    I should add the suite i had before was the "Oakley" terrible quality imo.

    The bed itself was ok, but very sharp slats in the headboard and rough as edges, but the bedside and talboy werent good at all, a chunk came off the tallboy the day i got it and the bedside a couple of weeks later and the corners were so so sharp. draws didnt close properly etc...

    This one the "elegance" seems so much better, much more solid and heavy the finishes are of a high standard. Could see the difference in quality instantly. You get what u pay for.

    So yeh dont recommend the oakley at all :/

    I usually like dark too, this is the first pieces of white furniture i have purchased. Thinking of gradually swapping over and painting some lovely dark wood pieces we already have white (a huge project that i may get around to one day!!)

    Just looks so fresh and bright

    Funny you should say that I was looking at all my dark furniture wondering how lovely some of it would look if it was white

    It seems like such an effort to paint them tho....all the prep etc. Anyone wanna come do it for me? I have a gorg jarrah bookcase that some of the stain has started to wear off so id love to do that white.....but then id have to paint or replace my coffee table, tv unit, dining suite....or it will look out of place. Light wood and white looks nice together but....really earthy.
