Shopping at Doyle and Furnham Store

Hello May! No blog for a week because we’re still adjusting to our new home. Yes, we finally moved in so we’re still busy unpacking and organizing our stuff. It feels like forever parang hindi natatapos ang paglilipat. Hindi pa namin nalilipat lahat ng gamit but it can wait naman since hindi naman essentials yung mga naiwan sa kabilang bahay like Christmas decor, books, toys and others. 

I miss blogging and sa dami ng gusto kong iblog hindi ko alam kung ano uunahin. I checked my previous posts so I already shared Uratex and Mandaue Foam so this time Doyle and Furnham naman. 

I discovered this store last year and I learned that this company is a hotel supplier. Doyle and Furnham provide stuff like bed sheets, towels, pillows, and others to hotels, resorts, and hospitals. It was the year 2020 when the owner decided to extend their product to consumers so people like us could buy quality bed sheets, towels, bath mats, bath robes, and other stuff that we commonly use if we stay in a hotel. 

You can purchase their products on Doyle and Furnham's website, Shopee, Lazada, Foodpanda, Edamama, and their physical store which is located at Gate 3 Plaza, Taguig. 

I was happy when I learned about this store because whenever we stay in a 5-star hotel or resort, nacucurious talaga ko kung saan ba binibili yung mga bedsheets and pillows. So finally, may mabibilhan na rin.

Sleep is life so I really invest in bed, pillows, and good quality bed sheets. I tried different brands na rin kaso ang hirap maghanap ng white sheets na same sa hotel. Doyle and Furnham sheets are made of hypoallergenic material, high-grade Pakistani Cotton, 300 Thread Count (100% Cotton), and OEKO-TEX certified free of harsh chemicals.

For the past several months, I’ve been reading and hearing good reviews about their products pero hindi pa ko makabili because I know that we are buying a new bed. So after buying a bed from Uratex and a bed frame from Mandaue Foam, it is time to buy bed sheets and pillows.  

Since the price is not cheap, I wanted to visit their store so I could personally see and feel the products. I searched for the operating hours and nakita ko 9AM but we arrived around 10AM, parking is limited so ang tagal namin naghintay bago makapag-park. The store is still closed so I checked their Facebook page and I found out na 11AM pala ang store opening. Yung office pala nila ang 9AM. Toink! 

But the guard told us, try daw namin tawagan kasi kapag alam nila na may customer, binubuksan naman nila ng maaga. So my husband called a few times, nung una wala pa sumasagot, I think on our third try may sumagot na and yun nga nagpunta na sila sa store. It was around 10:30AM pa lang so we were happy na hindi na kami maghihintay pa ng 11AM. 

The store is just small, buti na lang kami lang ang nandoon so hindi masikip and naassist kami ng maayos. I already knew what I wanted so hindi naman mahirap mamili. I purchased the Starter Set + additional Pillow Cases, Duvet Comforter Set + additional Duvet Cover, Goose Down Pillow + Large Pillow Cases, and their new product which is the Summer Bliss Collection. 

The advantage of buying from the store is, makukuha mo agad yung products, also yung ibang wala sa website, pwede mo maorder basta meron materials. Like goose down pillow, nakabili ako sa store pero wala sa website. 

The only products that are available at the store are the Summer Bliss Collections and the rest, hinintay namin magawa and madeliver from their factory which is just a few minutes walk from their store, so mainit-init pa yung bedsheets nung nareceived namin. I love their packaging, hindi plastic so I can reuse it. 

The store also provides complimentary drinks while waiting, they offer coffee, tea or softdrinks. 

I already ordered when the staff informed me na meron sila freebie if we purchased PHP10K above and dahil marami daw ako binili and first buyer din ako sa Summer Bliss Collection, may free tumbler pa ako. I checked their website, ang mahal din pala nung Scented Candle and Room & Linen Spray na freebies sa amin. 

After buying, nagworry ako kasi nalimutan ko na 11 inches nga pala yung bed namin so bitin yung nabili ko sa Doyle and Furnham but I felt relieved nung nilagay ko na siya sa bed namin. Yes, bitin siya pero hindi naman halata and natatakpan din naman ng duvet. So far, hindi umaangat yung bed sheets kahit bitin. 

We have duvet and comforter na rin before pero bumili pa rin ako so I can compare and feeling nasa hotel nga yung duvet infill nila. Iba rin yung fabric and stitches. If I have the budget, I will replace my son’s duvet too. So far, I am satisfied with my purchase.
