So tell us a bit about
Acorn is well known on the island for its quality kitchens and bedrooms and the guys behind it had the idea to branch out further into interior design. Our showroom is at No.9 Market Street in town (you can't miss us painted in the Acorn green).
What do you offer at Acorn Interiors?
Broadly speaking, we sell furniture, contemporary lighting and home accessories from international designers and brands.
How is Acorn Interiors different from other furniture shops in Guernsey?
We have exclusive rights for some stunning contemporary brands never seen before in Guernsey. Giving the island the chance to enjoy a fresh new look is a firm focus for Acorn Interiors and to do that we're offering a broad range of furniture and lighting. In fact, our lighting options are huge; we've got everything from pendant lights to chandeliers and everything in between in a variety of exciting styles.
We're also really excited about our range of furniture for small spaces, including console tables and coffee tables that easily transform into dining tables; maximising space is key to many people and we want to help with that.
How does Acorn's retail
space shape what you do?
Visiting our 1,000sq ft. showroom is a visible and tactile experience - something you just don't get with online shopping. Material and colour samples are available in the shop so people can come in and get a true sense of what's available. Listening to customers and letting them outline their personal vision for their home is so important. It's about providing the personal touch and helping customers to choose the pieces that will realise their vision.
How do you select the pieces that you sell?
A lot of research goes into our selections as we want to offer customers quality, contemporary interior choices sourced internationally. Since opening in December we have already travelled around Europe visiting suppliers and trade shows to ensure we are at the forefront of home trends. 2017 has been an exciting year with Tom Dixon, Tom Raffield, Nude Glassware and Notre Monde brands added to our exclusive offering.
Finally, what benefit is
Guernsey going to get from Acorn Interiors?
More choice, a hands-on retail experience and the chance to take advantage of an excellent interior design service using state-of-the-art visualisation software so customers can connect with their choices and our designs.
Ultimately your home is where you want to spend your quality time so you want it to look and feel like your unique space; it should be an extension of your personality and we want to help islanders achieve that.
