I'm going to give up selling furniture in Poland. Selling furniture to company in Poland is almost impossible to us.... I sold furniture to UK to US to Malta to Australia to Cyprus but I don't understand why I always fail in Poland market. This is so crazy!!! I have nothing but frustration.

P.S: I sell high quality furniture in medium to high price from China.

Poland is one of the biggest furniture manufacturers in Europe 80 percent goes on export ...

The problem is NOT with your furniture, but with the ingrained attitude of Poles not to buy new furnityre every so many years. The older generation has their own furniture which they have had passed down from their parents or grandparents, and the younger generation does not have the money to buy new.

The best thing I can suggest is to barrage stores large such as Ikea or similar and see if they would be willing to try to sell your goods, or try and get involved with Trade shows where furniture is one of the items on display.

I see Hoft is closing down too in Warsaw ( Blue City and Domoteka) , they were selling the UK Habitat brand of furniture and accessories.
