  9. Hello,

    I’m writing to you to know if by any chance you would be interested in doing an unbiased review of our site on your blog http://storageeffect.com/

    Here is some information about the site –
    The site brings in the beauty of Asian furniture to countries worldwide for all to enjoy.

    They sell original collection of handmade, affordable solid-wood furniture made by manufacturers in Indonesia.

    Everyone looks to east for more exotic inspiration, top-quality design, craftsmanship and materials, and hand made designs exclusively for themselves. Rather than pigeon-hole into a specific style, the site offers the flexibility to mix and match individual products to beautiful effect. Their tranquil stores are styled to give a sense of how the furniture works in real homes, have a welcoming, one-off feel. Since everyone knows how frustrating it is to wait months for something you’ve fallen in love with, they try their best to deliver within two to three weeks.
