10 Best Magento 2 Examples Websites that You Can Learn From
Take a look at the best Magento 2 examples websites from real brands to see how the platform has transformed customer experience and accelerated business growth across industries:
1. Cox & Cox
The fast-growing online homeware, furniture, and textiles retailer realized they needed to upgrade their Magento Commerce 1 to support their progress.
To streamline their eCommerce store, Cox & Cox needed a flexible, powerful platform packed full of features. The brand decided to upgrade to Magento Commerce 2 in August of 2016. While upgrading their technologies, Cox & Cox can take advantage of the new web design at the same time.
The webstore with visual, structured navigation and simple Magento 2 checkout, is now easier to use and navigate while showing off beautiful imagery. Accordingly, the new site experienced an increase in average session duration and a 36.5 percent increase in pages per session.
2. Sigma Beauty
The beauty innovator Sigma Beauty planned to rebrand their entire site starting in 2018. Their current platform is not flexible enough to support their aggressive revenue goals for the years to come.
Sigma Beauty saw the need for a scalable platform to get them to market fast and create an engaging experience for both beauty enthusiasts and global retailers. That’s the reason why they chose Magento 2 for rebranding both their B2C and B2B online experiences.
Moving to the new B2C site, they reduce load times to 3+ seconds faster and the improved site performance enabled images to render quickly.
To streamline the online experience for their B2B customers, Magento Commerce 2 enables the brand to offer different prices on separate storefronts which can be managed from one admin panel. This improved customer experience keeps Sigma Beauty’s shoppers engaged and reduce 15% in bounce rate.
For a fine jewelry company with a long history like Boodles, keeping up with modern trends and the latest technology is a must. Their existing platform was holding Boodles back and didn’t support an omnichannel experience.
The new website needed to connect the Boodles in-store and online experience, making it easy for customers to view specific pieces online and book an in-store appointment directly to store staff. So it was crucial for Boodles to upgrade to Magento 2 Open Source platform.
The upgrade would enable a mobile-first brand redesign while boosting site speed, and allowing Boodles to expand into new, global markets.
Magento 2 drives Boodles users from browsing high-value jewels online to making an appointment for an in-store viewing. Since upgrading to Magento Open Source 2, Boodles’ total sales revenue rose by 175 percent.

7. Kurt Geiger
Lladró, the Spanish porcelain company specializing in hand-crafted figurines, was met with a need to expand their global digital presence back in 2018; and naturally, Magento was their first choice due to the platform’s inherent flexibility and scalability.
To achieve their goal of driving revenue through better shopping experiences, the brand looked for ways to implement new features and improve on the existing checkout flow. As a result, the new site which was launched with enhanced gallery, product pages, and friction-free checkout flow, was seen as a prime case study of experience-driven commerce.
After nine months since the new site was launched, they observed a 27 percent increase in online revenue and another 44 percent increase in online conversion. And since mobile is the future, the site did make some improvements on the mobile shopping experience as well, and saw mobile revenue rose by 18 percent as a result.
The successes of Lladró aren’t limited to just these, of course. The site also found that their marketing team, after the launch, has to spend less time managing the website and the product catalog. Content management is now significantly easier and to the point of effortless, with much of the routine work having now been automated.
Often seen wearing on celebrities, Catbird’s jewelry has always been “the go-to for cool-girl jewelry”. However, as with the majority of brands, Catbird struggled to provide a meaningful experience for mobile buyers. Their former Magento 1 site—while functional—was not enough for their end goal of providing an elegant, yet fun and functional mobile commerce experience. So, naturally, Magento Commerce 2 was their first choice for an exceptional and robust online shopping experience.
“We needed better storytelling through content pages, high-quality product detail pages, and a more intuitive navigation to help cultivate our customer base, and communicate our vision.”
— Anna Mikkelsen, eCommerce Director at Catbird.
After the new launch of their website, the on-site shopping experience for mobile users was indeed overhauled. The new navigation is more streamlined and straightforward, while still emphasizing on media content which is their main selling point. Checking out is also a breeze with Magento 2, as Catbird buyers now have more options to Instant Checkout, or pay with PayPal Express Checkout and other payment methods.
With such subtle changes, the brand did observe significant changes in overall conversions (17 percent) — and especially for the mobile front, the brand witnessed a healthy 39 percent growth in mobile revenue, proving that the campaign was a step in the right direction.
