Juliettes Interiors has become the first high-end retailer in the UK to accept Bitcoin. The luxury, designer furniture and residential interior design service firm have joined the likes of Expedia, Dell, Microsoft and Save the Children in offering this as an alternative to traditional payment methods.
By adding the digital currency to its list of payment options, Juliettes Interiors is leading the way in the luxury market, embracing new technologies and the ever-increasing ease and security provided by smartphones and tablets. As one of the first in London to drive an all-electric Tesla car, the company’s director Juliette Thomas believes in looking forward – in life as well as business.
“I realise we stand alone in our sector at the moment but, within 18 months, I think this will be a part of everyday life – just like the Tesla. The world around us doesn’t stand still and, as a company, we must always be ahead of the game. We have been looking at digital currencies for some time now and we know that many of our clients are serious Bitcoin investors. Bitcoin has a growing user base around the world but, until now, our customers have been unable to use it to purchase ultra-high-end, luxury furniture and interior design. We believe it offers our UK and international customers a real choice, and payments are quick, easy and hassle-free.” – Founder, Juliette Thomas
London is leading the way in the UK’s Bitcoin revolution, with 17 Bitcoin ATMs and around 70 retailers now accepting the digital currency. And it’s not just the big multi-nationals getting in on the act. Small and medium businesses are also making the switch, with more joining the BTC wave daily.
