At Mobilia our team shares a passion for good design, be it a beautiful sofa, a simple, yet exquisitely detailed table or something as utilitarian as a pepper grinder. However what we really enjoy is sharing our passion and enthusiasm with customers.
But our job involves much more than just having an appreciation for good design.
We ask questions and listen to responses, constantly striving to offer our clients fresh ideas and suggestions which meet their individual needs. This consultative approach takes thought and time, but in the end the results prove the worth of this method. We all hate when we go into stores and are faced with high pressure sales people, that is why you will never experience that in our store. You decide what and when to buy. Our role is to help you make good decisions, and however long that takes, is just fine with us.
So, if you are simply selecting a gift for a loved one, choosing an accessory or undertaking a large scale design project, our team at Mobilia stands ready to offer advice and expertise to ensure optimum satisfaction.
Let us show you our definition of service.
