Let’s face it, that perfect sofa that you fell in love with two years ago just isn’t speaking to you anymore and you are drooling over the pumpkin and celendon room you just pinned to your Pinterest board. It’s time for a change.
So, you spend hours checking every estate sale from Park Cities to Southlake and you end up with an empty gas tank and a chipped, antique bowl like the one you ate ice cream out of at your grandmother’s house.
Luckily that soon won’t be a problem. Viyet, a luxury furnishings e-shop that’s available in New York and LA is heading to Dallas. Viyet is a consignment marketplace for designer furnishing so you can find someone that really loves your old couch while choosing your own designer piece at an complete steal. The company, launched by Rachel Rodin and Louise Youngson-Klasfield, was founded two years ago in New York City. When they expanded to Los Angeles they began to get calls encouraging them to come to Dallas as well. The partners spent the summer getting to know Dallas, the designers, and the market in preparation for the company’s welcome arrival here.

Viyet was founded in 2013 because Rodin and Youngson-Klasfield were tired of giving away their high-end furniture when the wanted to replace it. After all, there isn’t much of a market for Eames chairs and Liaigre sofas on Craigslist. Launching an online platform that showed only luxury, designer furniture proved to be a life-changing move. A brilliant, financially sound, life-changing move.
The white glove consignment service is the perfect answer to our penchant for change. A team of curators evaluates, photographs, and arranges for the pick up and deliveries of the items sold on the site. It’s easy, it’s affordable, and it’s fun.

Perusing the new arrivals on the website we saw a George III style armchair for a mere $405 — at least $1,000 off of the retail price. There was also a Henredon Milano Leather swivel chair for under $3,000. The site even offers thoughtful details on the materials,the condition, and delivery information. You aren’t roped in to the asking price, either. If you happen to like the art of bargaining then you can always make an offer. There’s even the option of paying for the merchandise on payments.
It just doesn’t get much better than that. Are you ready, Dallas? We sure are!
