Description

Who are we?
Vinterior is the place where the world can buy and sell vintage furniture.
In less than three years, the Vinterior Marketplace has grown into a community of over 1,600 independent furniture dealers worldwide. We work only with selected professional sellers to ensure that our customers can find products that match the values that matter to us: character, a passion for craftsmanship and an obsession for delivering exceptional customer service.
As of May 1st, 2019, over 130,000 different pieces of furniture, lighting and decorative objects were available on Vinterior. And this number continues to grow. We offer over 25 styles, including Mid-Century, Art Deco, Retro, Modern Scandinavian, Shabby Chic, Bauhaus, Industrial, Boho, Rustic, British, French, Italian and Chinese Antiques.
We provide inspiration and unique content to help individual shoppers to create their dream home with confidence. We also offer dedicated support to allow interior and property trade professionals to source for projects with convenience and speed.
We’re only three years old, but we’re already disrupting the furniture industry and we’re looking to triple in size this year. Since starting, our sales have increased a hundredfold, we have hired more than 25 passionate employees, and there’s still more to come!
The global furniture market is a $700 billion industry, with Europe alone spending over $313 billion in furniture retail last year. With the backing of top tier investors, we are on a mission to put Vinterior pieces in 1 million places within three years and create a world where everyone can work, live and play in a remarkable space.
