Decorcafe Conversation: Deirdre McGettrick shares her Kuldea
In 2017 Deirdre Mc Gettrick and partner, Ray Wright bought a new apartment together and, like so many of us, found themselves spending hours searching for furniture. Deirdre took the lead and, determined to find the perfect piece for every room, reviewed all the options available. Sourcing relevant websites and comparing items across brands seemed un-necessarily complicated and time-consuming. Frustrated by the process she thought that there had to be a better way and had, what she describes as her “cool idea”: the concept for the new Kuldea brand. Kuldea.com
Launched this year, Kuldea is the first furniture comparison website. It is an online platform that helps people to search, find and compare furniture from a variety of brands in one place. It brings all furniture retailers and products onto one website, bringing the smaller retailers alongside the larger more well known companies, so that you can make a more individual choice.
Many of the beautiful brands that we are familiar with have already signed up from Lombok to Houseology and Cox and Cox, and there are more joining every day.
Alongside the products, Deirdre is collaborating with interior designer experts to create a directory of interior inspiration and top tips to guide furniture buyers in their journey.
In this Decorcafe conversation with Debbie Blott, Deirdre McGettrick shares the story of the start-up and development of the brand and how it is helping people to find, choose and shop for new furniture in a new, easier way.
