Wednesday, August 17th, 2011 - Milan Direct

Following on from its recent success in being listed on the BRW Fast Starters list, Milan Direct - Australia’s leading online furniture retailer - has scored another big coup.

The online retail powerhouse recently announced it has been awarded the impressive honour of facilitating the sell off of all the furniture used in the 2012 Olympic Games.

Tipped to be one of the biggest online furniture sales of all time, the sale will include every piece of furniture used in the games from chairs to sofas, bedroom furniture, even the beds themselves, adding up to more than 800,000 pieces of iconic furniture.

“It’s definitely an exciting honour to have been contracted to sell the Olympic Games furniture. With this furniture not only can we offer our customers more great furniture at even better prices, this particular range comes with the added appeal of carrying a special piece of history with it,” said Milan Direct Managing Director, Dean Ramler.

“In the past 12 months we have focused heavily on expanding our range to include things like bedroom furniture, shelving units, even wicker outdoor furniture. With the Olympic Games range we can add ‘special memorabilia’ to that mix. Any piece purchased from this unique furniture sell off is sure to provide an interesting talking point in any home,” said Mr Ramler.

Mr Ramler said consumers should expect the furniture to match the typical Milan Direct style: functional, stylish and affordable.

“Our focus is to always deliver market leading value, variety and quality to our customers.”
And it’s a focus that works. Beginning humbly with a staff of just two, the company has grown into a real Australian success story. Based on a ‘virtual retail store’ that results in the cutting of significant middleman costs, real savings are passed onto consumers. And with thousands of satisfied Australian and UK customers and over 300,000 pieces of designer furniture sold to date; Milan Direct continues to grow from strength to strength.
