I've run a few Shopify dropshipping stores - the usual: cheap gadgets etc from Ali, synced up with Oberlo and running some FB and AdWords ads.
I recently took a note from this thread and have had a look around the Shopify furniture landscape. I'd like to get into this 'niche' with very British high end furniture, I can build a credible brand around this area and am happy to spend money on adverts in magazines such as Country Life, print and deliver leaflets in afluent parts of the country and pay or collaborate for blog and social media content. I spoke to some of the owners of stores that contributed to that thread and they mostly agreed that trade shows were a good way to find suppliers and that suppliers should always be local. I'd like to source products within the country that I am selling in (1. UK 2. USA), but don't have the ability to visit trade shows or meet with suppliers and offer wholesale purchases.
I am wondering if anyone has any other input into anything to do with this 'niche'! Any ideas, stories or tips are welcome - particuarly about product sourcing.

You really have a very good and interesting business idea to make your own furniture brand as I understand it. In my opinion, you can earn a lot on this business. To be honest, I don't really know much about furniture and how to deliver it to a client. But I know for sure that any service needs its own, high-quality and very convenient website through which the client can not only find most of the products, but also order them online. I can give you a good example is a service https://thekairoscollective.com/lighting.html that sells unique, rare and very beautiful furniture. They have everything very nicely organized by tabs and all the necessary information is at the client's fingertips. In my opinion, if you want to have a successful business, then you need to strive for this type of website.
