Renowned interior décor store Classic Mouldings, the premier provider of ‘High Class Interior’ decoration work is expanding. According to Franklin Mwirigi, a technical interior designer with the firm, the store had to be expanded to match with the growing line of varied interior products.

Power Innovations have recently opened a store at the newly expanded Junction Mall as a means of coming closer to the consumer. The company, which is a wholesaler and Importer of Electrical Equipment and light fittings in Kenya, has other stores at Yaya Centre and Unga House.

Décor Interiors, another fast growing design house is set to move to a new location in the Westlands suburb, while Furniture Palace are preparing to open a new state-of-theart showroom in the same area in the near future. The moves come hot on the heels of Antarc, a big player in the provision of office and home furniture, which recently opened a mega showroom on Muthithi Road in Westlands.

Citron Interiors are also constructing a state-of-the-art showroom in Westlands, along Muthithi Road as well.

This goes to show that the industry is fast growing in the East African region and now more than ever, home and office owners are very interested in the interiors of their living spaces and want to keep up with modern trends in the industry that are in line with new and changing lifestyles.

The top movers in the industry are expanding and opening new stores around the city to meet the growing demands for tasteful living and are doing this with the aim of getting closer to the trendy and conscious consumer who has a strong shopping power, is looking for quality products and wants value for money.
