Game, Set, Match - Dibor! Get Inspired by Wimbledon

01 July, 2019


The Wimbledon tennis championship really is the epitome of the Great British summer. Conjuring up images of hot sunshine beaming down on the immaculate green lawn of centre court, white t-shirts and fans celebrating together on Henman Hill, it is an event steeped in history and tradition. This isn’t surprising - the very first championship was held at Wimbledon in 1877! However, you don’t need an expensive ticket to the grounds at SW19 to enjoy all these rich summer traditions. We’re here to share how you can revel in the Wimbledon spirit over the next fortnight.

The first thing that many of us think of when we hear the word Wimbledon is bowls of beautiful British strawberries and cream. There’s nothing better than locally grown, hand-picked strawberries served with lashings of cream. Our Bella Perle dessert bowls are the perfect way for you to serve up your own dishes of fresh fruit, sorbet or scoops of your favourite ice cream. Featuring their iconic beaded edges, they are the perfect match for Wimbledon fortnight. Alternatively, dish up your fruit in our vintage style ice cream bowls.

Wash down your dessert with a glass of refreshing Pimms – the classic drink of the Great British summertime – or your other favourite fruit cocktail. Impress the guests at your alfresco meal or picnic by serving this up in our Soliel glass pitcher jug, which features a large embossed sun design that is perfect for the season and is sure to chase away the clouds. Then, sit back and relax as you sip your drinks from a beautiful highball tumbler. Try our classically elegant Celia glass tall tumblers… just add a paper umbrella for that extra dash of summer spirit.

Hosting your own party on the lawn is the perfect way to replicate the Wimbledon spirit at home. And, best of all, you can do this in a style and comfort that would make those at the Championships envious. Our cream plaid cushion will add a luxurious and welcome comfort to your garden, patio or conservatory chairs, and is perfectly paired with our Highland plaid scatter cushion for the complete classic British country look.

So, raise a glass to all the players at Wimbledon this year as you sit back and enjoy the British summer in style. And no matter who wins in the finals, it’ll be game, set and match to you.

What are you doing to celebrate Wimbledon fortnight? We’d love to hear about your garden parties, picnics and days off relaxing on the lawn. Share your stories with us via Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

Relax into Summer with our Country Style Garden Cushions

26 June, 2019


Now that summer has officially begun, it’s time to get out in the garden and enjoy the warm sunshine and balmy evenings. There’s simply no better season to entertain friends and family at an alfresco dinner party, lounge in the sun with a good book or just snooze in the shade after dinner on a lazy Sunday afternoon. However you plan to spend your time in the garden this summer, we’ve got the cushions and accessories that mean you’ll be doing it in comfort and style.

Our highland red tartan cushions are the perfect way to introduce a traditional country look into your garden this summer season. The apple red and woodland green plaid print of these scatter cushions will complement the colours of your flowering garden, mown lawn and rosebushes when placed on your conservatory or patio chairs, and will allow you to unwind in comfort. They can also be paired with our highland red tartan table runner at your alfresco dinner for a complete dressed table spread that’ll make you the envy of your friends.

Why not mix these red tartan cushions with our highland plaid scatter cushions? A great way to add a touch of comfort to your garden bench or swing seat, these luxurious cushions feature a white, red and green plaid design and can be paired with their own matching table runner for the perfect outdoor dining experience. Or, if you want to add a lighter touch of colour to your patio furniture, look no further than our cream plaid cushions, which feature a grey, cherry red and white tartan design on a pale cream background. The good news is that all these plaid cushions are practical as well as stylish – their covers are machine washable at 30°C.

So, as the warm sun makes you sleepy this summer settle down in your favourite garden chair or on your bench in comfort with our luxurious cushions, a good book, and even a glass of bubbly in one of our botanical etched champagne flutes and let the troubles of the world drift away.

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.
