Antiques World, formerly known as Driscoll’s Antiques, is an established family-run business who specialise in selling genuine, authentic antique furniture in the UK. They sell their furniture through their online store and at their large warehouse in Lancashire. The owner, James Driscoll, was looking to update his online presence and we proposed that we would redesign his website to bring it up to date and make it more user-friendly. The new website also needed to have a bigger focus, not only the products but the blog too, to help boost SEO.
We gave the Antiques World website a brand new look that is clean, fresh and sophisticated, with a warm, elegant colour palette that matches the photography on the site. The new website has an eye-catching banner image on the homepage that instantly draws users in. Products and product categories are clearly laid out and an intuitive category menu makes browsing furniture much easier than before. The site is also now much more dynamic, pulling in related content such as reviews and blog posts on the store pages. The blog is now an integral part of the website too, and we created custom sections for the blog posts to show related products for sale and sold, so users are always able to easily find their way back to the related store pages. The new website has also been further optimised for SEO and has a PageSpeed score of 90%.
Ben and Faye re-designed our website antiquesworld.co.uk. I asked them to make it look and feel more modern but still keeping the simple design and easy to use. I also specified, to make it super fast with our photos to load and display to their best potential. They spent lots of time with me discussing the different options, sent over lots of different designs for me to choose from. They gave me lots of advice and really came up with some brilliant ideas that we implemented. I am so pleased with the results; I now have a beautiful looking website that is fast, easy to use and far better than I ever could have imagined.James Driscoll - Owner - Antiques World
