We’re confident this new campaign will bolster our position as the nation’s leading online bathroom retailer while showcasing our new range of premium bedroom furniture to audiences nationwide.”

Jon Hills, account director at CIC, added: “Through the use of the latest CGI techniques we’ve created an advert which conveys the quality and craftsmanship of the bathroom and bedroom ranges, while removing the need for expensive set build or location filming.”
