Byggmax: Swedish DIY-retailer launches unique store chain

Press release 2016-06-02 at 10.30 am

In June, the unique interior concept Design Your Living is launched by
the opening of a new concept store in central Stockholm. Customers
are offered an interior designer, free of charge, who assists with
everything from inspiration and choice of material to craftsmen and
construction engineers. Design Your Living is a groundbreaking
concept that can offer customers everything for both renovation and
interior design - all in one place.

On June 8 the doors open to the very first Design Your Living store at
Kungsgatan 15 in Stockholm. The store has a full assortment in order
to give the customer a thorough solution - for large or small
projects in interior design, refurbishment or major construction
projects. At the store you will find interior designers, Sweden's
largest library of materials, craftsmen and construction engineers at
a fixed price and moreover home delivery of all materials.

Behind the concept stands Swedish DIY-retailer Byggmax, who is
collaborating with several major providers in the construction-,
interior-, decoration- and design industry, all of them a part in the
Design Your Living's new overall concept. Together, they offer a
completely new solution for the interior interested target audience.
Marbodal Kök, Konradssons Kakel, Svenssons in Lammhult and Plantagen
are examples of some of the partners in the collaboration.

- With Design Your Living we create the future of home decoration and
refurbishments. We help customers with the design of their new homes
as well as taking care of the rest, all the way from planning to
finished results, says Magnus Agervald, CEO Byggmax Group AB.

The interior designers offer the client ideas, design and material
advice - all free of charge. By drawing up the room in 3D, you can
easily try out different wallpaper choices, floors and fixtures. The
client then decides what parts he or she wants to do on their own and
what parts he or she wants help with from the Design Your Living

- Design Your Living caters mainly to the target group 30+ who own
their homes, are interested in interior design but are short on time
and because of that reluctant to renovate. They will gladly receive
help to get that little extra in everyday life, they love interior
design trends and are happy to pay to get the job done. We help
clients with everything from inspiration and interior details to
total refurbishments, explains Magnus Agervald, CEO Byggmax Group AB.

There are no similar concepts in Europe today. Therefore, the
potential to establish Design Your Living on the European market is
vast. The vision for the future is to launch the concept outside the
Swedish borders.
