Something slightly different is happening when it comes to the new Kingsley Range of retail shelving, shop fittings and merchandising stands. A lot different as it happens. Without putting too fine a point on it, a lot of the generic retail shelving we see up and down the high street has about as much charisma as an aeroplane salad. It’s all function over style, and it’s not even particularly cheap. But what if you could have modular shop fittings that are both stylish and functional? With the new Kinglsey range of retail display fixtures and fittings you’re purchasing signature pieces of hand-crafted furniture that you’re just as likely to want in your own home as much as your store. You could even sell them as product, safe in the knowledge you can always buy another piece from stock.
The Kingsley range of visual merchandising units are made from reclaimed floor boards, industrial metal and antique finished wood – all of which from a design perspective, is not just currently on trend, but is right up our street. Literally! Because they’re made in our back yard; each and every unit, right here in Brixton, London, England, UK. We stress the point because we have a thing about pretty much anything locally produced. It’s not always possible, but when it is; shout about it loudly we say. The merchandising range is mobile and modular, so you can create your own unique retail shelving combinations to fit your own unique spaces. And it’s a labour of love; retail furniture hand-crafted by artisan furniture makers instead of rushed off an assembly line. So, without further ado, here is The Kingsley and the Kingsley X range – available now from stock.
Kingsley Major to minor
From major to minor here are 3 sizes of free standing merchandising units consisting of metal frame with lockable castors and removable wooden shelves. The shelves are handmade in Brixton (we’ll say it at least 3 more times before the end of this blog) from reclaimed wooden floor boards. The floor boards are used to create a rustic frame for the stained plywood base. Nail holes and imperfections in the wood are left wherever possible adding to the industrial look of the racks.
Kingsley X shop fittings
The Kingsley X range is a gift for retail, pop up, market traders and ‘exhibitionists’ alike, in fact anyone looking for the ultimate versatile merchandising fittings that don’t compromise on style. The X frame is collapsible and the wooden tops and shelves make for easy storage – a truly mobile solution. There are tons of configurations you can make, just use your imagination. Configure your own or choose from a variety of ready-made kits. Below is a REALLY rough but useful video on How to build your Kingsley X retail display stand.
Chic as chit
Metal retail display trolley consisting of a waxed metal frame and 4 cleaned vintage potato chitting trays to create the shelves. The whole retail display unit is on lockable wheels. Due to the quality of the materials used, the stand is very durable and sturdy. Perfect for displaying all sorts of things including beverages, foods and hampers. Optional extras available to ensure the trays tilt forwards.
The Kingsley Modular table comes in two different sizes and does exactly what it says on the tin; modular in nature and designed to help you create a wide range of sizes and shapes to best suit your outlet.
Handmade in the UK, the waxed steel frame and wooden elements are once again made in Brixton. The wooden table tops and shelves are made from rough sawn pine with a brown polish that’s applied to create an authentic vintage industrial display table. These really are beautiful merchandising fittings, whether it’s for a farm shop or high end designer outlet.
The entire Kingsley range of shop fittings is strong and designed to last. They’re an investment that will pay back quickly in increased sales. Make sure you look at the range of Kingsley risers that are designed to sit on top of these display units to give different height options, perfect for merchandising a variety of products at different heights.
So there you have it. Your retail shelving doesn’t just have to be functional; there’s no reason your shop fittings can’t style and class too. Turn an ordinary space into extra-ordinary retail space that your customer will want to stay and shop in.
