103/107 Great Western Road, Glasgow
Delcor opens new shop in Edinburgh - 26th March, 2004Delcor's flagship furniture store on Great Western Road has made considerable impact since it opened in September 2002. Moving from Queen Street, after 10 years in this city centre location, it fits in very well in an area which is fast becoming the nucleus for interior design shopping in Glasgow.
The furniture store offers good old-fashioned customer service coupled with contemporary furniture designs to meet the needs of the discerning customer. What I like about it is the flexibility - you see something that you love but the colour or fabric is not quite right - you don't have to worry as you can choose from an array of designs and textures. This means that you can express your individual taste - with all the support you want from Delcor's knowledgable and friendly staff. Whether your taste is in leather or fabric there will be a selection to suit your choice from Aniline Leather to Ralph Lauren velvets. I had quite a lot of fun recently when I spotted a sofa I fancied and was then able to pick fabric to suit our colour scheme.
Once you're happy with the covering material, you can consider whether you would like the back height adjusted; the depth of the seating and even the type of filling you would like. Expert advice is very useful at this point and I found the whole experience very interesting.
Established in 1967, Delcor designs, manufactures and delivers all it's own furniture. Based in Northumberland it employs skilled craftsmen and women to manufacture high quality bespoke upholstery. Items can be made specifically to your specification within a four to six week period.
Since opening, the new store has attracted many visitors and sales have already tripled in this high profile West End location. Conveniently close to the M8, Delcor has prestigious neighbours such as Clive Christian Kitchens and So to Bed and many other interior design shops. Not surpisingly more and more people are visiting the area intent on expressing their individual tastes when furnishing their homes.
I'm expecting our new sofa to arrive next week and feel confident that it will be just what we are after - and highly delighted that I bought this item in Delcor's brilliant sale.
Drop in and have a look around - the staff will make you very welcome and you can browse until your heart's content.
