Furniture 123 Wins Best Online Retailer 2008


Furniture 123 Ltd (, the Leeds based online furniture retailer, is pleased to accept the prestigious Best Online Retailer 2008 prize from the Interiors Monthly Awards.

Interior magazine Interiors Monthly set up its awards with the aim of rewarding excellence within the industry. In the case of the Best Online Retailer award, votes are gathered from manufacturers and suppliers, who have the freedom to vote for any retailer they feel deserves the title, as opposed to a shortlist. Natalie Rawson, Furniture 123 Commercial Director comments, "The nature of the vote meant we were up against every other online retailer in the country (in the interiors sector), so to win this award is a great honour for us. It clearly shows that our website and product range are appealing, but also we have the trust and support of the industry as well as our customers."

Interiors Monthly says of the winning team, "Since its foundation in 1999 – a time when consumers were wary of making online purchases and using dial-up to connect to the Internet – Furniture 123 has established itself as the largest pure online furniture retailer. By removing the need to physically display its furniture, the retailer is able to offer more than 16,000 products – many with next day delivery. While online retailers have come and gone by trying to offer rockbottom prices, Furniture 123 has prospered by combining reliability, choice, service and prices that are lower than bricks and mortar stores, but not so low that it cannot offer the first three elements."
