Leaders in the sofa and home furniture industry with high levels of brand awareness in the United Kingdom, DFS wanted to make the same connection with the Dutch market but needed some help in making that ‘click’ with a new consumer. Making a connection with a product purely through sales tactics couldn’t work, for us it had to be with a story and an emotion that would connect the consumer to the brand.close
Our inspiration came from all the stories and emotions that happen around a sofa; the waves of feelings, the close moments, the shallow breaths and euphoric cheers. The sofa became the hero of everyday life.
We realized that DFS was not simply making sofas, they were crafting a place that would play a significant role in all of our lives. A place where you could feel more every day.
DFS, Heartcrafted for Everyday.
