WE'RE ON A MISSION – AND WILL BE LAUNCHING SOON!
At Trend Editions we are ridiculously passionate about bringing you, me; everybody, a new and affordable way to buy beautiful furniture, fabrics and antiques. Working with skilled artisans and sourcing our products directly, we cut out the middlemen, bypass high street overheads and pass on these savings to our customers.
WE ARE TREND EDITIONS
“Working perfectly with our furniture, we will offer a range of beautiful designer fabrics, made with natural fibres that are hand printed or embroidered”
Also on offer will be an extensive array of rugs that start with low cost everyday use items, through to hand knotted, made to order carpets, using the finest wool and silk in both traditional and contemporary designs.
For those who want to add a touch of history to their contemporary living, we will offer a great selection of Indian antique furniture and other old world items, many of which go back 50 to 150 years. These can be enhanced by the many accessories we will have available including lighting and home décor.
As a company, we are already experts in systems to manage design through to delivery to the retail customer. Our software systems help companies like ASOS, Top Shop, Next, Arcadia and many others get good designs into the shops and online; this is our business. Applying the same systems, experience and processes to homeware will set us apart from other online retailers.
WHY CHOOSE US
We are having great success in the funding of our new business venture which will form a part of our already profitable technology business. Like Airbnb we plan to disrupt conventional markets with our new and streamline tech approach. If we are only mildly successful in 5 years, we will be up there amongst others who have the insight into how technology can change markets.
The UK furniture industry is a £20bn market and only 6% of sales take place online; that means 94% of trade takes place in traditional bricks and mortar businesses on the high street. As we all get more and more comfortable buying online, especially with new technology, this is going to change. So far the opportunities to buy furniture online haven't been good enough. It’s largely been done by the traditional retailers who’ve gone online, but they’re still hamstrung by the things that affect traditional retailers — slow design cycles, high costs of holding stock, low technology and high overheads; we aim to change that.
In progress at our development centre is a great new website for release 2nd quarter 2018 and we are aiming to bring in as much new technology as possible – Virtual Reality, Visualisation Techs and A.I. We fully understand that to enable our customers to buy online, the shopping experience must be as good if not better than on the high street, with no surprises when the product is delivered and offering much better value for money. New technology is starting to make this possible and we know that we can deliver.
