Business Story

Why this business was started

I have a passion for furniture and interior design, I love designer furniture. Its a growing market online and I have been doing it all my working life, I had a bricks and mortar store and moved to ecommerce.

I love ecommerce also I started selling on Ebay 17 years ago so it just made sense to marry my two passions ecommerce and interior design.

All our products are deliberately chosen to be unbreakable and easy to ship they are designed for mail order. So fulfilment is easy. I have taken all the issues and learning curve out of the business with the mistakes I have made in a 17 year period.

The reason of selling this business

I have 3 young children and a baby on the way so I dont have time to manage the store. I have two other stores in different niches which take up my time also. I have neglected the marketing so it is a great opportunity for someone to capitalise on this even if they want to flip the store or have it as a long term sustainable profitable business. This is a really easy opportunity for someone to leverage.

What's involved in running this business

Dispatching orders, answering customer queries, updating inventory and ordering in from suppliers. The basics of running an ecommerce store and the marketing channels which you want to use to promote the store.

This business was founded: about 3 years ago
Time to run this business: approximately 10 hours per week

Other details about profit: Gross profit margin on designer furniture is around 50%. discounting is frowned upon by high end suppliers and so it is not a price competitive industry with many of the products as the manufacturers will close your account of you don't keep them at RRP. which is great for everyone all around.

    I have been involved in furniture retail for 16 years it is my passion, hobby and business since i left school. Life has changed pretty quickly for me in that I am married with kids aged 5 , 4 and 2 and another on the way in a few months so I have found myself with less time and more commitments. I have two other stores I run in an unrelated niche that i concentrate my efforts on. Their are only so many hours in a day unfortunately. The design niche great and exciting industry to be involved in and one that I owe a great deal to.
