A platform initially meant to sell high quality design furniture. Extended the portfolio by wallpaper, carpeting and lighting. It can be further extended to a shopping platform for all aspects of interior design. I want to sell the project because of a lack of time on my side. I see the high potential of the project and would not like to see it slowly dying. Someone with marketing skills can easily expand from the current foundation.
Financials and traffic
I have partnered with a number of European furniture manufacturers, usually small or medium sized companies, who were interested in doing business on a dropshipping basis as an alternative sales channel. It was easy to find partners.
