Artisan Furniture has established itself as a premier supplier of high-quality, British-inspired furniture and home décor to retailers across the United States. With a focus on luxurious fabrics, classic silhouettes, and sustainably-sourced hardwoods, Artisan aims to bring timeless British design to modern American homes.
At the core of Artisan’s offerings are its tiered purchasing programs for retailers. These flexible options allow businesses of all sizes to take advantage of Artisan’s collection and dropship services. The company provides a designer dropship furniture program for small retailers, a stocking dealer program for mid-sized businesses, and a container volume program for major wholesale furniture suppliers.
This range of programs serves to promote Artisan’s commitment to local craftsmanship and responsible materials sourcing. By scaling options based on a retailer’s individual needs, Artisan supports small artisan workshops in India where their products are meticulously hand-crafted. The company only uses solid wood from managed teak forests, avoiding irresponsible deforestation.
We will explore the unique benefits and considerations of each purchasing program. Whether you are looking to test out select pieces or buy full container loads, Artisan aims to provide a customized solution. Their tiered system gives retailers the flexibility needed in today’s omnichannel furniture market while maintaining sustainable values. If you are looking to add high-quality, British-inspired furnishings to your inventory, Artisan’s programs facilitate easy wholesale ordering and white-glove dropshipping. Here is a draft of the next chapter after the Introduction:
Designer Dropship Furniture Program
The Designer Dropship program is an ideal way for small retailers or those looking to test out Artisan Furniture’s products to get started. With no minimum orders required, retailers can purchase exactly what they need through this program.
No minimums: Order one piece or one hundred — there are no minimum orders to place. Retailers can purchase as much or as little inventory as needed.
Artisan fulfills orders: Once a retailer places a dropship order, Artisan Furniture will package and ship the items directly to the customer. The retailer does not need to hold any inventory.
Pay only designer prices: Retailers pay only Artisan’s wholesale designer dropship prices. This allows them to maintain full profit margins.
White glove service: Artisan handles the entire fulfillment process, shipping orders in their own premium packaging. Neither Artisan’s branding nor contact info ever appear.
First -Low-risk onboarding: The dropship program allows new Artisan retailers to test out products without commitments. If the items perform well, they can graduate to larger bulk orders.
Second -Buy one-offs: No need to commit to huge inventory purchases. Retailers can buy as little or as much as needed to meet demand.
Third -Free shipping: Artisan Furniture provides free shipping within 3-5 business days on all dropship orders. Customers receive items quickly.
Fourth -Maintain margins: By only paying wholesale designer prices, retailers enjoy healthy margins on Artisan’s premium products.
Fifth -Hands-off fulfillment: Artisan handles packing, shipping, tracking, returns, and customer service for every order. Retailers simply sell. Here is a draft of the Stocking Dealer Program chapter:
Stocking Dealer Program
The Stocking Dealer program from Artisan Furniture is designed for mid-sized retailers that want to stock consistent inventory of Artisan’s products. This program offers lower costs per item compared to the Designer Dropship program, but does have minimum order requirements.
Lower per-item cost: By buying full container loads, retailers pay less per piece than with designer dropship.
Minimum orders: There is a 1 container load minimum order (around 50-60 pieces depending on products).
Own and control inventory: Retailers purchase and house stock to ship to customers as needed.
Bulk order discounts: Bigger purchases mean better discounts and lower costs.
Reduced costs: Paying less per item increases profit margins on Artisan’s premium products.
In-stock control: Having consistent inventory enables better management of stock levels.
Bulk discounts: Large purchases allow access to the best pricing Artisan offers.
White-glove service: Artisan can optionally help with warehousing, picking, packing, and shipping orders.
Higher minimums: Container loads represent a bigger upfront investment than designer dropship.
Warehouse space: Retailers need room to store and manage wholesale inventory.
Logistics planning: Managing purchase levels, stock, and shipping requires operational scale.
Artisan Stocking Dealer program provides lower wholesale costs in exchange for higher minimums and logistical needs. Here is a draft of the Container Volume Program chapter:
