Massacre on the High Street.

feature 3

One of the saddest days in the History of British Retailing has seen Famous Household Names and Brands announce they are in big trouble;

Carpetright stores may have to close with thousands of jobs at risk.

B&Q reveal a massive drop in sales.

And Claire’s Accessories files for bankruptcy.

Mothercare is set for cash crisis talks.

Fashion chain New Look posted a pre-tax loss of £123.5million in the three quarters to December.

And Toys R Us said that it was going to close all 100 of its UK stores after administrators failed to find a buyer, resulting in the loss of 3,000 jobs.

Meanwhile, a profit warning emerged from Moss Bros that sent its shares crashing on the open of stock market trading.

The question is when will it all stop?

And who or what is to blame?

There is little point in blaming the rise in online retailers.

Come on, let’s all be honest here with this old excuse.

The internet has been running for 20 years plus, and online selling did not acquire all its power overnight

These disasters in the High Street have been coming for a long time.

And online retailers are not immune from closures simply because they have a website and operate from a low cost operating base.

Bricks and Mortar Businesses have been struggling for a long while.

Astronomical Rates, Rents and the never-ending bureaucracy from one new Town Hall directive to another.

Staff Pensions, HR Rulings, Compliance, and the upsurge in non-productive staff all contribute to costs that have the habit of running away with the solvency of a Company.

Consumers of a certain age.

Consumers of a certain age have grown up with the likes of Mothercare and B &Q.

They are embedded in our DNA, and life in the High Street will never be the same.

The Household Brands are the tip of the slippery iceberg.

Below are thousands of small and medium-sized businesses fighting for survival.

Exorbitant rent and rates.

Every day they are fighting to pay exorbitant rent and rates and fighting to comply with the latest Government Initiative, which invariably is not worth the paper it is written on.

Where do all the small business owners go after they are forced to close?

Who knows, but they are being squeezed from our Society.

Retro Europe have Launched their ‘Own- Label’ Le Bauhaus Furniture Collection.

Reinvented, Affordable and a Great Design.

The Le Bauhaus Furniture Collection from Retro Europe is it a Modernist Design, or is it a Minimalism Design, or could it be an Industrial Vintage Design?

With All New Furniture Designs…..we all see different styles.

The Le Bauhaus from Retro Europe is exclusively for sale from and is their latest Own- Label designer furniture range.

Retro Europe are Europe’s leading Online Modern Furniture Store and are designers and manufactures of traditionally handcrafted furniture.

Le Corbusier was one of the greatest designers of modern designer furniture, and produced many iconic modernist designer pieces, and Le Bauhaus is clearly influenced by the design style of Le Corbusier.

Some find the concept of mixing designer styles exciting.

The buyers of the Le Bauhaus Armchairs, Sofas, and Corner Sofas have been quick to report their absolute delight with the Le Bauhaus.

Postings on Social Media sites and customer satisfaction sites consistently agree that this a product that combines functionality, quality, and outstanding design with an affordable price tag.

”Retro Europe have clearly ‘reinvented the wheel’ with their very clever design.” is being repeated by followers on Social Media sites.

In my mind, the design is a blend of modernist and industrial vintage.

Le Bauhaus by Retro Europe is traditionally handcrafted with a solid hardwood frame, covered in high-quality multi-density cushioning, covered with a choice of genuine leather or soft Danish Cotton.

The body is then enclosed in a steel framework with wrap under legs giving this model an Industrial Vintage feel.

Or, it could be a Classic Designer Minimal Style from the Florence Knoll School of Design?

Clean, cool, and a cube styling lends the Le Bauhaus to be included in the iconic early to mid-century minimalism period of design where total function meets total minimalism.

Whilst the steel frame gives it the industrial style of Le Corbusier, the minimalism is an influence from Florence Knoll.
