We’re With You.
Obnoxiously expensive furniture with a slew of historic low downs don’t make the wallet cut. At times, we head to named retailers and fuss about the incorrigible prices they set or quality lack thereof . Either a small something from a big brand costs a ton, or a liver, and a big something from a lesser brand offers you a confrontation with an unmotivated or uninformed staff.
We do it differently at Playground.
We’ve Heard You.
The average (‘cos it isn’t high-end with plush seating and sections of designer’s bio) piece has been sourced from factories carefully. We’ll get back to carefully later. It’s average in terms of the whole package, affordability and quality. Affordability means you’re more than happy with what you paid for compared to what you’re interacting with. Quality means you’re more than happy with how long you can interact with the product happily without having to call in for complains. We’ve worked on that. Lastly, we’d like to know you and understand your concerns after a purchase to ensure it’s more than affordability of quality, but the Experience…

Carefully. Each piece has been sourced cautiously with deep sensitivity based on what works and what doesn’t from factories around the world. That means no unnecessary “middle man costs” when we bring the design to your doorstep. This simply means no exorbitant costs for a simple sofa, lounge, or chair. On top of that, we rake in European designers (who has worked with esteemed brands – you can ask us) to conceptualize each piece for Playground so that the “is it legit?” concern part is “baby-sitted” to perfection. In a nutshell – no middleman bullshit, direct from factories, damn affordable, legit designers, with friendly after-service care. ß Hold us to that.
No point explaining about a brand if there’s no pre-story. Why Playground? We’d like our collection to be affordable and attainable to everyone. Just like how you folks dazzled and danced at the playgrounds free-spiritly without a care back in the day – that joy that was so easily attainable with youth and innocence should also be reachable in one way or another, design pieces included. Experience is key and we know it. We’re here to bring back, with serious guild and ease, those memories of community spirit to the home – comfort and camaraderie.
