As human beings, we need to feel secure whether it is at work, in relationships, or in our finances. The past year has been extremely challenging for us due to unforeseen circumstances, and the feeling of uncertainty. While many countries faced the lockdown during the global pandemic we have been sitting at home and wondering. Wondering if our friends and family will be safe. Wondering if we will keep our jobs. Wondering if this will be over soon. Such conditions left as mentality tired and delicate to the outside world. Nonetheless, as the new year approaches and we look back at everything that happened we try to shed some positive light on the past events.
For La Vida Furniture, we have done great progress that we are proud of. We faced the challenges, embraced them, and pivoted towards growth. To celebrate the end of the year, we decided to recap the highlights.
At the beginning of the year, we decided to implement a downloadable library accessible to all users where the purpose is to feature not only the collections that are available on the website but also the ones that are available for special orders. You will find everything you need, from the living room and dining room to the bedroom and outdoor furniture.
In the midst of the lockdown, we switched to remote work, as most of the companies did. Since the world is changing, we have to change with it. During this period, naturally, people switched online and spend more of their time on social media. As part of our strategy, we started to focus more on digital marketing and other online platforms to help us grow. It was important for us that the whole team remains within the company and stays connected through the tough times. Adopting new ways of work can be intimidating however, the daily zoom calls allowed us to check up on each other and understand that we are not alone- we encouraged the team to participate in brainstorming sessions and team-building exercises.
Once the lockdown has been lifted and we returned back to our almost normal routines, we have been fortunate enough to participate in Dubai Fashion Avenue 2020 and lets us tell you how good it was to finally meet and be around amazing people (with precautionary measures of course!).
Fast forward to today, La Vida Furniture now offers interior design services where we use our innovative approaches and extensive expertise to turn your concept from a sketch into a reality.
Despite the pandemic and the things that were brought on us, we maintained positive energy (most of the time) manifested our doubts and turned them into achievements.
