Homer's tweed furniture
Our Homer exclusive tweeds are designed in-house and woven at Glen Lyon tweedmill, just minutes from our door in Aberfeldy, made with 100 % wool from Cheviot sheep in the Scottish Borders. We now have over twelve different tweeds offering a wide range of colour choice and pattern.
The chairs, sofas and footstools in this range are made by a family furniture firm down South. For our Homer furniture, they use an Indonesian hardwood. The finish is left unpolished and natural, The first thing our customers do, is to stroke the arms - they're very tactile!
We keep a large number of pieces in both our stores, to keep up with demand. If we are temporarily out of stock we order in, with an average wait-time of 3 to 4 weeks. Delivery can be arranged anywhere in the UK and we keep costs minimal.
Meet the designer...
Lorna, our young designer, studied textiles at college and has worked with tweed ever since. Now, as part of our Homer team, she brings her creativity and know-how, to help us widen Homer's range of exclusive, Scottish textiles.
The design process, choosing colour ways...
Our fabric being woven on Glen Lyon Tweedmill's faithful old looms!
We have chairs, sofas and footstools upholstered in our exclusive tweeds and you can (sometimes) buy by the metre.
The chairs sell at £495, the sofas at £750. Our local tweed mill weaves two bolts (sixty metres) of each design/colourway. Therefore, each range is a limited run.
