Krbnyc
KRB is a distinguished design showroom founded by Kate Rheinstein Brodsky, renowned for her unique blend of classic and contemporary styles. Located in New York City, KRB offers a curated collection of exquisite home decor, antiques, and exclusive furnishings. Kate’s discerning eye for detail and passion for interior design have positioned KRB as a go-to destination for those seeking sophisticated and timeless pieces that transform any space.
Requirements
KRB approached Daminico with the need to redesign its existing website on Shopify while establishing Kate Rheinstein Brodsky as a prominent designer. Despite having a strong brand presence and distinctive product offerings, the current website did not fully capture the essence of Kate’s design philosophy. The objective was to create a website that highlights Kate’s expertise, showcases the unique product range, and provides a seamless shopping experience for users.
Challenges
The existing website failed to present the brand's vibrant and sophisticated image and lacked essential e-commerce functionalities. Additionally, the design needed to better highlight Kate Rheinstein Brodsky’s prowess as a designer and narrate a story that captivated visitors. The website also had to be mobile-responsive to cater to a wider audience and ensure a consistent user experience across all devices.

Using our expertise in Shopify and understanding what makes customers buy decor online, we implemented several key features and design elements
Mega Dropdown Menu
We organized products and categories intuitively for seamless navigation using a Javascript Mega dropdown menu, making it easy for customers to find what they need.
Cart Drawer
