Local businesses collaborating through the pandemic
An Angus furniture business has continued its partnership with a renowned local housebuilder by styling its latest Dundee showhome.
Millers of Carnoustie was selected by DJ Laing Homes to fit out the showhome at its new Castleview development in Dundee, having previously furnished showhomes at the firm’s Malt Loan development in Carnoustie.
The family-run business, which was established in 1999 and has showrooms in Montrose and Carnoustie, supplied large furnishings such as sofas and beds for the showhome, as well as soft furnishings and floorings with information dotted around the property to give inspiration to potential buyers.
Gary Miller, Managing Director at Millers of Carnoustie, said: “We were thrilled to be asked by the team at DJ Laing to style and furnish their new showhome in Dundee and it is particularly nice to be asked to do this for a fourth time – testament to the quality of our offering.
“We are proud to be able to showcase our range of quality products to a wide range of customers through this partnership with DJ Laing Homes and we hope that many new homeowners will see the benefits of investing in quality furniture rather than low-quality, flat packed products.
“While Covid has been a challenge for the retail sector, we have been lucky to remain busy throughout by taking our store to the customer using our mobile showrooms, and with the housing market also remaining buoyant, we hope that there will be plenty of buyers for the development who will hopefully choose some of our pieces to complement their new property.”
Karen Nicoll, Managing Director of DJ Laing Homes, said: “It was difficult designing our latest Showhome during lockdown but as always, we were grateful for the support and advice from Millers.
Gary and I selected the soft furnishings remotely and pieced all the rooms together to create a modern and welcoming home in the latest trends and colours.
It wasn’t easy securing certain products but we are delighted with the end result of this large four bedroom home. My personal favourite being the spacious master bedroom with dressing area, beautifully decorated in teal.
It’s great being back open/on site and meeting prospective clients in person (by appointment) who are considering moving home”.
The Castleview development comprises of ninety seven contemporary homes in the popular area of Ballumbie on the outskirts of the vibrant city of Dundee.
Ideally situated, these desirable 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes offer numerous features to suit first time buyers and growing families who appreciate the quality/modern aspect and spaciousness of a D J Laing home.
The Weston Showhome is the largest home within the range which benefits from a single integral garage and utility room. It also enjoys a large open plan Kitchen/Dining room plus 3 bathrooms and 4 bedrooms with built in wardrobes.
The opening of the showhome ties in with the release of Phase 3 which is expected to be ready for occupation in late 2021 with some plots eligible for funding from the Government’s Help to Buy Scheme.
The Showhome is now available for viewing (by appointment) every weekend from 11am to 5pm.
Millers of Carnoustie takes time to carefully select products for its two showrooms, so that customers have every opportunity to make their home a place which they can be proud of. The business is built on the foundations of quality, honesty and a personal approach to customer service. Having been in business since 1999, customers who come back time and time again are a testament to this.
