Techbed Minis and all our large beanbags, we will be using Interlink Next Working day. For NI, Highlands and Islands, we will be using first class post for all Techbeds and couriers for larger beanbags. By closing our shops, it gives us a day’s grace to check that all of our Interlink deliveries have been made and if something hits the fan, we can try and do something about it :-). We understand that some local Post Offices may be on strike, and I am afraid that even the power of Edge Beanbags can not avert this. On the bright side, we would like to thank everyone who has thus far ordered from us and we hope that the recipients enjoy their beanbags as much as we did making them. We will be opening our shops again on December 24th with a view to re-starting despatches from the 30th December. Have a good one Big hugs Paul, Philippa, Clare, Jane & Fiona xx
https://www.facebook.com/techbed/shop We’re just thinking that if people spend time on Facebook, it may be easier for them to shop with us via Facebook & Shopify’s secure platform. Very simple process, only pay one P&P fee depending on where you are around the World – and away you go :-). Any questions, please feel free to give us a call or drop us a line on either email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
If you would like a personal Techbed, just choose a fabric colour and let us know what you what you would like embroidered – you can also choose the thread that you would like the embroidery. If we think that another colour may work better, we’ll give you a shout :-). We are more than happy to create personal beanbags, pet beds whether a dog bed or cat bed and of course Techbeds. Just drop us a line, give us a call, do not worry, we are completely open to all ideas :-). Personalised Techbed
http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b07xnmwy/rip-off-britain-series-8-episode-11 One of our customers, Mary, gave us the heads up that she was appearing on BBC’s Rip Off Britain and that she wanted to help our little business. She could not give us any details, but suggested we looked out for some forthcoming “product placement.” Whilst her story is shocking, she had a little twinkle in her eye as she managed to get both the Techbed & the Techbed Mini on the BBC :-). …just whizz through to 7 or so minutes to see how a Techbed can be used and 9 mins 39 secs for the Techbed Mini :-).
The requirements from the Interior Design Company were very specific. Having agreed the concept with the client, you can see Philippa marking out the transparent template that allowed us to marry up the repeat pattern. Clare worked her magic, putting the beanbag all together – and with our new secret filling, the beanbags themselves look absolutely amazing.
