New Arte pricingAug 23, 2019

Later this morning we will be sending out an updated pricelist which is effective 1 September. We have new prices for the Arte range. Unfortunately there have been considerable increases from their supply sources making it necessary to increase the pricing. Contact your Unique Account Manager if you don't receive this email and they will forward the new pricelist to you. You can also download it from our website homepage (you need to be logged in).

Please be sure to check prices using this new pricelist or with your Unique Account Manager before quoting. And please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any trouble accessing the new pricelist. Of course outstanding quotes made prior to 1 September will be honoured at the old price.

Garden of Eden


New Chivasso!Jul 31, 2019

We always look forward to Chivasso's annual release. They never fail to thrill us with their stunning designs and styling and Garden Route is no different. It's a tribute to the south west coast of South Africa, a magical area of lush flora, fauna and magnificent geological features. Garden Route reflects these features with striking prints and a huge selection of textured plains. See the collection page HERE. Better still call into your nearest Unique showroom and see the samples.

Love textile-covered walls? It's easy with ZR's CovertexJul 25, 2019

We love the look of a room with fabric-lined walls, it looks so luxurious and importantly feels luxurious with their sound absorbing and insulating qualities.

Zimmer and Rohde offer an easy to install wall-covering system called Covertex. It's quick and clean and doesn’t require any construction work. The rails are flexible allowing for curves and integration with existing features like power sockets etc. There're so many possible uses, e.g. back wall-covering on wardrobes and shelving units, room dividers, in-set headboards and furniture panels. And of course the fabric designs can be swapped as often as you like - fabulous for retail spaces which work different seasonal looks.

You can read and see more about Covertex on their website HERE.
