Sofa.com chooses Glasgow for biggest showroom to date

Furniture retailer Sofa.com is to open its biggest showroom to date next month in the Finnieston area of Glasgow.

The launch of the 7,800 square foot space will follow store openings in Chelsea, Islington, Bankside, Bath, Edinburgh and Amsterdam.

The new showroom marks something of a homecoming for the company’s Glaswegian chief executive Vince Gunn who said: “I’m absolutely delighted to introduce sofa.com to my home town. As a business, we seek out buildings that are full of history and character, and set in unique locations, so we can create retail spaces that really inspire.

“Not only is the building a former auction house, but it is also situated amongst the Georgian terraces of St. Vincent Crescent, within a conservation area full of architectural and historical interest. We always aim to respect the area that we move our brand into – ensuring that we enhance the local community and its surrounding areas.”

Sofa.com has created a number of jobs in Scotland during the past year through both its Edinburgh showroom and distribution facility in Alloa.

“People are integral to sofa.com and we are delighted to increase the numbers of our Scottish team with the launch of our Glasgow showroom,” said Gunn.

He added: “I have always regarded Glasgow as a city of commerce and I know that Glaswegians are very brand aware. As such, coming to Glasgow represents a huge market opportunity for sofa.com as there is nowhere else in the city where people can come to visit nearly 8,000ft² of inspiring furniture design.”
