Building the Nick Scali Brand
With a keen eye for quality and an innate understanding of styles and what customers want, imports have always been a major factor in the success of Nick Scali Furniture.
Flip the calendar back several decades to 1962 when Nick Scali sold his business ventures in Melbourne and moved to the Sydney area where he opened his first furniture location. Ten years earlier he had arrived in Australia from Italy and his ties to the Italian community in his new country were strong. Meeting the needs of his fellow Italian immigrants helped his first furniture store in Sydney’s Ashfield suburb get off to a strong start. He met their needs and satisfied their tastes in furniture by importing quality products straight from Italy. But he didn’t stop there.
Developing Popular Appeal
Recognising the need to broaden the appeal of his brand, Nick Scali started to import a greater variety of furniture styles with the goal of appealing to more of the general Australian furniture buying public. The strategy paid off and the number of Nick Scali Furniture locations began to increase. Today, with stores serving much of the country, and the Nick Scali brand continuing to grow, virtually everyone looking for high quality mainstream furniture will find their needs met when they walk into one of the showrooms.
And, just as the number of customers loyal to the Nick Scali brand has increased dramatically since his early days at his first store in Ashfield, the amount of furniture imported each year has sky-rocketed as well. In fact, today the company imports more than three thousand containers of top quality furniture, including dining tables, chairs, lounges, entertainment units and coffee tables.
Importing Modern Designs
Another connection to the company’s first days is the importation of European designs. Back in the early years, most of the European import furniture was in the Baroque style that was popular with the Italian immigrants and others who had recently moved to Australia from Europe. Today shoppers will find an impressive array of European designs that satisfy a wide range of decorating needs.
Visitors to any of the showrooms can explore an excellent collection of the best products on the market and an unparalleled assortment of designs, materials, colours and even price points. Providing furniture buyers with choice along with a high level of quality at affordable prices has proven to be a winning formula for Nick Scali Furniture.
