Meet Chairish


Chairish calls itself an "online consignment destination that makes it fun & easy for design lovers to buy & sell pre-loved home décor to one another."  In reality, it's this and much more.   Chairish.com launched in 2013 and allows users to purchase pre-owned designer furnishings at the click of a finger. 
 
It's vision started by a husband and wife team that realized they had a handful of high-end items that they wanted to get rid of, but no sensible way to advertise them.  They soon realized that this was a challenge shared by others.  In addition, there was a market out there for buyers who desired to purchase high-end furnishings directly from the seller.  Thus, a handful of highly experienced co-founders was gathered to help this vision become a reality.

The site is easy to navigate, allowing users to shop by category (Seating, Lighting, Tables, etc).  Or topic:  "Curator's Picks", "New Arrivals", or "Markdowns." 
Every week Chairish marks down by 25% (or more) items that have been in their store for over 30 days.  Since all Chairish items start out at a great price, the markdowns are unbelievable. 

Buyers can also opt to "Buy Me Now" or "Make an Offer" for the item.  Shipping costs to your location are easily calculated.  Their motto:  Buy.  Sell.  Adore.

I can't even describe the guilty pleasure I feel when I peruse the amazing offerings from Chairish.  Each selection is even more brilliant than the previous.  I can get lost for hours...

It's like sitting down with your favorite design magazine and looking at one inspiring image after another.  Total eye candy.  Only, in this case, it's all available for purchase and can be yours at the touch of a finger.  And the products are affordable.  Attainable.  And just utterly amazing. 

This is like craigslist, ebay, and etsy all merged into one.  Here are some of my top picks:

  

Vintage Powder Blue Fiberglass Patio Set, sold by Parker Kennedy

 Dorothy Draper Style Chest of Drawers in Pink, sold by Vanessa D.

Vintage Baker Furniture Bamboo Chippendale Chairs, Sold by D.C.

 Recently, Gwyneth Paltrow's goop.com asked the founder of Chairish, Anna Brockway, to open up her "black book" of experts in the vintage furniture resurrection area.  Excitingly, Anna listed my fave boys at Parker Kennedy as the experts in Atlanta for laquerwork.  (More on Parker Kennedy soon). 

Parker Kennedy also featured in Southern Living Mag, March 2014


Chairish has also been featured in publications such as  InStyle, Domaine, Elle Décor, House Beautiful, The Oprah Magazine, and glo to name a few. (Read more about their press here). 

Chairish  has also launched a super user-friendly iphone app (see here). 

You must keep your eye on Chairish.  Soon, more of my Vivid Hue Homies will begin using this site to sell their products (think Blaze and Bloom) and you'll be able to buy even more premier items right from your sofa! 

Buy. Sell. Adore.

Have you had any experience with Chairish?  Have you been to their site and what do you think about their offerings? 


Please note:  I was not reimbursed by Chairish in any way for this review.  All reviews expressed are my own.  As I always say, I love when I find a company that makes me happy and pleased and love to share it with others.
