INTERNATIONAL Brands Gallery (IBG) recently held an interior designer cocktail evening in conjunction with the grand opening of its ninth outlet at the Intermark Mall in Kuala Lumpur.
A premium furniture retail chain, IBG is the principal distributor of international designer brands including Tempur, Napure, Englander, Viscopedic, Calia, Mèta and Gautier.
IBG, which has been in Malaysia for seven years, supports world-leading, eco-friendly furniture brands.
Media personnel and interior designers were given a look into the various furniture available at IBG recently, which included a variety of high-end European furniture, bedding selections, dining sets, mattresses, coffee tables and lights.
According to IBG’s general manager, Ratnadewi Bahwandi, many of their sofas are from Italy and are made from genuine cowhide leather while their furniture is from France.
“French furniture is not widely available here,” said Ratnadewi. “We have many China- made products (in Malaysia) so this stands out.”
Many of their customers are middle to upper middle class who are looking for pieces with better varnish and other high-end items.
According to sales consultant Joann Lai, IBG is the only one in Malaysia to import some of these brands.
“Napure, Englander and Viscopedic are manufactured in Malaysia while brands such as Tempur, Calia, Mèta and Gautier are manufactured overseas,” said Lai.
Some of their bedding selections have pressure relieving properties and are maintenance free, and can help with neck and back problems.
Their mattresses can range between RM3,000 and RM8,000, depending on the brand and type of mattress.
Their furnitures help maximise storage space with their innovative designs, such as a console table that can be extended to sit additional guests.
They currently have 10 branches in West Malaysia. For more information, visit www.ibg.com.my
