Have you ever bought furniture for your home and, when faced with a choice, gone for the cheaper option? Only to find that within a few years it needs replacing or has literally fallen apart?
As my grandfather used to say “Buy cheap, buy twice” and sadly it is so often true, which is why our carefully curated furniture range has evolved, based not just on design, but also with quality and sustainability in mind.
The Bruntland Commission of the United Nations states that
“Sustainability involves meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
Here at Sapphire Spaces there is nothing ‘throw-away’ about the furniture we sell. The furniture we offer not only looks incredible in any room throughout the home, but also makes a sound investment – pieces that retain value and can be handed down through the family over time.
When we commit to working with a furniture brand it is not a decision we take lightly, the furniture we sell and the manufacturers we work with must share our philosophy and, from the outset, our aim has always been to bring long-lasting, design-led furniture to our clients in the South West. For too long homeowners in Devon, Cornwall, Dorset and Somerset were having to buy from further afield if they wanted something from esteemed brands such as Knoll, Carl Hansen & Son, Vitra, Fritz Hansen and B&B Italia (to name a few) but all that changed when Sapphire Spaces first opened its doors in 2012.
Our furniture showroom, conveniently located on the outskirts of Exeter, showcases designers and brands who take pride in the construction and finish of their furniture, combining the best of today’s technology with traditional, handmade craftsmanship and using sustainable, well-sourced materials.
So whether you are buying for your home or workplace, you can feel safe in the knowledge that when relaxing in a Grand Repos lounge chair, writing at an Ercol desk or enjoying any other piece from our furniture range you have secured a handcrafted piece that you will never throw away.
