It is not difficult to understand how Tequila Kola, the home furniture store located on the first floor of Horizon Plaza, and with a discount outlet on the 17th floor, can be so many things to so many people. The shop, renowned for its extensive upholstery and furniture collections, has further expanded its range in the past year. 'Part of our uniqueness is the fact that we are so diverse. That diversity and breadth and depth of product are what customers want these days,' says Geoff Fuller, managing director of Tequila Kola. That philosophy drives the store's entire business, including upholstery. The brand carries a massive range of upholstery with different fabrics from cotton to jacquards, with a variety of colours and patterns available. In addition, a wide range of fabrics from Britain's Designers Guild and Fabricut from the United States is also available at the store. 'We have a lot of fabrics in stock already, from Italian to Belgian, leather to mock suede. Customers can get a custom-made sofa in just two weeks,' he says. Tequila Kola also offers an extensive range of furniture. There are 40 sofas, 27 styles of dining chairs and 12 types of beds on the store floor. The store designs about 60 per cent of its products, but also carries other brands. It is the exclusive distributor for Halo, an award-winning British furniture and accessories brand, and has devoted an entire room to showcasing the company's wares. Tequila Kola shops are also renowned for their displays. Each room has been well-planned, crafted around a theme and punctuated with vibrant colours. The format places furniture and accessories in context so customers have an easier time making selections. 'The way you present your product is as important as the product itself. Most people have trouble imagining what the products would look like in their homes. Our displays are set up in such a way that they give you plenty of good ideas. 'This pushes people to buy more readily because they can imagine the products in their own home,' Fuller says. 'You would normally have to have a really good eye to pick out stuff. At our store, our displays do the work for you.' Fuller advises customers to visit both the first floor, that stocks all of the latest fabrics and furniture pieces, and the discount outlet on the 17th floor, which sells end-of-the-line or leftover products at half the original price. Making their debut in the latest autumn collection are chairs in bright velvets, striking chrome Hollywood-esque studio lighting, new chandeliers and fabulous clocks. The company is looking at expanding to Shanghai and Beijing, where it already has a core customer base. Tequila Kola was launched in 1991 by Fuller and his wife Michelle Koller, the creative director of the brand. They aimed to fulfil a market niche at the time by meeting the demand for funky and colour-driven products that can easily help redefine an apartment.
