UBER Interiors relaunch offer

We are so excited with our site relaunch we’re giving the first 100 orders a 5% off basket total (pre-shipping where applicable). Just use the Code: UBER*N3W at Checkout.

So, the all new UBER Interiors website! It’s a proud and exciting step forward for the UBER Interiors team this year as we embrace and invest in clever new technical advances to bring you what we believe is the ultimate furniture shopping experience. Never one to rest on our laurels, after 4 years we felt it was time for a radical change, well in technology terms that’s a serious amount of time. So a complete and radical redesign from ground up has allowed us to take things in an dynamic new direction. A new year. A fresh new start.

 

We have totally restructured and lifted the lid on our old website (don’t worry there’s everything you had before, just better) in order to provide our customers with a much improved browsing and purchasing experience.

 

Having listened to the needs of our customers (and suppliers) we have produced an efficient and clear, yet up-to-date layout for all to enjoy. The new design now uses a much clearer navigation and makes use of bigger product images with a simpler layout. We have super-fast responses at every page request and now even Non UK Purchasers can collate their orders online and get a shipping quote back with ease.

 

We have aimed to make it easier for you to find our website in search engines (hey thats worked then!) and in turn to find your perfect product.

 

You have no reason to be daunted by the 6000+ hand picked products to buy on our website.  We have new broader and deeper search facilities enabling you to filter your results through Brand, Category or Collections whatever suites you with ease and speed. Or create your own wish list. Or perhaps compare the products and prices across the site quickly and efficiently.

We tried to make it easier for you to realise that help is always close at hand should you need. A simple, phone call, email, enquiry form or Live Chat away.

But we’ve kept all the good bits from the old site don’t worry… and as before, even our Public users can benefit from the trade-style 50% deposit feature on all purchases not in stock.
And we’re not stopping there, we’ve a full list of great new additions to look out for in the coming months so watch out for updates!

So with a full list of relevant new features to make your buying and browsing experience more rewarding in the months to come, the team at UBER Interiors would like to thank you very much for dropping by…. now go and explore!

Large Round Glass Tables

Here at UBER Interiors, part of our service is guiding you in product selection, so you get just the right piece to suit your space. We’re asked on a regular basis to suggest options for large round glass dining tables so here are a few of our favorites.

Most glass dining tables are around the 120cm diameter mark and it can be tricky searching through our 7000+ products to find the larger versions. However many are available at different sizes so simple ask if it’s not shown in the size you want and we’ll quickly find out.

A great starting point is Antonello Italia. Their modern, quality pieces are also at a great price point. The clear glass versions are created using ‘Extralight’ tempered 12mm glass.

Porta Romana Photon sputnik

Porta Romana – Photon Collection

Porta Romana the exquisite British lighting and furniture brand proclaimed as “destined for the world’s most beautiful interiors”, have recently launched a new collection – Photon, full of quirky, space-inspired designs.

Constantly in motion; in collision and flow. A mass of energy looping and tracing its path around the universe. Photon, the quantum of light. Science makes patterns of these apparently random movements. Waves, particles, curves and spheres. Elements combined to create the Photon collection of lighting and furniture.

 

Porta Romana Sputnik Chandelier

Sputnik Chandelier: The first man-made object ever to leave the earth’s atmosphere was the Russian Sputnik in 1957. It orbited the earth and operated as the world’s first satellite. The Sputnik Chandelier in the form of a Graphic doodle is full of movement and energy. Finished with seven irregular sized and shaped bronze and brass lampshades, the Sputnik has the Gareth Devonald Smith hallmark – whimsicality and originality.

Spin Floor Lamp

Spin Floor Lamp: The Spin Floor Lamp is a whirling dervish column floor lamp with a highly sculptural character. Made in cast composite and reminiscent of spinning Planetary Rings, it is textured with a crumbling and subtly broken surface and finished in Plaster White or Bronzed.

Porta Romana Rhomboid Console Table

The Rhomboid Console Table was designed for Porta Romana by Gareth Devonald Smith. It is a dramatic sculptural piece constructed from forged steel and decorated in Verdigris, Gold and Copper finishes. The top is a classic Black Lacquer.

Porta Romana Gabo Chandelier

Gabo Chandelier: A Gyroscopic ceiling light made from four interdependent and free-moving Perspex drops, cut, chamfered and shaped to create a dynamic centrepiece. Softly lit from a tubular opaque cylinder, the irregular facets of the Perspex, all cut and polished by hand, reflect and dazzle the light. Finished with nickel components.

Porta Romana Riviera Mirror

The Riviera is a classic, timeless Porta Romana piece and looks magnificent hung as a pair. Available in two sizes.

Porta Romana Bianca Hanging Light

The pared down form of the Bianca Chandelier, made simply from two interlocking shapes, is all about the detail of its subtly formed profile, it’s gently textured surface and the contrast of the gold and bronze finishes, or plaster white as shown. The sculptural form houses a halogen light source that accentuates all of these features.

Porta Romana Luca Chandelier

An impressive and spectacular construction of hundreds of individually hand textured, patinated and carefully assembled Brass platelets, the Luca Chandelier is an international space station of luxury. Divided into hundreds of segments, light sparkles off different planes creating a golden glow with wonderful shadows. Each Luca Chandelier will be hand made to order.

Porta Romana Metropolis Lamp

A Monolithic and brutalist table lamp, finished in either Bronzed or Antique White. It has an architectural character reminiscent of a city landscape and a tremendous weight, size and presence. Metropolis is cast in composite material from an original modelled by the artist and designer Gareth Devonald Smith.

Porta Romana Paisley Lamp

Combining the crisp and sharp qualities of cut Perspex with the more familiar and decorative motif of paisley patterns. Bringing new techniques to an established and modern material softens the harsher character of Perspex. Layered on a clear base and allowed to twirl freely, something so pretty should be allowed to dance.

 

Porta Romana Elephant Table Lamp

Elephant Table Lamp: There has to be at least one Animal inspired piece in every collection. With no connection to Photon, the Elephant lamp is an unapologetic tribute to the traditions, culture and character of the Indian way of life. This little fellow is based on an Udaipur stone original and is hand painted.

 

Porta Romana Salvatore Oval Coffee Table

Salvatore Oval Coffee Table: Originally designed for Pierre Yves Rochon’s Beau Rivage Hotel in Lausanne, this very special piece has a more substantial frame enabling the use of clear as well as coloured glass for the top. Beautifully proportioned and made to a very high standard.

 

Porta Romana Leaf Wall Light

Leaf Wall Light: Possibly the most spectacular wall light that Porta Romana have ever designed, the Leaf wall light measures nearly 140cm tall and is impossible to ignore! It is a signature piece hand made with individually cut and shaped metal leaves that produce wonderful shadows and patterns when lit from G9 Halogen lamps.

 

Porta Romana Refraction Table Lamp

Refraction Table Lamp: A mystic sphere of solid glass crowned by a collar of finely spun texture and set on a base of the same material. Catching the light and transposing it into something other worldly, the small scale of the Refraction lamp only makes it more powerful. This is a virtuoso piece by Porta Romana’s talented glass blowers. The spun accessories are available in Silver or Gold.
