Sustainable design focused duo bring Mobalpa to Islington

A leading French kitchen manufacturer is celebrating the opening of its new showroom in Islington in October.

Mobalpa Islington, on Essex Road, is part of Mobalpa’s continued growth plans in the UK and is owned by husband and wife duo, Kwong and Vivien Thai, who have backgrounds in construction, sustainability and insurance.

Creating four full time jobs and following an investment of £250K, the Islington showroom features design synonymous with the Mobalpa brand by showcasing a modern way of living with kitchen products, storage solutions and open plan living areas displayed in a real setting.

Kwong, who has over 25 years’ experience in the construction industry, and with a keen interest in sustainable buildings and design, said: “As well as quality kitchen cabinetry straight from the French Alps and innovative designs, Mobalpa is a brand with an emphasis on protecting the environment through its use of renewable energy, recycling industrial waste and numerous environmental accreditations which really appealed to me.

“The on-going business support along with my team’s interior design and retail skills, means Mobalpa Islington has an unparalleled offering of kitchen and living space design.”

Kwong added: “In north London, we’re seeing an increase in homeowners leaning towards modern kitchen design and open plan living areas, together with innovative design solutions; this is something we are really looking forward to working on with our customers.”

Cyril Raberin, UK Franchise Director at Mobalpa commented: “We’re delighted to welcome Kwong and Vivien to the Mobalpa team and see a presence for the brand in the Islington area. Mobalpa Islington is the fourth of our London showrooms and we’re looking forward to introducing the north London market to our French kitchen furniture.”

The opening of the Islington showroom follows the successful launch of Mobalpa Richmond, Chelsea and Pinner in the last two years as part of the business’ unique franchise model which is expected to open a further 5 branches across the UK by the end of 2016.
