Benji NO

Hello there!

My name is Benji NO, you probably saw me around the website or on my Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/Benji.Obique ) and you’re wonder what’s the deal with me.

Benji NO

Hi, I’m Benji NO

Well, I am the new Sales Manager at Obique. I’ve been with them since I was only a baby, crying and nagging them all day long. Now, I’m an adult and I take my job seriously.

Here at Obique, I’ve learnt that wooden products are the best! We sell hundreds of them and I can say with my paw on my heart that I’ve sniffed all of them and they are great quality items. All the products designed and manufactured for children – from furniture to toys – are made only from natural wood of different essences and finished with water based paints and lacquers in order to be 100% child safe (I know they’re safe, I’ve eaten lots of them when I was younger… )

Besides the wide range of wooden items, we also have shabby chic or vintage style home decorations. I might be only 1 year old, but I still love them, as they bring that extra something to the room. Look, I have a clock from our collection on my wall, at home:

Adding glass products made from recycled glass was my idea and I’m pretty proud of it. As you can imagine, I am a big lover of the outdoors and I like the thought that our products are 100% safe for the environment, as they were all made from recycled glass. If you browse through our products you will see that we have hundreds of them and they are all beautiful and unique in their own way. That’s the thing with the handmade or mouth blown items – they are all different! Even if you take 2 items of the same model and you put them one next to the other, you will notice that they are slightly different – you should trust me on this one, my eyesight is really good!

I have some glass products of my own and I use them to keep my doggy treats as they look fantastic anywhere!

Benji's wish

My wish came true

One day we were working on this new collection of handmade glass items and a strange thing happened. My colleagues told me to close my eyes and make a wish, so I did. Of course I wished for a doggy treat – and guess what? When I opened my eyes, the biscuit was there on the table, ready for me to grab! Amazing!! Tend to believe that these items are magical…

Benji's treats

My treats

We are working on extending our range of products all the time, so you should follow me and my colleagues constantly as we might just surprise you.

Woof woof!

Benji NO

Obique’s Sales Manager, Benji No

Hello, my name is Benji NO! They also call me Benji Down, or Benji Leave It – not sure what my complete name is..

I’ve just been promoted to Sales Manager here at Obique because I am good with people. Check our product categories and if you have any questions do not hesitate to contact us.
Each week my staff put new articles in the blog section about my progress as a manager, so please help me earn my treats by buying our products.
Thank you!

The first job they gave me was that of a Packer. I’ve always known that I can do better so I quickly evolved from that. Oh, that and the thing that they said that I’m not allowed to do is chew on the boxes…

I then moved to Quality Inspector. They had to throw away some products as chewing was not an option…

Back then my days were pretty much the same. Losing and finding my teddy bear was keeping me occupied all day.

Not finding my place in the company, I even considered leaving at one moment. Seems that the veggie crate wasn’t going anywhere so I gave it another chance.

I was dreaming of the Manager position since I was a baby… But it took me a while to earn it.

But now I’ve found my place! Being promoted to Sales Manager made me realize this is my thing! Those late nights and extra hours at the office finally paid off!

Scented candles make ideal gifts for any occasion

Why scented candles make ideal gifts for any occasion

Are you looking for a great inexpensive gift for a friend or family member? Well, look no further. At Obique we have a wide variety of Scented Candles Collection. Scented Candles are one of the best gifts you could give or receive with or without an occasion!

The main reason why people love scented candles is that they are often used to change moods and bring relaxation. Consider giving a highly scented candle to someone who loves taking long bubble baths in the nice worm light of the candles. Gazing at the flame is a fascinating experience and relaxes both the eyes and the mind.

One of the best reasons to give candles as a gift is their aromatherapy effects. Aromatherapy is the practice of using scents and fragrances to create an atmosphere that relaxes the senses. As you study the different benefits of the aromatherapy, connected to particular scents, you will better understand how to choose the fragrance best suited for the person you want to give it to. Keep in mind that you can lean-to the day’s stresses with the healing effects of lavender, crocus and orchid. Special blends of cigarette’s, coffee and chocolates helps you chill out and refocus. You can awaken your senses with the refreshing blend of green tea and citrus.

Candles make the perfect gifts for both men and women, for any given occasion.

Below we’ve added the collections of scented candles in a decorative jar that appeal to both men and women.

