DIANA TOI is Spanish and gained a degree in Business and Management from Barcelona University. However, she just loves interior design, so much so that she chose to study the discipline as a hobby. Such was her passion, she took an interior design correspondence course while pregnant.
Running a new business, looking after four children and having a very successful husband, Richard Westcott, must make great demands on her precious time, but no one would ever know as she is so calm, patient and considerate.
Diana has opened KA, a home furnishings store in Lagos, and the business is going from strength to strength. She chose to open a KA franchise because, when she was searching for new curtains and upholstery for the family’s new home, she felt that the choice KA offered, when she searched their website, was just what she wanted; satisfying her criteria without being too expensive.
Being Spanish, Diana knew of KA, as the company has already been established for over 30 years in Spain. Another deciding factor was the exceptional quality of the products, the variety, and the fact that so many new collections are introduced all the time. For example, KA’s new lighting collections, gorgeous children’s range and outstanding leather sofa collection.
To give you a feel of the breadth of KA’s success, Diana, in conjunction with their vastly experienced contracts division in Madrid, is just completing a contract for 300 fully furnished apartments in Albufeira.
Diana is also about to completely furnish two show houses to the very high standards that KA is known for worldwide.
Few home décor businesses in the Algarve have the technical experience and the flair of Diana and KA. They deliver the very highest standards and attention to detail throughout the project so that the finished package is personalised for each client.
Every piece of furniture in the enormous KA range is handmade, unique, authenticated and guaranteed for total peace of mind.
Diana does have a very experienced sales adviser, Isabel, in the showroom, giving her flexibility to look after her new and developing client base. There are plans for growth, as Diana wants her business venture to get the recognition it deserves; beautiful products that have to be seen, efficient service and total commitment to client satisfaction, whatever the size of the project.
A very interesting point is the careful layout of the store, the colours and looks are cleverly displayed, with every range coming with samples you can take home, making it easy to see what works for you.
The full colour catalogue and website will truly provide you with a vast choice. One of the other great things is that very often fabrics can be supplied within eight to10 working days. KA in Lagos offers a make-up and re-upholstery service and curtains can be supplied to suit the needs of the client – Diana has just supplied a full house of curtains for a client in the UK!
Diana has the knowledge, professionalism and experience, and she wants her clients to know that she is fully committed to making the buying experience a lasting pleasure, so that her customers can pass on advice and guidance for friends and family.
