Croft gives classic design a contemporary twist

John Lewis reveals our shopping habits The most significant shift of the past 12 months in how we shopped has been the rise of the mobile, according to The John Lewis Retail Report. ‘Mobile traffic overtook desktop traffic for the first time on Christmas Day 2013 and on average over 50% of web traffic now comes from smartphones and tablets,’ says Andy Street, John Lewis md. ‘We have also seen a higher growth in conversion on mobile and tablet this year. The popularity of the John Lewis app has been an important part of this shift to purchasing on mobile devices, with customers who use the app shopping more frequently.’ Average purchase values at John Lewis are highest on Fridays, followed by Saturday, Sunday and Monday. By Tuesday average sales values are less than half of Friday. Street says 2014 saw the first sustained increase in house prices since 2007, with a slow return to confidence in the number of property transactions. This prompted increased demand for home improvements which was seen across all categories in home including big ticket items such as furniture, fitted kitchens and upholstery. Carpet sales, traditionally a barometer of the UK’s housing market, were boosted this year. ‘We have also seen fitted furniture increase, with fitted kitchen sales up 12% and living and dining furniture up 8%. We are currently seeing a huge trend in wallpaper, with our bestrecorded sales for over 20 years,’ he says. Adapting to smaller living spaces has continued to affect shopping habits. Sales of folding furniture increased significantly in the past 12 months, as well as demand for multifunctional products, which offer extra space for storage.

Contour Reflexion offers medium support

Sealy continues its reputation for developing innovative and technologically advanced mattresses and divans with its Profile collection. The two Profile specialist beds are Contour Support and Contour Reflexion. Ergonomic in concept, the Contour mattress is based on various anthropometric studies which detail and profile the proportions of the human anatomy. Directional and variable zoning along its length from head to toe means the mattress doesn’t have to be turned, and pays special attention to offering the right support to shoulders and hips, which are the key pressure points that cause tossing and turning at night. In addition, and the key to the whole concept, there is an area of increased lumbar support to ensure the spine is kept at exactly the right alignment throughout the night. When anyone lies on a Profile bed, they can feel the slightly convex zone which sits laterally across the mattress to support the spine, whether lying on their side or back. According to Sealy, this bed is a boon to those who need more support as they lie in bed, or anyone who occasionally or permanently suffers

from back problems, or wants to prevent one from deteriorating. Sealy says testers who trialled the new beds felt the benefits right from their first night’s sleep on them. Wide comfort options are offered, with Contour Reflexion being a medium support mattress while the Contour Support has a slightly firmer feel. With their high loft, micro-quilted panels, the beds also feature Adaptive technology. The Adaptive textile reacts to temperature and moisture as hydro-

functional polymers change shape, boosting evaporation and helping to maintain a constant temperature for the sleeper, even through the sheets. ‘With this textile technology included in our renowned Smart Fibres which are in the material covering the mattress, and are endorsed by Allergy UK, even the most fussy of sleepers will revel in the comfort and support of this new style of bed,’ says Neil Robinson, Sealy marketing director.
