Working with Retailers

Design for retailers allows designers to create product ranges, not just individual pieces. Retailers typically have a clear direction based on their current product strategy and customer research, which designers must adhere to while adding their own creative touch.

Retailers may also have specific CMF guidelines that designers must follow. One advantage of designing for retailers is that successful products can remain in production for many years with updates to colours and finishes. Royalties are often the preferred compensation model

“In retail, design holds a central role in product strategy. By focusing on the latest innovations, retailers can stay relevant to customers and maintain a competitive edge.”

Johnathan Marsh

Oak Furnitureland

Oak Furnitureland is a UK-based retailer of solid wood furniture & upholstery with an annual turnover of £300M+. It has an online shop and over 70 stores covering the UK, the business has significant customer penetration and a significant market share within many of the furniture categories it offers.

OFL is looking to differentiate its collection by adding good design, choice, and new materials/ techniques to broaden its customer appeal.


Heal’s continues its legacy of supporting great design. With stores based across the UK, we’re proud to showcase established brands as well as new and emerging designers.

In 2004 we launched the annual Heal’s Discovers collection. The collection promotes the innovative work of new designers and its alumni includes the likes of John Reeves, Anthony Dickens and Sebastian Cox.

We make buying great quality furniture really affordable and easy. And it’s delivered right to your doorstep with absolute care. How do we keep our prices in check and our designs on trend?

When you have a physical store, you also have multiple overhead costs – rent, utility bills, salaries etc. These often trickle down to consumers and are disguised as product costs. Multiply these over many stores and it soon adds up. To keep our prices low, we created our online store which caters to your design and budget needs.


For three decades, UGT has been a trusted presence in Australian homes, establishing deep-rooted connections and earning unwavering trust.

Embracing transformation, UGT has positioned itself as an essential supplier for both traditional and emerging markets, sparking significant growth. Looking ahead, the future of UGT holds even greater promise than its storied past.

Working with Manufacturers

Working with manufacturers can be a highly rewarding experience for designers. Not only do designers have the opportunity to directly communicate with the factory and technicians, but many manufacturers have a broad client base and even their own direct-to-customer setup.
Royalties are often the agreement of choice when working with manufacturers. At first glance, some manufacturers may not seem design-driven, but this is not always the case, for example, Italsed produces products for Anthropologie, Next, Soho House and Bolia.com and many other notable brands.

Overall, working for a manufacturer can provide designers with an opportunity to collaborate with a variety of clients, expand their skillset, and gain valuable experience in the industry.

“We cater to businesses in Europe and the US, developing ideas for diverse markets by collaborating with various designers to stay ahead in product development.”

Mark Mills, Global Sales and Commercial, Co-owner

Seasoned director in the furniture industry, proficient in negotiation, business planning, product design, sales, and retail.
