Shopify plus agency case study - Mylands logo

Case study: Bringing interior design’s best-kept secret to new customers

[ Client ] Mylands
[ Platform ] Shopify Plus
[ Tech ] Yotpo


For Mylands, an engaging and emotional website on Shopify Plus that could tell a colour story was essential.

Britain’s oldest family-owned and run paint and polishes manufacturer, Mylands, was established in 1884 and continues to operate in Lambeth, South London. Originally, Mylands was supplied to trade business only and was a much-loved choice for set designers.

As Mylands looked to make a transition to D2C, it was clear the digital experience for consumers needed upgrading to reflect the knowledge, experience and premium nature of the brand.

Mylands was awarded a Royal Warrant in 1985, so our design had to sit comfortably with a brand rich in heritage and proud of its quality product but that could relate to a modern audience.

Our approach

Propeller worked to create a versatile landing page format using Shopify Plus and Yotpo, truly utilising the breadth of tools available on the platforms.

With thousands of products, we expanded pages to include as much information as possible without being too cluttered or noisy.

Work completed on navigation and filtering meant customers were able to narrow down their search to effortlessly find exactly what they needed. It was as close to replicating an in-store experience as we could get.


This new D2C approach resulted in:

  • Mylands’ conversion rate stayed consistently above 3%
  • Traffic growth of 30%
  • Sales doubled within the first six months of the site going live.
  • Average order value increased by 31%
  • A total sales growth of 45%.

Key project deliverables

  • A showroom built on Shopify Plus.
  • Editorial style sections with strong eCommerce UX
  • The ability to browse by room type.
  • ‘House of Colour’ – engage with a breadth of examples of how to for coating your home in the most recent collections. 
  • Expansive product details pages offer full treatment advice and inspiration galleries.
