Online Furniture Shop - Discount for EFers!

Hi all!

My boyfriend and I have recently set up an online shop in Switzerland selling solid wood furniture. The website is currently available in English and German.

www.akayu.ch

All of the products are made from 100% solid wood and we offer free delivery to the whole of Switzerland and Leichtenstein plus a 14 day money back guarantee.

As the EF community has been such an incredible source of information for us since moving to Switzerland, we would like to offer you a 5% discount on any order that you place until 31st December 2013 . Just enter the code EF2013 into the promo code box when you checkout.

You can also find us on Facebook and Twitter so please feel free to join us to keep up to date with all the latest news, offers and new products:

https://www.facebook.com/AkayuFurniture

If you have any questions please don´t hesitate to ask.

Thanks in advance for your support and have fun browsing the site

Nice looking stuff and good luck to you. Although some of your products look almost identical to those at Oak Furnitureland, that's always advertising on the telly:

http://www.oakfurnitureland.co.uk

Are you connected to them?

Hi eng_ch
Nope we're not connected to Oak Furniture Land...we buy directly from the factories which produce our furniture.
Thanks

Thanks Akayu! Our new coffee table from you not only looks great, but smells wonderfully like wood. It is certainly a good alternative to the disposable furniture, most people buy.

I also like the fact you check out your resources for wood. (No deforestation here.)


Good luck with your venture.

Re: Online Furniture Shop - Discount for EFers!

Thanks for the positive responses. Its good to know that you like our products!
@Züricher: At this stage we only had limited influence on the design but we do work very closely with the manufacturer and will be more and more involved on the design side.

Cheers, Wisey

Hi Me, Myself & I,

Thanks very much for your message! You should have received a reply to your query today. If it didn't arrive with you please PM me to let me know.


...and if anybody else is interested:

we will be looking into adding smaller dining tables to our range and beds will definitely be added as soon as possible!



Finally - what is the general concensus on beds - which size would you be most interested in buying?

Cheers,

Wisey

Re: Online Furniture Shop - *NEW* Discount for EFers!

Hi all!

We just wanted to say thank you so much for your support so far and for the positive feedback you´ve given us, it is very much appreciated!

We also wanted to let you know that there is currently a January sale at www.akayu.com and we are offering EF members an EXTRA 5% discount on these sale prices until Sunday 12th January 2014. Just enter the code EF2014 into the promo code box when you checkout.

Our offering has slightly changed from when we first started. We still offer many products which are made from 100% solid wood, but we now also offer some beautiful veneer pieces (including beds) and also a range of sofas. We still offer free delivery to the whole of Switzerland and Leichtenstein plus a 14 day money back guarantee.

Don´t forget to keep checking the site as we are constantly expanding our product offering.

The site is also available in German www.akayu.ch

Thanks everyone and we wish you all a very happy and prosporous 2014.

Wisey

Hi there,
Yes unfortunately we are no longer trading, therefore the website is offline.
I hope you manage to find what you are looking for elsewhere!
