Last month, Barker and Stonehouse celebrated our 70th birthday with another amazing giveaway. This time, we gave you the chance to win our beautiful Ingrid sofa and two matching armchairs in your choice of fabrics.
Our lucky winner will be able to sit back and relax on this charming sofa, which has been handcrafted in the UK. Both the sofa and the complementary chairs feature a modern-classic style with hand buttoned detail and antique studding for an opulent look. Perfect for any home.
We had thousands of fantastic entries to our competition, so thank you to everyone that entered. We can now reveal that the winner of our Ingrid sofa and chairs, chosen at random, was Dale Askew from Guilford. Congratulations Dale!
We asked everyone who entered our competition to tell us who they’d most like to sit next to on the Ingrid sofa, and Dale answered:
The Queen. Having visited 128 countries in the world she has seen more of the world than most. I would love to share a Gin and Tonic with her!
We loved Dale’s entry. Not only has he done his homework to find out exactly how many countries the Queen has visited, but his answer couldn’t be more timely; the Queen celebrated her official 90th birthday this month, and after 90 years travelling around the world, we’re sure she would love a gin and tonic on our comfy Ingrid sofa.
Dale’s wasn’t the only great answer to our question though. Here are just a few of our other favourite entries:
I would like to sit beside Leonardo da Vinci. Ask him about design and colour get ideas for decor! My all time hero! – Carly from Gateshead
Mary Berry because I adore her and love watching her on tv. We would chat about recipes we both enjoy making and I could make some delicious cakes for her to try. – Kelly from Swindon
Sir Winston Churchill. British, steadfast and strong, a bit like your sofas! – Sarah-Jane from Frinton on Sea
David Attenborough. He can live narrate his programme while I sit, watch and listen. – Penny from Harrogate
For those that missed out this month, don’t worry. There’s another chance to win a stylish piece of furniture in June’s competition. We’re continuing to celebrate our 70th anniversary by giving away the gorgeous Myers Oval Cuddler Chair this month.
If you like the retro look, you’ll love the Myers armchair. Made in Great Britain, it has a distinctive rounded silhouette, a buttoned back and angled wooden legs as well as a foam filled seat and fibre back cushion for comfort. The sunny shade of orange upholstery and retro patterned scatter cushions will brighten up any room in your home.

The closing date for this competition is June 30th 2016 and the winner will be chosen at random. Follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook for updates on our competitions and more.