The Concept of Multifunctional Furniture by Obique Ltd™

The Concept of Multifunctional Furniture by Obique Ltd™

Obique Multifunctional children’s furniture,  designed for both adults and kids

Nowadays, with the dominant contemporary fast paced lifestyle that is overwhelmed with activity, it is more desirable to live in a smaller house or apartment, than a vast one. Why? Because this reduces the problem of cleaning and managing space, leaving more personal time to the extremely busy individual. This is part of the benefits of Obique multifunctional children’s furniture

Novelty multifunctional furniture is designed to help people better manage interior spaces. The increasing emphasis on a modest design for a house is ascribed to several factors, such as limited land, financial limitation and practicality in housing plan.

Multifunctional furniture enriches efficient use of space, while reducing the cost of furnishing a house. This kind of furniture is generally lightweight and smaller. An example of such furniture is a nest of coffee tables for adults that are easy to convert to a children’s chair, table or a bench, commonly stated to as 3 in 1 furniture.

The Nest of Large Coffee Tables is usually preferred by families with children and also by grandparents who have occasional visits from their grandchildren. Primarily, it is a lot easier to move such furniture to different locations of the house than the classic furniture we are all used to.

Furniture for children should be designed to grow with the child. Tables or chairs should be versatile, elaborate and designed according to the needs of a growing child. A versatile unit radically reduces the cost of having to purchase a separate piece for every functional need of a growing child. For children, designing separate places for sitting, playing or eating certainly obliges a larger room, or better still, more custom-made multipurpose furnishing.

Below you can see the unique designs of the Obique Multifunctional Sets for Children’s & Adult’s version with 3 colour choices:

The white stained multifunctionals are extremely versatile as they can be placed in modern but also more classical homes where they can blend in perfectly.

Decorating your home in a Vintage Shabby Chic Style

Decorating your home in a Vintage Shabby Chic Style

Obique Shabby Chic Home Décor. Shabby Chic is a very comfortable and casual home decoration style that uses pastels and vintage images and distressed look and feel. First appearing in the 1980’s in the United Kingdom and specific to cottage style living, the shabby chic style soon became very popular all types of homes.

Don’t let the word `shabby` fool you. The style might look a bit unstructured and lacking clear rules but it adds a timeless aesthetic and elegance to your home. Furniture pieces that are not genuine antiques are usually selected for their resemblance to older furniture styles in order to get that Shabby Chic appearance.

The Obique Shabby Chic Home Décor style uses a lot of white, neutrals and bright objects with a hint to country style living, delivering a comfortably worn and casual interior look. The main characteristic of shabby chic products is the aged, distressed look with soft flower, animal and other patterns on textiles applied to furniture and home décor products.

Shabby Chic Home Décor

Lots of everyday items could be termed shabby chic based upon the appearance of age with all the signs of wear and tear. Alternatively a modern production item could be distressed to achieve the appearance of an older item and easily adapted to a Shabby Chic look. If the mirror has scratches, scratch it some more and if the paint’s chipped, then you should consider yourself lucky.

So, before visiting your grandmother’s loft to find shabby chic items, check out our Shabby Chic Decorations in our online store and in our listings on Amazon.

Why are wooden toys better for our children?

Why are wooden toys better for our children?

Obique wooden toys are entirely child safe. Nowadays, when it comes to toys, the market is over saturated with plastic products for children. This material became very cheap, making it more affordable for parents to buy toys made out of plastic. As far as we know, plastic is a synthetic material created through a chemical process in order to give it structure, texture and colour. And as chemicals are involved, how safe can our children be? Health is one of the reasons why we should reconsider getting wooden toys for our kids. Let’s see others.Obique Children's Wooden ToysWhy choose wooden toys?
Wooden toys have been around for ages and passed the test of time because they are simple yet versatile. Plain activities such as making cookies at their own toy kitchen, or riding a wooden horse make a child engage more with the object and sparks creativity. How many stories have been created around your wooden horse when you were little? Even if the price is a bit on the expensive side comparing to their plastic counterparts, wooden toys are durable, reusable and nontoxic, being suitable even for toddlers. So that your children can share the same toys and create lasting memories together.

At Obique we believe in creating the highest possible quality of children’s toys from the best materials available on the market. We take great pride in our handmade Obique wooden toys and create solid wood furniture, painted with child safe varnishes for your children’s well-being.
