Funky Furnishings
Those lovely folks at Journey East have spared some retail space for eclectic furnishings company District Eight Design. Swoon over a signature foosball table made from reclaimed hardwood and cast iron, bedroom furniture from reclaimed loom components, and a glass dining table supported by solid cast-iron press legs. Drawing inspiration from the industrial age and the French Colonial period, District Eight showcases both vintage and modern industrial pieces.

uInfinity OSIM Massage Chair: Our Verdict
“My first time in this massage chair was like riding a bucking rodeo bull. Every limb, joint and muscle was stimulated and given a thorough workout – though that may be because my colleagues messed with the settings. Once I had the nifty touch screen controller to myself, I found pre-set programs to suit my tall frame and adjusted the strength to my liking. The chair kneads, taps, rolls and gives a massage that gets deep into every part of the body; the calf massage was probably my favourite. Over the course of a few weeks I tried out the different programs and options, suitable for after you’ve been running, playing golf or overdoing the yoga. But I didn’t manage to get any reading done – the book was tossed aside in favour of 15 minutes of shuteye.’
