Finally, they're back and not just on our TV screens but in a cinema near you for a feature length special too! Celebrate in style and re-create the shabby Victorian comfort of Baker Street, choosing from our range of traditional furniture including tables, chairs, wingback armchairs or chesterfield seating.

Baywatch banner

With the long anticipated release of the new Baywatch film, we can't wait to see the return of The Hof and Pamela and are predicting that all things Californian and beach themed will be big in 2017. We can transform the dullest of spaces into a Baywatch set with everything from beach backdrops to bamboo drinks bars, palm trees to surfboards, driftwood furniture and laid-back seating options. And if it's entertainment you're after, we have a range of beach themed games from Limbo Poles to beach volleyball.

Superheroes continued! Take your pick of the new Marvel films - whether its the new Guardians of the Galaxy, Thor or Wonderwoman film, there's plenty of inspiration in our range of superhero props.
