Where To Source The Best Vintage Furniture
Vintage furniture is what gives a home character – who doesn’t love a well-curated vintage piece like a Marcel Breuer chair or a Noguchi table? Finding a gem like that isn’t always easy, and not everyone has the patience to look through flea markets or antique boutiques. Fortunately, online vintage shops do exist, which makes furniture hunting possible from the comfort of your living room couch. See our selection of favorite online vintage furniture to help you source that perfect one-of-a-kind piece.
Selency (previously known as Brocante Lab) is a French online marketplace, also the first second-hand design platform in Europe, founded in 2014 by a couple from Bordeaux. The online market offers a selection of pre-loved pieces and works as a middleman between buyers and sellers – a win-win situation as sellers can give a second life to their items, while buyers can limit waste and buy consciously. The furniture’s style ranges from Scandinavian to mid-century, which makes Selency the furniture treasure trove of the internet.
No wonder why Chairish calls itself the design world’s indispensable marketplace, their curated collection comprises vintage, antique and contemporary pieces by the best artisans, dealers and galleries as a Le Corbusier Modernist Cowhide chair or a Charlotte Perriand cabinet. With nearly 20,000 sellers and millions of shoppers, the online shop is quickly becoming the mecca of home furnishing and art thanks to their amazing selection, world-class expertise and easy service.
Coming Soon is known as the effortlessly cool New York design shop.

The creative concept allows for you to easily spend hours scrolling though their treasures.
