The Big Question: what’s top of the products?

This month we’re asking retailers, what product would you say is in high demand at present?

We have seen an increasing demand for energy saving related products with people switching to LED lamps and lights. We have also seen an increase in thermally efficient blinds and curtains. The reason is that people are trying to reduce their energy costs in view of the massive cost increases people are experiencing.

We’re currently seeing customer demand for hybrid mattresses; that combination of supportive springs and breathable memory foam. This type of product sells consistently, and receives high review ratings to bolster that demand. Rolled mattresses remain a popular option for ease of delivery which appeals to consumers. Our best seller in this category, and ticking all those boxes, is a Luna Memory 1000 Pocket Mattress.

Scandinavian design has been a popular trend in the furniture industry for quite some time now, and Conform, a furniture brand from Sweden, has been at the forefront of this movement with their innovative and stylish designs. Their latest offering, the Globe chair, is set to take the furnishings world (and Barretts!) by storm. These chairs are the epitome of Scandinavian design, characterized by minimalism, functionality, and simplicity. One of the unique features of Conform’s Scandi design chairs is their ability to adapt to the user’s body, providing ergonomic support and comfort. The chairs have adjustable height, tilt, and recline options, making them customizable to the user’s preference. Additionally, Conform places great importance on sustainability, ensuring that their chairs are made with eco-friendly materials and processes. Overall, the Scandi design chairs from Conform are a must-have for anyone looking for a stylish, comfortable, and sustainable seating option. They are ever so popular here at Barretts.

The move to sustainable furniture is a big (and hugely important) focus. The industry isn’t there yet but lots of effort is being put into working through fundamentally sustainable furniture rather than greenwashing.

The mattresses of the moment must be the Sleepeezee Latex range. Latex mattresses have become increasingly popular in recent years due to their numerous benefits. One of the main advantages of a latex mattress is its exceptional durability and longevity. Unlike traditional mattresses, which tend to wear out quickly and lose their shape over time, latex mattresses are made from a highly durable material that can last for many years. They provide excellent support and comfort, conforming to the shape of your body, while also being hypoallergenic, making them an excellent choice for people with allergies or sensitivities to dust, mould, or other common allergens. Finally, they are environmentally friendly, as they are made from natural materials and are also biodegradable, which means they won’t contribute to landfill waste when it’s time to replace them. From all the benefits above it’s not hard to see why the Sleepeezee Latex range is doing so well for us and something we predict will gain even more popularity as we move through 2023.

The Hypnos Pillow Top Aurora + Premium Divan Bed is currently enjoying immense popularity, largely due to its association with the Premier Inn hotel chain. Thousands of guests have experienced the comfort and support offered by this luxurious mattress during their stays. Through the exposure demand for the Hypnos Mattress has skyrocketed, with many seeking to recreate the restful night’s sleep provided by the Premier Inn experience in their own homes. Since 2022 Silentnight has been the official bed supplier of Premier Inn, so we wait with interest to see how interest in this Hypnos model will evolve in the future.
