Kendall’s been home from college during his Christmas vacation so we put him to work with Loryn and Neville re-designing the look of our fine furniture website. Actually this is a project he started a year ago during last year’s holiday break, but it proved to be a more complex task than we anticipated. So Kendall’s been working it on and off while at school, but in earnest these last few weeks. We’re hoping to have the final touches put on the new website design next week.
I think you’ll like it. Kendall has cleaned up the clutter and created more space for what our customers have said is most important: photographs of our furniture. He’s also expanded the section of our website devoted to our green mission (forest conservation). And we’ve tried to make it easier to navigate by placing the shopping navigation menus on the top of the screen (not on the left side anymore). We’ve also added social media buttons (Facebook, Pinterest, Share, etc.) to help you bookmark or share the furniture you like best.
The “new look” is just a first step in responding to your requests for a better online shopping experience. Neville and Loryn are hard at work upgrading other features of our fine furniture website, equipping it with even more photos and making it faster, easier and more intuitive to use. Check in often over the next couple months and let us know what you think of our online upgrades. We’ll look for your comments below or on our Facebook.
