Lushpad – Modern furniture at a bargain

If you are in the market for some great modern furniture but don’t want to pay an arm & a leg, check out Lushpad.  It is a meeting place for collectors & sellers of secondhand modern furniture.  You can browse furniture by manufacturer, designer, artist, and item type.  On the educational side, you can also learn about the designers by reading their biographies.  As for product knowledge, they provide articles on topics such as how to spot a knockoff.  They are also planning to provide professional assessments of what items might be worth.  So if you have a great piece that just doesn’t work for you anymore, send in a picture and they will give you a rough idea of what it’s worth after their panel of experts have evaluated it.

Many items listed would be considered “pricey” but there are also great bargains for contemporary and mid-century modern furniture.   And if you are already in the market for great furniture, you already know that you should spend a bit more for quality pieces.

Secondhand is not for everyone.  But for some of you, I know this will be a treasure trove so enjoy!
