Artisan Furniture brings Granary to life
Online drop-shipping specialist Artisan Furniture, a London-based business that works with factories in India to offer retailers a plethora of on-trend designs at competitive prices, is bringing a new brand to the market – Granary Royale, a handmade classic with an already-strong following. Manager Bruna Martins explains all …
What’s Granary Royale’s background?
This classic handmade range was first introduced in 2008, and is one of our most popular, and oldest. The Granary collection was first offered in acacia wood with a dark finish, and subsequently the second edition was launched in 2012 as Granary Royale, which was in mango wood and had a natural finish.
This 100% solid wood, 20th century-inspired collection offers truly classic pieces of furniture which will last for generations. This collection has been running successfully for a decade, and is now being introduced to the UK marketplace directly by the manufacturer, who employs skilled artisans.
Can you describe the offer in more depth?
This collection is suitable for everything from traditional English homes and cottages, to post-colonial and classic mansions. The products are competitively priced, and cater to the mid-market segment, and offer construction features such as wooden pegs, breadboard joints, grooves, hand distressing and chamfered edges.
The collection includes all the most popular products, such as the butterfly dining table, trilogy coffee table, round drum chest, corner TV unit, nesting stools and long extension dining tables, to name but a few.
As the current trend is for lighter finishes, we are offering Granary Royale with an amazing natural grain pattern (including wooden knots) and handmade, turned legs. We also offer the darker version, popularly known as Granary, in acacia wood.
Granary is a classic, evergreen home furniture design. It never goes out of fashion, which is evident from the fact that both Granary and the extended Granary Royale have been running successfully for 10 years.
Does the flexibility for which Artisan Furniture is known extend to Granary Royale?
Indeed. In line with our policy of empowering retailers, all our products (including Granary Royale) come from the manufacturer, thereby offering retailers a chance of customising the product in terms of finish, dimension, style and design.
Granary Royale will be available from March onwards, for drop-shipping amongst the other products listed on our website. With our dropship service, customers don’t need room or resources to store any products, as we stock everything at our Leicester warehouse, which we then ship directly to their customers’ doorsteps. Additionally, our stockists enjoy free delivery within the UK mainland, and there’s no minimum order for value or volume.
