Live a life less or­di­nary with Shack­le­tons

Yorkshire Post - YP Magazine - - Advertising Feature -

SHACK­LE­TONS Home & Gar­den is on a mis­sion to help peo­ple live a life less or­di­nary – in­doors and out. And right now, its In­te­ri­ors Sum­mer Sale makes it a great time to buy.

This in­spi­ra­tional store is just over the Lan­cashire bor­der, but the roots of the fam­ily who own and run it are in York­shire. Orig­i­nally from Mir­field, the Shack­le­tons moved to Grindle­ton, a vil­lage once within the York­shire bound­ary.

To­day, the show­room, which is just over 10 min­utes from Skip­ton, is home to many York­shire-crafted prod­ucts, with Royal Oak be­spoke din­ing fur­ni­ture made in Grass­ing­ton, Healthbeds of Rother­ham (the bed brand of choice for the Duke and Duchess of Cam­bridge) and wool fab­rics from Heb­den Bridge.

Cus­tomi­sa­tion is a key theme, and nowhere is this more ev­i­dent than with Shack­le­tons’ ex­clu­sive Cus­tom & Co uphol­stery range, which fea­tures 20 new de­signs for 2015. You can choose from an eclec­tic range of styles and sizes, and from hun­dreds of fab­rics. And via its sim­pleto-use web­site ‘Fab­ric Con­fig­u­ra­tor’, you can view ex­actly how your sofa or chair would look, ei­ther online at home or in store with the help of an in­te­ri­ors ex­pert. What’s more, each piece is made in the tra­di­tional way in the UK - with a hard­wood frame glued, screwed and/ or dow­elled, and comes with a five-year struc­tural guar­an­tee and ac­ci­den­tal dam­age war­ranty.

For first-time buy­ers, the Sim­plic­ity own la­bel range of so­fas and chairs of­fers ex­cep­tional value for money, quick de­liv­ery and a two-year struc­tural guar­an­tee.

The store is home to other fa­mous brands too, in­clud­ing Alexan­der & James, Tetrad Harris Tweed, John Sankey and Hi­molla re­clin­ing so­fas and chairs.

You can even buy the fab­ric Shack­le­tons holds by the me­tre, or have cur­tains, throws and cush­ions made. There’s even a re-uphol­stery ser­vice, so you can re­fresh a much-loved fur­ni­ture, or match a favourite piece with your new pur­chases.

Din­ing room fur­ni­ture is pre­sented in many styles, to suit tra­di­tional and con­tem­po­rary tastes, and is beau­ti­fully crafted by the likes of Wil­lis & Gam­bier and Nep­tune.

And within its 11 ranges of bed­room fur­ni­ture, from the flam­boy­ant to coun­try style, some styles are also avail­able in a va­ri­ety of paint colours. The store is also a stock­ist of Far­row & Ball paints.

“We have a pre­mium of­fer but not at pre­mium prices,” ex­plained David Shack­le­ton, who es­tab­lished the busi­ness 17 years ago with brother Paul, first as a gar­den nurs­ery and then a gar­den cen­tre, earn­ing a strong rep­u­ta­tion with out­door fur­ni­ture be­fore ex­tend­ing the busi­ness and cre­at­ing an in­te­ri­ors depart­ment four years ago. “We can be up to 35 to 40 per cent cheaper than the RRP be­cause of our buy­ing power.”

All of this qual­ity and choice comes with in­cred­i­ble value for money and Price Prom­ise Plus, Shack­le­tons’ guar­an­tee of
