Grand Designs Live Success!

Friday, 13 May 2011

We have just retuned from a very successful Grand Designs LIVE show. This was our third time at the show and this year was our busiest show yet. Not only did we hand out hundreds of catalogues to interested customers but we spoke to many more about our hardwood, fair trade furniture and accessories.

This was the first time that some of our new furniture pieces, launched in March, have been seen at a show and the response was overwhelmingly positive. Some of the most encouraging reactions were towards our New Hathi Storage Seat which proved to be really eye catching with the eight hand carved elephant panels and natural cotton seat pad. Another really popular piece at the show was the new Thakat 5 Drawer Column, based on our best selling 3 and 4 drawer versions this was a welcome addition to the set. The Hathi Coffee Tables, both large and small, also got a lot of attention along with the Surin Library Table.

Our furniture was also featured in other displays throughout the show including the Iconic Interiors display designed by Naomi Cleaver which featured five of our products and The Qube house which used our Surin Infinity Tables as bedside tables to great effect.

Grand Designs Live gives us a great opportunity to chat to customers, both old and new, about the furniture and what they like and what else they would like to see. We always want to hear customer suggestions and ideas and this is a great way of finding some out.

During the nine days of the show we ran a competition giving away a set of our best selling Contemporary Nest of Tables everyday. This proved to be a very popular competition which everyone wanted to win, including one lady who tried (and failed!) to bribe us with food!

The show will be back in 2012 but if you can’t wait to see us, we will also be exhibiting at the Royal Bath and West Show for the first this year, more details to follow so watch this space!
