James Viney, owner of Clockwork Components has started the New Year with a refreshingly upbeat approach to the madness that the current political landscape has brought about.

Drip drop taemin lyrics “But whilst at a macro level this means we go into 2017 with some caution, we are optimistic about the prospects for the UK furniture trade this coming year.

“I think most of us are aware and appreciate the effect on Sterling is not a positive one, but the upside is, it may hopefully assist many of our customers to be more competitive against their overseas counterparts.” On a further positive note, James outlined his expectations more specifically for Clockwork: “For us, we see the coming year as both exciting and challenging, we have to work with the broader hand we have been dealt.

Spring training 2017 Our objective is to generate fresh ideas to the market and introduce new concepts for furniture to our customers this year; allowing them to offer innovative designs that give them an advantage in the market place.”

Clockwork’s principal plan for 2017 is to develop and introduce products that add functionality to furniture design.

Technical director Paul Jones told us more: “Having the Omega brand under our umbrella along with their product range has allowed us to access areas of the recliner market not previously available to us.

Alongside the essential range of zero wall recliners for chairs, it is the inclusions of mechanisms into sofas where there has been most growth.

As the demographic of the consumer has changed, so too have the requirements of the designers who are looking to incorporate motion into contemporary furniture for this ‘new breed’ of recliner customer.

The importance that Clockwork places on partnerships with leading component brands continues to be a guiding principal for its operation. Minor league baseball teams The end of last year saw the addition of the Stalmot & Wolmet brand to the distributor family.

Operations director, Oliver Tattersall took up the story to explain how this came about: “We’ve worked with Stalmot for more than 10 years and always enjoyed an excellent working relationship. Masonry supply The innovation and design of some of the new products they have developed in the last year have really caught the imagination of our customers and this led to a conversation about formalising a closer collaboration going forwards.

Whilst ‘uncertainty’ seems to be the word most commonly used by the media, it is a different story at Clockwork and undoubtedly the enthusiasm shown, and plans outlined to us during this visit has made for a refreshing start to the year!
