Technically, you can’t really compare us to IKEA. We’re an all-American company, very small, and focused only on furniture kits. No Swedish meatballs here. There is one main comparison, though. IKEA’s business model and ours look alike to an outsider. We both opt to make you furniture kits you assemble at home. This makes shipping easier and more affordable, and can even give you a sense of accomplishment when you’ve finished the assembly process and take a step back to take a look at the result.
There is, however, one main difference between the yellow-blue giant and Abbey Bay: we’re creating furniture kits you’ll be handing down to generations to come. At a first glance, it may seem that our products are more expensive than you’ll find anywhere else. They’re not. If IKEA used the same high quality, hand-selected real wood materials for their furniture, and the same sturdy constructions that have survived decades of fashion mood swings and ensure that your piece will still be there when your grandchildren need a coffee table in their apartment, they’d be out of business in a week.
We’re not competing. IKEA has a place in some people’s homes, and sometimes you just need a coffee table that has a function, until it slowly breaks down and you’ve got the resources to invest in something timeless and time resistant. When that time has come, and you can see the value of a cherry wood side table that will stand by your for decades to come, we’re here to serve you.
