We just got email from a friend asking us about Lushpad; she was shocked to discover we had never visited the site. We popped over to satisfy her, and boy are we glad we did! Lushpad is an online marketplace specializing in modern design, helping to match buyers and sellers across North America…

Lushpad just launched on August 1st, but already has some lovely pieces for sale. Based in Vancouver BC, Lushpad plans to eventually expand its offerings to include:

  • Articles about design classics

  • Collecting know-how and furniture care

  • Profiles of designers, artists and architects

  • Manufacturer overviews

  • Book reviews

  • A regular newsletter

  • A community blog

We hope that the narrow focus means pieces will be easier to find than on eBay and Craigslist, but suspect the prices will also be higher because of the specialized nature of the site. We would love to hear from any AT readers who are already using Lushpad to buy or sell furniture or art; please tell us about your experiences in the comments below.
