The Original Sofa Co. (OSC) are looking to help sell the best of North East companies to some of London’s wealthiest shoppers.
The OSC make their products right here in the North East at their Team Valley headquarters, specialising in using traditional methods to manufacture high quality furniture by hand with their signature being the traditional chesterfield sofa. These high end quality products have been great hits, with two new showroom’s opening last year, one just off Sloan Square and the Second in Harrods.
But OSC’s founder David Robinson want’s to help other North East based business who produces high quality work in the region to join them in these prestigious showrooms, with the opportunity to showcase their work alongside the OSC’s range, opening the doors to potential new customers.
David Robinson, founder and managing director of OSC, said: “Both our London spaces have been very successful, and there’s been a huge appetite from both domestic and overseas customers for the high quality, traditionally manufactured products that we create.
We know that there are many other North East firms that design and make products with the same emphasis on quality craftsmanship that we do, and we think there’s a real opportunity to create a showcase which holistically displays a wide range of home furnishings and other products that are made in the region.”
David Robinson continued : “Establishing a presence in London can be especially difficult for companies outside the capital, and our idea will offer other North East firms to do this at a far lower entry cost than they’d otherwise face, with the period for which their products are on show very much up for discussion.
The spaces will be curated to give customers a proper idea of how they might look in their own homes, and David Robinson is excited at the potential there is for OSC and other North East firms to come together in this unique way.
