Direct trade-lower prices
How is it possible to lower prices by 30 to 50%?
This might be the immediate question that comes to your mind when reading this headline. Let us explain…
We have decided to keep the distribution of madetostay completely in our own hands from now on and to do without external trade levels. Sales without sales agents. If intermediaries, only those with whom we work closely together and who take over a part of the costs and tasks. We want to pass on these cost savings to our customers with new calculated, lower sales prices for all our products.
Why did you do this? What are the thoughts behind?
Direct trade with fair prices on all leves is the core idea. Regardless of whether you want to furnish a private home or, as an interior designer, face the challenge of realising a project with a customer, the madetostay product should reach you as cheaply and safely as possible without any detours.
To ensure that our prices are transparent at any level and to be able to meet our high standards of reliable and emphatic customer service with a personal connection to you are the main reasons for this step to switch to a direct route from the manufacturer to your place.
How does this decision correspond to your philosophy?
The philosophy of madetostay is a demanding collaboration of designers with producers or craftsmen to deliver the best possible quality directly to your home or shop without any additional margins. We are totally transparent in how we operate and why, including our pricing and information about the involved manufacturers.
The uniqueness of an outstanding product in quality, design and craftmanship is offered in a transparent supply chain at a fair price. This is it, no more, no less.
The lower prices, does it mean lower quality?
What are the designers saying?
"Our cooperation with suppliers takes place without price pressure. It is very important to us to pay honest prices to the craftsmen and factories. This fairness and openness creates a close relationship and offers space for optimisation and further development of the designs, it allows new ideas to emerge. The producer works with joy and high motivation on our designs, the raw material, the design and the craftsmanship enter into a symbiosis. Dissatisfaction, as it arises from low price pressure, has no place in this interaction."
What about the other components of the prices, apart from production?
Does your trade principle change or are you evolving?
Madetostay- more than another brand for interior design?
Our goal is to become a new movement of designers and craftspeople, to build a community, to create a network of like-minded people, architects, interior designers, retailers and clients that is constantly expanding. Let's call it cocreation, a creative process in which different participants take part to create emergent, new, previously unseen solutions, ideas and innovations.
