High-end furniture retailer moves into Gold Coast showroom

Max Sparrow Richmond-2Max Sparrow, the high-end furniture brand owned by Coco Republic, has leased a 747sqm retail showroom at the Brickworks Centre in Southport.

It is the brand’s first Gold Coast showroom after establishing sites in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane over the last few years.

The Brickworks Centre is a multifaceted dining and lifestyle destination owned by the developers of Brisbane’s James Street. It is home to the Ferry Road Market and has become a destination for affluent locals for shopping and dining.

Max Sparrow began its ‘click to bricks’ strategy in 2013, opening a pop-up showroom in Sydney, which led to a permanent store. In April 2015, the business set up a showroom in Brisbane.

“Max Sparrow launched online in 2013 and after a very successful platform was established within Australia, they took the next step into bricks and mortar stores,” CBRE’s Anna Dunworth who negotiated the lease for a five year term with another five year option.

“The Brickworks Centre was an obvious choice for Max Sparrow,”said Dunworth.

“It wanted to be adjacent to other high end furniture retailers and be on a busy arterial road. The site offered them just that with excellent Ferry Road exposure and prominent signage opportunities.”
