For the first time, Retro Europe has entered the top 10 of Europe’s biggest online retro furniture stores in 2018.

Confirming its status as a mainstream retailer of their own label modern designer furniture.

Retro Europe’s rise through to the top has been progressive and aided by aggressive marketing strategies.

Ten years ago it was in the top 50 online retro furniture sellers in Europe, and today, well-honed marketing of Retro Europe’s exclusively designer furniture has been the key to their success.

Retro Europe’s success has come during a recession.

However, it’s no coincidence that Retro Europe’s success has come during a recession and a crisis economic period.

Retro Europe’s rivals spent heavy on bricks and mortar very expensive superstores and shops, and the recession was instrumental in their downfall, leaving them with overpriced furniture stock in their expensive to operate superstores.

Retro Europe understood the strength of their position as an up and coming challenging online brand.

Retro Europe concentrated on a ‘back to basics strategy’ and ‘affordability with quality’ and decided to operate solely as an online seller with very low overhead costs.

A clever message that helped to establish the Le Bauhaus Modernist Furniture Collection.

Being funny and showing a lack of respect for people or products that are generally taken seriously, in a direct blunt manner, was the theme to the Launch Advertising Strategy for the Le Bauhaus Modernist Furniture Collection of Armchairs, Sofas, and Corner Sofas from Retro Europe.

The clever marketing message created by Alicante Studios Advertising and Marketing Agency, ”Retro Europe do not understand why anyone will buy a 1000 Euros sofa for 10,000 Euros”, helped to establish the all-important advantages of buying a Le Bauhaus Sofa from Retro Europe at 999 Euros, as opposed to buying an LC2 Le Corbusier Sofa for 10,000 Euros.

The message was simple and subtle and incredibly successful for Retro Europe.

”Retro Europe do not understand why anyone will buy a 1000 Euros sofa for 10,000 Euros”.

The main advertising theme was a great success; ”Retro Europe do not understand why anyone will buy a 1000 Euros sofa for 10,000 Euros”

Value for money retro furniture and a quality buying experience is what people want…..but first, you need to attract visitors to your website.

This economical selling approach has seen Retro Europe climb into a top 10 slot of online retro furniture sellers in Europe.

However, the biggest problem for online sellers is attracting new buyers to a website.

So Retro Europe decided to make an investment in the marketing services from Alicante Studios Advertising and Marketing Agency.

And a new and discerning client who previously purchased from expensive superstores is now buying online from Retro Europe.

Priced To Be The Market Leader

Retro Europe price their brand new and exclusively designed Le Bauhaus Modernist Designer Collection from 549.00 Euros

Retro Europe has designed and created a new modernist designer styled furniture collection under their own label, and marketed under the brand logo of Reinvented, Affordable, Great Design, and priced to be the market leader.

Le Bauhaus is one-tenth of the Le Corbusier.

Price, Size, Construction, Comfort, and Support.

Retro Europe has launched the Le Bauhaus in direct competition to the 100-year-old Le Bauhaus LC2 Retro Furniture Collection.

It has been announced, Le Bauhaus as part of the ‘Affordable Price Campaign’ by Retro Europe, will be marketed as the ‘Better Alternative to Le Corbusier” and proposes to attack the Le Corbusier LC2 on; Price, Size, Construction, Comfort, and Support.

Le Corbusier LC2- why so expensive?

Price, Size, Construction, Comfort, and Support.

Retro Europe rolled out the ‘Direct Comparison Crunch’ initiative with the launch of their own-brand Le Bauhaus designer sofas and armchairs.

It was not a surprise marketing move, by differentiating on price and also focusing on its construction and better proportional values and unique functional attributes, the Le Bauhaus is a clear winner over the expensive, proportionally very small, poorly constructed, and extremely uncomfortable rival, the LC2 from Le Corbusier.

”Like for Like Price Comparison”; Retro Europe is one-tenth of the Le Corbusier.

Retro Europe is proving itself as a value for money retailer with its ”like for like” marketing strategy.

