Dibor’s Tour of French Style

16 July, 2019


The world’s best road cyclists are once again competing in the Tour de France. This bike race takes place over 3 gruelling weeks each summer, and this year it covers a total of 3,480 km, which is 2,162 miles! The riders will be taking in the whole of the French countryside, from the flat cobblestoned north to the mountains of the Pyrenees and Alps, before eventually racing up the Champs-Élysées for the final sprint.

Here at Dibor we have taken our very own tour of French styles, from rustic farmhouse country style to Parisian chic. So, no matter what your personal style, we’ve got the home accessories to suit.

The kitchen is the heart of the French country farmhouse, and we've got everything you need to add some rustic chic to your own kitchen. Our luxury hanging saucepan rack allows you to store all of your lovely pots and pans in a traditional French style from its six hanging hooks. This display rack even features a French cockerel design. For the home cook, our vintage style iron cookbook stand is perfect for displaying your recipes and cookbooks as you prepare your favourite meals. Complete the French farmhouse look with our heart shaped dish drainer.

As for French city living... When you think of Paris you’ll probably think of its cafes and bistros. You can bring the look and feel of these stylish establishments into your kitchen or dining room with our bistro wall sign and our range of Bistrot de Paris barware accessories, including our etched glass wine decanter carafe and our black metal drinks bucket. Alternatively, recreate the feel of watching the Tour de France peloton racing down the Rue de Rivoli at home by raising a celebratory champagne toast in our elegant gold leaf champagne flutes, whose long stems and leaf design evoke images of classic French glamour.

Of course, riding a bike needn’t be strenuous and you don't have to ride for thousands of miles. There’s no better reason to go out on a ride than to enjoy a picnic with a friend in the summer sunshine. Our bicycle picnic basket makes this easy. Simply affixed to your bike, this picnic hamper holds plates and cutlery for 2 and has plenty of room for food and drink, ensuring that when you do stop you’ll be able to enjoy the perfect alfresco meal.

Perhaps, though, you prefer to enjoy watching cycling from the comfort of your armchair. No matter, we’re sure you’ll agree with the sentiments on our decorative metal wall sign, ‘Life is Short. Enjoy the Ride’, and on our vintage style wooden sign, 'Life is like Riding a Bicycle'.

Storage Ideas to Keep your Hallway Clutter Free

12 June, 2019


Hallways in family homes are always full of hustle and bustle. Part entrance way and part storage space, they’re full of school bags, coats, umbrellas, shoes and keys, all of which need to be remembered at the last minute as everyone rushes out of the front door in the morning.

Here at Dibor we’ve got a wide range of hallway accessories that will help solve this flurry of confusion. With our stylish umbrella stands  you’ll never lose your brolly at home again. Simply grab it from the holder as you leave and pop it back in when you return home. Our brushed silver umbrella stand makes a fantastic modern addition to any hallway, porch or entry way. Coming in the shape of an upturned umbrella, this stand is completed by a tall hook handle and decorative footed base, and is large enough for several brollies or walking sticks. Alternatively, our cream umbrella stand offers a shabby chic look that will suit any country style interior.

The scrolled metal coat stand is a more traditional solution, and will look great in any hall. With hooks for several coats, jackets and bags, this stand also features space for your umbrellas or walking sticks, meaning you’ll be able to keep everything together in one place.

Hang your jackets and bags - and even your keys – from one of our range of wall hooks to keep your hallway clutter free. The polished nickel traditional hook board has three hooks to keep all of your items out of the way, whilst our simple country cream iron coat hook is the perfect place to keep you favourite jacket.

These items will ensure that you keep your hallway free from clutter.
