We will be celebrating our 9th Anniversary with a bang by relocating to a bigger, more prominent premise at The Adelphi – to serve you better. We have sourced long and hard for this space and we are very happy to tell you that we’ve found it.
Right now, we are finalising the showroom design and renovation is slated to begin sometime in July. We have received positive feedback from friends/customers who have seen the detail design and we are no less anxious to present our new look to you. Watch this space!
