The article presents the author's views about Hammonds' simple but effective online offering. Presentation is the first thing you notice about manufacturer Hammonds website.

Acting as a virtual salesman, www.hammonds-uk.com invites users to look beyond the roomset and take a closer look at individual components of the fitted bedroom and home office units. While this should be the job of every retailer and manufacturer's website, it is not common for the user to be asked to involve themselves in more than virtually leafing through the website as this one does.
