They say; 

OUR PHILOSOPHY OF JOY It’s often the little things in life that bring the most happiness : an unexpected bunch of flowers, a compliment from an old friend, a beautiful scrap of fabric found at the bottom of a drawer…What makes you happy is as individual to you as your fingerprint. We believe that your home should bring you happiness and you should feel free to create the home that inspires you, motivates you and reflects you. It’s not about fashions or trends, but creating a space in which you can feel pure joy.

They say: 

Style, Quality, and Everlasting: The PIB Concept

PIB was founded because we couldn’t find furniture which combined style & quality online. The products were either of bad quality, badly presented or in the middle of long lists with no coherence of styles.




Currently there are great ‘back to school’ special discounts on various pieces running until 25th September.

home: trend [ plywood ]

Plywood furniture is nothing new, made popular in the 1950s with design icons like Charles and Ray Eames. The material that was once thought too cheap to be on show is now making its biggest mark on interiors being used on everything from furniture to kitchen cupboards to wall coverings.

The amazing nature of plywood means it can bend and create beautiful shapes, and this is particularly evident in pendant lights. If you are looking for a statement light this coming season, make sure its made of plywood.

Light shade from clasohlson.com [ £29.99 ]
Another great way to make a statement is to use plywood where you may not expect. Make cupboard doors in a kitchen or panel a wall in a living room. Let the finish be raw and obvious, no need to cover up with paint.

If you fancy a more subtle approach to plywood try adding in some dining chairs or perhaps a side table or stool. These pieces of furniture can add interest to a room and blend with other trends, like mid-century, monochrome and Scandinavian. You really need to appreciate the design of the pieces you choose, so a less cluttered room is probably best.

If you are looking for inspiration than we recommend a visit to the V&A Museum and their current exhibition Plywood: Material of the Modern World.
