You are interested in a product, but, before buying at Scandinavia Design, you want to be reassured by looking at their consumer reviews? Are they serious? honest? Reactive? Concerned about customer satisfaction? Will someone answer the phone or my email in case of a problem later on?
Or, on the contrary, is their cute logo in fact only hiding a bunch of profit-hungry, cynical, incompetent, misanthropic cheaters?
Your questions are logical, since, if you type “Scandinavian Design consumer reviews”, what do you find?
Not much to be honest: a few grinchy complaints, a bunch of happy customers.
Yet, if you do the same for a competitor site, hundreds, if not thousands, of generally wonderfully glowing reviews suddenly appear.
How come? Is Scandinavia Design too recent? No, the company exists since 2007.
Would they have too few customers? No, it is successful and delivers thousands of products every year.
So why then?
The reason, you guessed it, is simple: we refuse to pay rating organizations, professional reviews and e-reputation agencies. We refuse to pay to receive glorious comments and to have the right to remove reviews, even unfair ones.
We rely on our customers' intelligence, as we rely on the intelligence of our products.
Good design for good people – and fuck the marketing.
Thank you for your attention,
Scandinavia Design Team
Design for Generations
What is expensive?
What is cheap?
The cheap chair you throw away after a few years?
The well-crafted one that lasts 50 years?
The fabric that fluffs up?
The one that doesn't wear out?
Are our products expensive?
Their quality/price ratio is excellent.
What about their impact on the environment?
We let you guess.
The end of year celebrations are approaching and, as tradition dictates, it's time to make your life easier by offering you commercial offers.
They are of three orders:
1) offers on products that we have in stock, new, in limited quantities and ready to ship
2) campaigns, organized with brands
3) targeted promotional codes, which you will get by sending us an mail
(just put "promotional code" in the subject of the email).
Our range of products is extremely wide and experience has shown us many times that no one ever goes around it, even our most loyal customers.
Now is the perfect time to explore it further: do you know, for example, the sections
« fashion accessories », « design objects », « tableware » or « candles & candleholders »
which are literally full of magnificent gift ideas?
Offering design at the right price is an integral part of our work. If you find the same item at a lower price at another retailer, delivery included, we will not only match it, but even offer you a better price.
How to take advantage of it?
We compare our prices every day with all authorized retailers in Europe. If nevertheless you find cheaper, contact us for a counter-proposal.
We must be able to verify that the item is authentic, new, perfectly identical (size, materials, color, etc.)
and that it is not part of a campaign or temporary destocking.
The valid basis is, for example, a current quote or a direct link to another retailer's website where the lower price is indicated. An email image is invalid, the original email must be forwarded.
The offer does not apply to orders already placed and cannot be combined with any of our other offers or promotions.
Searching the "Search" field and you cannot find it? It's normal.
Our site is not built like a classic e-shop, with its standard product sheets and keywords
like ‘yellow’, ‘lamp’, ‘Marimekko’, ‘wishbone chair’.
This usual method has its advantages, of course, but it obliges you to present the mug,
the sofa, the dress, the toothbrush and the floor lamp in the same way – which is absurd.
Worse: it condemns the searcher to browse through monotonous
products lists, poorly organised – which is boring.
The structure of our site is much more simple: are you looking for a chair?
Go to Furniture > Chairs: a page shows them all classified by brands.
Are you interested in Arne Jacobsen's « Series 7 Veneer » chair?
No need to scroll laboriously from page to page to see the many variants:
they are all gathered in the same place, where you can compare them at a glance.
Forget the Search field: you are on an editorialized site.
