Indifurn’s delectable Indian furniture now available at their new premises at Windhoek’s Old Power Station

Indifurn’s delectable Indian furniture now available at their new premises at Windhoek’s Old Power Station

Namibia’s doyenne of hardware retail, Erika Preuss, has recently relocated her Indifurn furniture business from Windhoek’s Prosperita industrial township to the Old Power Station, much closer to her market and the central business district.

Indifurn is a specialist furniture retailer, offering a large variety of Indian furniture which is both unique and very durable. The shop also stocks an assortment of Indian lamps as well as decorative accessories and fittings for the discerning home owner.

After Mrs Preuss sold Ark Trading in 2016 she decided to carry on with the furniture department. She then started Indifurn and for three years it was situated in Prosperita.

But the construction of the dual carriage highway between Prosperita and the Eros Airport proved to be a major business disruption and the number of clients declined. Mrs Preuss said she realised she had to make a decision whether to stay or find a more suitable location. Eventually she decided to relocate to the Old Power Station.

“Many customers are now pleased to have their favourite shop nearby and there are lots of parking,” she said, adding that the move has paid off and she now sees much more business walking through the door every day.

Her main clientèle comprises lodges and restaurants who love the old world charm of the Indian furniture. Indifurn also has a substantial private home owner client base.

“If you are looking for exquisite furniture, Indifurn is the place to visit,” she quipped.

Trading hours are from Monday till Friday, 07:30 to 16:30 and on Saturdays from 09:00 to 12:00.

“Feel free to come and browse and take advantage of the specials on offer,” she invited.
