First "shops" for PTMD in the UK at Taverham and Coolings

Lolly Lee's Orangery Collection launched PTMD shops in two UK garden centres last week; Taverham Nurseries in Norfolk and Coolings in Sevenoaks, Kent.

Dutch home interiors company PTMD has a collection of lighting, pots, glassware, furniture, textiles, artificial flowers and (wall) decoration created through a unique collaboration of creative artists, skilled producers and a network of passionate retailers across Europe and now in the UK too.

The Orangery Collection, set up by Lolly Lee, is the UK importer of PTMD and last week they set up the first PTMD "shops" in the UK at Taverham Nurseries and Coolings.

"I am so happy to be working alongside two great independent garden centres," Lolly told GTN Xtra as the display was fininshed at Taverham.  "My business partnership with PTMD is solid and supporting and we are now embarking on a large Facebook campaign for both centres to launch the shops. PTMD are supplying the centres with giveaways for the first 150 purchases. But the support will not stop there as we are on hand for special events throughout the year.

"The 2 concept shops look completely different as each buyer has selected their own products from the huge 7000 + SKU range available. The styling was planned by the in-house PTMD design team and then installed by the professional styling team to create the inspiration for the centre's customers. It's an exciting time as there is nothing like this in the U.K.

We've had so many nice comments from the passing customers, and they have bought items from the displays as they have been created.  The signs are extremely encouraging!"
