Furniture plays a dominant role in retail store where visual merchandising is displayed. The required quality, accuracy to fit site dimension, pre-fabrication time and installation methodology are determined in furniture factory.
We have been working with most of the best furniture factories in China and are strategically collaborated with selected factories for our retail store projects according to the store’s character and project need. This is to provide the most suitable factory for each project in term of cost and quality.
For general retail store, we fabricate furniture by our partnered factory in Shanghai, China. Three dimensional furniture and feature will be fabricated by our Dongguan factory who fabricated freeform corian and GRG for Staurt Weitzman Stores designed by the well-known British architect Zaha Hadid.
