Scandinavian Furniture Retailers - Where are they going?

Add to Technorati Favorites

It seems that as time goes by more and more Scandinavian / Danish Modern Furniture retailers are disappearing from local reach. What is going on? Is the minimalistic, classic design of the Mid Century going out of style - honestly? Not necessarily and please don't panic!

In recent years we have seen retail businesses such as furniture retailers close their doors to the public for a number of reasons. One of the most recent reasons for this is the decaying value of the dollar against other currencies. In addition, the increase in fuel cost has sparked a dramatic increase across the manufacturing sector to the finished product spectrum; resulting in astronomical product cost. Many merchants are no longer able to support the overhead costs of a retail business model leaving them with no other option than to shut down. What does this mean to you as a consumer? It means your shopping sources have changed, both in location and purchasing methods. Since it may no longer be an option to walk into a local furniture store to browse floor samples, you now have the option to browse through a greater selection of products online. In many cases, pricing and selection may be far more than what a retail location may have to offer. You have the flexibility to shop many e-tailers to compare pricing, all from the comfort of your home. So sit back, relax and enjoy your Shop Online experience.

Take advantage of the handful of retailers much like ourselves who have gone after the internet making it possible for this type of product to exist not only at the national level but at a global level. We at Danish Design in Mission Viejo, California have brought years of experience in global importing and exporting as well as product knowledge together to provide our customers with an ample variety of product selection and customer satisfaction based service.
