This award winning London based business specialises in soft furnishings, curtains, blinds, reupholstery, wallpaper, fabrics and fabric walling, tented ceilings, bespoke furniture and accessories.
Founded in 1988 by the vendor, the business is situated in two High Street locations, one in South East London and the other in Wandsworth. Catering mainly for the trade market, there is also an attractive retail showroom situated near the company workshop, which is a firm favourite with the area's discerning and wealthy clientele.
Over the years, the business has built an incredible reputation, is highly regarded by competitors and peers and is considered a part of the fabric of the community. The vendor can offer considerable advice and information concerning all aspects trading in the region and has created interiors for many styles of residence, large and small plus yachts, restaurants and hotels. The highest percentage of work is in the UK, but work has been carried out in Europe, the Far East and Mexico.
The welcoming showroom has a wide range of products on display in extremely attractive settings, giving the customer the best options of choice. The beautiful and unique display of bespoke furniture provides inspiration to anyone thinking of making a change to their own furniture collection. The business also offers an upholstery service to bring new life to dull or worn pieces of furniture. An extensive library of hundreds of fabric books containing every possible imagined fabric is available to suit every need, desire and budget.
Furthermore products include a variety of blinds, over 600 colours choices of paint which can be ordered via email, as well as a stunning range of lamps and lampshades. This business encompasses the entire spectrum of interior design and manufacturing.
The business is an excellent opportunity for any business seeking an opportunity to expand their current services into this region or perhaps an owner manager choosing to take advantage of this established business avoiding time consuming, costly and risky start-up conditions.
|Facilities:||There are two magnificent showrooms and a large 4,500 square foot light industrial workshop and storage unit. The current owner owns the freehold and is open to either sell them to the ingoing party or create new leases.|
|Competition:||The business has used limited advertising in the past and there are excellent opportunities to increase this and to invest further in its Internet presence to market the business more aggressively and to significantly increase turnover. The business has however, featured in magazines such as Vogue, and has published in books including Stephanie Hopens.
A high proportion of the business's revenue has been due to its excellent reputation for quality and service and strong word of mouth recommendation.|
|Training/Support:||The vendor is keen to assist the ingoing owner in any way possible to ensure a smooth transition of ownership and the continued success and growth of the business.|
|Sale Reason:||After more than thirty years in the industry the time has come for the owner to retire.|
