The Challenge

Buying a new home has always driven furniture sales and as a furniture retailer that markets to young, aspirational consumers, Bolia found that the new financial downturn had left their main demographic without the ability to buy a new home and furnish it. The brand realized it needed a new approach to drive sales, even though its customers had stopped buying new homes.

The Realization

The creative direction came from the insight that having a new home is a major milestone and achievement in someone’s life. By refurnishing their current space in a way that reflects their own distinct personality, customers could still feel like they’ve bought a new home without having to move.

The solution

‘Individual Expressionism’ became the foundation for all creative initiatives. Each yearly campaign focuses on the concept that our homes are places where we can express ourselves—that we can change our lives by changing our surroundings. All creative executions convey a sense of optimism and possibility, that no matter the economic climate, you can still make your home as special and unique as you are.
