In London we have a team of 5 sales people plus sales administrator allowing us to offer a high level of customer service. This give customers and brand partner one central point of contact. In addition we run a team of 14 sub-agents across the UK and Ireland to give national and local cover.

We believe its important as a showroom to offer the fundamentals to our current and prospective stockist. One key area of focus when selecting our brands is margin and we try to achieve an above average mark up where possible whilst maintaining sensible RRP’s.
