2019 by Laurie Northington in Business Strategy, Industry
Furniture distributer Coaster Company of America has announced a rebrand of its company, and the creation of three new sub-brands; CoasterEveryday, CoasterEssence and CoasterElevations.
The corporate rebranding was announced on the opening day of Las Vegas Market and includes a new visual identity, website, corporate strategy, and new design elements at its Las Vegas Market showroom.
“We have completely refreshed our corporate identity, including our logo as a signal to the furniture world of our commitment to the future, and our ongoing mission to add value in every relationship, including our employees, retail partners and their customers,” said Janice Yeh, director of business operations for Coaster. “Our new logo, which features a red arc and updated typography represents renewal and bridges consumers to our dealers.”
Each of Coaster’s new sub-brands is positioned to speak to a unique audience, yet the company plans to communicate with consumers at all stages of life. CoasterEveryday are quality home furnishings designed for those who are more budget oriented. For those who are more family-focused or who are looking for more upscale furnishings, CoasterEssence was created. This brand is positioned to speak primarily to Younger Generation X and Millennials. CoasterElevations is the new premium quality brand that is designed for those who desire more luxurious home furnishings and geared toward Gen-Xers and Boomers.
The Scott Living line is also available through Coaster’s retail partners. This quality brand is based on the design philosophy of the Scott Brothers, which blends heirloom industrial and modern artistic tastes to create distinctive home furnishings.
As part of its new comprehensive digital strategy, Coaster is completely redesigning its website. “Today, more furniture shoppers are going online to experience furniture brands,” said Carol Sham, marketing manager for Coaster. “We intend to speak directly to the consumer. Our new website will enable a consumer to interact with each Coaster brand and help them see how our furniture products can fit into their lifestyle. Most importantly, our digital strategy focuses on driving the consumer to our retail partners, where they can experience Coaster home furnishing products up close and get assistance in making a purchase decision.”
Moving forward in the coming months and years, Coaster’s strategic focus will be to communicate directly to the consumer while continuing to reaffirm its long-term commitment to the success of its dealer partners. The company will introduce additional new tools to encourage the consumer to engage with the Coaster brand, helping them in their journey towards making a purchase decision at a local retailer. A new ad campaign has also been created to reveal how Coaster home furnishings touch lives in every stage of life.
