How to make home furnishings exciting

Workers at a Tewkesbury furniture warehouse are among the reasons why Gloucestershire is a wonderful place.

Employees set up 41 mattresses along a carefully planned route in the warehouse, with a person standing infront of each one.

This was part of an audacious attempt to break the mattress dominoes world record, a phenomenon that apparently began in the US.

The worker at the front of the chain fell backward, triggering the domino effect to knock over the remaining 40.

Guinness World Records is examining a video of proceedings. If you haven't seen it, you absolutely must.

In something of a home furnishings excitement double whammy, I snapped the above sand sofa on London's South Bank last week.

And it seems the action doesn't stop there. 22-year-old Furniture Design student Rosetta Lau has invented the PlusMinus wall, a shower partition system which could become a common feature in the world's hotels.

Right, I'm off to do some ironing and dream of bean bags.
