Chanintr Living launches month-long Phuket sale

Legacy Phuket Gazette



PHUKET: Chanintr Living has launched a month-long sale at its classy imported furniture outlet in Phuket, providing islanders and visitors the chance to grab quality furniture at a knocked down price.

Chanintr Living was established in 1994 and has several outlets in Bangkok and Singapore, as well as one multi-brand location in Phuket.

The reputable dealer’s current sale, from May 15 to June 14, is offering pieces of high-end furniture for discounts of a minimum of 50 per cent depending on the item, said Warrawan Foedisch, Chanintr Living Phuket’s general manager.

Although this dealer mainly imports luxury furniture from the United States, it also brings in high-end kitchen designs from Europe. Among the American brands it has successfully sold here are Baker, Barbara Barry and Ethnicraft. Premium European brands popular in Phuket include Bulthaup from Germany and Minotti from Italy.

“You can leave wardrobes out because today’s clients don’t seem to need them as most opt for the built-in variety. Of the loose furniture, it’s mostly for living, dining and bedrooms, and we are able to sell all three categories,” said Ms Warrawan.

“The focal point of a house is the living room, which is the owner’s face, so everyone wants something attractive to receive guests.

“A dining table is also an important element for when they have guests over for dinner. The bedroom, though, depends on the owner’s personality.”

The furniture import tax has come down to 20 percent, from 30 to 40 per cent levied when Chanintr Living opened its doors back in 1994.

“The dollar hasn’t appreciated a lot and our clients can accept it. When we started out it was 25 baht to the dollar now it’s over 30,” said Ms Warrawan.

Last year’s lengthy political protests did not affect this leading retailer of luxury furniture in a meaningful way.

Ms Warrawan said that the only effect was clients postponing purchases, but in the end – as they had either already bought or were taking transfer of a house – they all came back.

“We have a lot of clients at Outrigger Laguna… actually it’s evenly split here between Thais and foreigners, perhaps slightly more foreigners because they seem keener on furniture.”
