ONLINE FURNITURE EXPERIENCE
Real quick, ask yourself this question: Would you buy furniture from store like the photo below? Be honest.
I’m not saying that these old furniture stores are bad. They’re awesome, it’ just that – they’re outdated.
Little back story here:
We do run an offline furniture store as well. Back in 2015, we started our brick-and-mortar furniture business and almost instantly, we knew that we had to go online, and you need to know that back in 2015 – no one is buying furniture online. As it turned out, we made the best decision ever, our sales online are like 10 times more than offline. So hey, we deserved some respect as one of the first few furniture business that went online in Malaysia!
Anyway let’s get back on track. What’s so special with buying furniture online? What’s the difference?
Well, if you’re reading this blog – you’re taking part of one of the shopping experience.
