12609-ff01.jpgSo you've got champagne taste and a skim milk pocketbook. You're bored with Ikea, Pottery Barn, Crate & Barrel and the like. You're not quite ready to plunk down a few car payments on the high end stuff you see in Architectural Digest, Living, etc., or House Beautiful but you've often wondered, "What happens to those pieces that were used to stage a house? Or the pieces that were ordered and came in in the wrong fabric? When a designer redoes a home in Beverly Hills, where do those pieces go? What about designer showroom pieces, what happens to them?" Wonder no more. The recently launched website, Former Furniture, is your latest resource...

An online marketplace for buyers and sellers of previously owned furniture and exclusive showroom pieces, it's a treasure trove of well-priced, beautiful furniture and accessories. A cross between EBay and Craig's List and at a lower price point than 1st dibs, it's a welcome alternative to them all. Former Furniture was created by interior designer Lindsey Dann (see her house tour here), who saw the opportunity to assist her professional network and personal clientele and it's expanding from there. From photographing the pieces you're looking to sell to customizing the pieces you've purchased, Former Furniture acts as a conduit between buyers and sellers to ensure that both parties are satisfied with the process. You'll get the pieces you want for lot less than you'd pay for them retail; you'll sell the pieces you're trying to get rid off for a lot more than you might otherwise get and with a lot less hassle.
