How to streamline you procurement process as an interior designer

Efficiently furnishing your projects can be a daunting task, especially when it comes to procuring the right furniture pieces. In our previous blog post titled "The Shift: Why Interior Designers Choose Sourcing Agents of Retailers", we delved into the intricacies of this process. However, navigating purchases and managing deliveries can be equally challenging, often consuming valuable time and energy. Juggling multiple vendors and shipment dates and ensuring quality control amidst the hustle and bustle of project management can quickly become overwhelming. But don't worry; trusting a professional procurement service to handle these complexities can transform the process into a seamless and stress-free experience. That's where furniture procurement steps in.


What is Furniture Procurement and How Can We Streamline It

Furniture procurement involves the professional selection, purchasing, and delivery of furniture items to your specified location. It's a meticulous process that demands constant attention to detail. By partnering with a dedicated procurement team, you can steamline your furniture procurement and reclaim precious time and focus on other crucial aspects of your project, knowing that every detail is being expertly managed.


Our team recently completed a project where we managed the procurement of four 20-foot containers, each headed for the USA but to four different locations and nine different projects. This required a great deal of logistical skill, attention to detail, and passion for the fast-paced industry we work in.


Benefits of Professional Procurement

Our procurement service is ideal for busy designers and retailers who want to prioritise their time and creativity over sourcing and shopping. As a designer, your main focus should be designing, not finding the right products. This is where we come in.


At Burnt Oringe Intl. Ltd, we have a team of experienced procurement professionals who will happily help you streamline your furniture procurement and handle all your sourcing needs, whether you have a tight deadline or require specialised expertise. Our extensive knowledge and strong relationships with factories allow us to find your required items directly from the source without involving any middlemen or trade vendors.


We work directly with factories, so we can customise your products to fit your design and your client’s needs. We also help streamline your delivery process by managing all logistics and ensuring quality control through meticulous inspection of all items. This ensures that any issues are addressed before the items reach your project site.


All you need to do is select a delivery date for your client's home, office, or restaurant and unpack and place your beautiful pieces. With our procurement service, you can focus on what you do best – designing – while we take care of everything else.


Combatting Decision Fatigue

Clients often experience decision fatigue when undertaking large-scale projects. The sheer number of decisions required, combined with the demands of daily life, can quickly overwhelm even the most organised individuals. To ease this burden, we handle furniture specification and procurement, allowing you to focus on more important matters.


Quality Control and Logistics

Our clients can expect a seamless experience as we handle everything from flooring and hinges to furniture and artwork.


With our professional procurement service, you can rest assured that your project's furnishing needs are in capable hands. Say goodbye to stress and decision fatigue – and hello to effortless furniture procurement.


Production Process

After sharing your design requirements with our design team, we will promptly begin sourcing the necessary pieces. Typically, we provide two to three options for each piece. Once the final selections are made and approved, we create a purchase proposal for you to sign and pay for the items. Since your items will likely come from different factories, we coordinate shipping from a central warehouse to reduce costs. Additionally, we handle multiple payments to the factories to minimize the number of payments you need to make. Throughout the production process, we track each item and keep you informed of its progress. Once all items are completed, we will arrange to ship them to you. We will maintain open communication with you during this entire process.

Arrival Process

After your furniture has arrived at your designated port, our logistics agents will reach out to you to coordinate the delivery of your products to either your warehouse or project site. From there, all you need to do is unpack and place your items in the desired location.
