Catching up with Nkuku Stockists

In this week’s blog Nkuku Sales Manager, Denise has shared some news from her road trips over the last few months: “We are right in the middle of trade show season and I have literally just returned from Maison et Objet, the most wonderful show and a great opportunity to catch up with some of our international customers.  After a quick turn around we headed straight to London for Top Drawer.

Since joining Nkuku over two years ago, my role in Sales has been to look after all our customers.  I have had the pleasure of meeting them at Trade Shows, talking a lot on the phone and by email but have rarely had the opportunity to visit them in their own premises. This summer, all of that changed and I have travelled around the UK in some the best of weather, to call on some of our amazing customers, see our products in great locations and talk to some of their customers too.

I have learnt a lot, but particularly that our customers share common themes. Each one is committed to their businesses, is amazingly creative and welcoming, love Nkuku, and support local artists and other wonderful companies that sit beautifully alongside the Nkuku brand.  I have had some great feedback on what you love, what you would like from us to help your business and I have taken some fantastic display ideas away with me to share. (Above Closett & Botts create a eclectic effect with baskets filled with spools.)

My travels have taken me to Wells, Brighton, Frome, Oxford, Bath, Chichester, Stroud, Marlborough, Hay on Wye, Lewes, Croyde, Chester, Richmond, Barnes and even London Town to name but a few. (Above a rustic trestle proves the perfect setting for our Mali pottery collection and other Nkuku delights in Elizabeth Lee in Frome.)

As soon as Top Drawer has finished I will be back on the road again (if I haven’t seen you yet I’m on my way!) but please do come and say hello at Top Drawer. We would love to show you our new Autumn Winter 2014 collection and our stunning new exhibition stand. (Above Number 2 in Hay on Wye have created a stunning display on collection boxes and bowls filled with knobs.)
