With today’s fast paced internet driven lifestyle, so many of us take advantage of a variety of solutions for shopping online. We purchase books, eyewear, clothing, music, technology, even food via the internet. The opportunity to procure quality furniture is fast making a significant impression on consumers.
Even though most would think it necessary to see and touch furniture prior to making the commitment, the e-trade company Bryght.com is looking to change the buyer’s perception through a new and enticing commerce experience….
Many large-scale companies have been offering all types and scale of home furnishings through e-commerce, but the difference with Bryght is that they have avoided all of the offline shopping expenses and have passed them onto their customers.
By eliminating the traditional high-margin obstacles to selling furniture, they are able to push forward and bring a viable product to market. Unlike their competitors on the e-commerce market, such as Restoration Hardware, Bryght passes on the savings brought about by the elimination of middlemen and brick and mortar costs, boasting that they are able to save their customer up to 70%. Now that is a definite consideration when you, the designer, are put in a situation where stretching budget dollars is required.
The firm is based in Vancouver, Canada and is revolutionizing the furniture industry with a new business model. They curate high-end products from internationally renowned designers, and combines orders into large production runs. When a run is completed, they transport the products from the factory to the consumer’s door. With a risk-free, 30 day return policy and free limited shipping, there is a lot to entice potential buyers.
Bryght.com was founded and funded by a team of highly successful entrepreneurs. There is no other brand in North America empowering consumers and designers in the same way. In less than a year of being in business operating in its present model, this company has shown a significant profit and it’s forecasts for next year are, in short order, quite impressive.
Take a look at some of the newest pieces of upholstery designed by Lars Wendelbo, who heads up the design team. The new collection is now available on their website. Take a glance at my preview (but I recommended viewing each in-depth for all the options and features.)
DOMINO: A modular collection brings forth elements of modern urban design with added flexibility to maximize seating. A low profile design with a deep seat, tactile woven fabrics and ample cushioning make for a comfortable yet firm seat that will resonate well with modern interiors.