Their ”like for like” campaign video produced by their marketing agency Alicante Studios features two identical families, a Mother, Father, and daughter sitting down to watch television.

The first family is seen sitting very comfortably on the Le Bauhaus 3- seat Sofa laughing together watching a famous comedy programme.

The second family is seen watching the exact same programme sitting on the Le Corbusier 3 – place sofa, but cramped up together, and looking miserable because they are not comfortable.

An advertising banner appears on screen showing the dimensions of both sofas. Clearly showing the bigger 3 seat sofa from Retro Europe to be more comfortable than the smaller 3 seat sofa from Le Corbusier.

Traditional Furniture Craftsmanship from Retro Europe.

The video produced by Alicante Studios for Retro Europe then shows each family again on the sofas. The family sitting on the Le Corbusier are slowly sinking as the cushions slip between the straps. Le Corbusier LC2 is constructed on a steel frame with elasticated straps for support.

The family sitting on the Le Bauhaus Sofa have no such problems as the Le Bauhaus is constructed using the traditional Furniture Craftsmanship methods of furniture construction. The Le Bauhaus is constructed on a solid hardwood frame with a sprung deck with layers of multi-density cushioning for comfort and great support.

Le Bauhaus Sofa 3 place -999 Euros versus Le Corbusier LC2 3-place Sofa around 10,000 Euros.

A spokesperson for Retro Europe said: “We continue to listen carefully to our customers who say they want lower affordable prices that offer exceptional value for money on modern designer, high-quality modernist retro furniture, and we will continue to keep our overheads and cost of sale expenditure low to enable us to provide high-quality designer furniture affordable to the majority of our clients. Retro Europe will continue to be even more competitive and improve our customers perceived high value for money buying experience.”

With a Le Bauhaus from Retro Europe 3 place sofa one-tenth of the price of a Le Corbusier LC2, bigger and with better proportions, constructed in the traditional way for a lifetime of use, expect Retro Europe to continue a positive trajectory on sales in the coming year.

Retro Designer Furniture in Ordinary life

The Thrill of The Ordinary Life

Going to work. Doing the washing. Picking up the shopping. Our everyday lives are not exactly full of passion and excitement.

But when we pay close attention for a moment, the ordinary may hold more beauty than we first thought. A simple undemanding passion can become something out of this world and totally thrilling and special.

This is the common theme for modern designer retro furniture owners — and one that can be all-consuming, passionate and a complete delight.

Why do people fall madly in love with modern designer retro furniture?

To become a better, healthier, happier version of themselves, or to discover their deep inner emotions, and encourage a positive and empowering sense of self?

I doubt it. After all, it is only furniture.

Or, is it only furniture?.

Truth be told, it is ”the only furniture” any of us retro bloodied designer furniture lovers will have in our homes.

Modern designer retro furniture has always been great. Just talking about the true benefits of modernist furniture or mid-century furniture conjures up a true feeling of creativity, imagination, and devotion to the Retro Furniture Movement.

When we buy an adorable example of modern contemporary retro furniture, with stunning sharp decisive design details, it is heartwarming, wholesome, and totally rewarding to own, admire and above all use.

Big ideas are important. Without them, no great modern design retro furniture concepts will ever leave the page and go into production. New designer retro furniture would never get made.

But sometimes the little design touches and attention to the detail of the designer furniture can add up to become what makes something work. That little special detail makes the furniture have a true function, and not just furniture art for the sake of it, but in your face, use it everyday furniture, and love it more every day as it gets older and develops a character.

In this month’s ”Worth Sharing” we are celebrating the rise of Retro Europe who have some wonderful new products in their online retro furniture store.

The Retro Europe Modern Designer Furniture Collections have a constantly clean sharp design style, they are excellent quality and a standout pricing menu.

It is worth looking at the inspiration to their core concept designer furniture. Behind their design style, is Le Corbusier and Florence Knoll, and as with these two monsters of retro furniture talent, Retro Europe understands that great design is always the attention to detail.
