When we first started Milan Direct, people said we were crazy, that people would never buy furniture online, that furniture was something people needed to see and test.
Melbourne, Victoria (PRWEB) June 03, 2011
Online shopping retailer Milan Direct has been recognised for the second year running as one of Australia’s fastest growing start up companies. The recently announced BRW 2011 Fast Starters list saw the online furniture retailer come in at number 26, up 13 places from last year.
To qualify for the prestigious awards, entrepreneurs and start-up businesses must be a young Australian company servicing more than one customer, with a total revenue of more than $500,000.
Australia’s online shopping craze saw Milan Direct meet these requirements comfortably. After enjoying year on year growth of 61.66%, Milan Direct Managing Director Dean Ramler is certain the company can expect continued success riding the waves of what many tip will be the main shopping mode of the future.
“When we first started Milan Direct, people said we were crazy, that people would never buy furniture online, that furniture was something people needed to see and test. But they were wrong. When you’re offering quality products with a full money back guarantee people are more than happy to shop online.”
Mr Ramler said that many people rightly see online shopping as a safer option. “Being online essentially gives every one of our customers a means of broadcasting to our whole customer base exactly what they think of us. We can’t afford for someone to jump online and give us a bad review so we must make sure every aspect of our service offering meets our customers expectations, each and every time.”
And superior customer service matched with quality products appears to be a business philosophy that is working.
“Our aim is to make designer style furniture more affordable for Australians. Whether you’re interested in floor rugs, office chairs, beds or lamps, there’s a Milan Direct designer piece to match countless contemporary decors. Premium furniture, premium living – that’s our motto. And we’re not happy unless our customers are,” said Mr Ramler.
In the last 12 months the company has focused heavily on expanding its product range to include shelving units, shug rugs, floor lamps, shaggy rugs, beds and much more.
All products in the Milan Direct range are premium-end reproductions of modern-retro classics. The ever-growing product range is selected with functionality, style and comfort in mind.
