The Kitchenshop is a new venture for mydeco.com http://www.mydeco.com the UK’s largest furniture and home design website, expanding the range of items purchased directly through mydeco’s basket, and enabling the website to offer heavily discounted product ‘bundles’.

The first manufacturer to work with mydeco to offer product ‘bundles’ is Sabichi, whose kitchenware and accessories have been packaged into ‘back to Uni’ kitchenware bundles for students, providing all the essentials to equip a student kitchen at three price points (Basic, Premium and Deluxe).  Ranging from £52.50 for 14 kitchen basics to £142.50 for 19 deluxe items, the bundled packages represent savings of between 21% and 28% over the total cost of buying each item separately.

Nicole Vanderbilt, mydeco.com CEO comments “We’re delighted to be partnering with Sabichi to offer this exciting new range of product bundles, because we know that a huge part of why people shop online is convenience and value for money. These bundles make it possible to buy everything you need to equip a kitchen with one click – at a fantastic discount.”

Nicole adds “Launching a marketplace on mydeco.com cements our position as the best place to find the right item for your home, from the best possible range of retailers and manufacturers. In addition to our 1,500+ retailers, the Ixtens marketplace platform allows us to help our customers discover products from new brands and buy from multiple retailers in the same basket.”

Sabichi New Product Development Manager Emma Perruzza adds “The bundles we’ve put together with mydeco.com are ideal for students. Each and every item has been road-tested, so we’re confident that each package offers unbeatable value for money -something which is bound to be uppermost in student’s minds as they go back to Uni this month.”
